Ahmadinejad again threatens that "Israel is heading for disappearance"

During a visit to Damascus, Iran’s Ahmadinejad says, “The Zionist entity is heading for disappearance. The philosophy of its existence is over, and time is not running in the favour of the occupiers.”

“They have reached a dead end. All of their threats are the result of their weakness,” Ahmadinejad told a joint press conference with Syrian president Bashar al-Assad. Israel regards Iran under Ahmadinejad, who has repeatedly denied the Holocaust and challenged the right of the Jewish state to exist, as a threat to their survival.

Ahmadinejad, who arrived in Damascus earlier on Thursday for talks with with ally Assad, warned against any military action from Israel. Israeli hawks have argued in favour of a preemptive strike on Iran’s suspected nuclear weapons programme. “And we know – both our peoples know, and the whole region knows – that if the Zionist entity repeated the same mistakes, it would mean its inevitable end,” he said.  TIMES LIVE
