Hitler and the Nazis said the same thing about America in their day: that it was secretly controlled by Jews. Antisemitic paranoia tends to be repetitive, as do the antisemitic paranoiacs' final solutions. But the Iranian Thug-In-Chief's analysis here will certainly come as a surprise to Barack Hussein Obama, America's most anti-Israel president ever. "President Ahmadinejad: Zionist Capitalists Oppressing U.S.," from Kayhan International, July 11 (thanks to Lachlan):
TEHRAN (Dispatches) – President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad here on Tuesday rejected U.S. claims about freedom, democracy and human rights, saying American leaders are exercising the worst form of suppression against their people in a country ruled by Zionist capitalists.
"Today the ugliest form of suppression is ruling the U.S. where you see that a group of Zionist capitalists are ruling over 300 million Americans from behind the scenes," Ahmadinejad said, addressing an international conference on Islamic awakening.
The president said freedom has no meaning in the U.S. since the Zionist lobby brings its favorite candidates to power in order to protect its interests.
Ahmadinejad described the occupying regime of Israel as the base of the global hegemony, emphasizing that all revolutionary movements must be geared against the Zionist regime.
“This regime is the base of domineering powers and as long as the hegemonic system and the Zionist regime are in existence, nations would not see a peaceful day,” President Ahmadinejad told the opening of the 1st International Conference on Women and Islamic Awakening.
Insisting that Islamic awakening is the key condition for a fundamental development in the global situation, he said, “Nothing new will happen in the world unless people are awakened.”
On the effective role of women in social developments across the globe, the president said, “If women are determined (to make a change in any community), it is impossible that nothing would transpire and we have witnessed this in Iran and we can see it today in the world.”
Noting that today Europe and the U.S. “have demolished” the existence of women, he added, “So long as women do not play their respective role, plundering, colonialism and crime will ensue and today the biggest abuse and repression has been carried out against women.”
The Iranian president addressed the female participants of the conference, saying “your mission is quite burdensome”. He also urged them not to confine such a “divine mission” based on race, geographical location, ethnicity or language.
He further described that all the freedom-loving and justice-seeking human beings are brothers, vowing that “the global domination by the U.S. and the Zionist regime is unsettled and will be replaced by justice”.
President Ahmadinejad reiterated that at the time of slavery the repression of human being was overtly carried out; however, today the hegemonic powers resort to pro-human rights and freedom slogans to deceive the world.
He also rejected free elections in the U.S., insisting that “a group of corrupt Zionist capitalists are acting behind the scenes in the U.S. and rule over 300 million Americans and other nations”.
“American people lack freedom of choice; it is the Zionists that decide who will become the (U.S.) president according to their needs,” the president added.
More than 1500 female researchers and scholars as well as political and social activists from more than 80 countries are taking part in the two-day conference.
Senior Iranian and foreign officials including Ali Akbar Velayati, the secretary-general of the World Assembly of Islamic Awakening and an advisor to Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, commander of Iran's Basij force Brigadier General Muhammad-Reza Naqdi and chairman of the Islamic Supreme Council of Iraq Seyyed Ammar al-Hakim are also attending the conference.
Earlier in January, Tehran hosted the 2nd International Youth and Islamic Awakening, attracting some 1500 scholars and experts from 73 countries.
Some 700 Muslim figures from 80 countries also attended the 1st International Conference on Islamic Awakening held in Tehran back in September 2011.
