Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is capitalizing on the Egyptian conflict to spew American and Israeli hate, hosting a massive rally in Tehran to bolster the protests in Egypt. According to AFP, "massive crowds of Iranians chanted pro-Egypt and anti-American slogans while marking the 32nd anniversary of the Islamic revolution."
"We will soon see a new Middle East materializing without America and the Zionist regime and there will be no room for world arrogance (the West) in it," Ahmadinejad told cheering crowds in Tehran's Azadi (Freedom) Square.
"They (the United States) have adopted a friendly face and saying 'we are friends of people of North Africa and Arab countries', but be watchful and united. You will be victorious," he said.
"Iranian nation is your friend and it is your right to freely choose your path. Iranian nation backs this right of yours."
As normal for the fiery hardliner, he blamed Israel for everything bad in the world. "Come and take away the Zionist regime which is the source of all crimes... take it away and liberate the region," he said. "Free the region and give it to the people and take this regime, which is the child of Satan, out."
According to AFP, the Iranian people obliged their leader with pro-Egypt, anti-American slogans.
"Egyptians, Tunisians, your uprisings are just and we are with you," they said, as well as "Hosni Mubarak 'mubarak' (congratulations) on the uprising of your people!"
