Iran feels no threat from enemies: Ahmadinejad

TEHRAN, May 20 (MNA) -- Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has stated that Iran feels no threat from its enemies and can respond to any attack.

“Today, Iran is capable of turning any base from which a bullet is fired against Iran into a hell,” he said during a visit to Semnan Province on Wednesday.

 

Ahmadinejad pointed out, “In the past, some countries… used to threaten Iran. However, I should say that today, artillery, tanks, and missiles are no longer effective. These words are uttered by some politically backwards people.”

 

He was referring to Israeli officials’ recent flurry of threats to attack Iran unless it halts its peaceful nuclear activities.

 

However, the president insisted, “The Iranian nation has always sought justice… The Iranian nation wants peace and has compassion and has been a pioneer in monotheism and philanthropy.”

 

“Unfortunately, some believe that we will just be sitting in Tehran, Semnan, Mashhad, and Ahvaz, and the Zionists will arrive at our borders with the ‘from the Nile to the Euphrates’ motto. This is a satanic idea,” Ahmadinejad observed.
