In dealing with Iran: Is the US & Israel caught between a Barack and a hard place?

November 13, 2008

The Barack Obama – Mahmoud Ahmadinejad face off.
One a pathological narcissist, the other a megalomaniac.
Anyone with an ounce of common sense will dread the outcome.

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s message, sent last Thursday, was the first time an Iranian leader has offered such wishes to the winner of a U.S. presidential election since the two countries broke off relations after the 1979 Islamic Revolution and the hostage crisis at the U.S. Embassy.

Isn’t that precious, Ajad a kindred (as in power hungry) spirit reaching out to O. Heh Color me not surprised. Ajad the poison dwarf’s way of buttering up O. The ‘ol ego stroke, bait in a trap. I’m sure narcissistic O fell for it. Nanananana I am the healer of Nations. Iran has reached out to me. Me! The ‘one’ and only me, Barack Obama. The first US President in 30 years to be congratulated by the Iranian Regime. Hope and change, baby!

Translation of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s letter to Barack Obama:

In the name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful

Mr. Barack Obama

President-elect of the United States of America

I congratulate you on having gained the majority of the votes of those who took part in the election. As you know, the chances that God gives to his subjects pass swiftly. They can be used for the perfection of humanity and to the benefit of nations or, God forbid, to the detriment of nations.

I hope you will choose to honor the real interests of people and justice and equity over the insatiable appetites of the selfish minority. Use this chance to serve to the extent you can. And leave a good name behind for yourself.

People expect an immediate and clear response to the pressure for fundamental change in the American government’s policies, both foreign and domestic. This is the desire of all the world’s nations and of the American nation as well, and it should be the objective and basis of all your future government’s programs and actions.

On the one hand, the American nation, which has spiritual inclinations, expects your government to focus its energy and will on serving the people; dealing with the current economic crisis; restoring the country’s standing, morale and hope; eradicating poverty and discrimination; and renewing respect for individuals, their safety and their rights. It also expects policies that will strengthen the foundations of the family — part of the teachings of the holy prophets, who are also revered in America.

On the other hand, the nations of the world expect an end to policies based on warmongering, invasion, bullying, trickery, the humiliation of other countries by the imposition of biased and unfair requirements, and a diplomatic approach that has bred hatred for America’s leaders and undermined respect for its people. They want to see actions based on justice, respect for the rights of human beings and nations, friendship and non-intervention in the affairs of others. They want the American government to keep its interventions within its own country’s borders.

In the sensitive Middle East region, in particular, the expectation is that the unjust actions of the past 60 years will give way to a policy encouraging full rights for all nations, especially the oppressed nations of Palestine, Iraq and Afghanistan.

The great civilization-building and justice-seeking nation of Iran would welcome major, fair and real changes, in policies and actions, especially in this region.

If steps are taken in the path of righteousness, toward the goal of carrying out the teachings of the holy prophets, it is hoped that almighty God will help and that the enormous damage done in the past will be somewhat diminished.

I ask the high God to grant all of humanity and all nations health and happiness, honor and prosperity, and to grant rulers and officials the ability to learn from the past and to use every chance to serve, to spread love and kindness, to eradicate oppression, to do justice and to follow the holy guidelines.

Mahmoud Ahmadiniejad

Bla..bla..bla. Mr High and Mighty Ajad lecturing the US. What a load of hog wash. Iran does not follow the high standards that he demands of the US. Not by a long shot. Fantasy does not mirror reality. The Iranian regime is a horrid evil regime. Religion (if that is the way you would prefer to refer to it as. I do not.) in Iran is overbearing and oppressive. The Iranian regime is not defending it’s peoples rights. Under an Islamic regime the people have no rights. Human rights do not exist in Iran.

And as far as the “goal of carrying out the teachings of the holy prophets, holy guidelines” mumbo jumbo is concerned. It is a revealing peek into Ahmadiniejad’s twisted Islamic world view. Do not think for one minute that his goal is not Islamic world domination. The teachings of the holy prophets tell him so. A goal Islam has had it’s eyes on from day one. Ahmadiniejad will most certainly do all within his power to fulfill that goal if given half a chance.
He…must…be…stopped.

Moving along..
So much for the Mahmoud love letter to Barack.
The Ajad-Obama post election after glow was fleeting.

President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad sent Obama a congratulatory letter last week, but by Wednesday his welcoming tone had dissipated. “It doesn’t make any difference for us who comes and who goes,” he said in a speech in the northern town of Sari. “It’s their actions which are studied by the Iranian and world nations.”

Barack “one night stand” Obama, your new BFF Mahmoud is a fickle lover.

Since 2006 Iranian leaders have demanded that talks be held with out pre-conditions. Barack “no pre-conditions” Obama should be “their” man correct?

That was then. This is now?

Has Iran done an about face?

TEHRAN, Nov. 12 — Since 2006, Iran’s leaders have called for direct, unconditional talks with the United States to resolve international concerns over their nuclear program. But as an American administration open to such negotiations prepares to take power, Iran’s political and military leaders are sounding suddenly wary of President-elect Barack Obama.

“People who put on a mask of friendship, but with the objective of betrayal, and who enter from the angle of negotiations without preconditions, are more dangerous,” Hossein Taeb, deputy commander of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps, said Wednesday, according to the semiofficial Mehr News Agency.

Obama is “more dangerous”. Has anyone told him that yet? I wonder how the almighty diplomat of all diplomats will take it.

Tricky bastards. They CAN NOT be trusted. Ajad and his mad mullahs have an agenda. And it does not include bowing to pressure over milk and cookies.

Meanwhile back in Iran.

On Wednesday, Iran test-fired a two-stage, solid-fuel rocket, Defense Minister Mostafa Mohammed Najjar announced on state television. He said the missile had a range of 1,200 miles — meaning that it could reach Israel and U.S. targets in the Middle East.

As if that news is not frightening enough. Let’s re-visit Iran’s “World without Zionism” congress.
Pictures worth a thousand worries…

Iran hosts ‘The World without Zionism’ – The Jerusalem Post

Anybody who recognizes Israel will burn in the fire of the Islamic nation’s fury (while) any (Islamic leader) who recognizes the Zionist regime means he is acknowledging the surrender and defeat of the Islamic world,” Ahmadinejad said.

A World Without Zionism or America
Excerpt

Oct 27, 2005
The antipathy of the Iranian regime to Zionism and Israel has never been a secret, but it was not until the “World without Zionism” congress held in Iran, in anticipation of Al-Qods (Jerusalem) day, that extremist President Ahmedinejad announced the goal of wiping Israel off the map. Wiping out Israel is not alone on his agenda. Of course, nobody should have had any illusions about the purpose of a “World Without Zionism” conference and the fact that the President of Iran chose to address it, but his remarks caused quite a stir. He repeated the threat on Al-Qods day.

Israel is not the only country to wipe out. While he’s at it, Ahmedinejad plans to get rid of the US too:

“… They [ask]: ‘Is it possible for us to witness a world without America and Zionism?’ But you had best know that this slogan and this goal are attainable, and surely can be achieved.
[…]

“Ahmadinejad said: ‘The issue of this [World without Zionism] conference is very valuable. In this very grave war, many people are trying to scatter grains of desperation and hopelessness regarding the struggle between the Islamic world and the front of the infidels, and in their hearts they want to empty the Islamic world.

“‘… They [ask]: ‘Is it possible for us to witness a world without America and Zionism?’ But you had best know that this slogan and this goal are attainable, and surely can be achieved.

“They (world powers) should not think that the Iranian nation and other nations in the region will take off their hands off the throat of the Zionists and their supporters.” –AFP

The Iranian nation and countries in the region will not rest until Palestine is free and criminals punished,” he said. –Gulf Daily News

When it is all said and done…

In her article “MALIGNANT GRANDIOSITY, SHAME, NORTH KOREA, AND IRAN” (Read it all) Dr Sanity quotes “Sigmund, Carl and Alfred”.

Diplomats do not solve problems, they effect useful compromise. That is nice when we are dealing with Canada, France or Luxembourg. Diplomats are ineffective when comes to dealing with evil, because evil must be defeated, not compromised with. Evil must be addressed, head on and relentlessly. If you are unsure about what is and isn’t real evil, you are indeed an idiot.

The Islamic Republic of Iran = Evil

US Pres-Select Barack Obama = (time will tell)
