Ahmadinejad: "The Iranian People Will Force You to Bow and Surrender"Topics: Iran
From MEMRI - Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad declares: "The U.S and England Are Not Worthy of Security Council Membership. Those Who Want Good Relations with the Iranian People Should Bow and Surrender to its Right and Might":
[...] Mahmoud Ahmadinejad: When they talk about a "New Middle East," they mean a Middle East that is held captive by America, England, and the Zionist regime. When they talk about a "New Middle East," they do not mean progress, development, independence, or freedom for the countries [of the region]. They oppose independence, freedom, and progress. Look at Iraq, Palestine, Lebanon, and other places. I say to them: The peoples of the region have awakened. It so happens that our peoples are also calling for a New Middle East. The Middle East that our peoples want is a free Middle East, which is not under the control of America and England.See the video from Iranian TV, August 13, 2006 at Little Green Footballs.
[...] Those who were involved in planning this barbaric attack, those who supported this barbaric attack, and those who prevented the cease-fire are accomplices in the crimes of the Zionist regime, and must be placed on trial. To be more specific, America and England purport to support human rights, freedom, and democracy. When a cat's leg is run over by a municipal vehicle in some city, they hold a mourning ceremony. But they had the audacity to postpone the cease-fire for at least three weeks. They explicitly declared that the Zionist regime should be allowed to crush the resistance, and to occupy the land, and that [only] then would there be a cease-fire. I want to declare loud and clear, so that the whole world will hear: These two countries are not worthy of being members of the Security Council.
[...] 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.
3 Questions: How does one "negotiate" with a radical ideologue committed to world domination? How does one even talk with followers of an ideology that are dedicated to world domination and that a guy is going to come out of a well and lead them to the apocolypse? How does one carry out a rational discussion with people that aren't rational?
Perhaps the international community should get rid of the Neville Chamberlans, and figure out the next step. More and more, it looks like there's only going to be one chance to get it right, and whether or not the West chooses to realize that it is in a war with Iran and radical Islam, that's not going to change the fact that Iran and radical Islam are at war with the West, and that they are dead-set on developing or buying nuclear weapons to use against non-Muslims everywhere. Think about Hezbollahs all over the planet with nuclear weapons! The time for a collective wake up is now, later is going to be too late.
