Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Friday that Israel no longer had any reason to exist and would soon disappear.

"This regime, thanks to God, has lost the reason for its existence," Ahmadinejad told a crowd of thousands gathered at a rally in support of the Palestinians in the capital Tehran.

"Efforts to stabilise this fake (Israeli) regime, by the grace of God, have completely failed... You should believe that this regime is disappearing," he said.
