Nuclear attack on Israel

According to the BBC, "Iran's moderate former President Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani has won election to Iran's powerful clerical body, the Assembly of Experts."

In 2002 the "moderate" Rafsanjani called for nuclear attack against Israel! According to a 2002 MEMRI special dispatch, Rafsanjani said:

"If one day...the world of Islam comes to possess the weapons currently in Israel's possession [meaning nuclear weapons] - on that day this method of global arrogance would come to a dead end. This...is because the use of a nuclear bomb in Israel will leave nothing on the ground, whereas it will only damage the world of Islam."

If the BBC thinks this is moderate, I wonder what constitues a "radical."
