Quote Of The Week

Christians throughout the world celebrated Christmas this past week. It appears not everyone was on board with the celebrations though.

Iran's President and whackjob-in-chief, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, was invited to appear on the BBC's Channel 4 for an "alternative Christmas Day message". Story here.

‘If Christ were on earth today, undoubtedly He would stand with the people in opposition to bullying, ill-tempered and expansionist powers.

‘If Christ were on earth today, undoubtedly He would hoist the banner of justice and love for humanity to oppose warmongers, occupiers, terrorists and bullies the world over.’

This is a curious set of quotes coming from an even more curious choice to deliver them. This is a man who denies the Holocaust, has spewed hatred about Jewish people and calls for their deaths, and is the head of a brutal and oppressive regime that terrorizes it's own people and actively supports terrorism worldwide both in principle and financially.

The Mail summed up the irony nicely though.

Earlier this year Ahmadinejad said that ‘Israel should be wiped off the planet’.

In the past week, nine people, including one woman, have been hanged according to Iran’s state owned newspaper.

Israeli ambassador Ron Prosor said: ‘In Iran, converts to Christianity face the death penalty. It is perverse that this despot is allowed to speculate on the views of Jesus, while his government leads Christ’s followers to the gallows.’

This is the quote of the week so I will not go on a rant about the ignorance of the BBC having this monster on TV to further spread his message of hate, they are already getting heat from within the country. I also will not mention how insulting this was to not only put him on on Christmas day but opposite the traditional annual Christmas message of Queen Elizabeth II.

For his continuing message of hate I give Mr. Ahmadinejad, roadkill.

Millions of Britons were at first frightened, when they confused Iran's crazy leader with a Dalek.

(You know, those scary robots on "Doctor Who")

My favorite part about this post is that you put it under the "insanity" tag. I've never seen anyone with an insanity tag :).

i'm sure he had a wide approving audience of his Christmas message at Columbia U.

Andrew Allison said...

I don't know who he thinks he is conning. He is, though, a very intelligent and dangerous man.

Somebody should offer Mahmoud a nice steaming cup of STFU.

Imagine even airing a guy who'd push for the end of a COUNTRY?

I keep wondering how much Arab money owns the media. How the heck MUCH? Why else would they do this? Even the liberal press can't be THIS heartless, uninformed and uncaring.

OH, ya.. yes they can.

I remember Larry King sucking up to Ahmedinejad... "gee, you don't LOOK old enough to have grown kids..giggle giggle". Unreal ...
The answer, of course, would be "Yes, Larry, and I've raised them to make sure there won't be any of your type, those Jews, left in the world very soon! giggle giggle"


But, you know what? What would WE do had this happened here?

Nothing but type our indignant fingers to the bone, right? BIG WHOOP! (i hate to sound so down, but..this was QUITE a story to me and it's upsetting on so many levels, isn't it?)

Mr. Prosor succinctly said the obvious.

"Wait a minute... This isn't Dr. Who? WTF is this?"

Chuck said...

Aaron, sorry, I haven't caught Dr. Who. We like Torchwood, and I think it's similar. Funny though, I would think he scared the Hell out of a lot of people

Christopher, thanks, seemed to fit

Stormin, agreed, although Columbia is not likely the only college

Andrew, thanks for stopping by, like your blog. Agreed on both points, he is dangerous and intelligent.

Larry, I've always said if he wanted a nuclear bomb so bad, we should send him one :)

Z, I picked up on your disapproval over at your blog. You would like to hope this would be unthinkable here but could we say that maybe MSNBC wouldn't do this? Also, there was no real condemnation here for it.

Brooke, the Ambassador was dead on

What that POS said doesn't surprise me in the least. What's worrying is that i'm not surprised that nest of leftist vipers at the BBC allowed him the opportunity to say it.

I second your road-kill motion to him and suggest that it also be extended to those treacherous vermin at the BBC.

Folks, the enemy fighting us is not just radical islam and the jihadists plotting death and mayhem to us. I think you know who else i'm talking about.
