Ahmadinejad: Iran will “bring down” Western foes

TEHRAN – july 17  – Iran’s re-elected President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Thursday his next government “would bring down the global arrogance”, signalling a tougher approach towards the West after June’s disputed election.

“The Iranian nation elected somebody they (Iran’s enemies) did not want. The Iranian nation’s choice was their nightmare,” the hardline president told a big crowd at the country’s most prominent religious shrine in the northeastern city of Mashhad.

Ahmadinejad’s fierce attack on Tehran’s “enemies” is likely to further disappoint the United States and its allies, which are trying to engage the Islamic Republic in direct talks over its nuclear programme.

Western leaders have criticised a crackdown on protests that followed the June 12 presidential election, which the defeated moderate candidate Mirhossein Mousavi says was rigged.

Ahmadinejad said enemies had tried to interfere and foment aggression in Iran. He said Tehran wanted “logic and negotiations” but that Western powers had insulted the nation and should apologise.

Iranian leaders often refer to the United States and its allies as the “global arrogance”.

“As soon as the new government is established, with power and authority, ten times more than before, it will enter the global scene and will bring down the global arrogance,” he said.

“They should wait as a new wave of revolutionary thinking … from the Iranian nation is on the way and we will not allow the arrogant (powers) to even have one night of good sleep,” Ahmadinejad said, according to state broadcaster IRIB.

The head of Iran’s Atomic Energy Organisation, an ally of former President Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani, a rival of Ahmadinejad, has stepped down from the post after 12 years, Iranian media reported, without saying whether Gholamreza Aghazadeh’s resignation was linked to the election.

NO “UNDESIRABLE SCENES”

In what would be his first official public appearance since the vote, Mousavi plans to attend Friday prayers in Tehran, to be led by Rafsanjani, an influential cleric who backed him in the election, Mousavi’s website said.

Clearly reflecting concern the event may turn into a show of strength by Ahmadinejad’s pro-reform opponents, Intelligence Minister Gholamhossein Mohseni-Ejei told Fars News Agency:

“The vigilant Iranian nation must be aware that tomorrow’s sermon should not turn into an arena for undesirable scenes.”

A reformist newspaper, Etemad, said Mousavi had voiced continued defiance in a meeting on Tuesday with the family of 19-year-old Sohrab Aarabi, who human rights activists say was killed during last month’s demonstrations.

Mousavi has said he will join a planned group of leading figures to follow up people’s rights and “ignored” votes.

“God willing, we will all move forward in the way that we have chosen … This is an irreversible path,” he told Aarabi’s mother, Etemad reported.

At least 20 people died in post-election violence which the authorities have portrayed as the work of local subversives and foreign powers.

“In this recent election the enemy tried to bring the battlefront to the interior of this country,” said Ahmadinejad, who has earlier described the vote as the world’s “healthiest.”

He added, in comments translated by English-language Press TV: “But I have told the enemies … that this nation … will strike you in the face so hard you will lose your way home.”

He also voiced continued defiance in the row over Iran’s nuclear activities, saying major powers “will not be able to take away the smallest amount of Iran’s rights”.

Iran says its nuclear programme is for peaceful power purposes. Western countries suspect it is aimed at making bombs.

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Wednesday Iran’s intentions were unclear following its election and that President Barack Obama’s offer of talks with Tehran was not open-ended.

Prosecutors to resume their case in Hosni Mubarak’s trial

 Cairo (CNN) — Prosecutors are scheduled to continue their case Wednesday in the trial of former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, who is accused of ordering protesters killed during the country’s uprising last year.

The former president also faces corruption charges. He has pleaded not guilty.
Prosecutors started presenting their case Tuesday with their opening statements.
“Mubarak is a tyrant who aimed to hand the rule to his younger son Gamal, who promoted corruption in Egypt, allowing his friends and relatives to destroy the country without accountability,” Suleiman told the court, according to Khaled Abu Bakr, a civil rights lawyer involved in the trial.
As during his previous appearances, Mubarak was wheeled into the courtroom on a stretcher, with a green blanket draped over him.
After hearing Suleiman speak for an hour Tuesday, the judge adjourned the court until Wednesday.
Abu Bakr said he expected a verdict “before January 25, the anniversary of the revolution,” referring to the beginning of the uprising that ended Mubarak’s 30-year rule in February.
Many Egyptians are critical of the court proceedings and some worry that Mubarak may be acquitted of the murder charges. Five police officers accused of killing protesters were acquitted last week.
Mubarak’s health has been in question since his detention began in April after reports of his cancer and heart problems surfaced in the media.
Former Egyptian Interior Minister Habib El Adly, six of his aides and two of Mubarak’s sons are also on trial on a variety of charges.Sons Gamal and Alaa have also pleaded not guilty.

About 840 people died and more than 6,000 were wounded in the 18 days of uprising that toppled Mubarak, according to Amnesty International.
