Iran: As Long As Israel Exists, No Peace Or Tranquility In Middle East

(He’s right about one thing: Israel’s presence in the Middle East has kept the region destabilized for decades–only because it can’t get along with its neighbors on a respectable basis; acting wholly aggressive without abandon or caring what the consequences will be–believing that “peace through superior firepower” and the US’s backing will force its old enemies and new adversaries to *capitulate* just like that.

That kind of a blaise attitude won’t work.)

No tranquility in Mideast as long as Israel exists: Iran

TEHRAN (AFP) – Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Friday repeated his assertion that there will be no tranquillity in the Middle East as long as Tehran’s archfoe, Israel, continues to exist.

“As long as the Zionist regime exists, if only on a small piece of land in Palestine, the region will not see tranquillity” he said to a crowd gathered at the mausoleum of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini on the eve of the 22nd anniversary of the revolutionary leader’s death.

“So all the people of the region shall move towards the disappearance of American domination in the region and the disappearance of the Zionist regime,” Ahmadinejad said in the speech, which was broadcast live on state radio.

The hardliner has drawn international condemnation for his vitriolic attacks on the Jewish state and his dismissal of the Holocaust as a “myth.”

Iran has not recognised Israel since the 1979 Islamic revolution and backs Palestinian and Lebanese militant groups fighting against the Jewish state.

Ahmadinejad in late May reacted to President Barack Obama’s landmark speech on the Middle East, dubbing the idea of the creation of a Palestinian state alongside Israel as a “satanic plan” doomed to “fail.”

Obama said in the speech in mid-May that the borders of Israel and Palestine “should be based on the 1967 lines with mutually agreed swaps, so that secure and recognised borders are established for both states.”
