TEL-AVIV, August 2 (Itar-Tass) - The president-elect of Iran, Hassan Rouhani, has shown “his true face earlier than expected.” Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu thus commented on Rouhani’s speech in which he called the Jewish State “a wound that has been on the body of the Islamic world for years and the wound should be removed.”
“The true face of Rouhani has been revealed earlier than expected,” Netanyahu said in a statement. “Even if the Iranians work to deny these comments, this is what the man thinks and reflects the regime’s plans,” he said. “These statements should awaken the world from illusions that have been cherished by some after the election in Iran,” the prime minister said.
Speaking at a rally in Tehran, dedicated to Palestine Day, observed in a number of Muslim countries, he factually called for destroying the Jewish State.
Rouhani will assume office as Iran’s president on August 3, after the spiritual leader of Iran, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, endorses the election results. The next day, the inauguration ceremony of the new executive power head will be held in the Iranian capital. For the first time since the Islamic revolution of 1979, foreign guests have been invited to attend the ceremony.
