Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's most recent anti-Semitic tirade should serve the world as a "wake up call" and erode any doubts in the world as to the "true character of the Iranian government," Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's spokesman Mark Regev said Thursday.

Regev was responding to a speech published on Ahmadinejad's website Thursday in which the Iranian president said the ultimate goal of world forces must be the annihilation of Israel.

"Unfortunately these comments do not come as a surprise," Regev said. "This sort of extreme, poisonous language is unfortunately par for the course for the Iranian leadership."
