Iranian President: Zionists want to control the world
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Friday slammed the "ambitious policies of the Zionist regime and arrogant powers." "They are free to say (whatever they want) but their words lack any credit. They are rude, falsely thinking that the whole world should be subordinate to them," Ahmadinejad said during an interview with IRNA on the sidelines of the Qods Day rallies in Tehran in response to angry worldwide reaction to his recent statements regarding the need to wipe off Israel.
Turning to Israel's suppressive policies, Ahmadinejad stressed, "The oppressed Palestinians are martyred by Zionists, their properties are looted, their houses are bombarded and they are assassinated but the Zionists expect that no one should object them." "My word is the same as that of Iranian nation," he noted when asked whether he had any message to the world.
Earlier Friday, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad took part in the World Qods Day rallies underway on Tehran streets. The president joined the huge crowd of Tehrani demonstrators to voice his support for the Palestinians.
