The United States urged Tehran on Saturday to “heed the will of the Iranian people” after Iranians elected moderate cleric Hassan Rohani to be their country’s next president.
“We respect the vote of the Iranian people and congratulate them for their participation in the political process, and their courage in making their voices heard,” the White House said in a statement.
Iran’s president-elect Hassan Rohani continued with the traditional anti-Israel rhetoric made famous by his predecessor President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Wednesday.
“When some say that all options are on the table and when a miserable regional country says such things, it makes you laugh,” Rohani said Wednesday.
“Who are the Zionists to threaten us?”
The official IRNA news agency cited Rohani as saying close Iranian-Syrian ties will be able to confront “enemies in the region, especially the Zionist regime,” aka Israel.
Not enough? Need more?
The official IRNA news agency on Tuesday cited Hassan Rohani as saying close Iranian-Syrian ties will be able to confront “enemies in the region, especially the Zionist regime,” aka Israel. Rohani also said that Syria will “overcome its current crisis.”
The note was in response to Assad’s congratulatory message on Rohani’s June election. Tehran has sided with Assad’s regime in Syria’s civil war.
Rohani also wrote to Hezbollah leader, Hassan Nasrallah, saying Iran backs the “steadfast nation” of Lebanon and the Palestinians, a reference to the terrorist Hamas group.
Iran’s Foreign Ministry has said earlier Tuesday that Prime Minister Netanyahu seeks to damage ties between Iran and the world, referring to the Jewish state as “a warmonger regime.”
He’s just Islamofascism with a smiling face.
Hi yourself, Ayatollah Dickweed. Argo [bleep] yourself.
