Israel “wiped off the face of the map?”

On Antiwar, one rumor about war put to rest by Arash Norouzi. “Everyone knows” that President Ahmadinejad of Iran threatened to wipe Israel off the map..or ever globe.

Except he never did.

A misquote gratefully snatched up and distorted by international news feeds like AP might end up being the bloodiest mistake in translation ever made.
