Iranian Prez: excuses? excuses?

The BBC, in its pretty straight forward coverage of this statement by the Iranian President [it was the lead item on its program "The World"] observed that some people tended to attribute his earlier statements [Israel should be wiped off the face of the earth and the Jews should go back to Europe and Europeans should give them a territory] to his "inexperience" as a President. What does "inexperience" have to do with making statements such as this?

The BBC then went on and sort of saved itself by observing that that excuse now has no credence since this is his third outrageous statement about Jews.
