A pertinent piece of information from the former Spanish prime minister, Jose-Maria Aznar:
Aznar's aides refused to give Haaretz the exact quote, but mentioned an article Aznar has written in the past on his meeting with [Ayatollah Ali] Khamenei.
"He received me politely," Aznar wrote, "and at the beginning of the meeting he explained to me why Iran must declare war on Israel and the United States until they are completely destroyed. I made only one request of him: that he tell me the time of the planned attack."
The meeting was five years ago. Iran is only stronger today; and far closer to getting nukes. Khameini is still in power.
