Salaam and hello all!

Some more observations on President Mahmoud Ahmedinejad's Sept.24th visit to Columbia University.

America's amazing bad manners and lack of hospitality was staggering. I marvel at President Ahmedinejad's infinite patience at the hands of a set of rude, calculating and bratty predators.

The media prides upon the "scathing" remarks for Mr. Ahmedinejad by the Columbia University President, Lee Bollinger. Then why on earth did he agree to invite the Iranian President at all? Or was this a set up .. to invite a guest for the purpose of humiliting him? How thoroughly 'civilized.' If I invite a guest to my home, humiliate that person and then exult over the insults I hurled, I would only be exposing the very low stock of my own origin as recently exposed by the "academics" of Columbia University. Thus, Tehran Times reported today that such insults on the Iranian President have "seriously lowered the status of the university."

A brief look at the history of America shows that during the days of the wild wild West, America was infested with many dangerous convicts who were sent to this land from Europe after their death sentences were commuted to permanent exile. America was then the den of uncivilization and violence, and therefore considered the perfect place for 'exporting' criminals. Indeed, habits die hard. Also, as per modern studies, genetics play an important role in determining one's behaviour. History apparently doesn't compliment the ancestry of the American people at large. With such a lineage, what else can one expect from the descendents but a thick, uncouth and impetuous head that can think of nothing beyond killing and destruction.

However, the media manipulation was so desperate that the unreal side of it became just too obvious. The viewers aren't idiots. There were plenty of audience even in a place like Columbia University who liked Mr. Ahmedinejad's honest and cultured speech. The applause was frequent for which the media had no explanation but to be evasive. Each applause was quickly ignored and interpreted as sarcasm by the crowd. The comments on television were only from the extreme right-wingers who were sought and selected carefully for their hardline political views. The performance of the media was truly an insult to the intelligence of viewers around the world! No wonder more and more people are giving up watching television and are instead looking for information from sites like counterpunch and truthout etc.

These were much the same points that had been poking my mind since I saw all this on TV.

Someone asked the Iranian President if there's a punishment for homosexuals in Iran to which the President replied that this problem isn't there in Iran.  His response basically insinuated the rarity of same gender relationships in Iran and the Mulims world compared to North American and Europe where it's very widespread.  And of course, that's absolutely right.  The media tried to portray this as a laughable response.  But you know what?  It was actually the question that was laughable and stupid.  One would certainly expect the 'academics' of Columbia University to ask something more intellectual than that.

Right on cat ..


Besides, I wonder why Pres. Ahmedinejad was not allowed to visit ground zero.  Had he decided not to visit the site on his own, he would have been labelled "insensitive" at the very least.  Apparently it became an embarrassment for America that he did want to visit it .. so he was denied permission.  Reason: nothing.  Just the implementation of the cranky side of America.  In other words, tactics of a dirty game. 

Thanks for the wonderful article you penned brother PT

Probably last but certainly not least ...

Believe it or not, the one category that's even more unconscientious than the hardline Americans are the bulk of the Iranian-American exiles.  Most of them took off to U.S. or Europe soon after the revolution, and some are the later time dissidents who knew their guile as opportunists wouldn't work.  These stinking rich creatures, over fed with tons & tons of ill-gotten wealth from their country are all after money, power and their lost elite status.  They're still dreaming that they will some day overthrow the revolutionists with the help of the superpower and bring back the dark days of the Shah under the rulership of his ever incompetent son, Reza Shah jr.  This lot has treachery written all over them.  They don't care a damn for the common Iranian people.  All they desire are power, luxury on Persian soil, more riches (as if they don't have enough already) and Iran becoming a 51st American state once again. 

People with such wishful ideas deserve to keep fantasizing till Doomsday.  LOL!

Surely Lee Bollinger knew the Iranian President's political views.  He knew that Mr. Ahmedinejad is a man of independent thoughts who believes in speaking his mind and not getting bullied.   So, why did Lee Bollinger invite him in the first place?  Well, of course it was a set up.  If he hadn't inivited him, how would the Zionist scheme of struggling to put words in Mr. Ahmedinejad's mouth be carried out?  Despite all that, Mr. Ahmedinejad kept his cool.  The Iranian President, in keeping with his civilized Persian traditions, knew the importance of not responding in a lowly way to lowly questions put by lowly people.

Though a very simple issue, it seems to take a genius to understand it.  If I insult my guest, that wouldn't hurt my guest one bit.  It would only reveal the yellow streak in me and how small I am.

Most of those Iranian elites who fled the revolution, and those who unsuccessfully tried to switch loyalties from the Shah to the revolutionists are the hallmarks of selfish treachery.  That's a well known fact.  There are exceptions of course.  There are selfless and rational people among them as well.  But I guess it's the majority that carves a trend and moral standard.  Since Iran announced its nuclear program, I observed there were a few small demonstrations in Europe against it.  It was weird to see that in each of those demos (that consisted no more than a couple of hundreds of people), there were no Europeans present at all.  All were Iranian exiles shamelessly exhibiting themselves as traitors.  The mindset of this community in the U.S. is much the same.
