The holiest day of the Jewish calendar could see one of the Jewish state’s most vocal opponents thrust into international spotlight.
On the fast day of Yom Kippur Sept. 26, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is likely to address the United Nations General Assembly in New York, Israel National News reported.
Last month, Ahmadinejad continued his pattern of anti-Israel rants by telling ambassadors from Muslim countries in advance of Quds Day—an Iranian display of solidarity for Palestinians—that “those who love freedom and justice must strive for the annihilation of the Zionist regime to make the world more just and free.”
“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, according to the IRNA news agency.
