President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Tuesday that the Zionist regime is manifestation of state terrorism, genocide and crimes.Including any big "resistance" leaders? Let's have some names!
Addressing the First International Congress on the Culture of Resistance, inaugurated in Tehran this morning, he regretted that despite the systematic crimes being perpetrated by the occupying regime of Qods in Lebanon and in the Palestinian territories under various pretexts, it enjoys full support from certain bullying powers.
"In the meantime, the same powers term the legitimate defense of the Palestinians and legal resistance of the Lebanese nation to Israeli aggressions as terrorist operations," the president said adding that they talk in a way that the Zionist regime is a peace-seeking regime and the Palestinians are terrorists.
As to critical situation in Afghanistan, Iraq, Palestine and Lebanon, President Ahmadinejad said, "Several hundred people fall victims of terrorism in these countries each day".
The Islamic Republic of Iran also fell victim to terrorism, he said paying tribute to Ayatollah Morteza Motahhari, who was assassinated in 1979 in waves of anti-government terrorist operations carried out by Mojahedin Khalq Organization (MKO) after victory of the Islamic Revolution.
Martyr Motahhari, a cleric, was one of the distinguished cultural figures of Iran, who was a teacher both at the seminary and the university.
"Although terrorism has been wiped out from the Iranian scene by great efforts of the nation, but, the terrorist MKO always enjoyed support from the big powers introducing themselves the so-called human rights advocates for the past two decades", the president noted.
Elsewhere in his speech, he said that organized terrorism was developed in Iraq by the occupying forces in order to pave the way for their continued occupation.
Terrorism has been failed in the world since the global nations have been awakened, the president reiterated adding that if justice is administered throughout the globe no reason will be left for violence and terrorism.
The First International Congress on the Culture of Resistance opened with a speech by Director General of the World Forum for Proximity of Islamic Schools of Thoughts, Ayatollah Mohammad-Ali Taskhiri this morning.
Representatives from 46 world countries have attended the two-day congress.
