ANALYSIS/OPINION:

Iranian dictator Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, in a recent visit to Syria, said, “The Zionist occupiers are destructive microbes.” He needs a basic science-course refresher.

A microbe is defined as an organism that causes disease. I must disagree with Mr. Ahmadinejad and submit that the word microbe would more accurately describe Iran’s presence in the world. Iran has been supplying missiles, improvised explosive devices and military equipment to entities throughout the Middle East that have caused many thousands of deaths.

Conversely, Israel has helped people in more than 100 countries in various areas of health and agriculture, and this aid has enabled numerous people to continue living who would have perished without Israel’s aid.
