Iran’s Rouhani calls on Mideast states to ‘drive back Zionism’

AFP, Tehran

Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani called on Middle East states yesterday to “drive back Zionism”, in an Army Day tirade against the Islamic republic’s archfoe Israel. Speaking flanked by top generals before troops began their annual march-past, Rouhani also sought to reassure the region that the weaponry on display was for defensive purposes and not a threat.

“The region’s nations have lived alongside each other for centuries and never had a problem... If there is a problem, it is caused by others,” he said in the speech broadcast live on state television. Rouhani assured neighbouring countries that Iran’s armed forces are “never against you or your national interests” but are “standing against the aggressors.” “The power of our armed forces is the power of the region’s countries, the Islamic world.” he said.

“If we have a problem in the region today, its roots are either with Zionism or America’s arrogance.” Rouhani called on Muslim nations to band together and “restore the historical right of the nation of Palestine,” saying that “Zionism ... has been committing crimes in the region for the past 70 years” ,“The final victory will surely be with the righteous,” he said.
