Character assassination has always been Zionists’ first and last tool to blackmail or destroy political or social reputation of a person who has the good conscience to criticize Zionists for their crimes against Americans, Palestinians or the rest of the Muslim world – be it Nelson Mandela, Jimmy Carter, Dr. Finkelstein or Dr. Ahmadinejad. Zionists have more than 8,000 fellow Jews on their “Self-Hating Israel-Threatening” list.
“I can understand why a candidate for the highest office (in the US) would have to dissimulate or dissemble. You have to lie to get into office, that’s a given. However, once you get into office, you are either, fearless and true or you are a whore. And if you are fearless and true it will get you shot. That’s the Catch 22. Study your history and see if you can connect the dots on who got shot and why?” – Les Visible in Have Fun Bending Over for the Catch 22, October 22, 2008.
The ordinary citizen in Islamic Iran – and they constitute the majority of population – considered Ahmadinejad to be one of their own. And he pretty much said what was on their minds. Ahmadinejad comes across to the average person in the Republic as honest, modest, and free of artificiality. His body is slim just like theirs; his face is not puffed up with the layers of affluence that come from being a “president”. One could easily confuse Ahmadinejad with any worker or craftsman in a field or in a shop.
The majority of people in Islamic Iran knows Ahmadinejad’s simple lifestyle well. He comes from a blacksmith family in the small town of Aradan – which has about forty families – a place so vague and remote that it barely appears on the map!
Like all country people, Ahmadinejad is very meek and “religious”. He is not known for being ostentations – he is not a man who likes to attract notice and impress others. And during the past four years when all his citizens were watching he was not contaminated by the disease of aristocracy and of the ruling class: vanity. On the people’s watch – during these past four years – he was working long hours (even his adversaries and political enemies confess) 16 to 18 hours a day. He was doing all this to improve the lot of the poor people; he wanted to improve their conditions. His aim was to alleviate their hardships and be their public servant. He raised the minimum wage as well as retirement pensions. Does it come as surprise to anyone that poor people all over the country would vote for him as president for the next four years? Is anyone surprised to see the elites, the upper classes of society, and the power-hungry annoyed by such a humble person and his populist policies?
Unlike his opponent (Mousavi) Ahmadinejad is more closer to Imam Khomeini’s foreign vision of folding back imperialism and zionism. He, like the Imam is not hesitant when it comes to full liberation from the evil schemes of imperialism and Zionism.
“During the first political generation of Islam after the Prophet (pbyh) – there were credentialed Muslims who believed in an Islamic government. Some of them spent their lives fighting for an Islamic government. But they differed on methods and priorities. Some of them wanted an “Arab First” government. Some of them wanted to be relieved of the “global burdens” of an Islamic government; others wanted to get on with life and improve their standard of living. And for 1400 year we have been suffering from that political deviation. President Ahmadinejad brings back to the Muslim voices that were crowded out by nationalism and class interests in the early generation of Islam. A vote for him is not simply a vote for the president of Iran, it’s a vote for Imam Hussein against Yazid, a vote for the Che Guevara against his executioners, a vote for Hugo Chavez against US imperialism, and a vote for the Palestinians against their Zionist murderers…..This should explain why the US was more interested in the elections in Iran than they were in their own. Ahmadinejad’s political enemies, as fervent as their Shi’i rituals are, were they to win would have in their own ways put us back on the slippery slope of the post-khilafah era,” – Abu Dharr, Crescent International, July 2009.
“The American media adheres to no standards and observes no limits in carrying out its function of manipulating public opinion in accordance with the objectives, domestic and foreign, of the American ruling elite. Nothing so clearly demonstrates the decay of American democracy and the “free press” in the United States than the manner in which it lines up behind phony “color revolutions” against regimes deemed inimical to US interests and ignores flagrantly antidemocratic measures by regimes backed by the CIA, the military and State Department,” – Barry Grey in Tehran and Tegucigalpa: A tale of two capitals.
Russian-Israeli writer, Israel Shamir, in his article Iran: All is Well that Ends Well wrote: Ahmadinejad is also popular all over the world as a symbol of the Third World rebellion, on a par with Castro and Chavez. He maintains good relationship with neighbouring Russia and China, even with the US-occupied Iraq and Afghanistan. Ahmadinejad’s lightning visit to Yekaterinburg to the SCO conference in the midst of the upheaval has proved his statesmanship. In his well-received fiery speech he never referred to the crisis back home, and he was congratulated by his peers President Medvedev and President Hu Jintao for his electoral victory. His stalwart anti-Zionist stand endeared him to the Arab neighbours of Iran, even to the annoyance of Arab rulers. His weapons saved Lebanon in 2006 from being devoured by Israel. Sometimes he goes too far, but otherwise, how can he find out how far he can go?
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad (b. 1956) is an Iranian academic with PhD in transporation engineering – which he taught at Science and Technology University. He entered politics and was elected Mayor of Tehran in 2003. On June 24, 2005 he won the election of President of Islamic Republic of Iran on the platform of providing social justice and fight on corruption and poverty.
Like many other Zionist myths – the myth of Wipe Israel off the map attributed to Ahmadinejad – is also entertaining to people with rational thinking. Like the others, it should also be enjoyed without being joining Zionists in their self-denial that the only country which has been wiped off the map in the modern time – is 5,000-year-old Palestine.
