Tehran

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s call for Israel to be “wiped off the map” has already inspired many of his countrymen. The day after the president’s speech, some 300 men and women showed up at the Tehran offices of the Headquarters for Commemorating Martyrs of the Global Islamic Movement to volunteer as suicide bombers in Israel. The semiofficial group said it had signed up more than 45,000 volunteers to undergo training for suicide attacks since it began recruiting in June 2004. Training can be waived for former members of the Revolutionary Guard.
