It's easy to see why people are afraid of Iran. President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has threatened to wipe Israel off the map and claimed the United States
was behind 9/11. You wouldn't trust anyone who says things like that to be in charge of a country!
But making your enemies seem like unbalanced lunatics is just an old propaganda trick. For instance, remember that comment about wanting to wipe
Israel off the map? According to the people who translated the statement in the first place, it was translated worse than a Final Fantasy game, due to
"time pressure to produce a translation quickly." It would be more accurate to say Ahmadinejad wanted to see a regime change
, which is a pretty
common statement in global politics.
Experts confirm that Iran's president did not call for Israel to be 'wiped off the map'. Reports that he did serve to strengthen western hawks.
My recent comment piece explaining how Iran's president was badly misquoted when he allegedly called for Israel to be "wiped off the map" has caused a
welcome little storm. The phrase has been seized on by western and Israeli hawks to re-double suspicions of the Iranian government's intentions, so it
is important to get the truth of what he really said.
I took my translation - "the regime occupying Jerusalem must vanish from the page of time" - from the indefatigable Professor Juan Cole's website
where it has been for several weeks.
But it seems to be mainly thanks to the Guardian giving it prominence that the New York Times, which was one of the first papers to misquote Mahmoud
Ahmadinejad, came out on Sunday with a defensive piece attempting to justify its reporter's original "wiped off the map" translation.
Ahmadinejad comment about Israel was mistranslated - Guardian News
Just because Ahmadinejad wanted a regime change in Israel (like the hundreds of thousands of people
who protested last month in Israel
), didn't go well the Elite establishment. So they made up some outrageous BS about Ahmadinejad's orginal
comment on Israel's Government , and fed it to the masses through the mainstream media, and unfortunately they all bought it because obviously the
average person in the West doesn't know Persian.
Another lie floating around the world is that Ahmadinejad is "anti-semitic". Ahmadinejad isn't "anti-semitic". Iran has the
3rd largest population of Jews in the World
and they are all well looked after. Don't believe me?
Look for yourself:
I bet you didn't know Jews live freely and without oppression in Iran
All this just to build up a bunch of lies to justify a future "humanitarian intervention" or even a War with Iran when we finally reach the stages of
the long awaited Global Economic Collapse.
So next time you hear someone say Ahmedinejad is an "anti-semitic" who wants to "wipe off Israel off the map", just show them the Guardian article or
this thread to clear things up. Its better to educate the masses with the truth now than when you see a mushroom cloud in your back yard.
And just to clear up another thing, Ahmadinejad doesn't even have much power in his OWN
country even though he has the title of "President".
The Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei does, and he controls Iran's NUCLEAR POLICY, ARMED FORCES AND FOREIGN POLICY!
So it beats me why the West only demonises poor old Ahmadinejad!
