From the Iranian News Service comes the latest sermonizing from the terrorists as to their "rights" to have nuclear power (i.e., nuclear weapons):
Former president Ayatollah Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani said here Wednesday the Iranian nation will get with wisdom its rights with respect to its nuclear program.
"The arrogance and its allies will be regretful if they obstruct the Iranian nation's access to the latest science, said Rafsanjani in his second sermon to a large group of worshipers at the auspicious Eid-ul-Adha (Feast of Sacrifice) congregational prayers at the Tehran University Campus.
