Iran’s President: Jews Are Peace-Seeking People
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad condemned the crimes committed by Israel against the Palestinians and other world nations, and said the Zionists’ biggest crime is that they attribute themselves to the Jewish community who are peace-seeking people.
The occupation of Palestine is only the small portion of the crimes committed by the Zionist regime and their biggest crime is that they attribute themselves to the Jewish community, President Ahmadinejad said in a meeting with the leaders of the International Jewish Anti-Zionism Network in New York.
Referring to the fact that the Zionists are trying to attribute their ugly measures to the Jews, he noted that the Jews are peace-seeking people and favor broader friendship in the world like others followers of the divine religions such as Muslims, Christians and others.
Spokesman for the International Jewish Anti-Zionism Network, David Weiss, for his part said that there are a large number of Jews in the world who are against the notion of Zionism and establishing a Zionist state.
In relevant remarks in 2011, Rabbi Weiss also condemned the usurper Zionist regime, and said Zionism has stolen the name of Judaism and twisted it to oppress the Palestinians.
“Zionists have totally twisted … Judaism and what is humane, and godly,” Rabbi Weiss said on the sidelines of the International Conference on the Global Fight against Terrorism in the Iranian capital of Tehran in June 2011.
“Zionism is the abuse of what is legitimate and godly such as Judaism to oppress people, and it is the root cause of the endless river of bloodshed,” he added.
“We, as Jews, have seen the maligning and misconstruing of what and who is evil and who is a victim,” the rabbi continued.
He stressed that Palestinians, who are the real victims, are labeled as villains and as against the Jewish people.
“The world should comprehend what is true terrorism and should unify to stop it speedily and peacefully,” he noted.
“We come to present and to clarify the truth that the ones who are committing terrorism … are the Zionists,” Rabbi Weiss reiterated.
