ROME – Israel's chief rabbi on Wednesday accused Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad of 'trying to imitate Hitler' and urged the international community to isolate him.
Countries such as Israel and the Gulf states are being equipped with advanced Patriot missile systems, in preparation for missile counter-attacks that Iran is expected to launch, after it has been bombed.
Thursday, 18: Another volatile session today with the price of light sweet crude going as low as $49.90 during the day. An over-supply of crude and lower demand has caused crude prices to fall. Also easing prices is a statement by Saudi Arabian oil ministers that there is no need for an emergency meeting in February.
[Ahmadinejad:]“A friend told me that prices had gone up and a kilo of tomatoes cost 12,000 rials ($1.3),” he said — before being interrupted by MPs who shouted that tomatoes were being sold for 30,000 rials (3.2 dollars) a kilo.
Unimpressed by the heckling, Ahmadinejad replied: “Come and do your shopping in my neighbourhood. Why shop in expensive places?”
“The government is proud of controlling inflation,” he insisted.
