Iran's supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, said Monday the death of Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon would be a serious defeat for United States policy in the Middle East, state-run radio reported.

On Thursday Iran's hard-line president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said he hoped for the death of Sharon.

This man is truly a LUNATIC!
He can't seem to go a day without provoking the US and Israel......

And if Bibi is elected I think Iran will be sorry to lose Sharon as a peace partner.
Bibi won't put up with unilateral retreat.

I wonder what they tell their followers each time these 'omens' proves false.
The Ayatollah is a funny man. ;)
actually, I think his death would be a defeat for Palestinians cause they have gotten a lot of concessions from a Sharon. Bibi would not be nearly as generous and would, if re-elected, most likely halt any discussion with them.
Thanks for the ping. Fox reports Sharon's new party gains popularity in polls after his stroke. Should Netanyahu be elected, Khamenei and Ahmadinejad are in for a rude awakening--No doubt they are pumped full of bravado by their Russian benefactors in the shadows. What a surprise when the air defense is not adequate and the dispersion and burial of the various sites does not prevent their atomization. Will Russia confront the U.S. in undisguised combat? No and again no. Regime change will drain the swamp this year though every mullah's fist be raised in megalomaniacal rant.
