CBS's Mike Wallace has interviewed Iranian President Ahmadinejad for 60 minutes. Wallace was interviewed about the interview on talk-radio by Sean Hannity. In the Hannity interview Wallace corrected the mainstream image of Ahmadinejad and of what the man believes.


USA Today

The 88-year-old Wallace, who is semi-retired, traveled to interview the Iranian president, whom he described as "impressive," "interesting" and "obviously smart as hell."

In an interview with talk-radio host Sean Hannity, Wallace defended Ahmadinejad's actions and statements. In the transcript posted on Radio Blogger, Wallace said the Iranian leader's comments about wiping Israel off the map aren't horrific.

[...]

"Yes, he says wipe off the map, and of course I asked him over and over about that," said Wallace. "He says in effect, hey, it's perfectly sensible to do … pardon me. It's perfectly sensible for them … 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."


Hannity pressed Wallace further by accusing President Ahmadinejad of being anti-semitic.


USA Today

Wallace said Ahmadinejad doesn't like the United States because it is supporting Israel, however, he is not anti-Semitic.

"So you don't think he's an anti-Semite?" said Hannity.

"He himself, an anti-Semite, an anti-Jew ... anti-Jew?" said Wallace.

"Yes," said Hannity.

"No, I don't," said Wallace.

All of which fits the picture of Iran, the nation with the largest population of jewish people in the Middle East outside of Israel. Iran, and it's leader, are not anti-semitic and it's is pure slander to say otherwise. Criticism of Israel and of Zionism is not anti-semitic. Let's hope the mainstream can be freed of its misrepresentations by interviews such as this. Misrepresentations concocted directly by Ahmadinejad's enemies.

The full unedited 90 minute interview will be aired on C-SPAN on the request of President Ahmadinejad.

Ahmadinejad quotes


Holocuast denial


"They have invented a myth that Jews were massacred and place this above God, religions and the prophets."

"We ask the West to remove what they created sixty years ago and if they do not listen to our recommendations, then the Palestinian nation and other nations will eventually do this for them."

"The real Holocaust is what is happening in Palestine where the Zionists avail themselves of the fairy tale of Holocaust as blackmail and justification for killing children and women and making innocent people homeless."

"The West claims that more than six million Jews were killed in World War II and to compensate for that they established and support Israel. If it is true that the Jews were killed in Europe, why should Israel be established in the East, in Palestine?"

"If you have burned the Jews, why don't you give a piece of Europe, the United States, Canada or Alaska to Israel. Our question is, if you have committed this huge crime, why should the innocent nation of Palestine pay for this crime?"
Threats against Israel


"Anybody who recognizes Israel will burn in the fire of the Islamic nation's fury."

"Remove Israel before it is too late and save yourself from the fury of regional nations."

"The skirmishes in the occupied land are part of a war of destiny. The outcome of hundreds of years of war will be defined in Palestinian land. As the Imam said, Israel must be wiped off the map."

"If the West does not support Israel, this regime will be toppled. As it has lost its raison d' tre, Israel will be annihilated."

"Israel is a tyrannical regime that will one day will be destroyed."

"Israel is a rotten, dried tree that will be annihilated in one storm."
Relations with West


"[There is] no significant need for the United States."

"Iranians possess delicate characteristics. They introduce their merits, which are extremely attractive to whole the world."

"We are ready to hold dialogue with all countries of the world except for the Israeli regime."

"Those who insulted the prophet should know that you cannot obscure the sun with a handful of dust. The dust will just get back and blind your own eyes."

"We increasingly see that people around the world are flocking towards a main focal point - that is the Almighty God. My question for you is, 'Do you not want to join them?'"

"There are no limits to our dialogue."

"Do you think you are dealing with a 4-year-old child to whom you can give some walnuts and chocolates and get gold from him?"
Conspiracy theory


"Could [9/11] be planned and executed without coordination with intelligence and security services - or their extensive infiltration? Of course this is just an educated guess. Why have the various aspects of the attacks been kept secret? Why are we not told who botched their responsibilities? And, why aren't those responsible and the guilty parties identified and put on trial?"
Freedom of speech


"We believe that accurate dissemination of news and information is necessary for political growth and awareness as well as effective interaction among nations in today's world.

Exactly! The real problem is the zionist government, not the jews. Zionists like they are acting NOW are extremists, racists and they think they are superior to humanity. The zionism at his base is good but not how it is applied, like communism or capitalism. He never said that he wanted to wipe out jews, he wanted to wipe out the zionist regime and i agree with that.

And for the holocaust denial, he's just asking WHY do they use it at their advantage in always saying.. bla bla bla we are the most suffering people in the world and we must have a country on that base. STFU. They are spiting in the face of the jews that died in the holocaust and all people that died in others massacres all over history. Life is equal for every human being, it's not more important if it's a jew.

And prince_of_peace, we could get out all quotes of zionists leaders and it would be as bad, if not worse, than the quotes of the president of Iran.

Yep!!! He's actually and all around good guy. I dont see what all the hype is these days surrounded him. He sounds very articulate and rational to me. If only all the leaders in the mid-east were like him and everything would be okay.

He's somewhat older than dirt.

If you look back in his early personal archives he also did an interview with Adolf Hitler. Many came away with a similar impression that Adolf was also misquoted. Fortunately, Wallace was also there to set the record straight.

Ahmadinejad isn't an anti-Semite, he just wants to kill every Jew.

Calling Ahmadinejad an anti-Semite would be like calling Dell a computer company. Dall makes more than computers!

Calling Ahmadinejad an anti-Semite would be like calling Ted Bundy a murderer. He wasn't a murderer, he was a serial killer.

Calling Ahmadinejad an anti-Semite would be like calling ATS a conspiracy website. It's not a conspiracy website, we just discuss agreements by three or more people to commit crimes, wrongful or subversive acts.

Kudos to Mike Wallace and his brave statement showing us that just because it acts like a duck, talks like a duck and looks like a duck, it may very well be a Boeing 777 with plasma engines and a crew of little green furry things.

i don't even think he wants to kill every jew, he just can't stand the fact that Israel is given special treatment and he can't stand that Israel is occupying Muslim land.

As everybody on this earth exept the zionists, he believe that there shouldn't be double standarts. That Israël isn't the chosen people. That a jew isn't better than everybody else. He just want EQUALITY. But no, when it's the poor little Israël... they have every rights in the world, they are above everyone else and every law in the world.

Funny, but there are plenty of Jews in Iran, and they seem to have been still alive last I checked. IIRC a Jewish member of the Iranian Parliament recently took Ahmadinejad to task for his comments on the Holocaust, and he seems to still be alive. One presumes that if the Iranians' aim was to "kill every Jew", they wouldn't have so many of them walking around.

Supporters of Israel like to hide behind accusations of anti-semitism when they run out of arguments, but opposition to the Israeli state and it's actions is not the same as "hatred of Jews". One is a country, the other is a religion.

Just as it's possible to oppose the radical Iranian Islamic theocracy without hating Muslims, so is it possible to oppose Israel, a militaristic Western colony in the Mideast, without hating Jews.

I have the greatest respect for Ahmadinejad, one of the few world leaders not entangled in the globalists web. I admire his courage to stand up to the globalist plan, their imperialistic plan for a world government. Yea you never hear any of that eh, you only hear how he said how he wants "Israel wiped off the map" because he knows its was forged and created illegally!

Kudos to Mike Wallace who had the courage to come out and say Ahmadinejad is not anti-semetic, hes anti-zionist and anti-imperialism, which we all should be.

Not to mention hes "smart as hell", according to Wallace.

Who cares what he says. There are Jews in Iran with no problems. Look to your own Religious "Homeland" and see what they do to arabs and then talk about someone else after you can talk about that first. Till then your whining about Anti-semetism falls on deaf ears.

You folks will look for any excuse to pardon Israel from its crimes against humanity. Actions speak louder then words. You forget the actions and concentrate on the words as though they draw blood. Its the actions drawing blood.

Well I'm glad this has all been cleared up then. I think we should nominate Mike Wallace for the Neville Chamberlain award. Obviously we have just been misinterpreting the Iranian President just as we did the Chancellor of Germany in the 1930's.

As if Iran is not guilty of “crimes against humanity”...

Furthermore, I see no one seeking to “pardon Israel” nor do I sense anyone “whining” in this thread...perhaps "You folks" (as say) are not the ones in need of an “excuse” to whine…

Oh what walls has Iran built surrounding Jews ?Are there preferential roads that Iranians use that jews in Iran can't? Are Iranian Jews subjected to illegal blockades ? Do jews have curfews in Iran? Do jews come outside and have Iranian tanks facing them in the face every day? What houses of Jews have Iranians been bulldozing? Has Iran confiscated Jewish taxes from Jewish Ports somewhere? Are Iranians dumping solid wastes as well as toxic wastes in jewish backyards and properties?Are Iranians culling sick poultry and then burying them on jewish lands? Please point me to any of those if you can find them. Who is out to kill who in reality and not in words of fantasy?
