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–


Mark Glenn

    i’m very glad i read this eye opener ~ Adds a whole new and valuable perspective. Thank you,
    Amahdinejab did this under the constant threat of nukuler WMD’s pointed at him from Israhell ~ that’s a lot of stress for everyone in Iran.

  5. #5 by rehmat1 on 06/14/2013 - 9:34

    As a Muslim admirer of Dr. Ahmadinejad, I thank you Mark from bottom of my heart. Ahmadinejad has always been a champion for the 99% “have not” majority, in Iran and around the world. I sttll remember the statement made in 2006 by another Catholic blogger, Joanna Francis. She paid glowing tributes to Ahmadinejad by saying: “Iranian President Sounds More Like a Pope than Benedict XVI”.

    The ordinary citizen in Islamic Iran – and they constitute the majority of population – considered Ahmadinejad to be one of their own. And he pretty much said what was on their minds. Ahmadinejad comes across to the average person in the Republic as honest, modest, and free of artificiality. His body is slim just like theirs; his face is not puffed up with the layers of affluence that come from being a “president”. One could easily confuse Ahmadinejad with any worker or craftsman in a field or in a shop.

    The majority of people in Islamic Iran know Ahmadinejad’s simple lifestyle well. He comes from a blacksmith family in the small town of Aradan – which has about forty families – a place so vague and remote that it barely appears on the map!

    Like all country people, Ahmadinejad is very meek and “religious”. He is not known for being ostentations – he is not a man who likes to attract notice and impress others. And during the past four years when all his citizens were watching he was not contaminated by the disease of aristocracy and of the ruling class: vanity. On the people’s watch – during these past four years – he was working long hours (even his adversaries and political enemies confess) 16 to 18 hours a day. He was doing all this to improve the lot of the poor people; he wanted to improve their conditions. His aim was to alleviate their hardships and be their public servant. He raised the minimum wage as well as retirement pensions. Does it come as surprise to anyone that poor people all over the country would vote for him as president for the next four years? Is anyone surprised to see the elites, the upper classes of society, and the power-hungry annoyed by such a humble person and his populist policies?

    Unlike his opponent (Mousavi) Ahmadinejad is closer to Imam Khomeini’s foreign vision of folding back imperialism and Zionism. He, like the Imam is not hesitant when it comes to full liberation from the evil schemes of imperialism and Zionism.

    “During the first political generation of Islam after the Prophet (pbyh) – there were credentialed Muslims who believed in an Islamic government. Some of them spent their lives fighting for an Islamic government. But they differed on methods and priorities. Some of them wanted an “Arab First” government. Some of them wanted to be relieved of the “global burdens” of an Islamic government; others wanted to get on with life and improve their standard of living. And for 1400 year we have been suffering from that political deviation. President Ahmadinejad brings back to the Muslim voices that were crowded out by nationalism and class interests in the early generation of Islam. A vote for him is not simply a vote for the president of Iran, it’s a vote for Imam Hussein against Yazid, a vote for the Che Guevara against his executioners, a vote for Hugo Chavez against US imperialism, and a vote for the Palestinians against their Zionist murderers…..This should explain why the US was more interested in the elections in Iran than they were in their own. Ahmadinejad’s political enemies, as fervent as their Shi’i rituals are, were they to win would have in their own ways put us back on the slippery slope of the post-khilafah era,” – Abu Dharr, Crescent International, July 2009.

    “The American media adheres to no standards and observes no limits in carrying out its function of manipulating public opinion in accordance with the objectives, domestic and foreign, of the American ruling elite. Nothing so clearly demonstrates the decay of American democracy and the “free press” in the United States than the manner in which it lines up behind phony “color revolutions” against regimes deemed inimical to US interests and ignores flagrantly antidemocratic measures by regimes backed by the CIA, the military and State Department,” – Barry Grey in Tehran and Tegucigalpa: A tale of two capitals.

    Russian-Israeli writer, Israel Shamir, in his article Iran: All is well that Ends Well wrote: Ahmadinejad is also popular all over the world as a symbol of the Third World rebellion, on a par with Castro and Chavez. He maintains good relationship with neighbouring Russia and China, even with the US-occupied Iraq and Afghanistan. Ahmadinejad’s lightning visit to Yekaterinburg to the SCO conference in the midst of the upheaval has proved his statesmanship. In his well-received fiery speech he never referred to the crisis back home, and he was congratulated by his peers President Medvedev and President Hu Jintao for his electoral victory. His stalwart anti-Zionist stand endeared him to the Arab neighbours of Iran, even to the annoyance of Arab rulers. His weapons saved Lebanon in 2006 from being devoured by Israel. Sometimes he goes too far, but otherwise, how can he find out how far he can go?

    Mahmoud Ahmadinejad (b. 1956) is an Iranian academic with PhD in transpiration engineering – which he taught at Science and Technology University. He entered politics and was elected Mayor of Tehran in 2003. On June 24, 2005 he won the election of President of Islamic Republic of Iran on the platform of providing social justice and fight on corruption and poverty.

    Like many other Zionist myths – the myth of Wipe Israel off the map attributed to Ahmadinejad – is also entertaining to people with rational thinking. Like the others, it should also be enjoyed without being joining Zionists in their self-denial that the only country which has been wiped off the map in the modern time – is 5,000-year-old Palestine.

    I would like to show my pagan support as well. Dr Mahmoud is an inspiration to Nationalists of all creeds….with perhaps one exception…*cough*

    Absolutely beautiful Mark! I’ve learned to respect and admire President Ahmadinejad through you, and any one who is good friends with Chavez and Castro is most definitely A+ in my book. But I will say this much, President Ahmadinejad is number one. I find it impossible to describe him in one word, because there are too many beautiful ones to pick from. His faith and spirituality kept him strong and fiesty, at the same time, it worked to his advantage. A Leader who took control, despite the constant stress and pressure. How can I not admire such a Great Man and Leader? I, too, pray for more like him. For me, he is a Prophet.

    Thank you so much Rehmat1 for sharing President Ahmadinejad’s background, and for taking the time to write a very well respected summary of him. He is brilliant!

    I’m sure his jolly self will be touch. All the best. May Allah Bless Him and keep Him close to His Heart.

    Indeed he is an inspiration. “You shall know them by their fruit” is what describes Ahmadinejad. A strong person with a great sense of responsibility that brought out the words which no other person would dare to speak in front of the UN assembly – the truth, year after year. With all this, he is a very humble man who does what he preaches as well – which is far more powerful than just words. I as an Iranian Christian living abroad will miss him greatly. May God bless him, his family and nation.

    Dr. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad will be missed the world over for his commitment to the truth.
    When most western nations have adapted Hate Crime Laws. That silence critics of Israel and that chapter in history called the Holocaust. Dr. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad courageous stand on this subject that had persecuted good men and women for “violating” these laws in the West was exemplary and served as beacon for those who’s voices were not heard and even silenced permanently to stop there message of truth. Which in turn gave others the courage to pursue where the one’s who were silenced left off.
    Dr. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad will be missed the world over for his wisdom.
    When the rest of the world plotted against Iran. Thru lies and overt acts of war. Killing their scientists and lying about Iran’s Nuclear program. Dr. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad showed the utmost restraint and grace under pressure in not responding in kind. Keeping the World from further threat of a WW III. Even though the West aligned with Israel is still in pursuance of this goal. He showed through his restraint. Who the real Demons of the World were and barred these blows to his beloved Iran with grace.
    Dr. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad will be missed the world over for his of the love the people of the world and his steadfastness to defend them.
    In a day when those who seek higher office for power,money and prestige. He saw his office as pulpit for the will and voice of the people of not just Iran. But Arabs,Muslims and all people who are being oppressed in the World. He condemned the attack on Afghanistan,Iraq,Libya and now Syria. Not because they were Arab countries. But because he realized to attack these countries in furtherance of Empire. To steal the natural resources of the people of those countries. To enslaved those countries people with usury and insurmountable debt. To destroy the peoples culture and literally bomb those peoples nations into the stone ages. Killing millions of innocent people. Including women and children. Was Wrong!
    Dr. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad supported the Palestinians and Hezbollah. Because he understood that the injustice of displacing people from there indigenous home land. With no right to return is Wrong!
    Iran under Dr. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad leadership have paid a price for standing for what is right in the World. Through crippling sanctions that hurt there economy. Yet Iran through the leadership Dr. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s patient and truly prudent leadership endures and serves as one of the finest examples as a Islamic Republic the World had ever known. In which other Arab Countries will eventually follow in the future. But it was Dr. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s love of all people. That has so far kept World in a balance. To where it is not completely (as of yet) imploding on it’s self.
    Hopefully the Iranian people will elect a man that is just as wise,prudent and courageous as you have been.
    May Allah bless Dr. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad! You will be missed. .

    What a beautiful tribute to a man that I have admired since hearing his first speech here in the states. Thank you Mark

  18. #18 by T.J. on 06/14/2013 - 9:34

    Great letter, Mark. No doubt that you are a fabulous writer and your message is stupendous. I sure hope it is widely read.

    Only one point to call to your attention. Where you state, “The shame I felt in watching as our own American Congress stood 30 times in applause in honor of the…”, I too have seen that disgusting spectacle of Congress groveling like base cowards before Israel’s Prime Minister, but I believe it was actually 29 standing ovations in praise of that awful man and his “shitty little country”.

  19. #19 by KARIM JAHIL HAKIM AFRAIM on 06/14/2013 - 9:34

    Mr. president thank you for your 8 years of service. Thank you for bravery thank you for your dedication and most of all thank you for being one of the few people to speak the truth about the evil Zionist party. You are a hero a pillar of strength.

  20. #20 by daniel mabsout on 06/14/2013 - 9:34

    very true but this is not a separate phenomenon but an expression of a natural drive and we think there are others and there will be more and more

  21. #21 by Tony on 06/14/2013 - 9:34

    I concur 100 percent with all of the kind, yet truthfully words. I’m sure that all of the carnival barkers across the MSM will vilify him and his country. The country that has the honorable distinction of “kicking out the West”

  22. #22 by Egeria on 06/14/2013 - 9:34

    Thank you so much Mark Glenn for expressing with such beautiful and profound words the deep sentiment and gratitude we all feel in our hearts for President Ahmadinejad.

    Allow me to quote here below a passage of your letter, dear Mark, as no words have ever defined Iran, it’s People and President Ahmadinejahd better than you did in this paragraph:

    “… 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.”

    Thank you Dr. Ahmadinejad – in my heart you will always be my President though I am an Italian citizen.

    Bravo, Searchlight- Viva Putin y Ahmadinejad!

  24. #24 by ron abbass on 06/15/2013 - 9:34

    Thank you Mark G for presenting, on behalf of “millions (billions?)” of us, your excellent and praiseworthy acclamation of Ahmadinejad. I think all, who seek truth, justice and peace, would agree that your tribute to him is beyond price! Peace and blessings to you and yours, Mark G!

  25. #25 by Merlin Miller on 06/15/2013 - 9:34

    I join Mark Glenn and so many others in support of this letter of gratitude. President Ahmadinejad is a courageous leader who has stood up to Globalist/Zionist oppressions and intrigues by promoting Iran’s justified interests and national sovereignty. He is a man of faith and family, who will stare down evil, yet offer a compassionate smile to those working for truth, justice, liberty and peace. May God continue to bless him and may America find leaders of strength and integrity.

  26. #26 by annebeck58 on 06/16/2013 - 9:34

    Sometimes, I wish there was a button to click instead of “like”, as I LOVE this post and agree with your assessment of Dr Ahmadinejad.
    What I find (almost) humorous is this: the USA watched the elections in Iran, eight years back, and the “news” media rooted for the man. Yet, almost as soon as he was elected, they turned on him and set upon him like a pack of wild dogs. I think we know why. Dr Ahmadinejad was not going to bow down to the Israeli-USA-EU Axis of Evil. This meant, to the media (via those who run the show), he was evil incarnate.

    I am sad to see this great man leave office, but I hope he’ll be around to advise their new president, Rohani.

    If only the USA would wrest us from the jaws of the bulls in Isra-hell, the world could change for the better. I just don’t see it happening and I find that depressing.
    It’s a sad day, indeed.

    I read your letter again ,today,9.05.2018 and I do agree with you 100%
    I do believe that only his wisdom and courage saved the world from a total disaster few years ago.
    Will the world ever understand that?I doubt
