Full text of Ahmadinejad's Speech to the UN General Assembly

Read the words without the interpretative spin from a FOX News anchor.

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad

(NEW YORK) - It took little time for American media pundits to go on the offensive, condemning Iranian President Ahmadinejad's speech at the UN General Assembly.

Debbie Menon with, summed up the immediate political bashing by saying, "The never-ending commentary has begun."

Along with others who have already read the full text of Ahmadinejad's speech, Menon asks others to read the text and determine whether anything is outrageous and/or offensive in this particular speech.

Menon said, "Please make the distinction between what Ahmadinejad said today ... and ... what some folks are already saying that he said. Please think for yourself and draw your own conclusions. For peace is the goal. You will notice that Mr. Ahmadinejad used the word 'vicegerents' in his speech. Not to worry. I looked it up. A vicegerent is 'an administrative deputy'."

64th Session of the United Nations General Assembly

23 September 2009

In the Name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful

"All praise be to Allah, the Lord of the Universe, and peace and blessing be upon our Master and Prophet, Mohammad, and his pure Household, and his noble Companions"

"Oh, God, hasten the arrival of Imam Al-Mahdi and grant him good health and victory and make us his followers and those who attest to his rightfulness"

Mr. President,
Ladies and gentlemen,

I thank the Almighty God for granting me, once more, this opportunity to address this important international meeting.

I wish to begin by congratulating you, Mr. President, for having assumed the presidency of the 64th Session of the UN General Assembly and wish you all the success. I also extend my thanks to H.E. Mr. Miguel d'Escoto Brockmann, President of the 63rd Session of the General Assembly, for his excellent stewardship of the work of the General Assembly during his term.

Over the past four years I have talked to you concerning the main challenges facing our world. I have talked about the roots and underlying causes of these challenges and the need for the world powers to review their outlook and workout new mechanisms to address the pressing international problems. I have talked about the two conflicting outlooks prevailing in our world; one that is based on the predominance of its materialistic interests through spreading inequality and oppression, poverty and deprivation, aggression, occupation and deception, and tends to bring the entire world under its control and impose its will on other nations. This outlook has produced nothing but frustration, disappointment and a dark future for the entire humanity.

The other outlook is the one that spouses with the belief in the oneness of the Almighty God, follows the teaching of His messengers, respects human dignity and seeks to build a secure world for all members of the human community, in which everybody can equally enjoy the blessings of sustainable peace and spirituality. The latter is an outlook that respects all human beings, nations, and valuable cultures in defiance of all types of discrimination in the world, and commits itself into a constant fight to promote equality for all before the law on the basis of justice and fraternity, laying a solid foundation to guarantee equal access for all human beings in their quest to excel in knowledge and science.

I have laid emphasis time and again on the need to make fundamental changes in the current attitudes towards the world and the human being in order to be able to create a bright tomorrow.

Friends and Colleagues;

Today, I wish to share with you a few points about the changes that should take place.


Clearly, continuation of the current circumstances in the world is impossible. The present inequitable and unfavorable conditions run counter to the very nature of human kind and move in a direction which contravenes the truth and the goal behind the creation of the world.

It is no longer possible to inject thousands of billions of dollars of unreal wealth to the world economy simply by printing worthless paper assets, or transfer inflation as well as social and economic problems to others through creating sever budget deficits. The engine of unbridled capitalism with its unfair system of thought has reached the end of road and is unable to move. The era of capitalist thinking and . imposition of one's thoughts on the international community, intended to predominate the world in the name of globalization and the age of setting up empires is over. It is no longer possible to humiliate nations and impose double standard policies on the world community.

Approaches in which realization of the interests of certain powers is considered as the only criteria to weigh democracy, and using the ugliest methods of intimidation and deceit under the mantle of freedom as a democratic practice, and approaches through which sometimes dictators are portrayed as democrats, lack legitimacy and must be totally rejected.

The time has come to an end for those who define democracy and freedom and set standards whilst they themselves are the first who violate its fundamental principles. They can no longer sit both the judge and the executor and challenge the real democratically- established governments.

The awakening of nations and the expansion of freedom worldwide will no longer allow them to continue their hypocrisy and vicious attitudes. Because of all these reasons most nations including the people of the Untied States are waiting for real and profound changes. They have welcomed and will continue to welcome changes.

How can one imagine that the inhuman policies in Palestine may continue; to force the entire population of a country out of their homeland for more than 60 years by resorting to force and coercion; to attack them with all types of arms and even prohibited weapons; to deny them of their legitimate right of self-defense, while much to the chagrin of the international community calling the occupiers as the peace lovers, and portraying the victims as terrorists.

How can the crimes of the occupiers against defenseless women and children and destruction of their homes, farms, hospitals and schools be supported unconditionally by certain governments, and at the same time, the oppressed men and women be subject to genocide and heaviest economic blockade being denied of their basic needs, food, water and medicine.

They are not even allowed to rebuild their homes which were destroyed during the 22-day barbaric attacks by the Zionist regime while the winter is approaching. Whereas the aggressors and their supporters deceitfully continue their rhetoric in defense of human rights in order to put others under pressure.

It is no longer acceptable that a small minority would dominate the politics, economy and culture of major parts of the world by its complicated networks, and establish a new form of slavery, and harm the reputation of other nations, even European nations and the U.S., to attain its racist ambitions.

It is not acceptable that some who are several thousands of kilometers away from the Middle East would send their troops for military intervention and for spreading war, bloodshed, aggression, terror and intimidation in the whole region while blaming the protests of nations in the region, that are concerned about their fate and their national security, as a move against peace and as interference in others' affairs. Look at the situations in Iraq and Afghanistan.

It is no longer possible to bring a country under military occupation in the name of fight against terrorism and drug trafficking while the production of illicit drugs has multiplied, terrorism has widened its dimensions and has tightened its grips, thousands of innocent people have been killed, injured or displaced, infrastructures have been destroyed and regional security has been seriously jeopardized; and those who have created the current disastrous situation continue to blame others. How you can talk about friendship and solidarity with other nations while you expand your military bases in different parts of the world including in Latin America. This situation cannot continue. It is all the more impossible to advance expansionist and inhuman policies on the basis of militaristic logic. The logic of coercion and intimidation will produce dire consequences, exacerbating the present global problems.

It is not acceptable that the military budget of some governments exceeds far larger than those of the entire countries of the world. They export billions of dollars of arms every year, stockpile chemical and biological weapons, establish military bases or have military presence in other countries while accusing others of militarism, and mobilize all their resources in the world to impede scientific and technological progress of other nations under the pretext of countering arms proliferation. It is not acceptable that the United Nations and the Security Council, whose decisions must represent all nations and governments by the application of the most democratic methods in their decision making processes, be dominated by a few governments and serve their interests. In a world where cultures, thoughts and public opinions should be the determining factors, the continuation of the present situation is impossible, and fundamental changes seem to be unavoidable.


Any change must be structural and fundamental both in theory and practice, involving all domains of our life. The outdated mechanisms which themselves were instrumental in and the root cause for present problems in human societies can never be used to bring changes and create our desired world. Liberalism and capitalism that have alienated human beings from heavenly and moral values will never bring happiness for humanity because they are the main source of all misfortune wars, poverty and deprivation.

We have all seen that how the inequitable economic structures controlled by certain political interests have been used to plunder national wealth of countries for the benefit of a group of corrupt business giants. The present structures are incapable of reforming the present situation.

The political and economic structures created following the World War II that was based on intentions to dominate the world failed to promote justice and lasting security.

Rulers whose hearts do not beat for the love of humankind and who sacrificed the spirit of justice in their minds never offer the promise of peace and friendship to humanity. By the grace of God, Marxism is gone. It is now history. The expansionist Capitalism will certainly have the same fate. Because based on the divine traditions referred to as a principle in the Holy Quran, the wrong like the bubbles on the surface of water, will disappear. There remains only what that can be used forever towards the interest of human societies.

We must all remain vigilant to prevent the pursuit of colonialist, discriminatory and inhuman goals under the cover of the slogans for change and in new formats. The world needs to undergo fundamental changes and all must engage collectively to make them happen in the right direction, and through such efforts no one and no government would consider itself an exception to change or superior to others and try to impose its will on others by proclaiming world leadership.


All problems existing in our world today emanate from the fact that rulers have distanced themselves from human values, morality and the teachings of divine messengers. Regrettably, in the current international relations, selfishness and insatiable greed have taken the place of such humanitarian concepts as love, sacrifice, dignity, and justice. The belief in the One God has been replaced with selfishness.

Some have taken the place of God and insist to impose their values and wishes on others. Lies have taken the place of honesty; hypocrisy has replaced integrity and selfishness has taken the place of sacrifice. Deception in interactions is called foresight and statesmanship; looting the wealth of other nations is called development efforts; occupation is introduced as a gift towards promotion of freedom and democracy, and defenseless nations are subjected to repression in the name of defending human rights.

Friends and Colleagues;

Settlement of global problems and administration of justice and maintenance of peace will only be materialized with collective determination and cooperation of all nations and states. The age of polarizing the world on the premises of the hegemony or domination of a few governments is over.

Today we must rise together in a collective commitment against the present challenges; we must take change seriously and help others through collective work to return to the basic moral and human values. Messengers were sent by God to show the light of the truth to human kind, they came to make people aware of their individual and social obligations. Piety, having faith to Allah and its judgment of human behavior or conduct in the next world, belief in the primacy of justice in both lives, seeking one's happiness, well being and security in the happiness, well-being and security of others, respecting human kind, making efforts to expand love and compassion against hostility were all on top of the teachings offered by the Messengers of God from Adam to Noah, from Noah to Abraham, Moses, Jesus Christ and the last one Prophet Mohamamd (PUH). All of them came to do something to eliminate war and ignorance, to eradicate poverty and uproot discrimination in order to spread happiness in the entire world. They are the best gifts that God Almighty has granted to human beings.

If the belief in Entezar( A waiting patiently for the Imam to return) will turn into a common and we join hands to achieve prosperity for all, then there will be more real and increasing hopes for reform.


In my opinion, we have several important agendas in front of us. The Secretary-General and the UN General Assembly can take the lead by undertaking necessary measures for the fulfillment of our shared goals on the basis of:

1. Restructuring the United Nations in order to transform this world body to an efficient and fully democratic organization, capable of playing an impartial, equitable, and effective role in the international relations; reforming the structure of the Security Council, specially by abolishing the discriminatory privilege of veto right; restoration of the inalienable rights of the Palestinian people by organizing a referendum and free elections in Palestine in order to prepare a conducive ground for all Palestinian populations, including Muslims, Christians and Jews to live together in peace and harmony; putting an end to all types of interferences in the affairs of Iraq, Afghanistan, Middle East, and in all countries in Africa, Latin America, Asia and Europe.

As our great Prophet said, a government may survive with blasphemy, but never with oppression. Oppression against Palestinians and violation of their rights still continue; a new group of Palestinians who lived in al-Qod al-Sharif were again forced out of their homes as the destruction of their residential homes continues by the occupiers; bombings in Afghanistan and Pakistan have not yet sopped; and Guantanamo Prison has not yet been shut down and there are still secret prisons in Europe.

Continuation of the present situation adds to hostilities and violence. Oppression and military aggression must be stopped. Regrettably, official reports concerning the brutalities of the Zionist regime in Gaza have not been completely published. The Secretary-General and the United Nations have crucial responsibilities in this respect and the international community is impatiently waiting for the punishment of the aggressors and the murderers of the defenseless people of Gaza.

2. Reforming the current economic structures and setting up a new international economic order based on human and moral values and obligations. A new course is needed that would help promote justice and progress worldwide by flourishing the potentials and talents of all nations thus bringing well-being for all and for future generations;

3. Reforming the international political relations based on the promotion of lasting peace and friendship, eradication of arms race and elimination of all nuclear, chemical and biological weapons;

4. Reforming cultural structures , respect for diverse customs and traditions of all nations, fostering moral values and spirituality aimed at institution of family as the backbone of all human societies;

5. Worldwide efforts to protect the environment and full observance of the international agreements and arrangements to prevent the annihilation of nature's non-renewable resources.


Our nation has successfully gone through a glorious and fully- democratic election, opening a new chapter for our country in the march towards national progress and enhanced international interactions. They entrusted me once more with a large majority this heavy responsibility.

And now, I want to declare that our great nation that has made great contribution to the world civilization, and the Islamic Republic of Iran as one of the most democratic and progressive governments of the world is ready to mobilize all its cultural, political and economic capabilities to engage into constructive process aimed at addressing the international concerns and challenges. Our country has been a main victim of terrorism and the target of an all-out military aggression during the first decade of the revolution.

All through the past thirty years we have been subject to hostile attitudes of those who supported Saddam's military aggression and his use of chemical weapons against us, and then they took military action in Iraq to get rid of him. Today, our nation seeks to create a world in which justice and compassion prevail. We announce our commitment to participate in the process of building a durable peace and security worldwide for all nations based on justice, spirituality and human dignity, while being dedicated to strongly defending our legitimate and legal rights.

To materialize these goals, our nation is prepared to warmly shake all those hands which are honestly extended to us. No nation can claim to be free from the need to change and reform in this journey towards perfectness. We welcome real and humane changes and stand ready to actively engage in fundamental global reforms.

Therefore, we emphasize that:

The only path to remain safe is to return to Mmonotheism (believing in the Oneness of God) and justice, and this is the greatest hope and opportunity in all ages and generations. Without belief in God and commitment to the cause of justice and fight against injustice and discrimination, the world architect would not get right.

Man is at the center of the universe. The man's unique feature is his humanity. The same feature which seeks for justice, piety, love, knowledge, awareness and all other high values. These human values should be supported, and each and every fellow humans should be given the opportunity to acquire them. Neglecting any of them is tantamount to the omission of a constituting piece of humanity. These are common elements which connect all human communities and constitute the basis of peace, security and friendship.

The divine religions pay attention to all aspects of human life, including obedience to God, morality, justice, fighting oppression, and endeavor to establish just and good governance. Prophet Abraham called for Oneness of God against Nimrod, as Prophet Moses did the same against Pharaohs and the Jesus Christ and Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon them) did against the oppressors of their own time. They were all threatened to death and were forced out of their homelands. Without resistance and objection, the injustices would not be removed from the face of the earth.


Dear friends and colleagues;

The world is in continuous change and evolution. The promised destiny for the mankind is the establishment of the humane pure life. Will come a time when justice will prevail across the globe and every single human being will enjoy respect and dignity. That will be the time when the Mankind's path to moral and spiritual perfectness will be opened and his journey to God and the manifestation of the God's Divine Names will come true. The mankind should excel to represent the God's "knowledge and wisdom", His "compassion and benevolence", His "justice and fairness", His "power and art", and His "kindness and forgiveness".

These will all come true under the rule of the Perfect Man, the last Divine Source on earth, Hazrat Mahdi (Peace be upon him); an offspring of the Prophet of Islam, who will re-emerge, and Jesus Christ (Peace be upon him) and other noble men will accompany him in the accomplishment of this, grand universal mission. And this is the belief in Entezar (Awaiting patiently for the Imam to return). Waiting with patience for the rule of goodness and the governance of the Best which is a universal human notion and which is a source of nations' hope for the betterment of the world.

They will come, and with the help of righteous people and true believers will materialize the man's long-standing desires for freedom, perfectness, maturity, security and tranquility, peace and beauty. They will come to put an end to war and aggression and present the entire knowledge as well as spirituality and friendship to the whole world.

Yes; Indeed, the bright future for the mankind will come.

Dear friends,

In waiting for that brilliant time to come and in a collective commitment, let's make due contributions in paving the grounds and preparing the conditions for building that bright future.

Long live love and spirituality; long live peace and security; long live justice and freedom.

God's Peace and blessing be upon you all.

Excellent speech... Loved the last sentence. War is like the political parties in the U.S. ... a thing best left behind in history... as a reminder of mankinds stupidity to allow sick old men to order young men and woman to kill citizens in other countries. Time to show that peace and cooperation is the start to fixing problems in this world.

What a display of courage,boldness and bravery.At a time when no one dare stand up against these world powers.At a time when every nation is consumed in paranoia.Many call him mad man.Now I know it is madness to stand by the truth if it is means putting your life and security at risk.This biased stereotyping ought to be broken.We cannot afford to live encaged in the dragnet of these world powers for the rest of our lives and be passed on to the succeeding generations after generations.We cannot afford to continue to be complacent as if nothing is happening around us.We ought to combat this scourge.We ought to break free from the shackles of these hidden hands that bring about miseries to the humanity.My skepticism as to who was behind the 9/11 incident is almost concluded.I read from newspaper article that the 1500 or so Jewish employees of the Twin Towers did not report to work on that day.As if to imply that the Jews were privy if not in complicity to it.Any group behind these world disorders should be reminded to come to their senses that one day all their shenanigans will be uncovered.It will spew stench from under layers after layers of masquerading.Absolutely, they cannot escape the dire consequences of their brazen deeds.The boldness of Pres. Ahmadenijad in setting out his political convictions should inspire other world leaders to follow his lead.

President of Iran should speak not just for 911,globalism and capitalism,colonialism,imperialism but also the communism and fascism and nazism in the last 100 years which destroyed all the humanity.He did not talk about the world elites of every nations who destroyed their own nations. He did not talk about destroying all the atomic and all weapons in every nation. He did not talk about the armies of the world and policing which has increased against the humanity in every part of the world.He did not talk about the degradation and corruption, hypocrisy and destruction of the nations and communities, families and all generations,and the world economic crisis which are suffering all of them.So we need someone to speak the full truth and not just a part of it, looking only to other side, only toward the west but in all the planet where is a big mess created by all elites

Israel is about to become a burning cinder. Good riddance, it is an evil culture and has been going back thousands of years. I truely believe Lucifer lives hare and seeded all the filthy people. Burn them all up, then give what is left to the Palestinians, then those who support them.  Remember, right wingers are mentally doused, and people who use multiple names when commenting here don't know who they are at all, later.

My hats off to President Ahmadinijed for yet again standing up to Evil and injustice. He is amongst a few leaders in the world who cannot be bought or intimidated. He is a man of charactger who has bravely embraced righteousness. If anyone cannot see that than they are weak victims of intense conditoning which the zionist owned and controlled media has mastered the art in. I wonder how long it will take for people to wake up from their deep slumber and recognise the truth?!

I think iran should allowed to have nuclear plant to uplift there economy. India are allowed to have , Pakistan is allowed to have , Iseral have then why not Iran. They should or nobody should this is double stantdard and not good. They should allowed to do Civil Nuclear Programs any way.

If you dare to compare Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's speech to the UN General Assembly, Sept. 24, 2009 with the WORLD CONFERENCE AGAINST RACISM, Full Text of President Ahmadinejad's Remarks at U.N. Conference on Racism and Full text of Ahmadinejad's Speech to the UN General Assembly (Sep-23-2009) then you have to have conclusion that Mr. Ahmedinejad is a saint and the successive Israeli Prime Ministers are nothing but war criminals. Come on get real and debate on the basis of facts and reality. Please do not use emotion or excuse of so called anti-Semitism.

I just got the news where another nuclear site has been exposed in Iran. Not good timing for them. I would keep your gas tank full people, and tell your congress people to forget cap and scam and push for more drilling and a national policy goal of 100% energy independence asap. Because Israel is about to go for it. One hint on an upcoming attack is if you start seeing Sunday's political shows discussing this over the weekend. Israel will take advantage of any negative news about Iran. Also the VP of Brazil is pushing for that country to develop nuclear weapons. Think dirty bombs and terrorists. We simply cannot allow any proliferation by banana republics and 3rd world countries.

Editor: Sounds like you want to help instigate a little conflict, eh?  I hope you aren't one of those Israeli's paid to troll key words and drop little bombs.  Iran has clearly stated that it is not building nuclear weapons, which the politically unstable Israel has hundreds of.  Why on earth shouldn't everyone have one?  I'm sure the Israeli's may be considering launching an unprovoked war, but that is because they are controlled in part, by political warmongers.

Iranian President Ahmadinejad calls upon God to judge between nations. The West guides itself by the torch of Charles Darwin and Atheist Science. Interesting the gauntlet thrown down between God and Atheism.

Michael S. Milne September 25, 2009 11:47 am (Pacific time)

This speech is not about imparting information or views. It is about offering Muslim conversion to the greatest mass audience everywhere. It can now be argued that everyone who has listened to the speech or read its text has been offered Allah's salvation. This man doesn't care whether people accept the offer or not, only that they have been offered the chance to do so. In that way he can justifiably increase the potential destruction he may eventually take part in, with a "clear conscience" that he has been acting in accordance with the will of Allah.

What a blatant double standard and hypocrisy! Poor Palestinians are terrorists because they have been playing at their mother’s cradle, backyards and schoolyards like anybody else! However another group of people running to the holy land from all over the world and they have been claiming to obtain passports from God and saying: 1. God gave us this land. 2. Out God gave us permission to evict and ethnically cleanse anyone who are not Jews, i.e. Muslims, Christians etc; etc. 3. We are the chosen people. 4. We are the superior race. 5. We are the Semites (and therefore we are superior)! Yet, they deny all f the above. However, if you trace Israeli law, history and society then you will find each and every claim above are true! Surprisingly, the Jewish racist and fascist claims and actions continuum are not racist and offensive. Ironically the Iranian President’s speech is humane and just. What a blatant double standard and hypocrisy!

It's amazing how so many of you believe this tyrant is on the up and up. He is the reason that so many people are about to be killed in Iran and in neighboring countries. Do not be surprised that he has many devil agents here in the states and I hope they get his supporters and their families instead of honest patriotic Americans. Iran has been directly killing Americans and those that support this regime will have some answering to do, but my hope is you all head down the food chain pronto. Peace.

Editor: I think I have heard it all now.  I know there are ties between deaths of U.S. soldiers in Iraq and items that are from Iran, but that seems like more of a business relationship.  The Israeli's pound away on the innocent Palestinians but somehow you find a way that it is all the fault of the President of Iran, when he hasn't lifted a finger toward you.  I agree the man has plenty of faults like any political figure, but Iran has no history of any aggression toward the U.S. other than the hostage crisis of 1979.  The U.S. on the other hand, blew an Iranian airliner full of families out of the sky in a case of mistaken identity.  The Israeli's attacked the U.S.S. Liberty during the Six Day War while it was flying the American flag.  I don't have any idea how you can keep the wool so firmly in place over you eyes when it comes to all of this.  All people deserve to live, all liars are wrong, all bombs dropped in Gaza are wrong.

Amazing speech by ahmadinejad. He touched on all the things on the peoples minds who do not have the power to speak up. most important point he made ; "they are not against weapons, but they oppose other nations" Well done Ahmadinejad Ahmadinejad IS my president

Just curious.. I counted 21 evils in Ahmadinejad's speech. I would be interested in knowing of anyone claims to have found any evils in President Obama's speech. I didn't find any, but I would like to know if it's because I honestly am truly rich and righteous, or whether I am just rich and think I'm righteous..

Please note that this is the speech that Ahmadinejad made to the UN General Assembly in September 2008, not 2009. In case you are uncertain about this, notice that his speech this year (check YouTube) mentions "four years," not three. The text on the Haaretz site even has the date of September 24, 2008:

He pretty much hits the nail on the head doesnt he? Would be nice if we had politicians that told the truth...What a concept huh? Dont know what mainstream corpotate/government owned U.S. media is saying, cause I dont bother with their mis-information, but I can imagine.

Are you really that dense? This creature is recycling Protocols of Zion's Elders, and you think there's nothing outrageous or offensive???
