Inside the Mind of the Iranian Regime

The Open Source Center has translated remarks made by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on the evening of August 1 to a gathering of ambassadors from Islamic countries serving in Iran:

For about 400 years a horrifying Zionist group have been managing world affairs by being behind the scene of main power, politics, media, monetary and banking centers in the world; so much so that candidates of a huge country with great economic power and over 300 million population need to go and kiss the Zionists’ feet in order to win the elections.

When Ahmadinejad talks about the “Zionists” 400-year grip on power perhaps it’s time to put aside the silly notion that he is describing political rather than anti-Semitic antipathies. Ahmadinejad may not be the top official in Iran, but he does come out of an Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and an education system which inculcates such vitriol.
