A quick example of Iranian hypocrisy

I found this story on today. (Here's a direct link:,7340,3404396,00.html)

Jews acting like beastly persons, Ahmadinejad says

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Friday that "there is a group occupying the young Palestinians while the latter are defending their mothers and fathers, and presenting them as terrorists.
"Do these criminals believe in God and in the Bible? They are like beastly persons; they have no faith in God. We object to the crimes making bad use in the name of Judaism," he added in a speech to the Iranian people. (Dudi Cohen)

OK - Without even going into whether or not you agree with Ahmadinejad's view of the Israeli vs. Palestinian fight, where is the similar criticism of the things that Muslims are doing in the name of Islam?

And, I also don't recall ever hearing Israel connect any of their military actions against Palestinian militants to religious beliefs, but simply as a response to Palestinian militants constantly firing rockets into Israeli towns, aimed at killing Israeli citizens.

A lovely example of hypocrisy and propaganda from a soon-to-be-nuclear state.
