Israel a ‘cancerous tumour’ Iran

Iran's President Hassan Rouhani on Saturday called Israel a "cancerous tumour" established by Western countries to advance their interests in the Middle East.

The U.S. has been a frequent target for fiery rhetoric from Iranian leaders since the 1979 revolution that deposed the U.S. -backed shah.

Earlier this month, Trump reimposed sanctions on Iran that cover the country's shipping, financial and energy sectors months after pulling the USA out of the 2015 Iran nuclear deal negotiated by the Obama administration.

Speaking at the annual Islamic Unity Conference in Tehran, Rouhani said the US wants to enslave the Middle East. Israel views Iran as an existential threat.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, a staunch Trump ally and a bitter critic of the 2015 deal, lashed out in a statement at "the murderous Iranian regime".

Iran supports terror groups like Lebanese Hezbollah and Palestinian Hamas that are pledged to Israel's destruction.

"We have a choice to either roll out red carpets for criminals or to forcefully stand against injustice and remain faithful to our Prophet, our Quran and our Islam", he said.

Bowing to American pressure equals "treason", he said.

"We do no ask $450 billion for it and will not insult you".

Saudi Arabia cut diplomatic ties with Iran almost three years ago after Iranian protesters stormed its diplomatic posts in Iran in response to the kingdom's execution of a prominent Shiite cleric.

"We do consider the people of Mecca and Medina our brothers", he added, referring to Islamic cities in Saudi Arabia. Most notably, Iran backs the Houthi rebels in the ongoing civil war in Yemen, while Saudi Arabia leads a coalition of Sunni nations supporting the Yemeni government.

Almost three years ago, Saudi Arabia cut diplomatic ties with Iran, after Iranian protesters "stormed its diplomatic posts in Iran in response to the kingdom's execution of a prominent Shiite cleric", according to the report.
