From Iran Focus:
An ultra-Islamist ally of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in Iran’s parliament told a conference of the radical Ansar-e Hezbollah group on Saturday that the issue of Iran’s nuclear program “has become the frontline between Islam and the Heathens“, referring to non-Muslims.
Haven’t Iranian Islamists learned the politically correct term for infidel or heathen yet? The Saudis have suggested the word “other” to be a more tactful label when referring to non-Muslims.
“Nuclear capability is our religious right. We must stand up and fight for it”, the Majlis deputy, Rashid Jalali, said.
“Even if our [nuclear] file is taken to the [United Nations] Security Council we will come through it. We want nuclear energy and we must pay the price”, Jalali said.
Defending the recent threatening remarks against Israel and Arab leaders by President Ahmadinejad, the Majlis deputy from Karaj said, “These comments show our unambiguous position against the occupying regime in Qods (Jerusalem). We had to announce this position“.
That’s about as crystal clear as one can get.
