EXTRACTS FROM WHAT IRANIAN PRESIDENT AHMADINEJAD SAID AT THE UN CONFERENCE AGAINST RACISM IN GENEVA

"Following the Second World War, they resorted to military aggression
to make an entire nation homeless under the pretext of Jewish
suffering. They sent migrants from Europe, the United States and
other parts of the world in order to establish a totally racist
government in the occupied Palestine. In fact, in compensation for
the dire consequences of racism in Europe, they helped bring to power
the most cruel and repressive racist regime in Palestine."

"It is all the more regrettable that a number of Western governments
and the United States have committed themselves to defend those
racist perpetrators of genocide, while the awakened, conscious and
free-minded people of the world condemn aggression, brutalities and
bombardments of civilians of Gaza."

"Ladies and gentlemen: What are the root causes of US attacks against
Iraq, or invasion of Afghanistan? Was the motive behind the invasion
of Iraq anything other than the arrogance of the then-US
administration and the mounting pressures ... to expand their sphere
of influence, seeking the interest of giant arms manufacturing
companies, affecting another culture with thousands of years of
historical background, eliminating potential and practical threats of
Muslim countries against the Zionist regime? Or, to control and
plunder energy resources of the Iraqi people. Why indeed were almost
a million people killed and injured, and a few more millions were
displaced and became homeless? Why indeed have the Iraqi people
suffered enormous losses amounting to hundreds of billions of
dollars? ... Wasn't the military action against Iraq planned by the
Zionists and their allies in the then-US administration, in
complicity with the arms manufacturing companies, and the owner of
the world?"

"The United States and its allies not only have failed to contain the
production of drugs in Afghanistan, but also the illicit cultivation
of narcotics multiplied in the course of their presence. The basic
question is what was the responsibility of the then-US administration
and its allies? Did they represent countries of the world? Have they
been mandated by them? Have they been authorized on behalf of the
people of the world to interfere in all parts of the globe, and of
course mostly in our region? Aren't these measures a clear example of
egocentrism, racism, discrimination, or infringement on the dignity
and independence of nations?"

Ladies and gentlemen: Who is responsible for the current global
economic crisis? Where did the crisis start from? From Africa? From
Asia? Or was it first from the United States?"

"Dear friends, today, the human community is facing a kind of racism
that has tarnished the image of humanity. In the beginning of the
third millennium, the world Zionism personifies racism that falsely
resorts to religion, and abuses religious sentiment to hide their
hatred and ugly faces. However, it is of great importance to bring
into focus the political goals of some of the world's powers and
those who control huge economic resources and interests in the world,
and mobilize all their resources, economic and political influence,
and world media to render support in vain to the Zionist regime, and
maliciously to diminish to indignity and disgrace this regime."
