Ehsan Naraghi: American and European people do not heed Bush’s adventurisms (265 words)
Ehsan Naraghi, Iranian sociologist living in Paris said: “The president of America does not intend to attack Iran, however, he just wants to keep Zionists content." Naraghi who is visiting Tehran, said to IRANA yesterday, “Zionists are seriously against the improvement of relations between Iran and America.
Naraghi added, “Zionists welcome any form of extremism in Iran and like anti-Islamic Republic groups outside, they like to present this system as another form of Talibanism so that they would have the excuse to approach it as they did in the case of Afghanistan.”
Naraghi suggested that another goal of recent speech of President Bush is to justify the increase of military budget and to please the owners of military industries.
