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

Speaking to the Washington Post, Ahmadinejad said Iran could never support 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."

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

"I think you should have a referendum in the United States to see if the people want to use their resources and taxes for a number of killers," he said, adding "We are against killing and massacres."

The Iranian president expressed hope that the Palestinian petition for state recognition at the UN next week will be met with success, and said that it would be the "beginning of the liberation of the entire Palestinian land," which had "existed before the Palestinians had unwanted guests pour into Palestine with guns."
