Jerusalem, 5 Jan. (AKI) – The Israeli foreign ministry is planing to launch a new website in Farsi to counter the anti-Israel campaign of the Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Anti-Zionist propaganda, which calls for the Jewish state to be wiped off the map and defines the Holocaust as a myth than needs reviewing, is part of the rhetorical and political baggage used by the new Iranian president and representatives of his administration.

According to Israeli sources, the site will be managed by Menashe Amir, a well-known journalist of Iranian origin who a few weeks ago became the director of programmes in Farsi in Kol Israel, a public radio station in Tel Aviv.
