US Real Loser of MENA Revolutions

Secretary of Iran's Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) Saeed Jalili said on Friday that Islamic Awakening in the Arab world has driven the US to “desperation and a dead end.”

“It has been caught in a quagmire for years of support for the Zionist regime [of Israel] and regional dictatorial regimes like [those of] Ben Ali and Hosni Mubarak and cannot set itself free through chicanery and fallacy,” Jalili was quoted as saying in a media release from the SNSC.

He was referring to Washington's backing of Tunisia's ousted President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali and former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, who were toppled by popular revolutions in January and February.

“It is now clear that the strategic US policies of the past seven decades have been in contradiction with the causes and interests of the people of the [Middle East] region.”

The comments come one day after US President Barack Obama made a televised speech in which he assured Washington's regional allies that the United States would keep its “commitment to friends and partners.”

Obama also warned Palestinians that they would not gain independence by denying the Israeli regime the “right to exist,” claiming that efforts to “de-legitimize Israel” would fail.

Jalili said Obama's blatant support for Israel demonstrates the racist nature of US policies.

“Desperation, contradiction and deceit are visible in Obama's speech and Obama's open support for a Jewish regime revealed the racist nature of American politics,” he added.

The Iranian official went on to remind the Obama administration that Palestinians consider the Israeli-occupied territories as their homeland.

“This is the demand of the people of the region and they do not agree to less,” he concluded.
