But, no hostility towards Jews...

The Iranians continue their genocidal rants against Israel. But guess what? They have no hostility towards Jews!
UN Secretary General Kofi Annan expressed dismay about the remarks and reminded all member states Israel is a long-standing UN member "with the same rights and obligations as every other member."

Iran, however, was unrepentant, confirming its dramatic shift to the right that came with Ahmadinejad's shock election win in June.

The spokesman of Iran's Revolutionary Guards, Sayyed Massoud Jazihiri, backed up Ahmadinejad by describing Israel as a "cancerous tumor."

He said the West "was right to be afraid, because two decades ago when the Imam [Khomeini] called for Israel to be wiped off the map they thought it was a slogan, but as time passes we are seeing signs of unity in the Islamic world."

"We have no doubts that at the end of the road, the victory of Muslims and the defeat of Israel is inevitable," Jazihiri said.

Iran's Foreign Ministry also ordered its diplomats to lodge official protests over Europe's attitude toward "Zionist crimes".

"In protest at the exacerbation of the Zionist regime's crimes and its suppression of the Palestinian nation, Iran's embassies in Western countries were instructed to convey Iran's strong protest to European governments for their indifference toward the issue," the Foreign Ministry said.

But the Iranian Embassy in Paris said Iran had "no hostility" toward Jews.
