TEHRAN — Israel is a “cancerous tumour” that will soon be finished off, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Friday told demonstrators holding an annual protest against the existence of the Jewish state.
“The Zionist regime and the Zionists are a cancerous tumour. Even if one cell of them is left in one inch of (Palestinian) land, in the future this story (of Israel’s existence) will repeat,” he said in a speech in Tehran marking Iran’s Quds Day that was broadcast on state television.
“The nations of the region will soon finish off the usurper Zionists in the Palestinian land…. A new Middle East will definitely be formed. With the grace of God and help of the nations, in the new Middle East there will be no trace of the Americans and Zionists,” he said.
[...] Ahmadinejad, in his speech, claimed that “Zionists” triggered the first and second world wars, and had “taken control over world affairs since the moment they became dominant over the US government.”
He asserted that major governments, banks and media were in thrall to a Zionist cabal whose aim was to “destroy the cultures, values and sovereignty of nations.”
