After praising Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, he urged Iranians to resist their enemies but with "the least costs and with prudence and wisdom," a hard jab at Ahmadinejad, who many within Iran's circle of power say has needlessly alienated the world with his persistent questioning of the Holocaust.Qalibaf said Iran's revolution had changed the character of the Middle East. "We remember that in 1960s during the reign of Gamal Abdel Nasser in Egypt, when Syrian, Iraqi and Egyptian armies united against Israel, they could not resist more than three days and even lost the Sinai desert to the Zionists," he said.

is there an eccho in this manbar?

We haven't forgotten Mahmoud's campaign slogans before his election and his performance after his election.  Campaign trail rhetoric from Qalibaf is not impressive to me.  Another Sepaah man at the helm is not my idea of a suitable replacement for Mahmoud's poor performance which has bankrupted Iran and alienated the country in international circles.
