Ahmadenijad: My Wish is to Pray in Jerusalem

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad visited Cairo on Tuesday and met with Islamic leaders and said he would be happy to visit Gaza and that he awaits the "liberation" of Jerusalem.

"If the Egyptians approve of it, I will go visit the people in Gaza," he said in an interview with a newspaper affiliated with Hizbullah. "But my wish is greater than this. My wish is to pray in Jerusalem after its complete liberation."
