Politics and Economics in Israel

A Statesman Speaks

American President Barrack Obama would like to “engage” in a serious dialogue with Iranian President Mahmud Ahmadiniejad.  Here are just a few quotes from this Iranian “statesman.”  I’m told that in the original Farsi, some of this crap actually rhymes!  Dig it: the man can rap! If he shakes your hand, President Obama, remember to wash it well afterwards.

“Our nation has no problem with other nations, but as far the Zionist regime is concerned, we do not believe in an Israeli government or an Israeli nation.”
Press Conference, Teheran, September 18, 2008

“Those who think they can revive the stinking corpse of the usurping and fake Israeli regime by throwing a birthday party are seriously mistaken.”
Remarks on Israel’s Independence Day, as quoted by Iran’s official IRNA news agency May 8, 2008

“The world powers established this filthy bacteria, the Zionist regime, which is lashing out at the nations in the region like a wild beast. … “[Israel] won support [from the other nations] which created it as a scarecrow, so as to keep the people of this area under control.”
Teheran, February 20, 2008

“With God’s help, the countdown button for the destruction of the Zionist regime has been pushed by the hands of the children of Lebanon and Palestine . . . By God’s will, we will witness the destruction of this regime in the near future.”
Speech, as quoted by the Fars News Agency, June 3, 2007

“Israel must be wiped off the map … The establishment of a Zionist regime was a move by the world oppressor against the Islamic world . . . The skirmishes in the occupied land are part of the war of destiny. The outcome of hundreds of years of war will be defined in Palestinian land.”
October 26, 2005, In an address to 4,000 students at a program titled, ‘The World Without Zionism’

“If you want to have good relations with the Iranian people in the future, you should acknowledge the right and the might of the Iranian people, and you should bow and surrender to the might of the Iranian people. If you do not accept this, the Iranian people will force you to bow and surrender.”
Iranian News Channel on August 15, 2006

“A new Middle East will prevail without the existence of Israel.”
A quoted by Malaysian news agency Bernama website, August 4, 2006

One year of these types of statements should have been enough.  Any public official in a democratic country would have been hounded from office within days of such an outburst!  Why does the West insist on dealing with Third World dictators and tyrants in a “culturally sensitive” manner?  Does this not debase and demean Western culture?  Is getting oil for $10 a barrel less worth selling out 3000 years of art, culture, literature, philosophy and morals?
