More genocidal threat from Iran’s Thug-In-Chief, who is evidently now such a household name that this AFP story doesn’t think it necessary to identify him as President of Iran or give his first name. “Iran’s Ahmadinejad says Israel is ‘doomed,'” from AFP, June 11 (thanks to Sr. Soph):
Ahmadinejad said on Friday Israel was “doomed” and singled out US President for scorn, blaming Washington for orchestrating new nuclear sanctions against Teheran.

The firebrand leader accused global nuclear powers of “monopolising” atomic technology and said the new sanctions would “have no effect” — reserving most of his tough rhetoric for the United States, not his ally Beijing.
Swatting aside the US leader’s offers of dialogue and rapprochement if Iran relents on its nuclear ambitions, Ahmadinejad said: “I think President Obama has made a big mistake… he knows the resolution will have no effect.
“Very soon he will come to understand he has not made the right choice and he has blocked the way to having friendly ties with the Iranian people.”…
“The main problem is the US administration, and we have no problem with others,” he told reporters, accusing the United States of seeking to “swallow” the Middle East.
“Not only China but others also announced the resolution is going to open a way for diplomacy.”…

“They are trying to save the Zionist regime, but the Zionist regime will not survive. It is doomed.”…
Ahmadinejad said the entire architecture of global power was built to keep out smaller states.
“We have always said the Security Council is a tool in the hands of the United States. It is not democratic, it is a tool of dictatorship,” he said.
“Five powers have the veto right and the nuclear bombs and the monopoly and they want to monopolise nuclear energy for themselves,” he added….
