Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Aug. 16 rejected a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict on the grounds that it would give an “opportunity for the Zionists to stay in the region for another hundred years,” according to a televised speech.

Continuing his penchant for anti-Semitic and anti-Israel rants, Ahmadinejad called the existence of Israel “an affront to humanity” and added that the “Zionist regime is a malignant cancer.”

“The presence of Zionists on even one centimeter of Palestinian territory is dangerous,” Ahmadinejad said at Tehran University on “Quds Day,” held on the final Friday of Ramadan as a display of Iranian solidarity with the Palestinians.
