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.”
Then addressing U.S. authorities, Ahmadinejad said: “The time of pillaging and imposition on the peoples of the world is over and these forms of crimes and subterfuge will not save the day anymore.”
Returning to his comments, he continued: “I can safely say that they will simply not be able to do anything and that this is the end of the road. With the Lord’s mercy, the people of the region will be victorious and the business of cruelty and malevolence will be shut down forever, and where the just and humane leadership will replace the inhumane and uncivilized authoritarians.”

how can he talk so much when his nose is wider then his mouth.
Why do we have see the face of a Rasha ?
Did anyone notify him that Purim is over. He should know — it’s documented in the records of his country!
If I were him, I wouldn’t attack President Obama. He owes it to President Obama — he saved him when he didn’t help the opposition. He should be relieved that Obama figures that Ghaddafi is a larger threat to humanity than himself. Or is he angry for not getting the “honorary” title?
we should have at least one senator that answers this guy back in the news
This may be a publicity stunt for Obama. While reading this for a minute I felt like defending Obama.
Quoting Obama’s campaign slogan … Ahmadinejad then said: “Behind this attractive appearance lurks…those same slave owners and colonialists and this
Yes, I’m sure Obama’s great-grandparents were slave-owners and colonialists.
Do not defend Obama or Iran both are evil in the eyes of Torah, and just as Haman planned to destroy the Jews with the gallows so to, any plans that his Great-great-great…grandson has planned will end the same way. We must remember Amalek and what they did to our people in the desert and what punishment G-d has given this evil nation.
As it say in the pasukim after ALenu, Do not fear the sudden destruction of evil
From the news source it sounds like it’s not more but his sweet dreams.
I fail to understand why this nonsense even gets into the press.
No. 1: Your comment about Mr. Ahmadinejad’s nose puts you in the company of the anti-Semites of the late-19th and early 20th centuries (and other eras, perhaps), who portrayed Jews in political cartoons with oversized noses. Surely there is something about Mr. Ahmadinejad that is more in need of your comment than his physical appearance. If you cannot think of a more substantive comment, and one without anti-Semitic roods, perhaps you should refrain from any comment. And just to be clear, I am not suggesting that your comment is anti-Semitic, only that it borrows from the same ill-founded reasoning.
You said to ‘zeke613’…”Surely there is something about Mr. Ahmadinejad that is more in need of your comment than his physical appearance.”
And I ask you – Given the statements of this new ‘hitler’, yemach shemo, surely there is something more important for YOU to comment about than zeke613’s remark about this savage’s nose???
No. 11: Hitler had a bad haircut and a terrible mustache. If people had approached President Roosevelt and other world leaders of the 1930’s and said, “That guy in Germany, Hitler, he has a terrible haircut and a terrible mustache, and so we have to relax our immigration laws and allow Jews to seek refuge here,” would that have saved any Jewish lives from the Holocaust? I don’t think so. Do you?
I don’t think anyone here is approaching President Obama with ANY of the thoughts expressed here, be they about his remarks OR his nose.
Everyone is simply expressing their outrage at the new Haman, AND at obama who does not seem to have any serious intentions of doing anything about him.
No. 13 states, in part: “Everyone is simply expressing their outrage at the new Haman, AND at obama who does not seem to have any serious intentions of doing anything about him.”
First of all, not everyone is expressing outrage. That said, I would expect readers of an online news service aimed at the Yeshiva world to express more than simple outrage over important issues. The future of Mr. Ahmadinejad, Iran and all the peoples of the Middle East are too important to be a subject of “simple” taunts, particularly ones with anti-Semitic roots. My initial comment, i.e., that a comment about Mr. Ahmadinejad’s nose echoes the vicious and irrational anti-Semitism of 100 years ago, even if it is not aimed at a Jew, and even if the poster intended no anti-Semitism, was intended to point out the irrationality of the comment, the uselessness of the comment, and, most of all, the damaging nature of the comment because of its echo of the anti-Semitic rhetoric of 100 years ago.
There is a lot to say about Mr. Ahmadinejad, and his words give alarm that if he follows his words with deeds, the Jews within range of Iran’s missiles could face another Holocaust, less than 75 years after the end of the last one. That is why No. 1’s comment is so inappropriate. There is a serious threat posed by Mr. Ahmadinejad and the governing authorities of Iran. Mr. Ahmadinejad’s nose is not part of the threat, and invoking it does not demonstrate the gravity of the very genuine, very real problem posed by Mr. Ahmadinejad’s threats against Israel. Criticism of Mr. A should not be diluted by trivialities like his personal appearance, and calls for action against Mr. Ahmadinejad should not be debased by echoing the irrational and hateful rhetoric of anti-Semites.
I omitted one matter from my previous comment: I will not comment further on this article or any comments in it.
