Iran president: Islam is the solution

TEHRAN -- Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said humanity suffers from arrogant and corrupt governments, stressing Islam was the solution to the world's suffering.

Speaking Thursday at the city of Nikashahr in southeast Iran, Ahmadinejad said, "We see injustice everywhere in the world, as decisions to displace peoples and kill civilians are taken easily while arms factories compete to produce more lethal weapons," the official Islamic Republic News Agency reported.

He said prosperity and opulence was limited to a small part of the world "as the majority of peoples are oppressed and live in poverty and great need."

"Certain big powers incite wars and strife in order to keep their arms factories going and go as far as imposing a ban on food and medicine against peoples who refuse to surrender to their hegemony and arrogance," Ahmadinejad said in an apparent reference to the United States and the West.

"Humanity is suffering from arrogant and corrupt governments and the only means for salvaging humanity is the implementation of Islam which meets all the needs of humans in terms of justice, prosperity, pride and peace for all humanity," he added.

Where does one even start with this nutbag? Last week he said the Holocaust was a myth, then he said all the Jews should be moved to Alaska and now this!


"the implementation of Islam"

I wonder if he means by any means necessary?
