Iran's new president says 'Zionist regime' is a 'wound that should be removed' as millions mark al-Quds Day.
Netanyahu: Rohani's true face exposed sooner than expected
Ahmadinajed: A devastating storm will uproot basis of Zionism
Iran's new president has called Israel an "old wound" that should be removed in comments published just two days ahead of his inauguration and as millions of Iranians took to the streets to mark al-Quds Day.
Hassan Rohani's remarks about Israel - his country's archenemy - echo those of other Iranian leaders.
Iran's semi-official ISNA news agency says Rohani spoke after taking part in an annual pro-Palestine rally in Tehran on Friday.
The report quoted Rohani as saying: "The Zionist regime has been a wound on the body of the Islamic world for years and the wound should be removed."
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in response, "Rohani's true face has been exposed sooner than expected. Even if his comments will quickly be denied that's what the man thinks and that's the Iranian regime's game plan."
"These remarks should awaken the world from the illusion that has taken hold on some since the elections in Iran," he added.
Outgoing President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad also addressed the Iranian people offering remarks that were equally as scathing.
"I will inform you with God as my witness, a devastating storm is on the way that will uproot the basis of Zionism," Ahmadinejad told crowds at annual al-Quds Day rallies.

“Removing” a wound only makes a BIGGER wound.
Actually, Iran as it is currently being led is the big, dangerous wound in that part of the world...
muslims are a cancer and should be removed
Sounds like he’s drifting moderate to me——or did he just forget to call the US the Great Satan? Maybe it’s a ramadan thing?
Amos 9:14 And I will bring again the captivity of my people of Israel, and they shall build the waste cities, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and drink the wine thereof; they shall also make gardens, and eat the fruit of them. 15 And I will plant them upon their land, and they shall no more be pulled up out of their land which I have given them, saith the Lord thy God.
First, remove GOD (the REAL One). If you survive that, then remove Israel next. Good luck (no, actually, I hope Iran and all their 3rd-world followers of their little goddie, skip the handwriting on the wall and go square to hell).
We have several thousand nukes, manufactured more than 50 years ago and in storage since. Who knows how many would even work after all this time?
Seems to me we should do some testing - perhaps one or two of each model warhead - to verify what we have remains viable.
I have some thoughts about where such tests should best be accomplished. Would lower the price of glass to boot!

Iranian state television said later that accounts of Mr. Rouhani’s comments were distorted. It aired video of reporters interviewing Mr. Rouhani in which he said “occupying Palestinian territories is like an old wound in the body of Islamic society.”
