Ahmadinejad wanted to meet Michael Moore

posted at 3:23 pm on September 28, 2006 by Allahpundit

According to the man who served as his translator for the UN speech, Hooman Majd.

Recognize that name, by the way? You should.

And so the circle is complete.

Majd says he got the job in part because his “credentials” showed him to be “an apparently trustworthy Iranian.” No kidding.

When I say it’s worth reading this one in full, I mean it. The account of 500 filthy, bottom-feeding fundamentalists meeting in the most cosmopolitan city in the world is stomach-turning. But here’s the can’t-miss. Imagine the propaganda value we could have wrung from this:

The following morning, Mr. Ahmadinejad held a 7:30 a.m. breakfast meeting, again at his hotel, with American academics and journalists. Earlier, he had expressed some interest in having Michael Moore attend, and although attempts were made to reach him (even by myself, since I was asked), they were unsuccessful.

More:

“Let me explain a few points,” Mr. Ahmadinejad continued. “One gentleman said the situation between America and Iran has gotten worse. No. It’s not worse than last year; it’s better. Better.

“Last year,” he said, “we were under serious threats—military threats. Today, at the very worst, it’s economic threats, and even that—well, I don’t really want to say, but for those who would like to pursue them, the situation is not conducive …. Even though there are those in America who would like to put pressure on Iran, they won’t be able to. We’ve really progressed…”

President Ahmadinejad, apparently satisfied that he had convinced everyone that Iran was strong, moved on to the question of Iran’s nuclear program. “If, God forbid—God forbid—we budge on this issue, they’ll next say, ‘You have to give up your chemistry departments in your universities, and your physics departments too.’ Then even the medical schools.” The president’s tone wasn’t bombastic; if anything, it was very matter-of-fact. “It’s clear that they don’t want us to progress,” he said. “Of course, not all Americans—Americans are good people.

Two thousand Zionists want to rule the world. You can do it elsewhere,” he said, as if speaking directly to the mysterious 2,000, “but not in Iran. It’s impossible—it’s not doable.”

Here’s the all-too-revealing conclusion: “The Iranians streamed out onto Sixth Avenue after an evening of celebrating Iran, its president and their own Iranian-ness, New Yorkers once again. Until another visit from Mr. Ahmadinejad, that is.”

Jalal Talabani told a reporter today the real reason he wants U.S. troops in Iraq. Hint: it has nothing to do with Al Qaeda.

Update: Who leveled this none-too-veiled criticism at Iran yesterday at the UN?

The ideology of power can go so far as to regard the possession of nuclear weapons as an element of national pride, and it does not exclude the outrageous possibility of employing nuclear weapons against its adversaries.

The answer will perhaps surprise you. Or perhaps not.

I bet President Tom had a script he wanted to pitch!

Great minds think alike.

He was busy eating…

I heard president Tom’s script ideas were leaked:

“Bowling for Camelbine”

“Faroukenheit 911″

BirdEye on September 28, 2006 at 4:07 PM

Let’s not forget that Fahrenheit 9/11 was a big hit with Hezbollah.

CP on September 28, 2006 at 4:15 PM

i’m sure that Moore will come out of hiding come time for the November elections to spew his hatred for this country & the republicans.

Starblazer on September 28, 2006 at 4:34 PM

Did he request Barbra to serenade? Anyways, I thought Michael Moore was on a fast with La Sheehan?

SouthernGent on September 28, 2006 at 4:35 PM

I dont know whether to laugh or cry but it confirms what I do know about CNN.
They will do ANYTHING (think Tom Jordan’s confessions) to serve their own interests. Wonder if Anderson Cooper. MR INTEGRITY..complained about having to lob a suckup question? Doubt it.

I thought he wanted to meat him.

“Verrücktenheit 9/06″

Michael Moore’s homeowners association probably doesn’t allow foreign nationals within his beautiful gated community.

Hey Mikey, pop quiz asshole: You got a muslim holy warrior with a knife at your throat … what do you do?

Tony737 on September 28, 2006 at 5:39 PM

Answer: Plead that your grotesquely-bloated physique is NOT the result of American excess and freedom. Rather, that it’s a glandular problem, and that you’re just big-boned. That will change said jihadi’s mind.

No pork products for muslims… ;)

If Michael Moore, Ahmadinejad, and that uber-narcissistic dude Dean Esmay all had profiles on eHarmony, it would be a ménage à trois.

SilverStar830 on September 28, 2006 at 8:35 PM

MICHAEL MOORE: Put the MAD in Ahmadinejad.

Dr. Charles G. Waugh on September 28, 2006 at 11:26 PM

I’ll chip in on a one-way ticket for Moore to Iran!!

Texas Gal on September 29, 2006 at 12:10 AM

Moore’s response:

C’mere! I wancha ya in mah belly!!!

profitsbeard on September 29, 2006 at 1:40 AM

And so the circle is complete.

I don’t follow the circle. Somebody invites him to a meeting and… what? That makes him a supporter of terrorism? Is that the intended flow?

IRAN’S AHMADINEJAD =’s Insane jihad drama.

I find the most interesting aspect of this post the final Update.

The Holy See much to my astonishment is doing the job globally that the ACLU is purported to do in this country. The long term outcomes are yet to be seen. I for one am pulling up a seat this could get entertaining!
