QUOTE OF THE DAY: ZIONISTS’ DECEITFUL CONTROL
From Iranian President Ahmadinejad’s recent speech at the UN (see also the petition below denouncing his rhetoric):
“The dignity, integrity and rights of the American and European people are being played with by a small deceitful number of people called Zionists. Although they [the Zionists] are a minuscule minority, they have been dominating an important portion of the financial and monetary centers as well as the political decision-making centers of some European countries and the US in a deceitful, complex and furtive manner.It is deeply disturbing to witness that some presidential or premiere nominees in some big countries have to visit these people, take part in their gatherings, swear their allegiance and commitment to their interests in order to attain financial or media support . . . “
