Iranian President Calls for the Annihilation of Israel

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is at it again, publically declaring that the ultimate goal of world forces must be the annihilation of Israel.

The comments were posted on Ahmadinejad’s website on August 2.

"Anyone who loves freedom and justice must strive for the annihilation of the Zionist regime in order to pave the way for world justice and freedom,” said the Iranian President.

In an address he made to ambassadors from various Islamic countries, the Iranian president claimed that a "horrible Zionist current" had been managing world affairs for "about 400 years." He then went on to blame “Zionists” for the world’s problems because they are “behind the scene of the world’s main powers, media, monetary and banking centers. They are the decision makers, to the extent that the presidential election hopefuls must go and kiss the feet of the Zionists to ensure their election victory.”

This is not the first time that Ahmadinejad, who has called the Holocaust a myth, and spoke at a 2006 Holocaust Denial Conference in Tehran, has called for the destruction of Israel. In 2005 he read a speech in which he called for the Jewish State to be "wiped off the page”
