Ahmadinejad blasts Israel as “the flag of Satan” today in a speech at the opening of an Islamic Conference in Tehran.
Iranian News reported:
“The international equations are rapidly changing in favor of justice and against falsehood,” stressed the president.
Referring to the position of arrogant powers, he added the Western arrogance started deploying its forces worldwide following the collapse of the former Soviet Union.
President Ahmadinejad said the US invasion of Iraq and its occupation as well as massacre of defenseless people of Palestine and Lebanon were clear examples of US and the Zionists crimes against humanity.
Noting that the enemies were trying to sow discord among Muslims, the president said: “Despite all these efforts they (enemies) are caught in a quagmire from which they would hardly find a way out.” Stressing that nobody believed in the US-style democracy worldwide, President Ahmadinejad said: “No one supports the world arrogance’s war-mongering policies.
“They (arrogant powers) have even failed to implement a true liberal-democratic system in their own countries,” criticized the president.
Noting that Zionism was the pioneer of Western-style
liberal democracy and the vanguard of occupation and aggression worldwide, he said, “The Zionist regime is the flag of Satan.” The Fourth Ahl-ul-Bait General Assembly started work here Saturday in the presence of President Ahmadinejad.
Religious and political figures from 110 countries are taking part in the two-day gathering.
The Ahl-ul-Bait World Assembly is a non-profit and non- governmental organization based in Tehran which was established in 1990 aimed at promoting Islamic teachings and culture.
Reuters adds that, “In June he said a “countdown” had begun that would end with Lebanese and Palestinian militants destroying Israel. His government last year hosted a conference on the Holocaust, questioning the German Nazi genocide of the Jews during World War II.”
