In a press conference early Thursday afternoon, UK Prime Minister Tony Blair said that he finds it astounding that President Ahmadinejad has called for Israel to be "wiped off the map" as a solution to the Middle East's problems. "If someone else were to call for Iran or Syria to be wiped off the map, people would be tearing the house down!" he added.
