I though Religious folks were supposed to be peaceful, I guess that the ocupation causes stress throught the Ummah right?
The former president of Iran is calling on the Muslim world to develop nuclear weapons to annihilate Israel.

At a Dec. 14 lecture at Tehran University, Ali Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani said that if "the world of Islam" obtains nuclear weapons, it should use them against Israel, whose second-strike capability is not enough to destroy the entire Muslim world. "Nothing will remain after one atom bomb is dropped on Israel, while a similar attack would only injure Islam," Rafsanjani said.

The speech is believed to be the first time that such a prominent leader in the Muslim world has explicitly called for the annihilation of the Jewish state through nuclear warfare.
