MK Kara: 2,000 Blue and White Balloons to Greet Ahmadinejad

On his visit to Lebanon this week, Iran President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad may or may not throw a “symbolic stone” over the northern border to express his hatred of Israel. Reports on whether the stone-throwing will actually take place are unclear, but one thing that is clear is that Ahmadinejad will be greeted by a volley of blue and white balloons – 2,000 of them – courtesy of Likud MK Ayoub Kara.

“We are planning to fly 2,000 balloons across the northern border to Lebanon when Ahmadinejad comes for a visit Wednesday,” Kara told Voice of Israel radio. “The balloons represent the fact that the Jewish people have come home after 2,000 years of exile, and they are not going anywhere.” Kara, who is himself not Jewish, said that he appreciated Israel's freedom and democracy – and that were it not for the Jewish people, the entire Middle East would look like Iran.

“It was my idea to organize the event, and I am hoping that thousands will come,” Kara said of the rally, set for 11 a.m. Wednesday in the northern border town of Metulla. “Several MKs, including Nissim Ze'ev, Michael Ben-Ari, and Yulia Shamalov-Berkovich told me they would join as well."

They should send a Predator with a Hellfire missile to hunt him down and kill him.

It would be a shame if an Israeli helicopter happened to fly through at the exact moment all the balloons were released.

Kara has attempted to communicate his feelings to Ahmadinejad several times. “I even sent him a letter, in Persian, addressed to the Presidential Palace in Tehran,” in which he expressed the Israeli nation's desire for peace, and its willingness to defend itself. “He hasn't answered yet,” said Kara. “Maybe he's still thinking about what I wrote.”

This will be Ahmadinejad's reply: Israel must submit!
