Peres: Ahmadinejad and Nasrallah Will be Toppled by Own People

Israeli President Shimon Peres has said Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Hizbullah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah would be overthrown by their own people.

Peres made the remark on Monday at the headquarters of the Jewish community in Spain.

He said he believed Libyan leader Moammer Gadhafi's reign was nearing an end.

The current events in the Middle East were "full of hope," Peres said, that "the moderate, the young, those who want democracy will win, and not the tyrants, the dictators, nor the corrupt."

The official part of Peres' visit, which will mark the 25th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Spain and Israel, will begin on Tuesday.

During the trip, Peres was to hold talks with King Juan Carlos, Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero and Foreign Minister Trinidad Jimenez on a visit aimed at strengthening and expanding strategic, diplomatic, and economic ties between the two countries.

"The president is expected to discuss with his hosts the dramatic events that have taken place recently in the Middle East, the Iranian nuclear threat, their attempts to strengthen terror organizations like Hizbullah and Hamas, and to dominate the Middle East," a statement from his office said.
