Ahmadinejad: Israel Is Filthy Bacteria

In the latest verbal attack on Israel, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad called the Jewish state a “filthy bacteria” established to oppress other nations in the region.

"The world powers established this filthy bacteria, the Zionist regime, which is lashing out at the nations in the region like a wild beast," Ahmadinejad told supporters at a rally.

Israel won support from the other nations that “created it as a scarecrow, so as to keep the people of this area under control," he said.

Referring to the recent assassination of Hezbollah terror chief Imad Mughniyeh, the Iranian leader said that Israel "uses terror as a threat every day, and afterwards is happy and joyful,” the Jerusalem Post reported.

In earlier comments, Ahmadinejad has called Israel a “disgraceful blot” that should be “wiped off the map,” adding menacingly that the Jewish state is “heading toward annihilation.”

Last week other senior members of the Iranian hierarchy stepped up the verbal assault on Israel.

The Islamic Republic News Agency reported that Commander-General Muhammad Ali Jafari of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps wrote in a letter to Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah that he was convinced "Hezbollah's might is increasing with every passing day, and that in the near future, we will witness the disappearance of this cancerous growth called Israel."

The same day, the Chief of Staff of the Armed Forces of Iran, Hassan Firouzabadi, said in a letter to Nasrallah that “combatants of the Lebanese and Palestinian Islamic resistance [would] continue the struggle until the complete destruction of the Zionist regime and liberation of the entire Islamic land of Palestine."

The Israeli mission to the United Nations has written a letter to the U.N. Security Council protesting both statements.

The letter calls on the international community to condemn "these outrageous anti-Israel, anti-Semitic and racist threats, which undoubtedly constitute direct and public incitement to commit genocide."
