Ahmadinejad: letter man

posted at 8:18 pm on July 21, 2006 by Bryan

Back in May, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad sent President Bush a letter. In it, he blamed 9-11 on Bush, invited him to convert to Islam, and asserted Iran’s right to keep on keepin’ on with the nuke program. Following that, Ahmadinejad sent a letter to the Vatican, the contents of which was not released.

This week, Ahmadinejad fired off a note to Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel. Ahmadinejad probably could not have picked a more inappropriate recipient:

A letter from Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to the German chancellor made statements about Israel and the Holocaust that are “not acceptable,” the government said Friday.

“It contains many statements that are not acceptable to us, in particular about Israel, the state of Israel’s right to exist and the Holocaust,” Wilhelm said.

Merkel said in an interview with ZDF television that Israel’s right to exist is a cornerstone of German policy.

“That is repeatedly questioned by him (Ahmadinejad), and at the same time our offer _ an offer that really gives the Iranian people a prospect for the future _ is not mentioned with a single word,” she said.

“That is not right, and so there is no need for a reply,” Merkel said.

He denied the Holocaust in a letter to the chancellor of the country where it occurred. Think about that.

At the time of the Bush and Vatican letters, I was among those who suspected it was a da’wa, a warning to convert to Islam or die. Well, here we are a couple months later and Iran is doing its best to start a major war using Hezbollah as a proxy to attack Israel–which Ahmadinejad believes has no right to exist.

The problem here is how can we find out if this guy is totally nuts or is he pretending to be? In my humble opinion the guy is nuts and we should nuke him. In the worlds opinion I really don’t know. I do know this. This moron is in charge of a rather large country that could go nuts in a mini-second! Scary!

I’m really starting to like Germany again. Ms. Merkel is another great no-nonsense politician, like we are seeing in Tony Snow or John Bolton.

Three cheers for the yellowish, orangeish-red and black!

Ms. Merkel holds a PhD in Physics and currently has a 70+ approval rating in Germany, having had such difficulty to form a government, after a narrow win. Intelligence and political savvy must account for it. She is not the most charismatic personality but comes across as a steady, reliable and realistic leader. And she is our unapologetic friend. All that contrasted to the sissy and opportunistic prima donna, Mr. Schroeder.
