Iranian President.




Iranian President to Meet Wall Street Movement Activists in New York TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is due to meet Occupy Wall Street Movement activists during his upcoming visit to New York, where he is slated to attend the annual meeting of the UN General Assembly.

Ahmadinejad is also set to meet American university students, artists, intellectuals and elites despite the ongoing efforts made by the pro-Zionist lobbies to prevent direct link between American people and the Iranian president.

America's own president won't sit down with these people, so it appears Mahmoud will do so; however big of a ploy it is, it's a jab at Obama more than anything.

I don't recall that he met with protestors in the streets of Iran 2 years ago?...

Something tells me this will be his last trip to New York.

I look forward to Ahmadinejad's speech at the U.N. on Wednesday. For those who haven't seen one of his speeches at the assembly every September, it's well worth putting it on your calender as a must see

Hmm. Everything is making me think deeply, especially this news... I wonder if Mahmoud agrees with that which the protestors are saying. I also wonder how he would deal with protests like this in his own country. Its just another interesting thing to happen, especially after reading the "Iranian hackers hack [Insert financial Institution that is corrupt here]"

Reuters says it's Wednesday that Ahmadinejad speaks:

"Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, a regular at the assembly since he took office in 2005, will give his final speech there on Wednesday and will address a meeting on the "rule of law" on Monday."

He will give his speech and the US will walk out like normal, cant hear an original idea if you are from the west, heaven forbid he may say something logical.
It will also get very little coverage unless something is taken out of context.

Given the fact that Iran is under a microscope, and under threat of attack from Israel...and possibly the U.S....I would expect that his speech will get a lot of coverage.

To expect him to say something logical however, is asking a bit too much...

He's usually the most logical speaker at the U.N., unless you think someone questioning the abuse of power is illogical?

Will it be televised? I don't watch TV so I just don't know. If not how can I see it live? He has been known to cause a stir and I am very interested in what he will have to say this year.

Was there ever an "Occupy" initiative in Iran? Probably not. If there was the Iranian authorities would have has no compunction to brutally suppress, as is normal policy when dealing with dissent of any kind.

It must make the New Yorker's particularly smug that a man which is President of an intolerant police state is taking them seriously. I wonder if any of them are gay? It's a joke.

Kind of how the US suppresses their dissenters? Hmmm?

I don't think they care much about Iran. They are more concerned with their own rights and their own country. Seems like you are in denial or just ignorant about how oppressive your own state is, so you want to make Iran look bad to make yourself feel better. Yeah, it is a joke...

I only have one question - WHY ?

It just seems like a really strange meeting to me. Does he think he can learn something about taking down the USA from the Occupy supporters? Does he want to recruit them?

Thanks for the insightful comments. No offence, but your response is so predictable and rehearsed.

The fact is that the US does not treat protests or “dissent” in any way remotely like Iran. A modicum of research will uncover bags of cases of Iranian brutality and murder of protesters, alongside intimidation, mass arrests etc.

For Ahmadinejad to play a stunt like this and for New Yorker’s to fall for this hypocrisy just demonstrates how barmy some people can be.

This looks like pure propaganda from FARS, to play up the whole "US student protestors" angle to make Ajad's regime, which has seen it's share of student protestors, look better in the eyes of his countrymen.

Nothing in his itinerary nor the UN's schedule suggests he will even come close to meeting "intellectuals" or students, protesting or otherwise, here in the US. A planned protest from the "United Against a Nuclear Iran" will have him and his security delegation fairly boxed in at their hotel.

This is the sort of clumsy propaganda piece from Iran we've seen before, it's not aimed at us, but for Iranians.

We know what they do to people like then in Iran


The daughter of influential former Iranian president Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani was taken to prison late on Saturday to serve a six-month sentence for "spreading anti-state propaganda," Iranian media reported.



The conviction is believed to be over an interview she gave to an opposition news site in which she criticised human rights violations and economic policy in Iran.

Presstv had a scathing report blaming Netanyahu for 9/11 and that bibi should "hang" (presstv's words) for his involvement in 9/11. My money is on Ahmad to denoynce 9/11 as a zionist job, and Netanyahu should be arrested

...and then que the fat US representatives to walk out...along with cowardly countries like Bolivia who will try to get brownie points for staging a walkout.

It begs the question, WHY DO THEY SHOW UP IN THE FIRST PLACE?

Or, an offchance the reps mght stay and listen since obama is not on good terms with bibi. Maybe Obama and ahmad will be friends! Neocons would crap their pants over that one haha, long shot though.

Why? Ahmadinejad shows up to spread his hatred of jews, denounce democracy and generally have a rant. It is for home consumption, he doesnt believe anyone else will believe him.

Considering he thinks that we steal Iran's rain, I don't think this'll look favorably on OWs. They already have a bad rep as Socialists and other malcontents. Unless they reject him, this will not look good for them.
