Ahmadinejad: Is Israel more sacred than God?

23 Apr 2009 

The Iranian president rakes supporters of Israel over the coals, saying they 
hold Zionism more sacred than divine faiths and freedom of speech. 

"They have made an idol called the Zionist regime, and they say that you can 
talk about anything but that," Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said in an address to a 
crowd in Islamshahr -- south of the Iranian capital Tehran. 

President Ahmadinejad was referring to Western inclinations toward Israel and 
the adoption of laws in Europe that ban criticism of the events pertinent to 
the Holocaust and the figures of casualties released to the public. 

The influence of the Zionist movement is such that US politics revolve to a 
large extent around the interests of the Israeli lobby even though the US image 
overseas is marred as a result of its support. 

Republican congressman Ron Paul has told Press TV that the there is no 'such 
thing as independent Israel doing anything', describing US support for Tel Aviv 
as an obstacle to the changes sought by US President Barack Obama. 

President Ahmadinejad on Thursday labeled support for the philosophy of Zionism 
as a form of "modern idol worship" that plagues the Western world and endangers 
the pursuit of justice for all. 

"The Zionist regime wages war on a nation with white phosphorous bombs in an 
area of nearly 360 square kilometers but the current US administration and 
their mouthpieces continue to say that the Palestinians are the terrorists," he 

"They label those who are defending themselves 'terrorists' and kill them." 

According the Iranian president, the West has given rise to the fulfillment of 
Zionist objectives by creating lies about the Holocasut even they themselves 
have learned to hold "sacred". 

President Ahmadinejad has questions the story behind the Holocaust and the 
number of Jews killed, saying academics should be allowed to conduct research 
on the issue. 

"They insult the prophets of God and justify themselves with talk of 'freedom 
of speech'. But, when it comes to Israel, they say you are not allowed to speak 
a word. They want the entire world to worship their idol," Ahmadinejad 

President Ahmadinejad recently described as 'racism' the 60-year-old Zionist 
quest to drive Palestinians from their land for the establishment of a purely 
Jewish state.
