The headline of an article on the Iranian propaganda website IRNA states, "Ahmadinejad: Muslims should mobilize resources to uproot Zionism."

"President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Sunday that all Muslims should mobilize their resources to uproot Zionism," the article reads.

"He made the remarks in his speech to the 26th international conference on Islamic Unity. He said that the prime goal of the Muslims should be terminating the issue of Zionism.

The Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad reportedly said, ''World Muslims should forge unity in their struggle with bullying powers and by the time that the Zionist usurpers commit crimes through occupation and vandalism. It is not advisable to sit idle and take no action.''

The article continues: "Elsewhere in his speech, he said that it is not possible to attain unity without having a unique leadership. The only leader who can guide Muslim World is the guidelines of Prophet Mohammad (PBUH), he underlined."

"All differences and discords among Muslims have roots in our misunderstanding of Holy Quran and guidelines of Prophet Mohammad (PBUH). Today we need leadership similar to the Prophet to get the Muslim World united. ... Enemies of humanity claim they are administering the world. They claim to be advocates of freedom and democracy around the world but under such circumstances, they should not say that they advocate freedom of Muslims. They must call for liberation of all world nations as well as the US people from rein of Zionists." Ahmadinejad reportedly said.
