“The most important thing that I can convey about Iran in general – my most memorable reaction in retrospect – is this simple concept: Americans need to ignore anything and everything they hear about modern-day Iran, its leader, its culture, and its people from the mass media in America,” Michael Collins Piper, American author and correspondent for American Free Press, January 7, 2007.
In April 2007 – When the 15 detained British marines and sailors were released safely by the Islamic regime in Tehran – Israeli-born Jewish writer, bloger and jazz-player, Gilad Atzmon wrote:
“The battle between Ahmadinejad and Blair is not a political or diplomatic one, it is not about points. It is actually a clash between civilizations, a fight between humanism and cold pragmatism. As it emerges, in this battle, it is Ahmadinejad rather than Blair who reminds us where goodness rests. Seemingly, a man who has been repeatedly presented by our deluded Western media as a ‘radical’, ‘fundamentalist’ and ‘Islamofascist’ has proved beyond doubt that it is actually him who knows what forgiveness and grace are all about, It was Ahmadinejad who has pardoned the enemy, it was Ahmadinejad that evoked some prospects of a peaceful future“.
In September 2009 – famed American writer and blogger, John Kaminiski, wrote in The beautiful Iranians:
“I wish we had a president as decent as Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the current and outspoken president of Iran. I mean, just compare the two men as human beings. Mr. Ahmadinejad seems like a decent guy from the neighborhood, trying to tell the truth while being trampled by the demonic Jewish spin machine. And here is George W. Bush (interchangeable with Barack Obama, as have been all American presidents since U.S. Grant), revealing himself to the world as a lying, pathological killer. Hey, which one would you choose?”
Recently, the young Iranian author and writer, Kourosh Ziabari, interviewed the so-called ‘Holocaust denier’, Australian-German philosopher, Dr. Fredrick Toben, who said: “The only freedom we have in the West is the freedom to go shopping“.
Since 1999, Dr. Toben has visited Islamic Republic several times for his research work. Below is a summary of Dr. Toben’s interview:
Watching Iranian politics of the past decade, I would think the Persians invented the chess game, something forgotten by the USA that attempts to stop Iranian aspirations for nuclear energy – something that is a natural part of development from oil-based industry to nuclear-electromagnetic industry.
The Iranian people are idealists and this brings them closer to the German mindset that is also idealistic as opposed to the materialistic-based Anglo-American-Zionist international predatory financial mindset, which is currently driving world politics through incessant wars for material resources.
Iranians still operate on the generational imperative: if young people have personal problems, which is a normal part of growing up, they can consult with an uncle, an aunt, a cousin, a grandparent, etc. In the west they go to a psychiatrist or psychologist and pay a stranger money for listening to their problems.
Iranians should not worry about what others in the world think of them because that in some sense is a schoolboy reaction, as Arthur Schopenhauer stated: If an enemy criticizes me, I go and see my friends. Iranian politics does have friends and individual Iranians do have friends in the entire world.
When Iranians living abroad get older, they find the materialism superficial and not satisfying their spiritual needs that cannot be satisfied through consumer goods – and alcohol and other drugs can only block out this spiritual need. It is a problem in the west because the secular nature of the consumer society conflicts with Islam because this religion is a comprehensive religion offering a realistic and factual worldview that satisfies basic and spiritual needs.
The nuclear development issue is merely highlighting the western world’s hypocrisy in this matter, especially because the Zionist regime in Israel has a highly developed program of constructing especially mini-nuclear weapons that have been used in a number of ‘false-flag’ operations around the world.
Iran has been successful in its endeavors and now has also brought Turkey on-side, thereby swinging it away from Europe. But the largest problem is faced with the existence of the Zionist military state of Israel that seeks to dominate the Middle East without any dissent. Here Iran can make the Middle East a safe haven by working towards the dismantling of this racist state – and if it does not succeed, then the Middle East will be dominated by Jewish interests – and such interests are based on TALMUD values, and that is a horrifying prospect for all peoples.
Iranian diplomacy is delicate and so Iran has many friends in the world – more than Israel has!
Holy Qur’an can easily stand against the opinions expressed in psychology texts, hermeneutics, etc.
