Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, addressing the World Qods (Jerusalem) Day ralliers and Friday prayers worshipers, said Zionism is a political party that has taken captive western states and nations. "There is also a second idea which says western powers and statesmen have founded Zionism themselves and they are directing the Zionist game," he said.
"According to this idea," the president said, "The Zionist party is, as a matter of fact, these heads of western powers who are playing their role behind the curtain, but they have invented something dubbed as 'Zionism andoppressed jews'.
Addressing the western powers, Ahmadinejad said," I ask you, which one is the real Zionist? Are you captives or you are lying and you are the axis of Zionism?"
He added, "This is a serious question, if the Zionists control you, we and the other free nations are ready to help you to make yourself free from this criminal party's captivity and rescue your nations."
Ahmadinejad told western officials, "If you are behind the curtain, declare it. I am asking those governments, who support the Zionists to declare their position. But in any case they should know that they are responsible and are partners of the Zionist regime's crimes."
