Count the lies about Iran

Israeli Ambassador to the U.S. Michael Oren appeared on the Colbert Report last night. Count the lies in this statement made by him (and unchallenged by Colbert):
"Iranian leaders are every week threatening to wipe us off the map if they get those nuclear weapons."
Of course the truth is that Iranian leaders have never threatened to "wipe Israel off the map," much less have they done so "every week," nor have they ever spoken about what would happen "if they get those nuclear weapons," since not only have Iranian leaders never spoken of a desire for nuclear weapons, they have spoken repeatedly (up to and including a fatwa from Supreme Leader Khamenei) about their opposition to nuclear weapons, including not only potential weapons of their own but actual weapons in the hands of those who have repeatedly (and not just implicitly) threatened military action against Iran — the U.S. and Israel.
