Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad: "In my opinion, Lebanon is the scene
of an historic test, which will determine the future of humanity. Everyone
must be put to the test. Everyone. It is inconceivable for anyone who calls
himself a Muslim and who heads an Islamic state to maintain relations under
the table with the regime that occupied Jerusalem. He cannot take pleasure
in the [Israeli] killing of Muslims yet present himself as a Muslim. This is
inconceivable, and must be exposed. Allah willing, it will. You will see. 

 

"This is a mirror that will reveal everyone's true essence. This is not one
of those ordinary tests. Not at all. It will expose everything. A bunch of
people with no honor rule some countries in the region. People are being
killed before their eyes, while they play games, giving compliments to one
another. They think they can let time go by until this issue is forgotten,
and then return to the scene. No, they are mistaken.

 

"In this case, they must make their position clear. Of course, some of them
have taken positive positions, but others have buried their heads in the
sand. Their true character will be exposed in this scene. For them, this is
'the Day that all things secret will be tested.' They will reach this day.
The hypocrisy must be exposed."

 

[...]

 

"England was the founder of this sinister regime. It is an accomplice to all
its crimes. America, which supports it now, is an accomplice to all its
crimes. They are the ones who started this fire. They are the ones who
support [Israel], and encourage it to strike at the people in such a manner.
They say: 'They took two of our soldiers.' Fine, but you took 5,000 of
theirs. Sit together and have a prisoner exchange. But you are destroying
the life of an entire people, and harming innocent people - all for two
soldiers? Do you value human life at all?

 

"They even lie to those wretched people whom they have collected from around
the world and brought to the occupied lands. In fact, their leaders are
having a good time around the world. After all, they are not in the
battlefield. They are outside the scene. They have collected a bunch of
people and put them there to serve as their shields, so they can realize
their colonialist, domineering goals."
