Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman Wednesday condemned the United Nations and European nations for making anti-Semitism look legitimate by sitting at meetings where Iran spreads hate of Jews.

Iran’s deputy vice president Mohammad Reza Rahimi charged at a UN conference in Tehran Tuesday that the Talmud teaches to "destroy everyone who opposes the Jews" and that Jews control the international drug trade.

“The fact that United Nations and European Union representatives still participate in conferences in Iran, where anti-Semitism is rampant, makes the Ayatollahs' regime look legitimate while it endangers the entire world,” the Foreign Minister said.

He added that the Iranian regime is not made up of crazy people but rather is composed of “fanatics” who are anti-Semites and “openly display their plan, which includes destroying the State of Israel.”

“Hitler said the same crazy things, and he succeeded in carrying out his program,” Lieberman added, charging that the international community does not understand that the Iranian regime is a “recipe for danger.”
