Israeli minister: It's OK to kidnap Iran president

JERUSALEM (AP) -- An Israeli Cabinet minister who helped kidnap Nazi mastermind Adolf Eichmann says the same tactic could be used on Iran's president.

The Israeli says "all options are open" for a man like Mahmoud Ahmadinejad (mahk-MOOD' ah-mah-dih-nee-ZHAHD') who he says "threatens genocide." He says the Iranian leader should be put on trial in the international war crimes court.

The 81-year-old security expert (Rafi Eitan) says he's only expressing his personal opinion.

Iran's leader is reviled in Israel because of his repeated calls to wipe the Jewish state off the map. His aggressive pursuit of nuclear technology is only fueling Israel's worries.
