Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad accused Israel of perpetuating terror, and blamed the "Zionist regime" for starting both the first and second world wars.
Ahmadinijad said the "Zionist regime" was a "dreadful party" that "was behind the First World War and the Second World War. Whenever there is a conflict or war — this party is behind it."
"The Zionist regime is always doing the same thing. They destroy people’s homes and raze them to the ground," Ahmadinejad told the Washington Post on Tuesday.
"They have created a few major wars. They continue to assassinate and terrorize people; they continue their policy of coercion against other nations, including Iran," he added.
It remains unclear how a Zionist regime that did not exist until 1948 managed to catapult the world's great powers into global conflicts that began in 1914 and 1939 respectively.
Ahmadinijad then proceeded to slam the West for supporting the Jewish state, accusing the United States of sacrificing it’s "whole population" for "the interests of a few hundred Zionists."
"I think an important question that must be answered is, why do all US administrations always support the Zionist regime?" Ahmadinejad pondered.
"The United States is 10,000 kilometers away from Palestine, and other nations in the region are against the Zionists, but the United States and its allies in Europe continue to support the Zionist regime. Why?"
"I think you should have a referendum in the United States to see if the people want to use their resources and taxes for a number of killers," he added.
US polls continue to show strong support rising close to the seventieth percentile for Israel, with congressional support in the face of the coming PA statehood bid at the United Nations nearly unanimous.
Ahmadinijad expressed hope the PA drive for recognition at the United Nations will be successful, noting that the Islamic Republic is "against killing and massacres. We are against occupation."
