Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has said that Western officials are mistaken if they think that they can bring the Iranian nation to their knees through using the language of force, MNA reported.
Ahmadinejad made the remarks during an address to a large crowd of well-wishers in the city of Rashtkhar, in the northeastern Iranian Razavi Khorasan Province, on Friday.
He said that the hegemonistic powers assume that if they use the language of force and threats against the Iranian nation, the people will give in to threats and relinquish their rights.
He went on to say that if the world's rulers who are in a position of wealth and power worship the one God, they will no longer seek to stockpile chemical and nuclear weapons or to occupy other countries' territories.
"They do not know how to talk about humanity and goodness because they worship Satan instead of God," he stated.
During another speech in Torbat-e Jam, Razavi Khorasan Province, on Thursday, Ahmadinejad said, "Today, we see that there are some around the world who raise hue and cry, put pressure, and ratify resolutions one after another (against Iran). All these attempts are meant to impede the progress of the Iranian nation and undermine their dignity," Press TV reported.
"They should know that this nation will not retreat even an iota from their inalienable rights," Ahmadinejad said.
He emphasized that the era of bullying has come to an end, adding that "It is to the benefit of the ill-wishers of the Iranian people to return to justice, and they should be aware that this nation has made all its enemies regret throughout history."
