WASHINGTON- U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) made this statement following Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s remarks at Columbia University.
“I regret that this extremist leader was given such a platform, and it is my hope that the world will understand and appreciate the radical nature of the current Iranian regime. Ahmadinejad supports the destruction of the state of Israel. We would be making a huge mistake miscalculating the Iranian threat to Israel and the region.
“His performance today should reinforce the international community’s desire to impose sanctions against Iran for their efforts to develop a nuclear weapons program. If we act decisively now, with one voice, we could save the world a lot of heartache in the future.”
