Beatin' the drum

In fact, Ahmadinejad never used the phrase “wiped off the map” in his speech. Instead, he said Israel should be “eliminated from the page of history,” which is different than saying Israel should be wiped off the map.

A couple of weeks ago, Juan Cole did an excellent job of translating and explaining the context of Ahmadinejad's infamous comment.

The nuance, it burns!
