Ahmadinejad was speaking on the 22nd anniversary of the passing of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, the imam who took over Iran and established the current Islamic Republic.
Amhadinejad declared that hegemony is the "last impediment to the monotheism front," and that with its demise the "monotheistic movement" would achieve lasting "prosperity." He explained that the predominant goal of the "war on hegemony" is to deal with "US domination and Israel's existence."
The Iranian president kept an optimistic tone during his speech at
Khomeini's shrine, saying "I am certain that the region will soon
witness the collapse of Israel and the US," DPA reported.
Ahmadinejad has for half a decade been calling for the removal of what
he often calls the "Zionist entity" from the Middle East, rhetoric also
used by Hezbollah and Hamas of whom Iran supports in their attacks
In 2005, the Iranian president evoked strong international condemnation
when he said Israel should be wiped off the Middle East map and moved to
the United States or Europe.
Commemorating Khomeini Ahmadinejad said that Iranians must remain vigilant as "the
enemy presses ahead with its schemes," Press TV reported.
