“We have never been offenders and we have never attacked any country, but we have always been such good defenders that we have made all aggressors repent of their actions,” Ahmadinejad said in a press conference in Tehran on Tuesday, responding to a question about Iran’s response to Israel’s intensified war rhetoric.
He stressed that his accurate analysis of the current situation is that the US administration has come to the conclusion that the costs of extremist Zionists are more than their benefits “and that is why they (the US statesmen) want to harness them in one way or another in order to reach balance and the Israelis have realized this and are seeking adventurism to buy themselves a chance”.
“Israelis think that threatening Iran will give them more time, but they are definitely wrong because their days are numbered and they should go away. If they leave like a good kid, they might have a place in the future world order, but the more they engage in adventurism, the worse their future will be, and no one should have doubt about this,” the president said.
Israel and its close ally the United States accuse Iran of seeking a nuclear weapon, while they have never presented any corroborative document to substantiate their allegations. Both Washington and Tel Aviv possess advanced weapons of mass destruction, including nuclear warheads.
Iran vehemently denies the charges, insisting that its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes only. Tehran stresses that the country has always pursued a civilian path to provide power to the growing number of Iranian population, whose fossil fuel would eventually run dry.
Iran has warned that it would target Israel and its worldwide interests in case it comes under attack by the Tel Aviv.
The United States has also always stressed that military action is a main option for the White House to deter Iran’s progress in the field of nuclear technology.
In response, Iran has warned it would hit the US, Israel and their worldwide interests and close the strategic Strait of Hormuz if it became the target of a military attack over its nuclear program.
Strait of Hormuz, the entrance to the strategic Persian Gulf waterway, is a major oil shipping route.
