TEHRAN (Fars News Agency)- President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad here Tuesday said that the great powers’ support for the Zionist regime has endangered their dignity and interests, adding that the fate of the Israeli regime is similar to that of the former Soviet Union.
Addressing participants in the International Conference on ‘The Holocaust, Global Vision’ in Tehran, Ahmadinejad said those who have rendered support to the Zionist regime should be aware that the lifetime of Israel will be soon over and their interests as well as reputation will be endangered.
“The same way the ground was paved for the creation of such a regime, the Zionist regime will be dismantled by its supporters,” he stressed, adding, “As the Soviet Union disappeared, the Zionist regime will also vanish and humanity will be relieved and liberated.”
The president further viewed the Zionist regime of Israel as a constant threat to the Middle East nations, which has made regional countries divert their resources from development to spending them on purchasing arms.
“And this arms race among regional states will increase discord and differences among them,” he continued, reminding that formation of a Zionist state and using the Holocaust as propaganda are all aimed at dominating the region.
He said today nations are seeking justice and are well aware of the fact that the brutal and barbaric measures of the Zionist regime are no self-defense.
Addressing the western countries, particularly the US and EU, Ahmadinejad underscored, “You may no longer term atrocities of the Zionist regime self-defense or describe the resistance of the Palestinian people against occupying invaders as terrorism.”
He further voiced support for the formation of a fact-finding mission on the Holocaust as proposed by the Tehran conference, and demanded the western countries to show respect for the members of the team, or at least void disturbing them, “so that further surveys are carried out, issues are clarified, and criminals are sentenced.”
The president reminded that the facts gained by a team of researchers who have worked on the issue show that if the underlying truth of the Holocaust is revealed and if the issue of the Holocaust is crossed out, then the root causes of the major problems and crimes in the Middle East region will be removed.
He said 60 years after the World War II the world is still suffering the aftermaths of the war, and further questioned, “How long and to what extent should the consequences of the second World War go on?”
Ahmadinejad reminded that the results of a Holocaust fact-finding commission can put an end to the 60-year-old dispute on the issue of the Holocaust and its scale, which he described as a major dispute which has been the source of many grave consequences of the World War II.
He reiterated that the results to be gained by such a fact finding commission will be to the benefit of the world peace, and hoped that proponents of the Zionist regime will respond positively to such a human call, reminding that the world problems can be solved in a friendly, rational and calm atmosphere.
The president also pointed out that the West’s cooperation in this regard serves the interests of the great powers as well.
He then addressed the attendants in the conference and, noted, “Iran is your house and the house of the world free-thinkers, where everyone can fully express his or her own views and ideas in a friendly, peaceful, open and calm atmosphere.”
To conclude his remarks, the Iranian president expressed the hoped that when the participants of the Tehran conference return to their own countries, they wouldn’t be harmed by their governments and that such governments show that they respect freedom.
The international conference dubbed ‘The Holocaust, Global Vision’ kicked off work here on Monday in an attempt to examine the issue in the presence of the pros and cons and in an unrestricted atmosphere.
