Ahmadinejad Warns Israel against Fresh Offensive on Gaza
TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Saturday warned Israel against any new plans to start a second war on the Palestinians in the Gaza Strip.
Ahmadinejad, who made the remarks during the inauguration ceremony of the Middle East’s biggest iron ore pelletizing factory in the southern city of Sirjan, said Zionists are looking for an excuse to attack Gaza.
“What I want to say to Zionists and their supporters is ‘enough with the crimes. Do not make your load (of sin) even heavier than it is,” he said.
The president said “the myth of Israel’s invincibility is over” and Israel is merely seeking to maintain its image as a dreadful power to preserve its existence.
“They had created the illusion in everyone’s mind that they (the Zionists) cannot be defeated. But that myth was shattered after the regime suffered two defeats, once in southern Lebanon and later on in Gaza,” Ahmadinejad said.
“Now, they are trying to make up (for those defeats), as they know that they will reach the end if they lose the awe attributed to them and if regional nations no longer fear them.”
“What kind of democracy do such measures represent? We like you to revise your behavior and side with the nations,” Ahmadinejad said addressing the western countries, specially the US.
