Ahmadinejad: `Israel will not survive'

Iranian president Ahmadinejad had a few caustic remarks to make in a national broadcast of a speech in Islamshahr, a suburb southwest of Teheran.

"The Zionist regime is counterfeit and illegitimate and cannot survive," he said in a speech to a crowd in the town of Islamshahr in southwestern Tehran.

"The big powers have created this fraud regime and allowed it to commit all kind of crimes to guarantee their interests," he added.

Ahmadinejad also reiterated, one more time in case anyone ever had any doubts, that Iran will not back down even "an inch" from its nuclear program.

"The world must know that the Iranian people will not back down even an inch on its rights to nuclear energy."

"The enrichment of uranium and having nuclear fuel are among the main demands of Iranian nation," he said.

Anyone else but me wonder why the West continues not to take him at his word?
