Note that Ahmadinejad also calls the West to “return to monotheism and worshipping god.” This is the call to accept Islam that precedes jihad, in accord with the Muslim Prophet Muhammad’s dictum to call the unbelievers first to accept Islam, and to fight them if they refuse (Sahih Muslim 4294). 1938 Alert: “Iran’s Ahmadinejad: West will burn in nations” fury,” from Iran Focus, with thanks to Mackie:
Tehran, Iran, Apr. 12 — Iran’s radical President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in a fiery sermon demanded that “Iran’s enemies”, or the West, bow down before Iran and apologize for having held back Tehran’s nuclear program for three years. He also warned the West that it would “burn” in the “fire of the nations” fury”.
“Those who insulted the Iranian nation and set back Iran’s movement for progress for several years must apologise”, Ahmadinejad said at a rally in the eastern town of Rashtkhar. His comments were aired on state television and carried by the official news agency.
“You must bow down to the greatness of the Iranian nation”, he said, addressing the West.
He added that if the United States continued to seek to use “bullying” tactics then “every nation of the world” would chant “Death to America” and “Death to Israel”.
“If you do not return to monotheism and worshipping god and refuse to accept justice then you will burn in the fire of the nations” fury”, Ahmadinejad said.
