I thought you might be interested in seeing some of the email I received in response to last week’s article, “Ahmadinejad’s Letter - Arrogance or Delusion?” where I raised questions on several of the President of Iran’s statements. (see below)
Since my column is published on over 50 sites that we are aware of, there’s no way of knowing where the comments are coming from, nevertheless, they do show some of the thinking that is out there. While I did receive many positive responses to the article, some of these may surprise you such as...
1 - “Israel should be wiped off the map. They took over Palestine illegal, and have been brutally killing Palestinians ever since. The Jews are of the Satanic seed line, and they will be destroyed by God.”
2 - “Hi Sharon Hughes: I believe the 'presumptuous' subject letter alluded to was more of a 'wake-up call' to the American people, calling for us to object to the murderous Bush Cartel Neo-cons. Comments from foreign leaders usually have a dual audience, much in the same way as President Hugo Chavez of Venezuela, who calls it like it is. Of course, those supporting murder, mayhem and wars of attrition, strenuously object to such missives. Personally, I take no affront to those opposing the Moneychangers and their bootlickers, who 'plan and wage unilateral wars of aggression', no matter where they come from. Perpetrators of crimes against humanity always become International targets, eventually. Nueremburg comes to mind, even though those trials were mis-directed.”
3 - I kind of agree with almahajad Dictator?? since when is he a dictator?? Like Hugo Chavez he was elected in a "relatively" fair election. UNLIKE george Bush who was never elected AND WITH THE PATRIOT ACT AND THE MILITARY COMMISIONS ACT REALLY HAS DICTATORIAL POWERS. How much does the CIA pay you to spew probaganda??
4 - I now believe more then ever "Hughes" is a jew surname......
Well, I have to be honest, it’s amazing to me that people think this way, including those in the media, such as Mike Wallace who interviewed Ahmadinejad on 60 Minutes. Here’s some of what he said in a radio interview with Sean Hannity, when Sean brought up the dictator’s repeated calls for wiping Israel off the map:
MW: Yes, he says wipe off the map, and of course I asked him over and over about that. He says in effect, hey, it's perfectly sensible to do...pardon me. It's perfectly sensible for them, and I'm not quoting directly, obviously, because I don't have the translation in front of me, to...for them to...it's perfectly sensible, if there is a Holocaust, and let's buy the fact that there was a Holocaust. Where did the Holocaust take place? Did it take place in an Arab neighborhood? Did it take place in Jerusalem? No. It took place in Germany. Then it seems to me, under those circumstances, take Israel, the Zionist entity, he called it, move it to Germany. Move it to Europe. That's where it happened.
SH: Do you agree with him?
MW: Move it to the United States.
SH: Do you think that's a legitimate argument?
MW: It's an argument. I'm not a commentator. You are.
Wallace also rejected any comparison of Iran’s President to Hitler.
One commentator wrote, “It is apparent that Wallace, for some reason, came under Ahmadinejad's spell. This demonstrates that the Iranian leader is a force to be reckoned with. If he can fool Mike Wallace, perhaps he can deceive U.S. and European diplomats. Perhaps he already has.”I’ve seen this before, when some folks meet, for instance with tyrants like Saddam Hussein, and think they’re nice guys. It’s more than a fog of war, its strong delusion.
