“I assure you that despite all evil and complicated plans, and
thanks to the resistance of nations, there will be a new Middle East but
without the US and the Zionist regime [of Israel],” he told the
Iranians gathering at Tehran’s Azadi Square to mark the 32nd anniversary
of the Islamic Revolution.
The Iranian president also urged the arrogant powers not to
interfere in the internal affairs of the region’s countries such as
Egypt and Tunisia.
“What are you doing in Afghanistan? What are these military bases in
the region for? Are you compassionate or hypocrite?” Ahmadinejad asked.
He also argued that the West is deceitful in claiming that with the
two-state slogan it can pave the way for Israel to dominate the region.
Hailing the revolution in Egypt, the Iranian president warned the
Egyptian people to be vigilant, insisting that “It is your right to be
free. It is your right to decide your government, and it is your right
to freely express yourself about your country and global issues.”
“Be united and do not fear corrupt governments, and victory is near,” he added.
In Egypt, thousands of people gathered outside the presidential
palace in Cairo on Friday after President Hosni Mubarak refused to step
down amid repeated calls for his resignation.
