Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Wednesday accused European diplomats and protesters who disrupted his recent attack on Israel at the UN anti-racism conference of trying to muzzle anyone who says "a word against the racism of the Zionist regime." Speaking on Iranian state television, Ahmadinejad reiterated the criticism of Israel in his first comments following the incident in Geneva on Monday when protesters in rainbow-colored wigs lobbed red clown noses at him and EU representatives walked out after he called Israel the "most cruel and repressive racist regime." Ahmadinejad said that Western countries had been ignoring criticism of Israel for 50 years, but "now the time has come for you to open your ears and close your mouths."
