Former Iran president Mohammed Khatami criticized the Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's statements calling for the annihilation of Israel. In a speech delivered at the Koran Museum in Teheran on Sunday, Khatami said that the leaders of the state should avoid statements that caused Iran political and economic damage throughout the world. Egypt also criticized Ahmadinejad's speech on Sunday, Israel Radio reported. Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Ali Ahmed Aboul Gheit told reporters in Cairo that Israel and Iran were both members of the United Nations, and that no member of the organization ever destroyed another member. Even so, he didn't specifically condemn the statements made by Ahmadinejad calling on the Muslim world to "wipe Israel off the map."
