Ahmadinejad: Israel Is a ‘Tumor’

Not one to mince words, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad upped the ante early Friday, telling anti-Israel protestors that the Jewish state is a "cancerous tumor" that will soon be destroyed. "The nations of the region will soon finish off the usurper Zionists in the Palestinian land ... In the new Middle East there will be no trace of the Americans and Zionists," Ahmadinejad said during a broadcast on state television. In recent weeks, rhetoric between the two countries has grown particularly sour, as Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu doubled down on the possibility of bombing Iran to stop its nuke research.
