In a direct slap to President Obama’s face, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani called Wednesday for the United States to pay his country reparations for “hostile policies.”

Rouhani told China’s CCTV that Obama administration policies have cost his people “much loss and damage” and that “the Iranian people have suffered a lot as a result of the hostile policies of the U.S.,” according to the Washington Times.

This from a country that has labeled the United States “the Great Satan” for the last 38 years, that has been the chief sponsor and financier of global terrorism for decades, whose stated foreign policy is to wipe Israel off the map, and whose pursuit of nuclear weapons and regional hegemony continues unabated. And, the U.S. government is supposed to give an undisclosed sum of money to appease some ayatollah’s anxieties?

Rouhani, the mouthpiece for Supreme Leader Ayatollah Sayyid Ali Khamenei, said he “expect White House politicians to abandon their past behavior of ignoring Iranian interests” and “take steps in the direction of respecting the rights of the Iranian nation, and at the same time undertake to compensate for the losses inflicted on Iran,” according to the Times’ coverage of the interview.
