Ahmadinejad Says Israel’s Desire to Attack it is ‘Childish’


ahmadinejadIsrael has a “childish” desire to attack Iran and Tehran is capable of defending itself, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Thursday, according to a Reuters report.  

“They wish to hurt the Iranian nation. They are waiting for the chance. They know that Iran does not attack anybody and they know that Iran knows how to defend itself,” he told a news conference in the Pakistani capital Islamabad.

“We don’t accept the hegemony of Israel. They wish to attack Iran but it is like a childish desire,” the Iranian president said.

Ahmadinejad, Reuters reports,  was speaking after attending a summit of developing nations, where six world powers agreed to seek renewed talks with Iran as soon as possible, reflecting a heightened sense of urgency to resolve a long rift over Tehran’s disputed nuclear activity and avert the threat of war. Their call coincided with growing evidence of Iran expanding nuclear capacity in an underground bunker.
