The pro-Palestinian convoy's visit to Iran is historic - Mahmoud Ahmadinejad
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said that the journey of the convoy "Toward Beit-ul-Moqaddas" is an historic event and the Israel is afraid of such movements.
President Ahmadinejad made the remarks among a group of international activists travelling to Iran with the framework of a convoy entitled "Toward Beit-ul-Moqaddas" in Tehran on Sunday.
He noted that the existence of the Zionist regime is an insult to the freedom.
"The Europe and the US spend tens of billions of dollar on the Israel every year to help the apartheid regime to continue its unlawful occupation of the lands which belong to the Palestinian nation,' President Ahmadinejad added.
He strongly criticized the Western states for their lack of tolerance vis-a-vis questioning the existence of Israel.
"In spite of apparent liberal claims by the Western countries, nobody is by any chance allowed to raise a question or conduct a research on how the Zionist regime was established," said the president.
"The issue of Palestine is not an argument between one person and another or a conflict created between the followers of one prophet and another, but it is the dispute over Palestine, a dispute over dominating and managing the world,' Ahmadinejad added.
The Iranian chief executive further stated that the Zionists try to pitch states and nations against each other and create a rift between governments and their people and spearhead international terrorism.
A convoy comprising a group of pro-Palestinian activists arrived in Tehran on Saturday. They plan to continue their journey to Beit-ul-Moqaddas where they are expected to be joined by thousands of more peace activists from around the world to mark the 36th anniversary of Palestinian Land Day on March 30.
