Replace “Israel” with the word “Islam” and he would have finally said something that began to make logical sense for once …
JPost – “Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad referred to Israel as a western ‘tool to dominate the Middle East’ and an ‘insult to all humanity,’ in a speech given at a Tehran rally marking the annual Al-Quds (Jerusalem) Day, according to Iran’s IRNA news agency.
Protesters held massive rallies in cities across Iran on Friday, marking Al-Quds Day, an anti-Zionist event which calls for the liberation of Palestine.
‘Today, Israel and the Zionist entity are against the preservation of all human rights and human dignity,’ IRNA quoted Ahmadinejad as saying at the event.
Demonstrators waved Palestinian flags and held signs bearing slogans such as ‘Down with the US’ and ‘Death to Israel’ at Friday’s rallies.
Iran’s Fars News Agency reported that millions of people were expected to take part in the events in over 550 cities throughout the country. The report added that the demonstration was not only against Israel and the US, but the silence of the international community at ‘the crimes committed in the occupied lands.’
Al-Quds Day rallies were also scheduled to take place in other countries throughout the Muslim world on Friday. Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah was expected to address the crowd gathered at the organization’s Al-Quds Day celebration Friday evening at Al-Mahdi – Hadath School in the southern suburb of Beirut, according to Lebanese television station Al-Manar.” Read more.
