Iran: We'll Have Relations with Israel After Zionism

If the Iranians and other Muslim anti-Zionists understood how effective it is rhetorically in the West to associate Zionism with Apartheid, they'd explicitly draw the comparison every single time their position on Israel comes into discussion.

Unfortunately, Zionism is aided, somewhat, in its efforts to keep Western support by Zionism's supporters having a better understanding of which terms carry which emotional leverage in the West than many of Zionism's opponents.

May steps toward closing this gap become a trend:

"Iran is not threatening Israel and does not want nuclear weapons, Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki said Saturday.

... ... ...

The Iranian foreign minister went on to say that Iran did not recognize two countries, South Africa and Israel. "With South Africa, the problem was solved with the end of apartheid and if the situation also changes in the other case [Israel], there is no reason why relations with that country cannot change too," he added.
