MK Arye Eldad (National Union) said on Wednesday that the IDF should kill Ahmadinejad if he visits Lebanon's border with Israel.

"The history of man-kind would be different if in 1939 somehow, a Jewish soldier had succeeded to kill Hitler," Eldad said.
He continued, "If even for one moment, Ahmadinejad is in the IDF's sights on the day that he comes to throw stones at us, he cannot be allowed to return home alive."
"The State of Israel was established so that the Jewish people can be responsible for their own destiny," Eldad said.
“Israel will not be harmed by the visit,” one Israeli diplomatic
official said. “We are not afraid of his visit; he will be just another
terrorist in southern Lebanon. It is Lebanon that needs to be concerned,
allowing the Iranian Trojan horse into the country. It is their
sovereignty that is being chipped away.”
The official added that
“there have been greater intellectuals than Ahmadinejad who have thrown
rocks at the border, and didn’t do much damage,” a reference to Edward
Said, the late Columbia University professor who demonstratively threw
rocks at Israeli soldiers from the border in 2000.
