Iran aims to control the Middle East, thereby controlling a major part of the World's economy, President Shimon Peres told the AIPAC Conference in Washington Sunday, asserting that "it must be stopped, and it will be stopped."

Using especially harsh rhetoric against Iran's rulers, the president called the Iranian government an "evil, cruel, morally corrupt regime" based on destruction, adding that it is "an affront to human dignity." Tehran is the central sponsor and financier of world terrorism, he added, saying it threatens Berlin, Madrid, Delhi and Bangkok, referring to recent attacks against Israel diplomats in India and Thailand.
