President Ahmadinejad's Speech at UN General Assembly 

Iranian President Dr Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has emphasized that today, more than any other time in history, the world is witnessing large-scale Islamic awakening. Delivering a key speech at the United Nations General Assembly in New York on Thursday, Pres. Ahmadinejad emphasized that today, more than any other period in history, we are seeing widescale awakening in Islamic countries, in Asia, Europe, and the Americas, and each day more people are joining the justice- seeking and freedom-seeking movements, according to IRIB World Service.

Pres. Ahmadinejad presented some statistics about rising poverty, wars, conflicts, mass killings and insecurity in today's world, and said the real reason for this sorry state of affairs is the way the world is managed by a relatively small number of countries.

In further remarks, President Ahmadinejad asked rhetorically: "Who started the First and Second world wars, who started the Korean war, who started the Vietnam war, and who invaded Iraq and Afghanistan? "

Following these remarks a number of Western delegates left the General Assembly hall.

The Iranian President added: "It is clear as broad daylight that those who were responsible for the slave trade centuries ago, the colonialists, those who started the First and Second world wars, under a new guise today, have taken control of the UN security council, and control all the major political and economic institutions of the world today. But are these people qualified to manage the world? Does everyone accept their claim that they are the sole defenders of democracy, freedom and human rights? They have used these bogus claims to attack and occupy independent nations.

President Ahmadinejad asked: "Can the flower of democracy and freedom blossom from the barrel of NATO guns. Can this flower blossom from NATO bombs and missiles?

The Iranian president further asked: "Shouldn't those responsible for the slave trade and colonialism pay reparations (damages) to those countries which have suffered because of slavery and colonialism?
