Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has called Israel's existence an "insult to all humanity", in one of his sharpest attacks yet on the Jewish state.
As Israel openly debates whether to attack Iran over its nuclear programme, Mr Ahmadinejad launched the stinging rebuke, saying confronting Israel is an effort to "protect the dignity of all human beings".
"The existence of the Zionist regime is an insult to all humanity," Mr Ahmadinejad said, in a speech to mark Quds (Jerusalem) Day, an anti-Israeli demonstration in solidarity with Palestinians.
