Iran, Syria mock U.S. policy; Ahmadinejad speaks of Israel's annihilation'

JERUSALEM -- The presidents of Iran and Syria on Thursday ridiculed U.S. policy in the region and pledged to create a Middle East "without Zionists," combining a slap at recent U.S. overtures and a threat to Israel with an endorsement of one of the region's defining alliances.

The Obama administration is trying to build an international coalition behind economic sanctions aimed at curbing Iran's uranium-enrichment program, which the United States and others fear is aimed at developing nuclear weapons. The United States also recently announced that it will send an ambassador to Damascus after a five-year absence, part of an effort to weaken Syria's relations with Iran and discourage the country's support for militant groups antagonistic to Israel.

But the message delivered by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in a joint news conference was sharp and spoke to a shared sense that Iran is gaining influence in the region despite U.S. efforts. Until the outcome of the broader struggle over Iran's nuclear program becomes clear, analysts here say, it is unlikely Syria will change direction -- or that progress can be made toward an Israel-Syria peace agreement.

When are those anti-Iranians who write here going to stop fabrication of
the news?

So long as there are uninformed Iranians in the midst of USA and elsewhere, they will continue repeating fabrications over and over and again over to "make believe" such stories. 

Such practices in the US have been much more obvious in recent years for just about anything. The pre Iraq invasion is a prominent example. The latest one (though not the last one ) is the Ahmadinejad's anhilation of Israel story. 

In light of this discussion, the link bellow sheds some light on the depth this manipulation in the US journalism.

When are those anti-Iranians who write here going to stop fabrication of the news?  One example here is that Ahmadi "spoke of Israel's annihilation"?  He never said such. He said the ZIONIST REGIME (does not in anyway mean Israel as a country) shall be ended.  Don't you guys ever get tired of lies?  The world by now has recognized Israel and its regime for what it is: a brutal, murderous, occupation force, annihilating the Palestinians and taking over their land.
