    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...

    Egyptian security forces arrested four men outside a mosque in Cairo for trying to attack Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad during his visit to the country, NBC News reported. The men, including a Syrian, belonging to the ultra-conservative Sunni Salafist movement, attempted to attack the Iranian leader outside the central Al-Hussein mosque in Cairo. One of the men threw a shoe at the Shiite Iranian president, whose visit to Egypt has been widely denounced by the country’s Sunni Muslims. According to NBC News, the Al-Hussein Mosque is revered by Shiite Muslims, who are widely abhorred by conservative Sunni Muslims, including members...

    President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad announced that he is willing to be the first Iranian sent into space on behalf of the nation’s space program. "I am ready to be the first human to be sent to space by Iranian scientists," Ahmadinejad said on Monday, adding that he is willing to sacrifice his life for the country’s space program. "Sending living things into space is the result of Iranian efforts and the dedication of thousands of Iranian scientists," he said, according to the Mehr news agency. Ahmadinejad’s remarks come following the announcement last week that Iran had successfully launched a monkey into...

    The Iranian parliament has been ordered to drop its probe of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Iranian state news agency IRNA reported Wednesday. The country's "Supreme Leader," Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, allegedly expressed concern Iran's enemies would benefit from the interrogation. Khamenei himself initiated the probe, carried out by his own supporters in the parliament. For the first time in Iranian presidential history, Ahmadinejad was summoned for questioning by the legislative body in March of this year. However, this week Khamenei said, “We demand that the respected representatives not continue” with the probe over the economic crisis and the nosedive in the value...

    Iran's judiciary has rejected a request by President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to visit Tehran's Evin prison, its spokesman said on Sunday. "As we are faced with special circumstances and the country's priorities are the economy and people's living conditions, all authorities should focus on solving key issues... visiting a prison is extraneous," chief prosecutor Gholam Hossein Mohseni Ejeie told ISNA news agency. "More than seven years of his presidency have passed, and no request was made during that time," he said. Mohseni Ejeie, who also acts as the judiciary's spokesman, suggested that Ahmadinejad's sudden interest in Evin was linked to "a...

    The Israeli Embassy in the U.S. had a field day after the Iranian state-run Fars News Agency used a made up report by the satirical news site The Onion, and passed it off as what they presumed to be real. The fake report stated that a new Gallup poll showed that Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was overwhelming preferred over President Obama by rural white Americans. The Onion headline, “Gallup Poll: Rural Whites Prefer Ahmadinejad to Obama”, was immediately picked up by Fars and hours later the news agency ran an identical story. The Israeli Embassy found this all too amusing,...

    Iran may agree to negotiate its ongoing enrichment of uranium to higher levels if the West recognizes it has the "right" to do so for peaceful purposes, its foreign ministry spokesman said on Sunday, according to a report by Iranian news agency IRNA. However, another news agency quotes the spokesman differently. "If Western countries (accept) that our 20 percent enrichment program is peaceful and then ask us not to do it, the Islamic Republic of Iran will think about their demand," Ramin Mehmanparast was quoted by IRNA as saying. Iran previously rejected the demand to stop higher level enrichment and...

    Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad compared Israel to an annoying insect Saturday, maintaining that the Jewish state poses no threat to Tehran’s nuclear program. "Israel is nothing more than a mosquito which cannot see the broad horizon of the Iranian nation," he said in northeastern Iran's Khorassan province, according to the semi-official Fars news agency. Ahmadinejad said "regional states" were being duped into buying billions of dollars worth of arms from "arrogant and imperial powers," driven, in part, by increasing speculation of an imminent war involving Iran and Israel, the state-run Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA) reported. Such military purchases, he...

    Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says Iran is friendly to Jews, but his problem is Zionists – although he says there are only 10,000 of them in the entire world. Speaking with CNN, he declared, “From the very beginning, we're against Zionists. Zionists are neither Christians nor Jewish. They have no religion. Religion is wealth and money." Interviewer Fareed Zakaria responded with a question that included a simple definition of a Zionist as one who lives in Israel. “No, no,” answered Ahmadinejad. “Zionism is a complicated and terrible party. And to most they have 10,000 members, and 2,000 main members.” However,...

    Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Thursday launched into his customary tirade against Israel and the West at the United Nations. Announcing he planned "to analyze the current situation from a different angle," Ahmadinejad immediately lambasted Israel saying the "Zionist regime imposes terror on the Palestinian people." Ahmadinejad also cast aspersion on the Holocaust and hinted the September 9/11 attacks occurred under dubious circumstances as well. The world, Ahmadinejad mused, "must wonder, if after six decades the Holocaust is still used as an excuse to pay ransom to the Zionists… what will happen if the same amount of money was allocated...

    Columbia University students will dine with Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Wednesday in what has become an annual debate on liberalism and terror. University president Lee Bollinger made it clear he will not join the students, following an incorrect report in Fox News, which later issued a correction. Before Fox News corrected the report, the Israel Law Center (Shurat HaDin) sent a warning letter to the university, stating that “Columbia's plan to host a banquet for visiting Iranian leader Mahmoud Ahmadinejad runs afoul of U.S. anti-terror laws and will subject the university and its officials to both criminal prosecution and...

    Iran said Tuesday it plans to try 26 US officials in abstentia for 'violating human rights,' Farsi-news outlet Qods reports. Most nations regard trials in abstentia a violation of a defendent's right to due process. The move is widely regarded by international observers as posturing on Iran's part aimed at turning the tables on Western nations who have been critical of Tehran's rights record. Iranian Lawmaker Esmail Kosari told Iranian newspapers Monday the Americans would be tried in absentia and their files passed on to international tribunals. Kosari did not identify the officials, but it is likely they are the...

    WASHINGTON (Sept. 26) - President Barack Obama is offering Iran "a serious, meaningful dialogue" over its disputed nuclear program, while warning Tehran of grave consequences from a united global front. "Iran's leaders must now choose — they can live up to their responsibilities and achieve integration with the community of nations. Or they will face increased pressure and isolation, and deny opportunity to their own people," Obama said in his radio and Internet address Saturday.

    Mousavi Accuses Obama of 'Misleading the World' Sunday, June 21, 2009 1:38 PM Author and foreign policy expert Michael Ledeen has published a letter reportedly from the office of Mir Hossein Mousavi, in which the Iranian opposition leader criticizes President Barack Obama for saying Mousavi and Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadenijad are "two of a kind." The letter, addressed to Obama, takes the president to task for the remark, calling it "a grave and deep insult, not just to Mr. Mousavi but especially against the judgment of the Iranian people, against our moral conviction and intelligence, especially those of the young...

    I watched part of the press conference today by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmedinajad today. I heard his claim that the reporting of what was essentially a stolen election was “slander” by Western journalists. He claimed that the arrests and violence with riot police seen beating protesters was just the normal sort of thing that happens when people “leave a soccer stadium”. I listened to him claim that everyone is equal in Iran and that the people arrested were being “fined” by the police for violating traffic laws. He repeatedly claimed that 40 million people voted in Iran and that “safeguards”...

    IN his "first message to the Muslim world" Tuesday, President Obama on Al-Arabiya TV invited the Is lamic Republic in Iran to "unclench its fist" and accept his offer of "un conditional talks." A few hours later, after Obama had appeared on the Saudi-owned satellite-TV channel, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad told a crowd of militants that no talks are possible unless the United States met a set of conditions. He demanded a formal apology for unspecified US "crimes"

    Iran expects a "different approach" from the next US president, whoever wins the November elections, President Mahmoud Ahmadenijad said in an interview published in Italy Wednesday. "Whoever wins the elections, I'm sure that the United States will change, it will have a different approach," the Iranian leader told the Italian daily La Repubblica. "The United States will have a reduced sphere of influence in the world," he predicted, adding: "The new president will have to respond to the real demands of the American people: 40 million American citizens do not have health insurance, the victims of the New Orleans hurricane...
