Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad insisted that "Zionists" were behind the First and Second World Wars and that Israel is responsible for the "grim picture" of the US in the world.

Speaking with the Washington Post, Ahmidenjad said Iran was compelled to denounce Israel because "They destroy people’s homes and raze them to the ground. They have created a few major wars. They continue to assassinate and terrorize people," and said that "wherever there is a conflict, [the Zionists] are behind it."

Ahmadinjad criticized Western support for Israel, and said that "the whole population is going to be sacrificed for the interests of a few hundred Zionists."
