Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad strongly criticized the US and the Zionist regime of Israel for their expansionist policies, and blamed Washington and Tel Aviv for the existing problems of human community. "The most problems humanity suffers from are the result of the expansionist and non-divine rule of the United States and its evil hanger-on, the Zionist regime [of Israel]," Ahmadinejad said, addressing the inauguration ceremony of the 28th International Holy Quran Competition here in Tehran on Wednesday.
"The uncivilized Zionists, for the sake of their own passions, have crushed and are crushing all humans under their heavy wheels of their egotism, materialism and capitalism," the Iranian president noted. The Iranian president referred to the occupation of Palestinian territories by the Israeli army and the deaths of over one million people in the US-led wars in Afghanistan and Iraq as further proof that Washington and its Middle East ally have sacrificed all human virtues to reach their colonial goals.
"Today, when there is a crime, corruption or dictator, wherever there is humiliation of humans -- when we pursue we come across the Zionist regime or the US or their allies," Ahmadinejad pointed out. "They know no boundary for stuffing their bottomless pockets," he added.
