Ahmadinejat: European tax channeled to Zionists

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says the tax paid by the European people have been going to “Zionists’ pockets” for the past 60 years.

Ahmadinejad made the remarks during a Saturday meeting in Tehran with international personalities, IRNA reported.

Ahmadinejad noted that Zionists have, in return, been paying for the election campaign of certain political parties in the West.

He described the Israeli regime as a very complicated organization, which is in control of those holding monopolies of power, wealth, and media.

Ahmadinejad described Israel as the symbol of the ‘anti-humanistic’ ideology of Zionism, stating that the regime adhered neither to religion nor to ethics and only pretended to be Jewish.

Those meeting with the Iranian president had gathered in a conference venue in the Iranian capital earlier in the day to establish the Press Union of the Islamic World.

Elsewhere in his remarks, the Iranian chief executive hailed the establishment of the union. He called the union’s evolution an effective step towards the formation of a bigger united front against the domineering powers of the West and said observation of candor and justice were the most important elements governing media affairs.

Representatives from 38 countries joined the event. The union is meant to solidify the position the Muslims express on the world events through the media in the face of the monopoly enforced by the western outlets.

During the gathering, Iranian Culture Minister Mohammad Hosseini told Press TV, “The Islamic Awakening in the Middle East is a very important issue for us and the role of the media in these events has been an undeniable one. The main responsibility of the Press Union of the Islamic World is to show a different side of the story, which has for long been told by the western media.”

The union was established as the Iranian capital is hosting the 18th Tehran’s International Exhibition of the Press and News Agencies, with 600 press representatives from the country and 100 others from almost 50 world states in attendance.
