IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency
Tehran, Oct 26, IRNA
President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said here Wednesday that establishment of the Zionist regime was a move by the world hegemonic system and arrogant powers against the world of Islam.
Speaking at a gathering of the representatives of the
Palestinian combatant groups residing in Tehran, members of the society to defend the Palestinian nation and members of the Pupils Islamic Association, he added that a historical fight is underway between world arrogant powers and the Muslim world.
Turning to the fluctuating trend of campaign against the global arrogance by Muslims over the past three centuries, the chief executive noted, "The world arrogant powers founded the Zionist regime at the heart of the Muslim world as a base for their own expansionist intentions."
He said that today the Palestinian nation, as the representative of Islamic Umma, is standing up to the world hegemonic system.
"Ever since the Palestinian nation focused attention on promotion of an Islamic atmosphere and attitude, day-to-day success and progress have been witnessed among Palestinians," he said.
Ahmadinejad pointed to the meeting dubbed "A World Without Zionism" and criticized those sowing the seed of disappointment in materializing such a goal and attempting to undermine the world of Islam.
He added that a world without the US and Israel would be possible.
In another part of his speech, he urged the need for unity, solidarity and consensus on the Palestinian cause by the Islamic states.
"Today, supporting the Palestinian nation and objective is a definite and indispensable principle for continued campaign to achieve victory.
"The palestinian issue has not ended. It would end when a government belonging to the Palestinian people takes over, the homeless return home and a free election is held to form a government representing all people," he added.
Ahmadinejad noted that those from faraway countries who are in Palestine with the hope of plundering this land have no right to make decision about the country.
The president called on the public and the Palestinian combatant groups to be vigilant and added that if they manage to overcome the new conspiracies of the world arrogant powers, the way would be paved for destruction of the Zionist regime and establishment of a national Palestinian government.
"Given that the issue of Palestine is a key matter facing the world of Islam, a certain group cannot declare their views to the effect behind closed doors," he added.
The chief executive referred to the genocide of Palestinian women, men and children by the Zionist regime and demolition of the houses of the oppressed nation and said, "The Zionist regime claims to advocate the human rights, while it has stockpiled a great amount of nuclear weapons."
He pointed to his recent meeting with the ambassador of one of the countries which held talks with Iran about the country's nuclear issue and said, "During the meeting I told the foreign diplomat that they support the Zionist regime, but when it comes to Iran they preach the human rights."
