Ahmadinejad's hero's welcome

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad had a triumphant return home on Tuesday according to several accounts in the media:
In Teheran, some 200 people gathered at the airport to give Ahmadinejad a hero's welcome and bunches of flowers as he returned home.

Iranian state TV described him as having defended Palestinian rights against a racist regime. The official IRNA news agency, which strongly supports Ahmadinejad, quoted lawmaker Mohammad Reza Bahonar as saying that Ahmadinejad's speech in Geneva was a "great achievement for (Iran's ruling) system."

State television also reported Tuesday that Iran's parliament speaker has warned Israel against a possible attack on the country's nuclear facilities.
Here's another account:
Ahmadinejad, returning to Tehran yesterday, gave a speech before a group of students lauding his own performance in Geneva and promising a consistent strategy of, in effect, hijacking international organizations and conferences:
After this I will participate in all international summits to the displeasure of all enemies. . . . If they leave, we will arrange all the summits, but it is such a strange thing that they are not ready to even listen to parts of the crimes they have committed against humanity. How are they going to prepare for the prosecution [awaiting them] . . .?

Thanks to divine wisdom, the criminal heads of state of Western countries will soon be tried for their crimes against humanity. . . . Those arranging the summit had planned everything, they had invested a lot to weaken the Islamic Republic, but as usual they had not counted on one thing, which is the divine cunning from which the Islamic Republic benefitted....
And finally there is this from IRNA - Iran's news agency: President
Ahmadinejad and his accompanying delegation arrived in Tehran at 7:45 am.

The Islamic Republic of Iran’s President Ahmadinejad who was in Geneva for two days to take part at the UN Conference, titled the Durban II, in his address at the general gathering of the event said that the sound of the crash of the columns of the global oppression is heard now.

He also said that the path for the Zionists’ taking advantage of the political means of the international organizations needs to be blocked.

The IRI President’s address was presented at the conference in which 4,500 NGOs were present and was covered live by all major world radio and television stations.
Some five hundred million people in five continents watched President Ahmadinejad’s address at Durban II Conference live from Geneva.

During the Iranian president’s address some hooligans commissioned by the international Zionism organs tried to disturb the conference hall’s atmosphere, but they did not succeed to accomplish their goal.

Also, the delegations of some western countries, totaling a few dozens out of thousands of attendants at the hall walked out sympathizing with the racist Zionist regime when the IRI president was speaking in condemnation of the Zionists’ racist nature.
That ought to teach Ahmadinejad a lesson, eh?

Something tells me that the Iranian people were not able to watch the broadcast live.

I wonder why. Because so few showed up at the airport to greet the returning "hero?"

So 200 in a (paid) crowd is impressive? Barack must pay his crowds better.
