Visiting Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said in a speech in Malaysia that the International Atomic Energy Agency's "treatment of the Islamic Republic of Iran is politically motivated." In his speech, Ahmadinejad said that the US opposition to Iran's nuclear program is an example of Western bullying that is frustrating the entire Muslim world. But a wave of awareness is sweeping the fragmented Muslim world and "will turn into a gigantic force" that will engulf current political alliances, he said. "Bullies and Zionists beware! You are going to fall!" he said. Ahmadinejad attributed most of the problems faced by the Muslim world to the "hegemonic tendencies" of bullying powers. For 60 years, Muslims have lived in anger because of the "occupying Zionist regime," he said Friday. "Not a day goes by without Palestinians being killed, their houses destroyed ... . Unfortunately today the self-appointed champions of human rights are the main backers and full supporters of the Zionist regime."
