Ahmadinejad: Time to Wrap Israel Up

Those who created Israel should “wrap it up and take it away,” Iran’s president said. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad launched his latest broadside against Israel on Friday, criticizing Israel’s strikes on the Gaza Strip.

Israel is a “fabricated regime” Ahmadinejad said, according to Reuters, and its strikes on Gaza “showed that it cannot last. I think the only solution would be for those who created it to wrap it up and take it away.” READ MORE

He warned Israel’s “creators” that the Gaza situation could “lead to an explosion in the Islamic world. If the explosion occurs, it will not remain restricted to the limits of the region and its flames will catch whoever created, supported and encouraged it in the past 60 years.”

Israel launched its strikes last Wednesday to bring about the release of a captured soldier and end a barrage of rocket attacks on southern Israel.
