Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says the West created Israel to control the Middle East, condemning the all-out Western Support for the crimes committed by the Zionist regime.
The Iranian president made the remarks at the closing ceremony of the 5th International Conference on the Palestinian Intifada in Tehran on Sunday.
Describing the creation of Israel as the most heinous historical crime, Ahmadinejad said that occupation of Palestine was an international issue and a crime against all humanity.
The Iranian president criticized the West for not tolerating any argument which involves the existence of Israel.
He added that Israel has been so sanctified in the West that any criticism of the Zionist regime is tantamount to being a terrorist.
“The only sacred thing in Europe is the Zionist regime,” he added.
The Iranian president said the Zionists had usurped Palestinian lands by colluding with the British and using their weapons.
Ahmadinejad said democracy and the human rights are a mere show in the West, as Western countries had supported all dictators in the past century.
He criticized the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), which he described as being at the service of the US for publishing the names of Iranian nuclear scientists so that the Zionist regime could target.
Describing Israel as a threat to all nations, he added that Zionism symbolizes the essence of the materialistic Western schools of humanism and liberalism.
Iran’s president said that the issue of Palestine was a criterion that could be used to separate between bullying powers and justice-seeking nations.
Delegates from 70 countries attended the two-day Intifada conference, which was held on the theme “Palestine, Homeland of Palestinians.”
The focus of the conference, which started on Oct. 1, was the restoration of Palestinian rights, including the right to return to their homeland and determine their destiny as well as the liberation of Palestinian territories occupied by Israel.
