Hardline Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad accused the United States and Israel on Tuesday of staging an anti-government protest in which at least eight people died, saying it was a “nauseating play.”
His talk of a theatrical piece “commissioned and sold out” by the country’s two arch-foes, came as Iran’s conservative parliament called for opposition demonstrators to be given maximum punishment.
“Iranians have seen lots of these games,” the president was quoted by state news agency IRNA as saying.

Americans and Zionists are the sole audience of a play they have commissioned and sold out. A nauseating play is performed.
Meanwhile, speaker Ali Larijani said on television that “parliament wants the judiciary and intelligence bodies to arrest those who insult religion and impose the maximum punishment on them without reservation.”
Parliament also condemned “disgusting comments” by Western governments about Sunday’s unrest, after they unanimously denounced the deadly crackdown in the Islamic republic. ”
