Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says the U.S.-sponsored Mideast peace conference was a failure and that Israel is doomed to collapse.

Ahmadinejad was quoted by Iran's state-run news agency.

The comments highlight Tehran's bitterness toward yesterday's conference in Annapolis, which is widely seen as isolating Iran.

Iran has repeatedly condemned the conference, saying it would fail to bring any peace for Palestinians. Tehran has also warned that it would discredit Arab countries that participated.

Ahmadinejad also says that Palestinian "resistance," such as Hamas, must have a say in any settlement.
