Israel and America are on the ‘verge of death’ and as a result, Iran will never give up its nuclear research facilities, according to Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who recently offered this insight in a rambling television interview.
In the interview, broadcast on IRINN –TV on April 22, Ahmadinejad told the story of a prime minister from an “industrialized country” who was seeking to do business in Iran. But that was only possible, the minister told Ahmadinejad, if Iran gave up the “nuclear issue.”
“I felt very sorry for him, so I put my hand on his shoulder, and said: ‘Dear sir, don't be so afraid of America. Don't be afraid of those Zionists. They are on the verge of death. Their time has past. Do not surrender your people to them,’" Ahmadinejad told the interviewer.
The Iranian president then described a similar encounter at the recent Durban Review Conference on racism in Geneva, where Ahmadinejad prompted a walkout by nearly two dozen countries after he called Israel a racist state.
“Somebody, somewhere, when we went to that conference [Durban II] a few days ago, said to me: ‘Sir, you are in Iran, not in Palestine. Do not deal with this issue. Let the 'front of arrogance' (an Iranian term for the West) implement their plans over there,’” Ahmadinejad said. “’Don't get so involved.’
“Let me tell you the answer I gave him. I said to him: ‘Don't you know the nature of the Zionists? Don't you know who the Zionists are?’” the Iranian president said. “’They came in order to take over our region in its entirety. At first, they said that they wanted [a country] from the Nile to the Euphrates. Once the got settled, they said that there had been a mistake, and that they wanted all the Islamic lands.’”
Ahmadinejad then suggested that the debacle at Durban was a Zionist-inspired conspiracy.
