Does Anyone REALLY READ This Crap?

Here is the complete text of the speech Ahmadinejad made to the UN on September 17. Basically, the speech starts as an Islaamic Sunday school class.....let us observe:
(My interjections are in Bold, as well as a few portions of his speech that I wish to comment on.)

"In the Name of the God of Mercy, Compassion, Peace, Freedom and Justice
(insert the Islaamic god here - Allah - not known for mercy, compassion, peace, freedom OR justice.....that is.....unless you, too are Muslim)

"Mr. President, Excellencies, Ladies and Gentlemen, "Today we have gathered here to exchange views about the world, its future and our common responsibilities towards it. It is evident that the future of the world is intertwined with its current state and the prevailing trends, which exhibit signs of hope and despair.
(very general statement - like, no duh)
"On the one hand certain hopes and opportunities exist, and this August Assembly is convened on such hopes. Today human thought reflects outstanding commonalities which provide appropriate grounds to build upon.
(what planet is HE on? Human beings are tearing each other limb from limb every day, everywhere, but we sure do share common thought.....just like we share common thought with this idiot)

With the passing of the era of agnostic philosophies, today humanity is once again joined in celebrating monotheism and belief in the Creator as the originator of existence. This is the common thread which binds us all.
(Once again, what planet is HE on? I don't know anyone, outside of a few fellow believers I communicate with online and a few I work with, that believes in Creation. Western civilization is currently not celebrating monotheism - more like no-theism, actually - and it certainly doesn't believe, in general, in the Creator as the originator of existence.)

"Faith will prove to be the solution to many of today's problems. The Truth will shine the light of faith and ethics on the life of human beings and prevent them from aggression, coercion and injustice and will guide them towards care and compassion for fellow beings.
(OK - here we go. What this lunatic says is true, although he doesn't mean it this way at all. Christ, during the Millenium, will rule with justice for all the human race - He, Christ the Messiah, is the Truth. On the face of it, this statement seems innocuous enough. The Truth - which to most of Western civilization, is an amorphous glow of some faint echo of Judeo-Christian ethic, wrapped in modern "no-God" clothes - is a generic phrase. One must always consider what the SPEAKER means. Ahmadinejad means unequivocally the "truth" of Islaam. Once everyone is Islamic, no problemo, ok? We won't have to kill you because you will be one of us, living in that fantastic and comfortable 7th century style.)

"Another hope is the common global appreciation of the sources of knowledge. Although reason, experience and science are among valuable sources of knowledge, the darkness of the Middle Ages deprived major portions of the Western world of appreciating. This reactionary tendency deprived many of access to various scientific findings and knowledge and led to the exclusion of other sources of knowledge namely God and knowledge based on revelation from the life of human beings in the West; Divine knowledge that was carried and disseminated by such prophets as Noah, Abraham, Moses, Jesus, and Mohammad (peace be upon them).
(OK - let me translate. While the Western world was slogging around in the Dark Ages, the "enlightened" East was experiencing the oh-so-scientific discoveries of Mohammed and his 9 year old bride. He is actually saying that the West fell irrevocably behind in the Middle Ages and that Islaam is what the West missed out on.)

"Today, agnostic thinking is on the decline and presently humanity is equally enamored with religion knowledge and spirituality. This is an auspicious beginning. Divine prophets teach us about proper regard for the exalted state of human beings on earth.
(Once again - what planet is this guy on?)

"The human being is blessed with dignity, most importantly manifested in being the viceroy of the Almighty on earth. The Almighty placed humans on earth to develop it, institutionalize justice, overcome their egoistic tendencies and praise no lord but the Almighty.
(Note that I highlighted the last phrase. "Almighty" = Allah. Once again, if we're ALL Muslim is what Ahmadinejad means.)

"Faith and good deeds can bring deliverance and the good life even in this world. Attaining this depends on human will, that is the will of each and every one of us. We must heed the call of our common primordial nature and achieve the realization of this good life.
(Oh yeah - I can't wait to wear a burqah and let my husband beat me, be unable to go out of my house without a male accompanying me and be barred from education or public life.)

"On the other hand, the prevalence of military domination, increasing poverty, the growing gap between rich and poor countries, violence as a means to solve crises, spread of terrorism, specially state terrorism, existence and proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, the pervasive lack of honesty in interstate relations, and disregard for the equal rights of peoples and nations in international relations constitute some of the challenges and threats.
(You know, he means the US, Israel and Europe, right? Yes, he really does not mean himself and Iran here.)

"Although these challenges are very real, we believe we are not predestined to experience them. Our common will not only can change this course but in fact can lead us to a life filled with hope and prosperity. Divine revelation teaches us that "The Almighty changes the fate of no people unless they themselves show a will for change" (Holy Quran, 13:11).
(Hey - how about those Quran passages? Anyone ever figure out what the Quran really is? It's a hodge-podge of 4th to 6th century Jewish and Christian religious writings that were outside of the accepted beliefs of Jewish and Christian thought of the time. And I mean word for word copies from these original sources. In other words, it's "out there" stuff compiled from the existing religions of the time, sort of like grabbing some writings of some way-out Christian sect of today and mixing it well with New Age writings and making a new religious book and religion out of that. The Quran contains word for word copies of Jewish Talmudic writings. So much for Mohammed's supposed vision of an angel that told him what to write.)

"How can we influence the future of the world? When and how will peace, tranquility and well-being for all come about? These are the fundamental questions before us.

"We believe that a sustainable order, nurturing and flourishing peace and tranquility, can only be realized on the two pillars of justice and spirituality. The more human society departs from justice and spirituality, the greater insecurity it will face, so much so that a relatively small crisis, such as a natural disaster, leads to various abnormalities and inhuman behavior.
(Hey - correct me if I'm wrong, but when there is a natural disaster anywhere in the world, including Iran with it's many terrible earthquakes, the US is the first one there with tons of aid of all kinds - medicine and the doctors to prescribe it, food, supplies - you name it. We - the US - pour it on. That doesn't sound like inhuman behavior to me.)

"Unfortunately, the world is rife with discrimination and poverty. Discrimination produces hatred, war and terrorism. They all share the common root of lack of spirituality coupled with injustice. Justice is about equal rights, the correct distribution of resources in the territories of different states, the equality of all before the law and respect for international agreements.
(Gee - you mean discrimination like hatred of the Jews? Nah - probably not.)

"Justice recognizes the right of every one to tranquility, peace and a dignified life. Justice rejects intimidation and double standards. As the eminent daughter of the Prophet of Islam has said, "justice brings tranquility and harmony to our hearts."

"Today, the world is longing for the establishment of such justice. If humanity heeds the call of its primordial nature with firm resolve, justice will emerge. This is what the Almighty has promised and all people of good will from all religions are waiting for. If the prevailing discourse of global relations becomes one of justice and spirituality, then durable peace will be guaranteed.
(Translation - if everyone becomes Muslim, then "justice" will prevail.)

"Conversely, if international relations are defined without justice and spirituality and void of moral considerations, then the mechanisms for promoting confidence and peace will remain insufficient and ineffective.
(Translation - if everyone doesn't become Muslim, then jihad will prevail.)

"If some, relying on their superior military and economic might, attempt to expand their rights and privileges, they will be performing a great disservice to the cause of peace and in fact will fuel the arms race and spread insecurity, fear and deception. If global trends continue to serve the interests of small influential groups, even the interests of the citizens of powerful countries will be jeopardized, as was seen in the recent crises and the even natural disaster such as the recent tragic hurricane.

"Today, my nation calls on other nations and governments to "move forward to a durable tranquility and peace based on justice and spirituality."
(Everybody become Muslim, or else.)

"Mr. President, Excellencies, Ladies and Gentlemen,
"The Islamic Republic of Iran is born out of a movement, based on the pure primordial nature of a people who rose up to regain their dignity esteem and human rights. The Islamic Revolution toppled a regime, which had been put in place through a coup, and supported by those who claim to be advocates of democracy and human rights, thwarted the aspirations of the nation for development and progress for 25 years through intimidation and torture of the populace and submission and subservience to outsiders.
(Regime = Shah. Advocates of democracy = US/Israel. Outsiders = US/Israel. The whole first sentence = we made everyone become fundamentalist Islaamic in Iran. Anyone of any other religion was immediately in danger for his life and property.)

"The Islamic Republic of Iran is the manifestation of true democracy in the region. The discourse of the Iranian nation is focused on respect for the rights of human beings and a quest for tranquillity, peace, justice and development for all through monotheism.
(OK - they say that evil people always tell you what they really mean, if you listen. Hitler did. He told the world what he expected to accomplish, and the world proceeded to be appalled and shocked at every move, just the same. Here, Ahmadinejad says in the last sentence exactly what he means - the world will achieve justice and peace only when everyone is Islaamic. Monotheism = Islaam.)

"For 8 years, Saddam's regime imposed a massive war of aggression and occupation on my people. It employed the most heinous weapons of mass destruction, including chemical weapons against Iranians and Iraqis alike.
(Too bad they didn't wipe each other out in the process. It would have saved us a lot of trouble.)

Who, in fact, armed Saddam with these weapons? What was the reaction of those who now claim to fight against WMDs regarding the use of chemical weapons back then? The world is witness to the fact that the Islamic Republic of Iran, because of its humanitarian principles, even during the most testing of times and when it was sustaining the highest number of casualties, never allowed itself to use such weapons.

"Thousands of nuclear warheads that are stockpiled in various locations coupled with programs to further develop these inhuman weapons have created a new atmosphere of repression and the rule of the machines of war, threatening the international community and even the citizens of the countries that possess them.

"Ironically, those who have actually used nuclear weapons, continue to produce, stockpile and extensively test such weapons, have used depleted uranium bombs and bullets against tens and perhaps hundreds of thousands of Iraqis, Kuwaitis, and even their own soldiers and those of their allies, afflicting them with incurable diseases, blatantly violate their obligations under the NPT, have refrained from signing the CTBT and have armed the Zionist occupation regime with WMDs, are not only refusing to remedy their past deeds, but in clear breech of the NPT, are trying to prevent other countries from acquiring the technology to produce peaceful nuclear energy.
(Since Ahmadinejad is talking about the US, when exactly did we use atomic weapons in Iraq and Kuwait? Again, what planet is he on? Note Israel = Zionist occupation forces.)

"All these problems emanate from the fact that justice and spirituality are missing in the way powerful governments conduct their affairs with other nations.

"After September 11, a particular radical group was accused of terrorist activities -- although it was never explained how such huge intelligence gathering and security organizations failed to prevent such an extensive and well planned operation.
(Radical group = Al Qaeda. Huge intelligence gathering....failed to prevent = thanks, President Bubba)

"Why powers that, not so long ago, were supporting the activities of such groups in Afghanistan and thus portraying themselves as supporters of human rights and the Afghan people have over night turned into their most fierce critic?
(Could be because those we supported against Russia then turned and became our enemies.)

"Are we to believe that their benefactors, i.e. the very same hegemonic powers have lost control? "If the answer is yes, would it not be better for those powers to adopt an honest and transparent approach to the international community, provide precise information about the main elements and their arms and financial support system, and accept responsibility for their inhuman actions against nations and countries, and thereby assist peoples and nations to correctly, wisely and sincerely fight the roots of terrorism.
(Say what? Give you precise information about what? And there's that word, "inhuman" again. I guess supporting the world financially is inhuman, giving aid wherever it is needed at a moment's notice is inhuman. If Admadinejad defined what he means by "human", I think it would be pretty scary, involving mullahs, burqas, men with goats, etc.)

"We must endeavor to achieve sustainable tranquility and peace based on justice and spirituality.
(Spirituality = Islaam and don't forget it)

"Mr. President, Excellencies, Ladies and Gentlemen,
"Terrorism and WMDs are two major threats before the international community. The Islamic Republic of Iran, as one of the main victims of terrorism and chemical weapons, fully appreciates the difficulties that lie ahead in the road to combat these menaces.

"Today, the most serious challenge is that the culprits are arrogating to themselves the role of the prosecutor. Even more dangerous is that certain parties relying on their power and wealth try to impose a climate of intimidation and injustice over the world make bullying, while through their huge media resources portray themselves as defenders of freedom, democracy and human rights.
(I love the way evil people turn the truth right on it's head. The good becomes the bad, and the bad becomes the good, willy nilly.)

"People around the world are fully aware of what is happening in the occupied Palestine. Women and children are being murdered and adolescents taken prisoner. Houses are being demolished and farms burnt down. Yet, when the people of Palestine resist these conditions, they are accused of terrorism. At the same time, the occupier, which does not abide by any principles and terror is part of its pronounced and routine policy enjoys the support of the previously mentioned governments. Let me be blunter. State terrorism is being supported by those who claim to fight terrorism.
(Sure - Israel is always blowing people up, always strapping bombs on their children and parading them in the streets.....uh, - that would be the so-called "Palestinians", which really aren't Palestinians, since there is no such thing.)

"How can one talk about human rights and at the same time blatantly deny many the inalienable right to have access to science and technology with applications in medicine, industry and energy and through force and intimidation hinder their progress and development? "Can nations be deprived of scientific and technological progress through the threat of use of force and based on mere allegations of possibility of military diversion?
(Right here Ahmadinejad is saying that he wants nuclear capability for medical, (what - to give everyone radiation poisoning that isn't Muslim?) industrial and energy purposes. Yeah, right.)

We believe that all countries and nations are entitled to technological and scientific advancement in all fields, particularly the peaceful technology to produce nuclear fuel. Such access cannot be restricted to a few, depriving most nations and by establishing economic monopolies, use them as an instrument to expand their domination.
(Translation - "I just wanna have nuclear capability for energy needs.....oh and to blow up the world, especially Israel, and make everybody Muslim")

"We have gathered here to defend human rights in accordance with Charter of UN and prevent certain powers from claiming that "some countries have more rights "or that" some countries do not have the right to enjoy their legitimate rights". "We must not, at the beginning of the 21st century, revert to the logic of the dark ages and once again try to deny societies access to scientific and technological advances.
(Now wait a minute. Who came up with this scientific and technological advance? Not Iran. Iran didn't win WWII for the world. So why do they have a "right" to nuclear technology???)

"Mr. President, Excellencies, Ladies and Gentlemen,
"The UN must be the symbol of democracy and the equal rights of nations. If we talk about the equal rights of nations in political forums, we must talk of the same concept in this forum as well.

"Similarly, if we talk about the right of sovereignty, then all nations must be allowed to exercise their rights on an equal footing and in a democratic process.

"The UN can be the standard bearer of democracy in the world, when it, itself, is a manifestation of democratic process. I reiterate that durable tranquility and peace can only be built on justice and spirituality.
(Translation - everyone should have nuclear weapons everywhere, no matter who they are, especially me. And have I mentioned that everyone MUST be Muslim?)

"Mr. President, Excellencies, Ladies and Gentlemen,
"The Islamic Republic of Iran is a symbol of true democracy. All officials including the Leader, President, members of the Islamic Consultative Assembly, city and village councils are elected through the vote of the citizens. The Islamic Republic of Iran has held 27 national elections in 27 years. This showcases a vibrant and dynamic society in which people widely participate in the political life.
(Um....the women don't vote. So much for "vote of the citizens". I guess women aren't citizens, maybe they're more like goats in Iran. Correct me if I'm wrong, but if you don't vote for Ahmadinejad, you're dead, right? So, like, how is that vibrant and of the citizens???)

"Because of its key importance and influence in the important and strategic Middle East region, the Islamic Republic of Iran is committed to contribute actively to the promotion of peace and stability in the region.

"Saddam, Taliban regimes were both the products of foreign powers. The people of Afghanistan and Iraq know very well who supported these two regimes.

"Today, to establish peace and security in the region, foreign occupation forces must leave and completely hand over the political and economic sovereignty of these two countries to their peoples.

"The Islamic Republic of Iran will continue to provide full and comprehensive support to the people of Iraq and Afghanistan and their elected governments, and will actively help them in the establishment of order and security. My country will continue and expand its sincere cooperation and interaction with them.
(Iran will support, but the US isn't supposed to? Interesting - nothing like a double standard.)

"In Palestine, a durable peace will be possible through justice, an end to discrimination and the occupation of Palestinian land, the return of all Palestinian refugees, and the establishment of a democratic Palestinian state with Al-Quds Al-Sharif as its capital.
(Translation - no Jews left in Israel. Anybody recognize what city "Al-Quds Al-Sharif" is? I've never heard of it - and yes, I know he means Jerusalem.)

"Mr. President, Excellencies, Ladies and Gentlemen,
"Today, more than ever, nations need constructive, positive and honest cooperation and interaction in order to enjoy a dignified, tranquil and peaceful life based on justice and spirituality. Let us enter into a collective covenant to realize this legitimate aspiration of our nations.
(There's that "justice and spirituality" again. Just like Hitler, he is telling us what he intends to happen. The whole world will be Muslim, and he will assist that process in any way he can.)

"Here, I would like to briefly talk about the approach and initiative of the Islamic Republic of Iran on the nuclear issue. Nuclear weapons and their proliferation, and attempts to impose an apartheid regime on access to peaceful nuclear energy, are two major threats, challenging international tranquility and peace.

"Keeping in mind that in past years no serious efforts complimented by practical mechanisms -- have been made to move towards full disarmament and more specifically implement the decisions and outcomes of the NPT Review Conferences of 1995 and 2000, I suggest that the General Assembly, as the most inclusive UN organ, mandate an ad-hoc committee to compile and submit a comprehensive report on possible practical mechanisms and strategies for complete disarmament.
("Complete disarmament" - why do we need to disarm if you only want nuclear power for energy? Why does our nuclear capability threaten you?)

"This Committee should also be asked to investigate as to how contrary to the NPT -- material, technology and equipment for nuclear weapons were transferred to the Zionist regime, and to propose practical measures for the establishment of a nuclear-weapons-free zone in the Middle East.
(This is exactly what Joel C. Rosenberg writes in one of his fiction books - that the leader of Iran speaks to the UN and demands that Israel disarm nuclearly (is that a word?)

"Some powerful states practice a discriminatory approach against access of NPT members to material, equipment, and peaceful nuclear technology, and by doing so, intend to impose a nuclear apartheid.

"We are concerned that once certain powerful states completely control nuclear energy resources and technology, they will deny access to and thus deepen the divide between powerful countries and the rest of the international community. When that happens, we will be divided into light and dark countries.
(Interesting choice of words - light and dark, eh?)

"Regrettably, in the past 30 years, no effective measure has been implemented to facilitate the exercise of the legally recognized right of NPT state-parties to have access to and use peaceful nuclear energy in accordance with article IV. Therefore, the General Assembly should ask the IAEA in accordance with article 2 of its Statute to report on violations by specific countries that have hindered the implementation of the above article and also produce practical strategies for its renewed implementation.

"What needs our particular attention is the fact that peaceful use of nuclear energy without possession of nuclear fuel cycle is an empty proposition. Nuclear power plants can indeed lead to total dependence of countries and peoples if they need to rely for their fuel on coercive powers, who do not refrain from any measure in furtherance of their interests.

No popularly elected and responsible government can consider such a situation in the interest of its people. The history of dependence on oil in oil rich countries under domination is an experiment that no independent country is willing to repeat.

"Those hegemonic powers, who consider scientific and technological progress of independent and free nations as a challenge to their monopoly on these important instruments of power and who do not want to see such achievements in other countries, have misrepresented Iran's healthy and fully safeguarded technological endeavors in the nuclear field as pursuit of nuclear weapons. This is nothing but a propaganda ploy.

The Islamic Republic of Iran is presenting in good faith its proposal for constructive interaction and a just dialogue.

"However, if some try to impose their will on the Iranian people through resort to a language of force and threat with Iran, we will reconsider our entire approach to the nuclear issue.

"Allow me, as the elected President of the Iranian people, to outline the other main elements of my country's initiative regarding the nuclear issue:

"1. The Islamic Republic of Iran reiterates its previously and repeatedly declared position that in accordance with our religious principles, pursuit of nuclear weapons is prohibited.
(Say what? Where in the Quran does it say NOT to use weapons against anyone. The Quran is decidedly violent against non-Muslims. Mohammed didn't know about nuclear weapons. Imagine if he did?)

"2. The Islamic Republic of Iran believes that it is necessary to revitalize the NPT and create the above-mentioned ad-hoc committee so that it can combat nuclear weapons and abolish the apartheid in peaceful nuclear technology.

"3. Technically, the fuel cycle of the Islamic Republic of Iran is not different from that of other countries which have peaceful nuclear technology.

"Therefore, as a further confidence building measure and in order to provide the greatest degree of transparency, the Islamic Republic of Iran is prepared to engage in serious partnership with private and public sectors of other countries in the implementation of uranium enrichment program in Iran. This represents the most far reaching step, outside all requirements of the NPT, being proposed by Iran as a further confidence building measure.

"4. In keeping with Iran's inalienable right to have access to a nuclear fuel cycle, continued interaction and technical and legal cooperation with the IAEA will be the centerpiece of our nuclear policy.

"Initiation and continuation of negotiations with other countries will be carried out in the context of Iran's interaction with the Agency.

"With this in mind, I have directed the relevant Iranian officials to compile the legal and technical details of Iran's nuclear approach, based on the following considerations:

"4.1. International precedence tells us that nuclear fuel-delivery contracts are unreliable and no legally binding international document or instrument exists to guarantee the delivery of nuclear fuel.

"On many occasions such bilateral contracts stopped altogether for political reasons. Therefore, the Islamic Republic of Iran, in its pursuit of peaceful nuclear technology, considers it within its legitimate rights to receive objective guarantees for uranium enrichment in the nuclear fuel cycle.

"4.2. In its negotiations with the EU3, Iran has tried in earnest to prove the solid and rightful foundations of its nuclear activity in the context of the NPT, and to establish mutual trust. The selection of our negotiating partners and the continuation of negotiations with the EU3 will be commensurate with the requirements of our cooperation with the Agency regarding non-diversion of the process of uranium enrichment to non-peaceful purposes in the framework of the provisions of the NPT.

In this context, several proposals have been presented which can be considered in the context of negotiations. The Islamic Republic of Iran appreciates the positive contribution of South Africa and H.E. President Mbeki personally in the resolution of the nuclear issue and cognizant of South Africa's active role in the IAEA Board of Governors would welcome its active participation in the negotiations.

"4.3. The discriminatory approaches regarding the NPT that focuses on the obligations of state-parties and disregards their rights under the Treaty should be discontinued.

"As the President of the Islamic Republic of Iran, I assure you that my country will use everything in its power to contribute to global tranquility and peace based on the two maxims of spirituality and justice as well as the equal rights of all peoples and nations.
(BINGO!! There it is, folks!! Translation - Iran will use everything in it's power to make sure the whole world is Muslim - it's right there in black and white.)

My country will interact and cooperate constructively with the international community to face the challenges before us.

"Dear Friends and Colleagues,
"From the beginning of time, humanity has longed for the day when justice, peace, equality and compassion envelop the world. All of us can contribute to the establishment of such a world. When that day comes, the ultimate promise of all Divine religions will be fulfilled with the emergence of a perfect human being who is heir to all prophets and pious men. He will lead the world to justice and absolute peace.
(There's that 12th Imam again. If only Admadinejad knew he was speaking the truth - but it isn't the 12th Imam that will bring this justice for humanity. More like the 12th Imam is the Antichrist - and the Lord Jesus Christ is the Messiah who will rule in justice.)

"O mighty Lord, I pray to you to hasten the emergence of your last repository, the promised one, that perfect and pure human being, the one that will fill this world with justice and peace.
(I second that wish, but in my own words - may the Lord Jesus Christ come quickly.....this planet is nuts!!)

The irony of his speech is that everything he aims at us is in truth the reality of his own world with the axioms by which all of his ilk live. Moslems are being misled by people such as this president who I believe is evil. When evil is presented, it is never presented as itself, but rather is all dressed up in pleasing camouflage designed to catch the unsuspecting and the ignorantly naive - more like the proverbial moth who accidently flies into the spider web or burns itself on the hot light. Reading this kind of crap really blows my mind that anyone with a handful of brain cells and a memory could possibly give this halucination more than a dismissing glance.
