PressTV (Iran): "Zion elders wanted Muslims 'under thumb'"---that's a real headline

Iran is having a conference on Palestine at the moment. Almost every headline at Fars News is about it, including the obligatory story about a "Jewish Rabbi," i.e. a Neturei Karta type, who agrees 100% with the Khomeinists. Ahmadinejad explains:
The Islamic republic news agency quoted him as saying the world looked at Zionism not as a religion but as a "manner" full of evil and satanic objectives and means and said the basic philosophy of the Zionist regime's existence was to scatter corruption, aggression and expansionism throughout the world.
The Supreme Leader weighs in:
Now 60 years have passed since the occupation of Palestine. During this period all material means of power have been in the service of the usurpers, including money, weapons and technology, as well as political and diplomatic initiatives and the giant empire of news media and networks. Yet despite these staggering and far-reaching satanic efforts, the usurpers and their supporters have not only failed to solve the problem of the Zionist regime's illegitimacy, but it has grown more complicated with time.

The intolerance shown by the Western and Zionist media and pro-Zionist governments toward even the mere posing of any question concerning the Holocaust-which served as an excuse for the usurpation of Palestine-and research on the topic, is one of the signs of this nervousness and uncertainty.
Besides all the usual swill, lo and behold, here is something I don't remember seeing before: an Iranian news article that actually refers to "Elders of Zion":
Iran's Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani says that the creation of Israel was aimed at placing Islamic states under Zionist influence.

In a speech delivered at the international conference in support of Palestinians in Tehran on Wednesday, Larijani said frequent tensions in the Middle East clearly show that the elders of Zion planned to preoccupy Islamic countries with daily struggles.

The Majlis speaker criticized the US for its support of Israel and said making repeated visits to the region and holding conferences in support of Israel will not shake the will of the Palestinian resistance.

"Today the world awaits a change in domineering policies and strategies," he added.

"One look at these past adventurisms [by Israel and the US] shows that the vigilance of Palestinians has thwarted Israeli-US plots and that the Palestinian resistance is on an evolutionary path," the Iranian official continued.

Larijani told the participants of the conference titled 'Palestine: Manifestation of Resistance, Gaza: Victim of Crimes' that he hoped the summit would help the people of Palestine.

"The Palestinian crisis is a serious one with almost no precedent. Imprisoning millions of people in Israeli jails and turning millions of others into refugees over the past 60 years is but a portion of Israel's atrocities in Palestine," Larijani added.

Legal experts, politicians and religious figures have come together for the conference to discuss ways to bring Israel's top political and military leaders to trial over the crimes they committed during the war on Gaza. [...]
There's blog fodder at that there conference . . .
