TEHRAN, Iran (AP) -- Iran's hardline president says the fighting in Gaza between Hamas and Israel has shown that it is "not feasible" for what he calls Israel's "Zionist regime" to continue in the region.

President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says the fighting in Gaza has been "a great lesson for all," saying it shows "the absolute defeat and desperation of this (Israeli) regime."

He says that "even for the supporters of the occupying regime and its leaders, it has become clear that the continuation of the Zionist regime's life in the region is not feasible."

Ahmadinejad does not use the word Israel in his comments, made at a Thursday press conference. But opponents of Israel often use the term "Zionist regime" to refer to it.
