Ahmadinejad Issues 'Veiled Threat" Against President BushTopics: Iran
... and according to the Supreme Commander of Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps, the Bush Administration and the Israeli security service Mossad of ordering the September 11, 2001 attacks in New York and Washington, DC.
Iranian hard-line President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is continuing to experience grandiose illusions of spirtual significance, this time threatening President Bush with "a bad fate" issued in behalf of the universe:
... Ahmadinejad reiterated a proposal from last month to debate Bush, suggesting on Wednesday that the United Nations would be the ideal venue, his official web site reported.In other words, Ahmadinejad, the man who speaks directly to the Mahdi who lives at the bottom of a well in Jamkaranl, now speaks for the entire universe.
The official Islamic Republic News Agency said Ahmadinejad had warned in the speech to a religious conference that anyone who refused to accept an invitation would suffer a bad fate. It said the statement was a reference to Bush's rejection of an invitation by Ahmadinejad for a televised debate.
The official news agency did not provide any exact quote from Ahmadinejad containing those words, but reported that he said them. It quoted Ahmadinejad directly as saying: "This is not a threat by me. This is a threat by the entire universe. The universal trend is against suppression."
If Ahmadinejad was the only Iranian official that sounded off with bizarre comments, we could chalk it up to one guy's insanity. However, he's not the only one. Looking only at today, take for example what the Supreme Commander of Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps said:
Tehran, Iran, Sep. 06 - The Supreme Commander of Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps accused the Bush Administration and the Israeli security service Mossad of ordering the September 11, 2001 attacks in New York and Washington, DC.More here.
"The events of September 11 were ordered by U.S. [officials] and Mossad so that they could carry out their strategy of pre-emption and warmongering and unipolarisation in order to dominate the Middle East", Major General Yahya Rahim Safavi told military commanders on Tuesday. His comments were reported by the state-run news agency ISNA.
General Safavi said that Iran was the leading force of the "Islamic world". "The geographic heart of the Islamic world is in Mecca and Medina. But, the political heart of the Islamic world is in the Islamic Republic of Iran and the Supreme Leader [Ayatollah Ali Khamenei] is the flag-bearer of the front of Islamic awakening and the fronts of the awakening of third world nations", he said.
He said that Washington had been defeated in its strategy of "attacking Iraq, Afghanistan, and Lebanon" and creating a new order in the Middle East.
And the Left wants the U.S. to negotiate with these people and trust them with nuclear weapons?
