“For 400 years the revolting Zionist tribe has been controlling the world’s affairs and pulling strings behind the scenes in politics, the media, and the financial sphere,” Ahmadinejad said, the IRNA news agency reported.

Ahmadinejad made his speech in advance of Quds Day (Jerusalem Day), an annual anti-Zionist event in Iran. He said Israel’s “plots” in the Middle East have impacted countries including Bahrain, Yemen, Libya, Syria and Turkey.

“Quds Day is not just a strategic solution to the Palestinian problem—it is to be viewed as a way for solving the world’s problems,” Ahmadinejad said.
