Israel's Haaretz news reports:
The deputy to Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Saturday thatI preserve this for posterity. Just, let it be known, everyone, that this was said.
Iran was a friend of Israel, Iranian news agencies reported.
"Iran wants no war with any country, and today Iran is friend of the United States and even Israel.... Our achievements belong to the whole world and should be used for expanding love and peace," said Iranian Vice President Esfandiar Rahim-Mashaei, who is also head of the Cultural Heritage Organization.
However, this was also said:
Ahmadinejad himself caused international uproar with his anti-Israel tirades, voicing hope for the eradication of Israel from the Middle East, demanding its relocation to Europe or Alaska and doubting the historic dimension of the Holocaust during World War II.So I'm just not sure what any of it means.
