In my opinion, all Muslim nations should recognize Israel within the 1967 borders, and should apply moderate but significant pressure (through import and export taxes for example) to convince Israel to go back to its legal borders.
What appears to have been actually said;
Iranian Parliament Speaker Mohammad Baqer Qalibaf called on the Muslim states to increase efforts and unity to uproot the Zionist regime which is like a "cancerous tumor" in the region.
This says nothing about destroying Israel. This is a bit like the US attitude towards e.g. Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Syria, etc. In fact probably a little more polite than many US politicians rhetoric about the regimes in control of these countries. One could argue whether the current Israeli government is a 'Zionist regime', but it does not seem an extreme description, Likud would be regarded as a zionist party and is the dominant party in the current Israeli government. A change from the current zionist regime is probably necessary for a successful peace process.
