Today is Israel's 60th birthday and the first well wishes have arrived. Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad released a statement via his official news agency in which he calls Israel a "stinking corpse."
"Today the reason for the Zionist regime's existence is questioned, and this regime is on its way to annihilation," he said.
Ahmadinejad added that Israel "has reached the end like a dead rat after being slapped by the Lebanese" - a reference to the 2006 war between Israel and the Shiite Hezbollah militia.
Wait, what? Am I high or did Israel win that little catfight? Oh right, they did. In fact, hasn't Israel won every war it's fought since its inception?
The Arab world is like a schoolyard bully, picking on the littlest kid on the playground. Except this little kid knows karate.
More information on the aforementioned "July War" here. I especially like the part where Hezbollah continues to fire guns and rockets at Israeli soldiers after the official ceasefire agreement was reached.
