Tehran Radio Says Bush Victory Good For 'Zionists'

Washington, 3 November 2004 (RFE/RL) -- Iranian state radio commented today that President George W. Bush's reelection may be good news for his supporters, "particularly the Zionists," but it will not serve U.S. interests.

According to the report, the gap between the United States and the international community will widen if the White House continues with "its unilateral policies." The commentary went on to accuse the Bush administration of warmongering and hegemony, and advised the White House to work on confidence building.

The commentary also said that approximately 50 percent of the U.S. population opposes President Bush's domestic and foreign policies.
