Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says after the formation of a Palestinian state there will be no room for Israel in region, ASSIST News Service reports. According to www.Mohabatnews.com, Ahmadinejad's comments came after a day of pro-Palestine rallies on Friday. The rallies were part of an annual demonstration called Quds Day, an occasion where Iranian officials show their support for Palestine and condemn Israel. Quds is the Arabic word for Jerusalem. Tens of thousands attended the Quds Day rally in Tehran. The regime's state TV reported millions of Iranians participated in the rallies in cities and towns across Iran, the news agency said. Ahmadinejad also urged the West to stop supporting Israel. "You and the Zionist regime will have no base in the Middle East," he warned, and dismissed the West's support for a two-state solution as a tactic meant "to save" Israel.
