Ahmadinejad slams Israel and ”bullying powers”
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Wednesday that the Iranians would continue resistance against "bullying powers" if they embark on a "new game." Addressing a large group of local residents gathered at the city's main stadium, he reiterated that the Iranian nation considers producing nuclear energy as its legitimate and inalienable right.
Elsewhere in his speech, he said, today's mission of the Iranian nation is to resist to the bullying powers and to restore identity of people. Today, the enemies are angry with the unity and solidarity of the Iranian people in their campaign to build their country, the Iranian leader added.
Elsewhere in his speech, Ahmadinejad launched a new attack against Israel, describing it as a "dirty microbe" and a "savage animal". "World powers have created a black and dirty microbe named the Zionist regime and have unleashed it like a savage animal on the nations of the region," he said, according to AFP.
Ahmadinejad also accused world powers of arming Israel with billions of dollars of weapons to create a "scarecrow" to frighten and dominate other nations in the region.
"They assassinate pure and pious people and then they celebrate it, like what happened to the son of Lebanon who had stood against the savage onslaught of the Zionists and broke the Zionists' horns," said Ahmadinejad.
