President Ahmadinejad, tell us what you really think.
As anti-government protests pop up in Iran this week, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad attacked Barack Obama on Friday, saying the American president "doesn't even know how to spell his own name properly" and "can't even control his own emotions."
The jabs came after Obama this week gave cautious support to the protests going on in Iran. But despite that support, the Iranian government is still taking a strong stance against the protesters, again calling for the execution of those who dare to oppose the regime.
A statement issued by the regime in Tehran said, "The public will unite and express hatred toward the barbaric crimes of the incitement leaders and their hypocritical allies."
Iranian lawmakers called for opposition leaders to be tried and executed as punishment for the protests that took place in Tehran on Monday and after the disputed 2009 presidential elections.
"Mousavi and Karroubi should be executed," lawmakers chanted at Tuesday's open parliament session. "Death to Mousavi, Karroubi and Khatami!" they shouted, the state-run news agency IRNA (Islamic Republic News Agency) reported.
"We believe the people have lost their patience and demand capital punishment" a statement signed by three-quarters of the lawmakers read.
