Long live Ahmadinejad–An open letter of gratitude from the people of the world to Iran and her President
To–Dr. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, President of the Islamic Republic of Iran
In the name of God, the compassionate, the merciful…
Greetings Your Excellency, I pray that this finds you and your loved ones well, in good health and in God’s blessings.
As I (we) write this, it is June 13, 2013, one day before elections are to begin in Iran where a new president will be chosen.
To say that this is a bittersweet day for millions (billions?) of people around the globe is a great understatement Mr. President which I will try to explain now.
As your Excellency may remember, I spoke at the gathering set up in your honor in New York City in September 2012 . I began my speech by personally thanking you on behalf of me, my wife and our children for being such a source of hope and inspiration to us these last 8 years.
But I am sure, Mr. President–as much as I am sure that tomorrow follows today–that we are not alone in our appreciation for you and for all you have done for the cause of justice and truth over the last 8 years. As much as I know my own skin, I know there are people the world over–good people who have not been infected with this virus of evil that seem to have pervaded so much of the world these days–who are also reflecting on the importance of what today–your last day in office–represents to them in a very personal manner.
In the Christian tradition, we read about how Jesus Christ said something which was as much a warning to His enemies as it was a source of hope to his friends and followers when He personally condemned the Jewish leadership of His own day by saying–
“You snakes! You brood of vipers! How will you escape being condemned to hell? Therefore I am sending you prophets and sages and teachers. Some of them you will kill and crucify; others you will flog in your synagogues and pursue from town to town…’
And indeed, Jesus Christ has made good on his promise Mr. President, by sending to a world without hope and a world being destroyed by the forces of organized evil prophets, sages and teachers such as you.
Clearly, just as Jesus Christ–the man revered by Christians and Muslims alike–predicted, those seeking the path of God’s justice against the forces of organized evil have been killed, crucified, flogged in the synagogues and pursued from town to town. One need look no further than what has been done to the peoples of Palestine, Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya and beyond to see that this has taken place, and at an incalculable level.
More to the point however Mr. President, is that this is exactly how you and the great people of Iran have been treated by these organized forces of evil as well…You personally, but also your fellow Iranians, have been crucified, flogged in the synagogues of the evil doers and pursued from town to town in the court of public opinion, which these organized forces of evil possess through their control of the media. Just as they have for thousands of years defamed, mocked and slandered Jesus Christ and His message with the most scandalous, scurrilous and untrue statements in the interest of turning something that was wholesome and good into something profane, likewise have they done the same to you.
Besides this, your own people have been killed through a campaign of terrorism that has resulted in the deaths of several of your scientists and great thinkers. The sanctions put on your country–meant to cause universal hardship and thus political unrest–are nothing short of overt acts of war against a peaceful, enlightened nation that has done nothing more than to fiercely assert her sovereignty, her independence and her devotion to the cause of what is right and just.
And yet, throughout all of this, you, the Iranian people and the leadership of your country have stayed the course, maintained your dignity and your perseverance to the cause of truth and justice. Unlike what Israel and the West do on a daily basis, there have been no reprisals, no bombs going off or drone strikes by the Islamic Republic of Iran. Despite the fact that the countries that engage in the kind of aforementioned criminal behavior are soft targets that could easily be recipients of state sponsored violence against their people, nevertheless there have been no public assassinations or false flag attacks perpetrated by the Islamic Republic of Iran in the same fashion as Israel and the West engage on a daily basis.
Rather, the response from both you the individual and Iran as a people to all of this has been calm, measured and rational, and in doing thus, you have provided what a war-weary humanity needs more than anything else right now–a beacon of light in the midst of unprecedented darkness and a stark contrast between the forces of good and those of evil.
As your Excellency is aware, in the last century, but particularly in the last 10 years, the darkness that has enveloped the world has increased exponentially. As you have personally remarked in many of your speeches before the UN General Assembly, the promotion of war and the deliberate, concerted attack on religion, family, motherhood, the innocence of children and the basic moral threads necessary for any stable society to function have been traced back to the very same organized forces of evil whom Jesus Christ Himself condemned.
And yet, in the face of what has been a ceaseless, seamless 8 year onslaught, you, Dr. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, President of the Islamic Republic of Iran, have stood fearlessly, speaking out loudly against these evils when very few world leaders would. The shame I felt in watching as our own American Congress stood 30 times in applause in honor of the gangster and war criminal Benjamin Netanyahu during one of his recent trips to the nation’s capital was only outdone by witnessing the embarrassing spectacle of what the Zionist controlled American media did to your good name and person when I was in New York for the occasion of speaking at your gathering.
If only we had men such as you serving the interests of the people of the West rather than the elected and un-elected criminals and serpents who now prowl the halls of Congress, parliaments in Europe, and the White House, Pentagon and other centers of American/western power, how much better off the entire world would be.
And so it is sir, with great sadness, that I, my family, and millions (billions?) of persons the world over mourn the fact that your presidency has come to an end. In this–the era where evil seems to be devouring everything in its path–to have one man stand with your unyielding conviction as you have these last 8 years and with all the forces arrayed against you by the evil doers was something that has been a source of great emotional and spiritual nourishment for persons of good will the world over and has given hope to an otherwise hopeless situation.
Indeed, as Jesus promised, He did send prophets and sages and teachers, and although all who have come to know you over the years can see you shaking your head in disagreement over such accolades, nevertheless that is how we–all people of good will the world over–see you.
Indeed, as Jesus predicted, these evil days will be ‘shortened for the sake of the elect’ and that ‘every tear will be wiped dry,’ and those of us blessed to have lived in these days and to have followed your work these last 8 years know that the triumph of good over evil has been brought exponentially closer as a result of your sacrifices and it is a debt we can never repay.
And so, Mr. President, for us, your brothers and sisters in this great family of mankind who have been the beneficiaries of your courage and your strength these last 8 years, we say to you with with one voice, full of gratitude and affection–
LONG LIVE DR. MAHMOUD AHMADINEJAD, PRESIDENT OF THE ISLAMIC REPUBLIC OF IRAN.
