The Foreign Ministry put out a list on Monday of outrageous anti-Israeli and anti- Semitic comments made by the Iranian leadership over the last month alone.
The 14 quotes, two from August 2 and all the rest gathered over the past week, were divided into three categories: threats, deligitimization and anti-Semitism.
Under the “destroying Israel category,” the ministry culled a quote from Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad taken from the Fars News Agency last Thursday.
“The Israeli regime is a tool in the hands of Zionists to control the Middle-East and the entire world,” Ahmadinejad stated.
The Iranian president further stated that “the international al-Qods day is the day of unity among all human beings to remove the Zionist black stain from the human society.” (…)
As for anti-Semitism, the Foreign Ministry cited the following report from the Islamic Republic News Agency published on Friday: “He [Ahmadinejad] said Zionists, who think solely of power, wealth and dominance over others, have been inflicting very heavy damage and suffering on the whole humanity for over 2,000 years, especially during the past four centuries.
