Tehran, Iran, Feb. 23 – Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad reiterated on Thursday his allegations earlier in the day that Israel and the United States were behind Wednesday’s bombing of a holy Shiite Shrine in the Iraqi city of Samarra.

“Today, a group of defeated and evil Zionists and occupiers carried out this barbaric act to create a barrier in the face of a justice-seeking wave of Islamic nations”, Ahmadinejad said at a rally in the town of Ardel, south-western Iran, the official state news agency reported.

“They imagine that they can prevent the wave of justice-seeking by these acts, but they should know that these actions do not result in anything other than the freedom-seeking nations of the world’s hatred of them”, he added.

Earlier in the day, while addressing a crowd in Shahre-Kord, the hard-line president said, “These desperate acts [were”> planned and carried out by a group of defeated Zionists”.

“You must know that these acts will not save you from the anger and strength of free nations”, Ahmadinejad said in comments directed at the United States.

“We warn the arrogant powers without fear of becoming isolated in the world that you should be careful of your own isolation since the powers claiming to defend democracy have no national or international support”.

Wednesday’s blast destroyed the golden dome of the Shrine in Samarra which was at the resting place of two revered Shiite Imams. It brought about a backlash of sectarian fighting as several dozen Sunni places of worship were attacked across Iraq.
