President Obama is at it again this week, sending really warm wishes to Iran and its people on the occasion of their combination spring-New Year holiday, Nowruz. This is the fifth year Obama has extended the holiday hand of friendship to Iran, despite its ongoing nuclear weapons program and deep involvement in widespread terrorist activities.
Here’s last year’s Obama Nowruz message. Scroll down for the full text and video of Obama’s newest Nowruz message, with Persian subtitles.
The Democrat has also gone out of his way to extend public sympathies to Iran on the occasion of natural disasters and invited Iranian diplomats to July 4th celebrations at U.S., embassies. Despite the country’s intimate involvement in terrorism in Iraq and Afghanistan, on the borders of Israel and supplying arms to Syria’s dying regime of Bashir al-Assad.
Obama was also late to offer rhetorical support for Iran’s green attempted democratic revolution in 2009, which was ultimately crushed by government forces. Remember the awful video of Neda, the young Iranian woman shot by government snipers, dying in the street?
Each time Obama has tried friendly, he’s been ignored, denounced or dismissed.
