Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Thursday that the "idol of Zionism" should be broken in order to "save humanity." "Free nations will not bow to the idol of Zionism and would break it, although it has already been broken," Ahmadinejad told a crowd in the city of Eslamshahr, not far from Teheran. The Iranian president claimed there was growing positive sentiment towards Iran worldwide, saying, "The Islamic Revolution is being exported to the world now. People in different parts of the world, even in the US and Europe, are currently talking about fighting against Zionism," he claimed. He said that "even in Switzerland and the US people say what the president of Iran is saying. They say they favor peace and justice." Ahmadinejad and several of his ministers arrived in Eslamshahr on Wednesday as part of a provincial tour in the Teheran province.
