Israel Walks Out After Ahmadinejad Calls Them "Fake Regime"

Also says U.S. is misusing free speech because of "attacks" on his prophet.


The Iranian president also accused the US and others of misusing freedom of speech and failing to speak out against the defamation of people's beliefs and "divine prophets," an apparent reference to the recently circulated amateur video made in the US which attacks Islam and denigrates the Prophet Muhammad.

The Iranian leader, who has called for Israel's destruction, used his speech to denounce Israel's occupation of Palestinian territory and US vetoes in the UN Security Council to back its ally. He urged all nations to "hold occupiers accountable and make efforts to return the occupied territories to their rightful owners."

  1. Ahmadinejad – the modern Hitler?

    Seems to me that he uses scapegoats to avert people from noticing that his government subjugates its own citizens. Think about it – three years ago they protested thinking that government officials rigged the elections that made Ahmadinejad win by a landslide against Mousavi. The revolutionary guards have beaten many people, one woman shot and dead from throat wound and hemorrhage (which has been caught on video and posted on redtube). They couldn’t even let teens have a co-ed water balloon fight in the streets.

    You want to talk about ‘misusing freedom of speech’? Look into your threatening rhetoric, and your raw thirst for power over your own people.

    1. “Seems to me that he uses scapegoats to avert people from noticing that his government subjugates its own citizens. ”

  2. Ahmedinejad: Kindly fuck off and die in a fire. That is all.

  3. I’m sorry, but it is the 21st century. It is your right to continue to have this utterly insane belief system based on prophets and wizards and miracles that allegedly occured hundreds or thousands of years ago. But it is my right to point out how fucking stupid you are to actually be willing to kill people for not beliving in this patent nonsense. Get used to it.

  4. Did Omama apologize to him?

  5. He’s merely a mouthpiece for the real power in Iran, which is Ali Khamenei. Ahmadinejad will be gone as president soon, but that won’t really change things, unfortunately.

  6. I think Ahmadinejad is my favourite president of all time.
