Tomas Erdbrink rapporterade i New York Times om talet som innehöll så grova antisemitiska uttalanden att åhörarna blev mer eller mindre chockade.
Enligt Rahimi är det judarna som kontrollerar droghandeln och det finns inga judar som är missbrukare. Judarna startade ryska revolutionen och inga judar dödades i revolutionen och på judarnas order dödar gynekologer svarta barn.
Rahimi påstod också att Talmud uppmanar judarna att förinta alla som motarbetar judarna.
Talet hölls alltså av Irans vicepresident.
"The “Zionists” are in firm control of the illegal drug trade, Mr. Rahimi said, asking foreign dignitaries to research his claims. “Zionists” is Iran’s ideological term for Jews who support the state of Israel.
“The Islamic Republic of Iran will pay for anybody who can research and find one single Zionist who is an addict,” Mr. Rahmini said. “They do not exist. This is the proof of their involvement in drugs trade.”
Mr. Rahimi, who spoke after Mr. De Leo, told stories of gynecologists’ killing black babies on the orders of the Zionists and claimed that the Bolshevik Revolution in 1917 was started by Jews, adding that mysteriously no Jews died in that uprising.
He also said the Talmud teaches Jews to think they are a superior race. “They think God has created the world so that all other nations can serve them,” he said. Halfway through his speech, Mr. Rahimi said there was a difference between Jews who “honestly follow the prophet Moses” and the Zionists who are “the main elements of the international drugs trade.”
A European diplomat said afterward: “This was definitely one of the worst speeches I have heard in my life. My gut reaction was: why are we supporting any cooperation with these people?”
