"They (world powers) should not think that the Iranian nation and other nations in the region would take off their hands off the throat of the Zionists and their supporters."That quotation in the first paragraph (from Ahmadinejad) flips off the United Nations.
Ahmadinejad also reaffirmed his opinion that "Zionists" should move to empty lands in Europe or North America and out of the Middle East entirely.
The claim is based on the belief that, as of the original sweep of Islam through the region of Palestine, the land itself belongs under Islamic rule.
By 651 C.E., the last of the Persian emperors had been assassinated. Portions of the Byzantine Empire, notably Syria, Palestine, and Egypt, fell rapidly to the Muslim armies.
