Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman blasted the Iranian regime, saying it is composed of "anti-Semitic fanatics", following the hateful remarks of Vice President Mohammad Reza, who claimed that the teachings of the Talmud incite global drug trade.

Addressing a ceremony for the International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking held in Tehran on Tuesday, Rahimi alleged that the “spread of narcotics in the world emanates from the teachings of the Talmud... whose objective is the destruction of the world.”   

"The Talmud teaches that it is lawful to acquire wealth through legal and illegal means... which gives (the Jews) the right to destroy humanity," he said.

"If one seeks what lies behind all forms of corruption, there is the repugnant face of Zionists. This is the same case for the narcotics trade ... whose primary operator is the Zionist regime," he said

"The Zionists spread destruction not only by drugs, but also by (attacking) cultures."  

Lieberman asserted that, “the international community has not yet internalized the great danger that this regime represents for world peace.”

The Minister warned that the presence of international representatives at the conference "gives legitimacy to the regime of the ayatollahs, which poses a real threat to world peace."   

"Hitler said foolish things and succeeded in executing his plans. Today, the situation is different and the sovereign state of Israel will not allow a single Jew to be harmed," he said.
