Ahmadinejad said that the main historical obstacle on the way of the `Caravan of Monotheism’ is global arrogance, led by the US.
He then said outcries, threats and resolutions are all signs of the US desperation and “their (Americans’) outcries all testify their being on the verge of collapse.”
Muhammad learned monotheism from Christians
Muslims today believe the myth that Muhammad introduced monotheism to the area around Mecca and Arabia in general. The truth is that Muhammad got tired of the Christians constantly preaching monotheism to him fellow Arabs, knowing in his heart, that they were correct in their criticism of Arab paganism. There can be little doubt that Christians, in their evangelism of the are around Mecca, charged the Arabs with paganism and polytheism. Christians criticized those worshipping 260 pagan gods at the Kabah and offered Christianity as a far superior monotheistic religion. In his heart, Muhammad knew the Christians were right and had a better religion of monotheism. But some Muslims today, are totally ignorant of the fact that monotheism was widely preached before, during and after the rise of Muhammad, by the Christians. It was a well known theology and the Arabs were familiar with it. Amazingly, today Muslims criticize as polytheists, the very one’s who taught Muhammad about monotheism! By the time Muhammad came along, the pagan Arabs were ripe for conversion to Monotheism because of the preaching of Christians.
Noting that all people in the universe now think the root cause of problems is the tyranny governing the world, the President said the key to the mankind problems is recourse to Quran and acting on it.

Basically, I think he is saying that in order to save the World, everyone should convert to Islam and the United States is preventing that from happening.

I don't know what he means by caravan of monotheism. Is the US not considered (however inaccurately) a Christian nation? Or is he going by the (slightly more accurate) notion that the US is an atheist nation? That might make more sense.
