Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad downplayed the Zionist regime’s warmongering rhetoric against Iran, and said Israel is nothing more than a mosquito trying to challenge the Iranian nation.
“Israel is nothing more than a mosquito which cannot see the broad horizon of the Iranian nation,” Ahmadinejad said, addressing a large gathering of the Iranian people in Khorassan Razavi province, Northeastern Iran, on Saturday.
He reiterated that the Zionists accompanied by their western masters have long attempted to impede Iran’s progress through ballyhoo and by leveling different accusations against the Iranian nation, but to no avail.
“Our enemies know that if Iran can maintain the same speed in development of the country, it will become a developed country and they will no more be able to challenge us,” Ahmadinejad said.
Israel and its close ally the United States have recently intensified their war rhetoric against Iran. The two arch foes of the Islamic Republic accuse Iran of seeking a nuclear weapon, while they have never presented any corroborative document to substantiate their allegations. Both Washington and Tel Aviv possess advanced weapons of mass destruction, including nuclear warheads.
Iran vehemently denies the charges, insisting that its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes only. Tehran stresses that the country has always pursued a civilian path to provide power to the growing number of Iranian population, whose fossil fuel would eventually run dry.
