Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is at it again: Speaking in the southern Iranian city of Bandar Abbas, Ahmadinejad launched yet another verbal attack on Israel, calling it "a dirty microbe," "a wild animal" and "the West's scarecrow".
"World powers have created a dirty microbe, called the Zionist regime, which they have unleashed on the region's nations," said Ahmadinejad in his speech, which was broadcast on Iranian National Television.
"This (regime) is supported by those who created it as their scarecrow, to keep the region's nations under control."
Commenting on the assassination of Hizbullah commander Imad Mugniyah, the Iranian president said that "(Israel) murders pure and pious men and then celebrates its efforts."
Earlier this week, General Mohammad Ali Jaafari, commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards, sent a letter of condolence to Hizbullah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah, saying he believed "the cancerous bacterium called Israel" would vanish soon.
"There is no doubt that the death of this loyal fighter will strengthen the determination of all the revolutionary and warrior Muslims in their battle against the Zionist regime, and particularly the determination of those fighting alongside this shahids," added Jaafari.
Mugniyah had a known affiliation with the Iranian Revolutionary Guards and especially with their al-Quds force, which has been blacklisted by the US as a terror organization.
In the past, Mugniyah joined forces with Revolutionary Guards' commanders to train Hizbullah guerillas in Lebanon and Iran, devising various terror attacks around the world.
