An Egyptian citizen attempted to assault Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in Cairo on Thursday evening.
According to a report in the website of the Egyptian daily Al-Masry Al-Youm, the assault occurred at the residence of Mojtaba Amani, the acting Iranian ambassador in Cairo, during a ceremony commemorating the anniversary of the Iranian Islamic Revolution.
The attacker attempted to physically assault Ahmadinejad as he chanted, Down with Iran, he must leave, Al-Masry Al-Youm reported.
A journalist for the Turkish news agency Anadolu who was present at the scene said that the aggressor was swiftly removed by security guards.
This is the second attempted attack on the Iranian president during his stay in Cairo.
The meeting between Ahmadinejad and Abbas came on the same day that the Iranian president proudly declared that the Iranian people are ready to march on Israel to wipe it out if the Jewish state attacks the Islamic Republic.
The people of Iran are ready to march on Israel to wipe it out if it launches into an adventure against Tehran and attacks the country, the Iranian president told Egyptian media.
The Zionists... hope to aggress Iran and attack it, but they are very afraid of the Iranian reaction and of the consequences of such an attack, he added.
Our defense forces are capable of dissuading any aggressor and making him regret his act, Ahmadinejad said.
On Monday, the Iranian president said that the period of the Zionists is over ...Israelis should give their place to others.

Once is happenstance, a second time is coincidence...
I gusess we’ll have to see what happens next. It is kind’a obvious he isn’t well liked in Egypt.
To the MB, anything that isn’t Sunni isn’t Islam, and Shia is worse.
President “I’m a Nut Job” have better remember that there is one group of people that Arab Sunni Moslems HATE ALMOST a much as Americans and/or Isrealis(Jews) and that group is PERSIANS(Iranians/Shias)!
Yes, and you "should give" it up. Not that they can force you to. It's bizarre. He's asking Zionists to leave voluntarily. He is not threatening to wipe the "Zionist entity" off the map, only sort of asking you to leave.
I hate Obama for a number of reasons, but foremost for giving weapons to the Muslim Brotherhood.
