Iranian speakers at a New Zealand event for Palestinians called Israel a “cancerous tumor” that has to be “surgically removed.”

“Quds Day” is an annual event held on the last Friday of Ramadan that was started by the Islamic Republic of Iran in 1979 to express hatred for Israel and opposition to Zionism.

To that end, Iran funds, trains, and arms terror groups that share the regime’s goal of destroying Israel and the West.These groups include Al Qaeda, Hezbollah, Palestinian Islamic Jihad, and Hamas.

Watch these Iranian speakers spew anti-Semitism and call for more terror attacks as well as the destruction of Israel at a New Zealand “Quds Day” event in June 2017.

Iranian Speakers at New Zealand Quds Day Event: The Holocaust Was Fake; Israel a "Cancerous Tumor" to Be Annihilated within 25 Years At a Quds Day event in Auckland, New Zealand, held on June 23, Iranian cleric Hojatoleslam Shafie said that Israel and the Zionist regime "hide behind a fake phenomenon" of the Holocaust and that it was a conspiracy to infiltrate the Islamic countries. He said that Quds Day was established "to deal a powerful punch to the mouth of the cancerous tumor known as evil Israel," and cited Imam Khomeini as saying that "if every Muslim were to spit in the face of Israel, Israel would drown." Iranian diplomat Hormoz Ghahremani, presented at the event as the first secretary of the Iranian embassy in New Zealand, said that the "sinister phenomena of terrorism and extremism in the region" were "fueled and fanned by the enemies of Islam and the Zionist circles." Community elder Sayed Taghi Derhami said that Israel was a "cancerous tumor" that had to be "surgically removed." The event was organized by the Islamic Ahlulbayt Foundation of New Zealand, in Auckland, and was posted on its YouTube channel.
