5. The idea of literal national suicide (even by Moslems) is silly.
Especially if you don't have the proper weapons to guarantee you'd get anything accomplished for it.

11. Some "expert" wrote in the WSJ that on Aug 22 Iran could fire nukes.
And that this shouldn't be discounted because they're fanatics and even national suicide at the hands of Israel's nukes isn't enough to deter fanatics.

Take with a cargo freighter full of salt.

29. This "expert" thinks Iran has nukes to fire?
How is this person an "expert" if (s)he doesn't know something is so ridiculous, fundamentally.

Unless Pakistan or India or, heck, even Putin, for that matter, sold them the nuke, they don't have 'em.

But, at least now people on this thread know what the stupidity's about.

31. For others wondering about the date like me, I found this:
"What is the significance of Aug. 22? This year, Aug. 22 corresponds, in the Islamic calendar, to the 27th day of the month of Rajab of the year 1427. This, by tradition, is the night when many Muslims commemorate the night flight of the prophet Muhammad on the winged horse Buraq, first to "the farthest mosque," usually identified with Jerusalem, and then to heaven and back (c.f., Koran XVII.1). This might well be deemed an appropriate date for the apocalyptic ending of Israel and if necessary of the world. It is far from certain that Mr. Ahmadinejad plans any such cataclysmic events precisely for Aug. 22. But it would be wise to bear the possibility in mind.

A passage from the Ayatollah Khomeini, quoted in an 11th-grade Iranian schoolbook, is revealing. "I am decisively announcing to the whole world that if the world-devourers wish to stand against our religion, we will stand against their whole world and will not cease until the annihilation of all them. Either we all become free, or we will go to the greater freedom which is martyrdom. Either we shake one another's hands in joy at the victory of Islam in the world, or all of us will turn to eternal life and martyrdom. In both cases, victory and success are ours.""

34. sorry...wrong answer...
...Iran gave the vague date for their response to the UN resolution on uranium enrichment as or towards the "end of Rajab"...which roughly corresponds to the fourth week of August...somehow or other, in the fetid mind-swamps of Christo-Freeperland, 8/22 became the day of the Raptard...when Iran nukes Israel with WMD's they don't have, the US retaliates, and Jesus--or perhaps his maid--comes down to earth with a giant vacuum and sucks up all the faithful...leaving a "left behind" death squad to exterminate the rest of humanity...i am given to understand the guy (he's in his mid-90's now and probably senile) who wrote "Clash of Civilizations" (Bernard somebody or other...not Malmud, is it?) came up with the date. Junior had him over at the WH last week or so for an update.

What exactly did he say will happen? Besides, there are several Islamic holidays throughout the year, except their calendar is based on the Lunar year so their holidays rotate all the time.

No, especially since it looks like Israel is in a weak diplomatic state right now. It would be as someone else said, Moslem state suicide.
