Iran's letter to Bush

Hat tip to Here We Stand.
Interesting, the president of Iran seems to be a pluralist, in that he thinks he and Bush worship the same God. He asks Bush a lot of questions, talks some about history, but seems to be saying we'll do our own thing one way or another.

Very interesting to read, Chris.

You know, reading that, it would seem Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is a harmless peacenik. If one wasn't familiar with this man, you might think, "boy, what a great guy, asking for peace, chiding the President for being un-Christ-like, outlining the west's wrongs in Iraq and Guatanomo. This guy's all for peace!" Heck, he even went to the trouble of saying "peace be upon him" when talking about Jesus. Gee, what a good fellow, why don't we invite him to our church?

I think I've grown a new awe of Mr. Ahmadinejad. Until recently I thought he was just another Islamic extremist; now I find out he is much more than that: By pointing out Mr. Bush's hypocrisy (at least, perceived if not realized) according to the teachings of Christ, Mr. Ahmadinejad clevery cloaks his own evil ideology by talking about all the good teachings of Jesus the Messiah, whom Mr. Ahmadinejad, of course, rejects as son of God.

What is so wrong about Mr. Ahmadinejad's ideology? Let's count the ways.

He calls for the destruction of Israel and the Jewish people in Israel. When Jews like myself hear about men in power threatening to destroy us, history has taught us to take it very seriously. That alone should channel our minds towards treating this man's monologues as one would treat Adolf Hitler's. I don't say that lightly or jokingly; this man is calling for the destruction of a people and a nation by violent means. Wake up folks, this is serious, potentially molding our entire century, just as WW2 did the 20th.

The President of Iran also is attempting to obtain nuclear materials. He claims, of course, it's for energy reasons. Let's see: call for Israel's destruction, then obtain nuclear materials. Hmmm...I wonder what he could be planning...oh, what could it be? Oh well, it's not as if lives are at stake, right?

To further his goal of destroying Israel, he's modified Shi'ite Islamic theology: according to the new theology, 12th Imam, the Mahdi, the last known descendant of Muhammed, the 12th Imam by the name of Abul-Qassem Mohammad who disappeared in the 900s, will return if Islam hastens to create war and chaos on the earth. In nearly all of his speeches since his taking of power, including his September address to the U.N. General Assembly, the President of Iran has spoken constantly of hastening the return of the 12th Imam by means of creating violence against Israel and the West, thus paving the way for the 12th Imam, the Mahdi.

What Mr. Ahmadinejad's letter really is, folks, is a way to temporarily pacify the West, lowering the possibility of western intervention in the wild things bubbling over in Iran. Things are getting so hot, they're almost hitting the boiling point; soon things will start to drip down the pot and leak over to others. When that happens, Iran will make its move and hit Israel with a nuclear weapon. Watch for it and remember it was predicted.

What makes this situation worse is that many people of Iran are do not agree with the radicals in power. There is a movement of moderates in the country that opposes the state censorship, the restriction of religion, the oppression of the opposing views, religions, politics of the ruling zealots. It's too bad those people will be swallowed up in Iran's coming wave of nationalism and support of its coming war on Israel.

THanks for the chance to read a translation of the letter. Of all the leaders of the world he scares me the most. He gets his orders from Allah and according to him Allah wants Israel destroyed.

Christopher said...

Yeah. I agree, his letter seems to be a cover. I don't think the two-third's world gives a hoot if he gets nukes... actually let me rephrase that, I don't think they'd feel any happier if he got nukes.
In response to the good Doctor I'd say I still have a slight worse fear of North Korea's Kim Jong-il, as he, to further an analogy, thinks he's Allah. Still both leaders are quite scary.

@Judah:whats wrong if Iran has nukes,you guys also have nukes and both states are very irresponsible and core factors of danger in Middle east

@Dr.Jhon:yes he gets order from Allah like Bush gets order from God.No difference
