Ahmadinejad hits back at Obama
The Asia Times Online reports: “In a sharply-worded press conference, Iran’s President Mahmud Ahmadinejad hit back at Barack Obama, predicting that a future more shameful than his predecessor is awaiting the United States president, whom he accused of adding deception to the mix of George W Bush’s hegemonic policies in the Middle East.
At the same time, instead of an unbounded expression of hostility toward the US, Ahmadinejad in the same Tehran press conference somewhat amended his view by adding that Iran considered itself a friend with all nations and governments against the Zionist regime. Echoing the president’s statement, Iran’s permanent representative to the United Nations, Mohammad Khazaee, said Iran was willing to enter into another round of nuclear talks with the Iran Six nations without any preconditions.
By all indications, Ahmadinejads decision to up the ante against the US president is a reaction to Obama’s recent new year message that reached out to youths to revolt against Iran’s leaders thus following the footsteps of Iran’s spiritual leader, who also lambasted Obama for betraying his promised sea-change in US foreign behavior ” (Ahmadinejad is a human windbag who cannot be trusted. Lying and deceit are practiced and promoted under Sharia law if it promotes Islam. Christianity says: “Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour: for we are members one of another” Ephesians 4:25.)
Ahmadinejad: God has chosen my successor
YnetNews.com reports: “Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says his replacement as Iranian president has already been chosen by God, a local website reported.
Friends told me, We are concerned about the future. Ahmadinejad said in a meeting with council heads in Tehran. I told them, The future has already been determined. Go to work and the results will come.
One of them asked me, ‘Who will be next?’ I said, ‘Don’t you think God knows who’s next.’
Ahmadinejad did not name anyone specific, but according to Iranian estimates he was implying that he wants his associate Esfandiar Rahim Mashai to replace him. Mashai served as Ahmadinejad’s deputy in the past, before being fired for saying that the Iranian people are friends of Israel.
Mashai currently serves as head of the president’s bureau. The two are also related, as one of Ahmadinejad’s sons is married to Mashai’s daughter.
This isn’t the first time that Ahmadinejad, a devout Shiite Muslim, predicts the political future his country. A week before the controversial presidential elections in 2009, Ahmadinejad told his people that he would win ” (His successor could not be more hateful, proud, and belligerent Proverbs 16:18.

Ahmadinejad Calls on World Nations to Unite against Bullying Powers
The Fars News Agency reports: “Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad blasted the attempts made by the arrogant and colonialist powers against the other countries, and urged the world nations to become united against the bullying powers.
He also reiterated that independent states by adopting rational stands can thwart plots of their enemies.
President Ahmadinejad made the remark in a meeting with Lebanese caretaker Foreign Minister Ali al-Shami in Tehran.
The global arrogance is doing its best to save the Zionist regime through suppression of governments and nations that are against the West’s policies.
Ahmadinejad underlined the need to adopt a unified stand in dealing with the bullying powers, and said the arrogant and colonial powers under the guise of backing nations pursue their ill-wishes ”
Ahmadinejad: UN should stop West’s ‘interference’ in Mideast
The Jerusalem Post reports: “Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad told UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon that the UN should stop the interference of Western governments in Middle Eastern affairs, Iranian news agency ISNA reported.
In a phone call with Ban, Ahmadinejad said: The time is ripe for the UN Secretary General to play a historic and important role in resolving problems to avoid another catastrophe as those in Iraq and Afghanistan.
He added that the UN Security council is not able to manage regional developments well due to the ill will of the US and some European states.
Added interference of certain European governments as well as the US in regional affairs has made the situation more concerning and complex, Ahmadinejad explained.
The Iranian president also said his country is ready to play an active role in ending regional problems. ”
