Iran: Israel “cancerous tumor,” Obama on same wrong path as Bush

Leading a concentrated outpouring of venomous hate, Iran’s supreme ruler Ayatollah Ali Khamenei declared Wednesday, March 4, that President Barack Obama is pursuing the same “wrong path” as his predecessor George W. Bush in supporting Israel – “a cancerous tumor” – and he saw no change.
This was Tehran’s response to the moderate language coming from the new US president and Obama’s willingness to engage in diplomacy to resolve the impasse over its nuclear program.
Addressing a conference in Tehran on the Palestinians, he said: “Another big mistake is to say that the only way to save the Palestinian nation is by negotiations.” Negotiations with whom?” he asked. “With an occupying and bullying regime…? or negotiations with America and Britain who committed the biggest sin in creating and support this cancerous tumor…?
“The way to save [the Palestinians] is by standing firm and resisting [euphemism for terror].”
President Mahmoud Ahmandinejad told the conference, which was attended by all the Palestinian factions including Mahmoud Abbas’ Fatah, “The story of the Holocaust, a nation without a homeland and a homeland without a nation… are the biggest lies of our era.”
He went on to say: “The continuation of the Zionist regime on even one inch of the land of Palestine means the continuation of crime, occupation, threat and insult to the nations.”
Alil Jafari, commander of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards’s contribution to the event attended by 80 delegations was this: “All Israel’s nuclear installations are within range of Iranian missiles.”
