Defense Minister Ehud Barak on Saturday criticized Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's decision to appoint Ahmad Vahidi as his country's defense minister. In a statement, Barak said that appointing Vahidi, who is wanted in the 1994 bombing of a Jewish cultural center in Buenos Aires, "proves yet again the nature of the regime in Iran, and its leaders' intentions." "The world must learn from this incident, and look into the intentions of the Iranian government, especially its leader, which has appointment a terrorist as its defense minister," he added.
