The chairman of the Iranian parliament, Ali Larijani, has called for a new approach to putting a stop to the construction of Israeli settlements in the West Bank, saying Israel was a "malign tumor" [sic] the semi-official Iranian Mehr News Agency reported Friday.

We should think out new approaches so that we could stop construction of Jewish settlements in Palestinian territories, Larijani said at a meeting of Muslim parliamentary leaders in Iran, Mehr reported.

The report did not state if Larijani or anyone else suggested a new approach.

It did, on the other hand, quote him as saying that Israel was a "malign tumor" [sic.], warning that Israel benefits of silence by the Muslim countries and I warn on this [sic].

The Palestinian ambassador to Iran, who was present at the gathering discussing the Palestinian issue, commended Iran for its resistance to Israel, the report said.
