Ahmadinejad: Mideast without Israel and US

"I can safely say that they will simply not be able to do anything and that this is the end of the road."

The Iranian Revolutionary Guards website, Sepah News, reports:

In his first press conference of the new year 1390 [Iranian New Year was on March 21] which took place on Monday evening, April 4th, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad asserted that a new Middle East, without the specter of the Zionist regime, America and its proxies, is taking shape.

Ahmadinejad warned that the U.S. and its allies plan to partition Jordan under the guise of creating a Palestinian state which is in fact nothing more than an attempt to save the Zionist regime. He cautioned: “The governments and peoples of the region must be vigilant and aware, not to fall pray to the conspiracy and the deception of the U.S., its allies and the Zionist regime.”

Remarking on U.S. foreign policy, Ahmadinejad maintained that both the Bush and Obama administrations actually followed the very same course of action, and added: “If the previous U.S. president left office with his head hanging in shame, his successor will be leaving the political scene with more derision and humiliation.” Quoting Obama’s campaign slogan of change and supporting the rights of people, Ahmadinejad then said: “Behind this attractive appearance lurks the same old criminals, professional and typical thieves, those same slave owners and colonialists and this time their aim is to once again save their own banking system and imperialist interests. The last U.S. administration very openly and publicly rolled out its tanks, cannons, machine guns and bullied its way into the field; the successor who then claimed to be for change has, on the one hand, the arms and military force and, on the other hand, the apparatus of deception and intrigue.”

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, president of Iran, is in a state of denial when he says that the United States and Israel are losing their influence in the Middle East.

The fact is that Israel has defeated every nation in the Middle East with which it has had a war, since Israel became an independent nation in 1948. Moreover, Israel remains America's closest ally in the Middle East, despite America's disappointment that Israel has continued to build housing in East Jerusalem and Gaza -- on land claimed by Palestinians to be theirs.

As for Ahmadinejad's denial that Israel and the United States will continue to play a major role in the affairs of the Middle East, there is a saying that is very appropriate for him: "Denial is not a river in Egypt."

Frankly, I think the man is deluded by his own arrogance.
