From ABC News: Embattled Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has shared a few thoughts with the world on the anniversary of 9/11:
“The September 11 [attacks] were actually a planned game to provoke the human community’s sentiments and find an excuse for launching attack on Muslim regions and occupying Iraq and Afghanistan, which led to the massacre of one million innocent people…”
In other news from the center of enlightenment and tolerance known as the Islamic Republic of Iran, three men were hanged last Sunday for the crime of homosexual conduct. This may appear to contradict the famous claims that the Iranian president made in New York that Iran has no homosexual problem per se, but as long as all known homosexuals are hung on sight then presumably the problem is under control.
Clearly, those who fear that a nuclear Iran would be a destabilizing or dangerous presence in the Middle East are a bunch of ignorant, neo-conservative war mongering thugs. We should do everything we can to win the friendship and trust of this noble regime and make it our partner in the quest for durable Middle East peace.
