Watch "Fareed Zakaria GPS" on Sunday at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. ET:
On GPS this week: Fareed speaks with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who has been in New York this week on his final visit to the United Nations as Iran’s president, about the crisis in Syria, relations with Israel, and his country’s nuclear ambitions.
“I have always maintained that the Zionist regime has no historical root in the region…why would I say that the Jews have no historical root?” Ahmadinejad says. “They were also in Iran, a great many of them. So that means that Iran belongs to the Jews? Iran belongs to Iranians, whether they’re Jews, whether they’re Muslims or Christians. Please pay close attention here, sir. The borderline is quite thin. Zionism is a doctrine, is a school of thought, is an aggressive school of thought, has nothing to do with the Jewish people.”
Also, Fareed sits down with a Bain Capital Managing Director Steve Pagliuca, who explains what his company does, and talks about the Mitt Romney he knows.
