News the HP Doesn't Cover: Iranian Presidential Statement (UPDATED)

Meet the new president, same as the old president:
"Iran's new president has called Israel an "old wound" that should be removed in comments published just two days ahead of his inauguration and as millions of Iranians took to the streets to mark al-Quds Day.
Hassan Rohani's remarks about Israel - his country's archenemy - echo those of other Iranian leaders.
Iran's semi-official ISNA news agency says Rohani spoke after taking part in an annual pro-Palestine rally in Tehran on Friday.
The report quoted Rohani as saying: "The Zionist regime has been a wound on the body of the Islamic world for years and the wound should be removed.""

UPDATE: The HP did cover this news. Stand by for hundreds of "he was mistranslated!"
