Ahmadinejad: Israel is root cause of problems for Muslims
Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Saturday that the Zionist regime is the root cause of problems of the Islamic nations. In his inaugural address to the Ninth Conference of Foreign Ministers of Iraqi Neighbors Plus Egypt and Bahrain, President Ahmadinejad said that regional states and Islamic nations should mobilize their resources to deal with Israel.
According to IRNA, Ahmadinejad said that the other challenge faced by Islamic nations is threat and occupation citing the occupying regime. "The Zionist regime is not of origin. It is a forgery and imposed entity on the region," he said.
"Our enemies have set up the Zionist regime in the heart of the Muslim World through numerous ploys as a means to create unity among themselves and division among Muslim nations," President Ahmadinejad said. "They spared no effort to support the Zionist regime up to now. They use huge among of money from pockets of their people to support Israel. They also sacrificed their political philosophy in which they believe 'liberalism' for the sake of the Zionist regime.
"The unlimited crimes of the Zionist regime in massacring defenseless young Palestinians, destroying their homes and farms are done with the support of Western governments. For them breaking the law and violating the rights of Palestinian democratic government are all right," he said.
"Unfortunately, certain powers regard the human crisis the Zionist regime is creating as an opportunity for earning an income from arms sales to regional governments. So that they impose backwardness to the regional nations. Instead of spending on progress and development, they spend their resources to purchase arms."
