Ahmadinejad: Iran and Venezuela pursuing "divine goals"

He appreciates Imam Chavez:
Iran's President, Dr. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, in a farewell meeting with the outgoing Venezuelan Ambassador to Tehran, Arturo Anibal Gallegos, said in Tehran on Monday that Iran and Venezuela are moving in the direction of a unified route in the way of divine goals and humanitarian objectives. According to ISNA, he said that the Islamic Republic of Iran and Venezuela's cooperation should encompass regional boundaries in South America, and they should adopt a unified stand in dealing with ongoing developments in South America, Africa and Asia.

President Dr. Ahmadinejad reiterated that though once Cuba and Venezuela were the only active states in the direction of revolutionary goals in the fight against the global arrogance, today, all nations in South America have bastioned against the fronts of enemies strongly.

The outgoing Venezuelan ambassador, for his part, called for active involvement of Iran in his country, stressing that strengthening the monetary fund and establishing a joint national bank could help Tehran and Caracas to deal properly with global economic crises.
Elsewhere in the Iranian news, Prosecutor-General Najafabadi, declares that Iran has always "showed great kindness to the Bahai":
[...] The top Iranian judiciary official made the remarks in response to Western claims that the Islamic Republic has violated the rights of Bahais in Iran.

According to the Iranian cleric, there is irrefutable evidence that many adherents of the Bahai sect are in close contact with the enemies of the Iranian nation and have strong links to the Zionist regime.

"We have always showed great kindness to the Bahai citizens in Iran. We just oppose such relations," he explained.

Although members of the Bahai sect have admitted their charges in various cases, the West, especially the United States, claims that Iran has violated their human rights by making attempts to suppress the cult.

"We (as the state) offer a variety of services to the Bahai sect in Iran and respect them as human beings, but not as insiders, spies, or a political grouplet supported by Britain and Israel to cause disturbance in Iran," Najafabadi went on to say. [...]
And in other news undoubtedly related to smashing the plots of the World Arrogance, New Orleans now has its own intifada.
