Zionism to the nth degree

Here's a fragment of a speech by Israel Foreign Minister Silvan Shalom, 
delivered on March 30, 2003 before the American Israeli Public Affairs 
Committee (AIPAC, http://www.aipac.com) (same event where Collin Powell 
spoke chillingly on the war against Iraq):

<<Even as we speak, allied forces are engaged in combat in Iraq. While 
Operation Iraqi Freedom is advancing, it is not a simple undertaking and 
involves high risks. The tyranny of Iraqi rulers today has its roots in 
ancient Babylon of biblical times. The prophet Jeremiah referred to the 
dangers posed by Babylon, Iraq of today, to the region, and to God's 
punishment for the cruel despots of the land of two rivers. Some would say 
Jeremiah prophesied current events. He said, and I quote, "I will raise 
against Babylon and [sic] assembly of great nations from the north country, 
for she has sinned against God.">>

Fundamentalism and dangerous ignorance in its purest state.
