Why is Gordon Brown repeating a mistranslation ?

By The Editor

22/07/08 - - "World Press" -- -- The Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's never called for Israel "to be wiped off the map". This has been confirmed by many Iranian language experts. That the mainstream media have repeated and echoed the original mistranslation from 2005 attests to their bias and hidden agenda.

However, it is shocking for this mistranslation to be repeated TODAY by the Prime Minister of Britain, when addressing the Israeli parliament. Another sign of selective amnesia abd double-standards by ignoring Israeli threats of attacking Iran. Let us not forget that Iran doesn't have the capability to wipe Israel off the map, but Israel has more than enough to wipe most of the world off the map (thanks to its 200+ nuclear weapons built thanks to help and assistance from Britain, USA etc.).

Part of the shock is that Gordon Brown's audacity in thinking he could get away with it. Does he really think he has the world's media in his back pocket ? Has he forgotten the alternative media ?
