We are well aware that racism is not confined to israel.Ahmadinejad made a point and singled out Israel as a racist,elitist warmongering nation.Im pretty sure the conference would have had many other views and shown other atrocities.The fact is,these members walked out when Israel was singled out,i can bet my right arm and left leg that if a speaker was talking about any other country there would have been no such walkout.Either these *representatives* of our nations are stupid or they are in the back pocket of israel via lobbies,it doesn't get much simpler than that.
Relations between Iran and Israel have alternated from close political alliances between the two states during the era of the Pahlavi dynasty to hostility following the rise to power of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini. Currently, the countries do not have diplomatic relations with each other. Iran does not formally recognize Israel as a country, and official government texts often simply refer to it as the "Zionist entity " or the "Zionist regime."
