I couldn't resist responding to Ahmadinejad's statement "we don't have homosexuals in Iran"!
Read the story of Amir, a gay from Tehran (added 1 Oct 07)
In Iran homosexuality is a taboo - as in most underdeveloped societies particularly where religion still has a tight grip on the social structures - and therefore it should not exist and if it does, it is something like a nasty disease that must be eradicated. It simply is not recognised as a natural phenomenon.
I found it incredible when somebody at the UN put it to the terrorist president that she personally knew three homosexuals in Iran, the geezer asked for their names and addresses!!
Oh yes, they execute homosexuals in Iran and as far as they know there are none left!
However, what is recognised and worse than that not criminal, is pedophilia. There are many known pedophiles in Iran and you will not find one in the Islamic regime's prisons. The Islam is a procurer of pedophilia and most of the Mullahs are known pedophiles. In Islam, a girl who starts her period is considered sexually mature. Some girls in hot countries start their periods as early as seven years young. They are considered sexually mature and ready to bear a child! One of the Islam's prophet Mohammad's wives, Aeshe, was only eight years old when she became Mohammed's wife! So having sex with a female child as young as 7 is legitimate and there is no court in Iran that will punish a man for legally having sex with a girl as young as 7. To make it legal all he has to do is go to a Mullah and pay him a fee to recite a couple of verses from the Quran: that is also referred to as Sigheh. Do you remember Atefah, the 16 year old Iranian girl who was hanged in Iran a few years ago? A 50 year old ex-revolutionary guard had been having sex with her for a number of years before she was arrested at the age of 16. He was a pedophile who should had been send to prison for at least 15 years but received 100 lashes and that punishment was only for having sex without a Mullah's permission.
I am too upset to write more.

On Monday Ahmadinejad, the powerless representative and spokesman of the Islamic regime was invited to the Columbia University to address the students and answer some questions put to him. Lee Bollinger, Columbia’s president, introduced Ahmadinejad to the audience and put some questions to the Mullahs' spokesman about the treatment of women, homosexuals and the hanging of children and some other questions. He then told Ahmadinejad: “Mr. President, you exhibit all the signs of a petty and cruel dictator.”
Lee Bollinger did wrong by providing Ahmadinejad the platform to spew his crazy ideas wrapped up in popular rhetoric of justice, peace and all that and his calling him an uneducated petty dictator does not put that right.
As with most good things, there are a few problems with democracy. In our free and democratic societies, and no matter how advanced and sophisticated as a whole we may be, there are many, millions rather than thousands, citizens who are gullible and vulnerable. These people have a right to vote and they do vote. They are often exploited by the home side politicians but to expose them to a known culprit terrorists such as Ahmadinejad is irresponsible.
Media in our free societies is one of the most important sources of information for the public. The media is the public forum for political, social and economic discussions and discourse. The free media therefore has heavy responsibilities. Some responsibilities are absolute and uncompromising and others are found on a balance. As the media is liable if it disseminates false financial and social information upon which the public rely and thereby suffer loss, so should the media be liable with regards to political misinformation. I do realise this is in fact impossible to enact. As it stands a media outlet could misinform the public about political issues and not be accountable to anyone. Disinformation comes in many shapes and forms. They are often subtle and undetectable and no media would risk losing face by outrightly misinforming its customers. However subtle diversions take place all the time and the public attention is deliberately diverted away from the real issues. A simple diversion from the real issues in hand that should be addressed is not a disinformation per se and perhaps would go totally unnoticed and unchallenged, but is dishonest and misleading in that the public are unable to make informed decisions about what they should think or how they should respond to the situation. Whilst it is the case that there are many points of view about many issues, there is a definite line that should be observed when it comes to the matters that involve the public interests and more importantly, safety and security. This line defines the boundaries within which the media bears its burdens and responsibilities as I mentioned above and all we can do is hope they abide!
On Tuesday, the day after Ahmadinejad had his uneasy reception at the Columbia University, He held a reception and invited over 50 journalists and reporters from the mainstream media to a lavish dinner at a New York hotel. What was the purpose behind it? Why should a president of a regime that is supporting terrorism in the Middle East including insurgents in Afghanistan and Iraq to drive the forces of democracy away, invite 50 of the top American journalists to a dinner party? Apart from food, soft drink and Ahmadinejad smile, what else was on offer?
Ahmadinejad and the Islamic regime need good write ups, or at least diversions of the international focus from their misdeeds. They need the support of the Public in order to advance their agendas. Who can defeat the Bush Administration better than the American people?
Update: 1 Oct 2007
"Painting Iran prez as madman is counterproductive" This is a write up by Sheryl McCarthy. Was she invited to Ahmadinejad's dinner party?! I wonder!
On Wednesday, the day after the lavish dinner at the hotel, Christiane Amanpour interviewed Ahmadinejad and gave him further platform to put right what went wrong at the Columbia University and all that is available on that interview is this. (I cannot add the link but you can check it out on cnn.com)
If the CNN and indeed other media outlets do not like the president of the United States because they support the other party, they should still remember their duties and responsibilities to the people and country and not support or provide platforms to the terrorists to spew their crazy ideas. Remember, gullible's about and don't dance with the terrorists!

Despite all the rhetoric and the impressions he has given, Ahmadinejad does not wish to destroy America in the first instance. Islamists and Mullahs' modus operandi is gentle approach at first, if they fail to convert you they would go away but will return later with a dagger. America is a country that cannot be destroyed. Only fools would believe otherwise. But America can be conquered. Ahmadinejad seeks to conquer America. Mullah Khatami has already done some grand work by spreading some honey on the heads of some Americans. These Americans are those who haven't the slightest clue about what goes on in the world. They are sweet and ignorant with little or no real interest in politics. They have a right to vote and there are millions of them. They vote for you only if they like your face, voice or smile and these sort of things!
Here is a good example of a sweet American. She wants to hear what Ahmadinejad has to say before she can be angry with him as if A is going to say things like "death to America" whilst in America! I ll say no more except: he will not say anything you don't like, dear. These are the Americans, Ahmadinejad is targeting: the sweet simpleton Americans.
It seems that the Islamic regime is always the winner of these occasional PR stints. The mullahs recognise the huge devisions in democratic societies. They are merely taking advantage. The West constantly sets itself back by not being able to consolidate itself on such issues as the one in hand.
It would have been so apt if the organisers of the demonstrations against Ahmadinejad's visit erected large screens showing the public executions of young Iranians and how his Revolutionary Guards and their thugs beat the defenseless young Iranians for committing no offense other than wearing T-shirts and jeans! And how Iranian girls are harassed and arrested for showing a few strands of hair, despite Ahmadinejad playing down (lying through his teeth) (please see previous post) the public concerns and fears that such actions would take place after he became the president and other atrocities committed by the Islamic regime against the Iranians and the roadside bombings that kill Allied solders.

Ahmadinejad lies again - every utterance is a lie :
"We do not need a bomb. We are against a bomb actually," Ahmadinejad told Britain's Channel 4 in an interview.
"There are many reasons that we're against it. In our belief we are against bombs (and) from a political point of view it is not useful," he told the channel through an interpreter.
THE FULL TRANSCRIPT OF THE INTERVIEW HERE
Hey, Channel 4, watch these videos:Ahmadinejad tells Iranians they need not worry about their hair styles and Hijab, because these will not be his government's concerns.
Ahmadinejad's crack-down on hair styles and Hijab:
Q: You started tonight by sending your good wishes to the people of the United Kingdom. Can you reassure British parents and say that no Iranians are involved in the killing of British solders?
A simple answer would have been: No Iranians are involved in the killing of British solders but this is his answer:
A: I tell you and I also tell the good people of England; the people of England saw the good will of the Iranian people regarding the navy personnel. We are deeply sorry about the events in Iraq, we are also sorry about the Iraqi people being killed as well as that your soldiers are being killed.
We think that this war should not exist. There can be friendship and peace - why should there be an occupation in which killings take place? Our message is that of friendship for all - we like all nations we also like all human beings. Whoever is killed we are distressed, we don't rejoice in it because your soldiers are also human beings, poor things, they do not know where they are.
These fifteen English naval personnel they did not even know where they were - why should English youth come to Iraq and be killed - for what reason? The English people should be in their country and serve their own people. We are not happy we would like to have peace and friendship for every one - we have mentioned that we are prepared to help end the war so that there is peace and brotherhood for all.
p.s. Very pleased Americans aren't going to leave Iraq to the Islamic regime.
