Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad resumed his vehement anti-Israel rhetoric Monday at a press conference in Iran, telling reporters that Israel was an artificial state that could not continue to exist. Ahmadinejad went on to say that "Some 60 years has passed since the end of World War II, why should the people of Germany and Palestine pay now for a war in which the current generation was not involved? "We say that this fake regime (Israel) cannot not logically continue to live," he said. Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz revealed Monday that Iran had transferred 10 million dollars to Palestinian terror groups. Speaking at the inauguration of the Center For Iranian Studies at Tel Aviv University Mofaz said that Israel would not allow Iran to obtain nuclear power. "We cannot let this happen," Mofaz said. "We also need to work on raising awareness that the threat is against the whole free world." With nuclear power, Mofaz warned, Iran would have an easier time supporting terror groups, and continuing the funding of Palestinian terror groups. Israel, Mofaz said, needed to take Ahmadinejad's threats to wipe Israel off the map seriously. "We can't be indifferent, especially on the eve of Yom Hashoah," he said. Iran, he said, has two nuke programs - one civilian, and one military and covert. Mofaz said he was not sure that the Western world had all the needed information regarding the covert program.
