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.
