Tehran, Iran, Jan. 21 Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad told European nations on Friday to open their doors to the Jews of Israel, so that Israel could be removed from the map of the Middle East.
Speaking to Syrian political personalities in Damascus after a meeting with Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad, Ahmadinejad said that the Europeans should prove their sincerity in advocating freedom by allowing the Jews of Israel to resettle in Europe, Irans official news agency IRNA reported.
