Ahmadinejad blasts Israel, U.S.

On a visit to Sudan, Iran’s president blamed the world’s ills on the United States and Israel.
“There is no place in the world that suffers from divisions and wars unless
America or the Zionists’ fingerprints are seen there,” Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said
Thursday during a visit to Sudan, according to The Associated Press.

In an
apparent reference to U.S.-led efforts to deny Iran the means of building
nuclear bombs, Ahmadinejad said, “They want to keep science in their hands only… they don’t want the rest of the world to progress.”

Iran’s nuclear program
has stirred concern among its Arab neighbors, many of whom, as Sunni
Muslims, fear the prospect of Shi’ite hegemony in the region. But Ahmadinejad said Muslims
should stick together.

“Our
strength and the cornerstone of the victory is in our unity,” he said. “We have
to pay attention to the devils who want to cause divisions among us.”
