Iran Focus

Tehran, Iran, Apr. 12 – Iran's radical President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in a fiery sermon demanded that "Iran's enemies", or the West, bow down before Iran and apologize for having held back Tehran's nuclear program for three years. He also warned the West that it would "burn" in the "fire of the nations' fury".

"Those who insulted the Iranian nation and set back Iran's movement for progress for several years must apologise", Ahmadinejad said at a rally in the eastern town of Rashtkhar. His comments were aired on state television and carried by the official news agency.

"You must bow down to the greatness of the Iranian nation", he said, addressing the West.

He added that if the United States continued to seek to use "bullying" tactics then "every nation of the world" would chant "Death to America" and "Death to Israel".

"If you do not return to monotheism and worshipping god and refuse to accept justice then you will burn in the fire of the nations' fury", Ahmadinejad said.

He once again accused the West of launching a "psychological war" against Iran.

On Tuesday, Ahmadinejad declared that Iran had joined the Nuclear Club.

"I officially announce that Iran has joined the world's nuclear countries", Ahmadinejad said in a speech that was broadcast on state television.

The UN Security Council adopted a "Presidential Statement" unanimously on March 29 giving Iran 30 days to suspend all of its uranium enrichment activities and resume its cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency.
