Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad met with participants of the Global March to Jerusalem which is scheduled to take place at the end of March in time for Land Day. A statement on behalf of Ahmadinejad said that it was illegitimate for Israel to occupy any part of Palestine.
He said that the Palestinians must rule the land. "No matter how strong the enemies are, they will be destroyed and we must prepare for the great day in which arrogance will be wiped from the face of the earth," he said. (Dudi Cohen)
