President Obama hears “noise” when Netanyahu speaks but the rest of the world hears this – the words of Ahmadinejad:
“Iran has been around for the last seven, 10 thousand years. They (the Israelis) have been occupying those territories for the last 60 to 70 years, with the support and force of the Westerners. They have no roots there in history,” he said, referring to the founding of the modern state of Israel in 1948.
“We do believe that they have found themselves at a dead end and they are seeking new adventures in order to escape this dead end. Iran will not be damaged with foreign bombs,” Ahmadinejad said.
“We don’t even count them as any part of any equation for Iran. During a historical phase, they (the Israelis) represent minimal disturbances that come into the picture and are then eliminated,” Ahmadinejad added.
Ahmadinejad agrees with Obama that all parties should keep talking about the nuclear issue, talking is the only option, and nuclear weaponry is not a problem.
He also said the sanctions are not as bad as others depict and his economy is in much better shape than the EU. Read the story at Reuters
The U.S. delegation did NOT walk out on this horrendous speech and I find that horrendous. In the past our representatives would leave but this is the administration that believes in appeasement as a foreign policy.
Patriot update is reporting that Ahmadinejad will meet with the Occupy Wall Street protesters.
Iranian Fars News reports, “Ahmadinejad is also set to meet American university students, artists, intellectuals and elites, including Occupy Wall Street anti-capitalist protestors, despite the ongoing efforts made by the pro-Zionist lobbies to prevent direct link between American people and the Iranian president.”
I was at Occupy Wall Street as an observer and it is anti-semitic and pro-Palestinian. I did not see one person in support of Israel, not one.
