A little wake-up call for those thinking the Iranian leadership’s objectives are not ideological. Ahmadinejad has said that Iran needs to help create “just” regimes around the world–that’s global jihad. That’s not just providing limited support to militants in Iraq. That’s not using groups like Hezbollah as negotiating pieces. That’s not an attempt to protect one’s own security from an imperialist United States. This is an ideological commitment to spread radical Islam in any way possible. The significance of this statement can not be overstated.
In a June 3 speech commemorating the death of the founder of the Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said that the Islamic revolution has no borders and must not be limited to Iranian territory only.
He said that the arrogant capitalist, liberal-democrat regimes had reached their end, and in their stead a regime that carries out the directives of the divine prophets was emerging.
He called for acting to rapidly establish just regimes in the world, otherwise the “satans” would impose new regimes on the world.
He also called the Holocaust “a great historic fraud.”
