President refuses to be cowed by Israel speech backlash

President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad of Iran continued his inflammatory rhetoric against Israel today, in spite of the diplomatic storm over a speech that called for the destruction of the Jewish state.

Across Iran, tens of thousands of men and women loyal to the regime paraded through the streets of towns and cities - their banners bearing slogans demanding the abolition of Israel.

"Death to Israel, death to America," was a popular motif, in what one correspondent described as a 'carnival of bloodthirsty rhetoric'. Israeli and American flags were burnt; militants were openly recruiting for suicide missions.

Young girls wearing head-to-toe black chadors with green headbands daubed in Islamic verse chanted anti-Israeli slogans.
