Islam Times reports from FNA: "Following the recognition of the evil regime by the United Nations 60 years ago, the worst crimes were committed in Palestine. Millions were displaced and are still longing for returning home," Ahmadinejad said, addressing large and fervent congregation of Iranian people on Tehran University campus.
Stating the regime has in the past 60 years threatened all the nations, Ahmadinejad said that there was no government and nation to be safe from its menace.
They waged five wars, killing tens of thousands and rendering hundreds of thousands homeless again, he said.
"This is the first regime which assassinates the Palestinian and international personalities with previous notification and knows no limits for its murders," he contended.
They have violated the humane norms, he said, noting that they blocked the supply of food, water and pharmaceuticals to the Palestinian children.
Elsewhere, Ahmadinejad pointed to the International Quds Day rallies held in Iran today, and described the day as the common point among divine believers and justice seekers in the world.
Ahmadinejad further noted that today is the day of destiny because the Quds Day is the most significant international day for various reasons.
Millions of Iranians toke to the streets in all Iranian cities across the country on the International Quds Day to voice support for the Palestinian nation against Israeli regime.
Iranians across the country, including in the capital Tehran, alongside other people around the world held massive anti-Israel rallies on the last Friday of Ramadan in opposition to the continued occupation of Palestinian land by Israel.
The International Quds Day was started by the late Founder of the Islamic Republic, Imam Khomeini, in 1979 as a way of expressing solidarity with the Palestinians and underscoring importance of the holy Quds to Muslims.
International Quds Day is an annual event opposing Israel's occupation of Beitul-Muqaddas. Anti-Zionist rallies and demonstrations are held on the last Friday of Ramadan in Muslim and Arab countries around the world, and especially in Iran.
