Ahmadinejad on Sunday harshly criticized the United Nations Security Council for its threats to impose sanctions on defiant Tehran over its nuclear program.
President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Tuesday said Iran would soon celebrate completion of its controversial nuclear fuel program.
“With the wisdom and resistance of the nation, today our position has stabilized. I’m very hopeful that we will be able to hold the big celebration of Iran’s full nuclearization in the current year,” the hard-line president told reporters during a press conference.
Iran’s current calendar year ends on March 20.
The hard-line president also claimed that international community was caving it to Tehran’s demand for a nuclear program. He did not elaborate.
The Iran nuclear “POINT OF NO RETURN” is approaching.
Israel is NOT going to wait for this announcement or any announcement that Iran has sufficient nuclear material to manufacture a nuclear weapon.
Benjamin Netanyahu , former Prime Minister, head of the opposition and Chairman of the Likud Party of Israel gives the key address at a session titled Challanges of the Jewish People at the beginning of the 21st Century on the second day of the General Assembly of United Jewish Communities taking place in Los Angeles, Monday, Nov. 13, 2006.
Drawing a direct analogy between Iran and Nazi Germany, Likud leader Benjamin Netanyahu asserted Monday that the Iranian nuclear program posed a threat not only to Israel, but to the entire western world. There was “still time,” however, to prevent Tehran from acquiring nuclear weapons, he said.
“It’s 1938 and Iran is Germany. And Iran is racing to arm itself with atomic bombs,” Netanyahu told delegates to the annual United Jewish Communities General Assembly, repeating the line several times, like a chorus, during his address. “Believe him and stop him,” the opposition leader said of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. “This is what we must do. Everything else pales before this.”
While the Iranian president “denies the Holocaust,” Netanyahu said, “he is preparing another Holocaust for the Jewish state.”
