IRIB: "Material world has reached its end"

This is a little sad. I like the world.
President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Monday that the Columbia University incident was a scenario carefully designed to tarnish the image of the Iranian nation.

President Ahmadinejad made the remarks while addressing presidents of universities, teaching staff and students during a ceremony at Tehran University to kick off the new academic year.

The Columbia scenario was following certain objectives the most important of which was to quell the voice of the Iranian nation.

He reiterated that the material world and in fact materialism have reached their end.
What would be the point of materialism without a material world?
President Ahmadinejad addressed the Columbia University on September 24, during his stay in New York to attend the 62nd session of the United Nations General Assembly.

The president stressed that the so-called democracy and human rights seekers have no strategy for settling problems of today's world including Iraq, Palestine and Lebanon.
As you may have read, Ahmadinejad was evidently also heckled at Tehran University by students chanting "Death to the dictator." One banner read "Why only in Columbia? We have questions too!" Materialists I guess.
