Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad told the Washington Post on Sunday that the Israeli-Arab conflict should be resolved by allowing the Palestinians to vote the "Zionist regime" out of existence.

Asked by interviewer David Ignatius to affirm Israel's right to exist, Ahmadinejad said "I think they should allow the people of Palestine in all the territories of Palestine to decide, and whatever they decide, that is what should be done." He added: "This doesn’t need nuclear weapons, missiles rockets or destroying people’s homes."
