Rantings from Iran

Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei recently announced that Israel will disappear from the “landscape of geography” and that its land will be returned to the ‘Palestinians’.  A few days later, on the occasion of Al-Quds Day, he characterized Israel’s administration of the disputed territories and, for good measure, the ‘formation’ of Israel as the root of "evil" in the Middle East which was a “conspiracy [of] colonialists and oppressors”.

On Friday, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad spoke of “the Zionist regime and the Zionists” as “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 “Uusurper Zionists” must be finished off and that “in the new Middle East there will be no trace of the Americans and Zionists".  Zionism is a "tool".
