Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad claimed in a speech in Teheran on Tuesday afternoon that Hizbullah had emerged the winner in Lebanon, and called the battles "God's promise." "God's promises have come true," Ahmadinejad told a huge crowd waving Hizbullah banners and Iranian flags. "On one side, it's corrupt powers of the criminal US and Britain and the Zionist...with modern bombs and planes. And on the other side is a group of pious youth relying on God." He added that "the nations of the region are seeking a Middle East that is free of American-British hegemony." Regarding Iran's nuclear program, the Iranian president said, "The Iranian nation supports the law, but will not give up its right to uranium enrichment for peaceful needs. Iran has reached a level of technology that allows her to produce nuclear fuel for peaceful purposes."
