The President and I (a *must watch* interview of President Ahmadinejad)

By: Soraya Sepahpour-Ulrich I was pleasantly surprised when my request for an interview with Mr. Ahmadinejad, Iran’s president was accepted. President Ahmadinejad has never shied away from being heard, but these interviews had been exclusive to prominent mainstream media personalities such as Larry King and Charlie Rose. However, it was the mainstream media’s projection of Mr. Ahmadinejad that always remained questionable. On September 21, 2010, on the occasion of President

TRANSCRIPT: (Sorry for the lack of formatting of the text, I extracted it from the PDF file and did not have the time to make it look pretty – VS) Mr. President, Excellencies, Ladies and Gentlemen, I am grateful to the Almighty God who granted me the opportunity to appear before this world assembly once again. I wish to begin by commemorating those who lost their lives in the horrible

Speech of Iranian President Mahmud Ahmadinejad at the United Nations

(Note: Since I very doubt that many media outlets will provide the full speech of Ahmadinejad at the UN, I grabbed the PDF of his speech on the UN website, ran it throught Kword, cleaned it up and little and posted it here. One note of caution: this version is based on the speech he submitted, and could differ from what he actually said. Also – since this text is

Musings on yesterday’s elections in Iran

Let me begin my saying that I did not follow the campaigns of the four contenders to the post of President of Iran very closely. Nor did I carefully scrutinize their electoral platform. I did have a vague preference for anyone the West would consider a “moderate” (an utterly nonsensical concept) if only because it would make a military aggression on Iran by Israel and/or the USA harder to sell,

Gilad Atzmon – Ahmadinejad: “Read My Lips” plus Full Text of Speech

by Gilad Atzmon for Palestine Think Tank Once again I find myself saluting Iranian President Ahmadinejad, in full support of his words. No one could do better bringing to light European racial discriminatory sentiments. What we saw yesterday at the UN Anti Racism Forum was crude collective institutional Islamophobic racism in its making, a coordinated show of rabid western chauvinism. A bunch of European diplomats behaving as a herd of

Listening to Ahmadinejad on Larry King Live

Thanks to Information Clearing House even somebody like me, who does not even own a TV, can sometimes watch a TV show of some interest. This was the case today when I sat down and watched the interview of Iranian President Ahmadinejad on Larry King Live. I must admit that I had high expectations. After all “Larry King” (his real name is: Lawrence Harvey Zeiger) is a very intelligent and

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s speech to the 2008 UN General Assembly

The following is a copy of Iranian President Ahmadinejad’s speech to the United Nations General Assembly early Wednesday morning, as translated by the Presidency of the Islamic Republic of Iran News Service: Mr. President, Excellencies, I am grateful to the Almighty for granting me another opportunity to be present in this world Assembly. In the last three years, I have talked to you about great hopes in the bright future

Bolivia cements Iran ties amid US dismay

Ahmadinejad: ‘Regional states can solve Caucuses crisis’

Press TV reports: Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has said the Georgian crisis can be solved by the regional countries without any foreign interference. “The regional countries are able to resolve the issue if countries from outside the region do not interfere in the case,” Ahmadinejad said in a press conference in Dushanbe, Tajikistan on Thursday. “The Islamic Republic enjoys a friendly relation with all the regional nations and has deep

Maliki summoned to Tehran

Press TV reports that Maliki will travel to Tehran this Sunday for the discussion of “a further expansion bilateral ties” and that he will meet with both President Ahmadinejad and, more importantly, Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei. So what are they going to discuss? Opening an Iraqi chamber of commerce in Tabriz or maybe expanding cultural ties? Hardly. There is no doubt in my mind at all that what will really

Ahmadinejad Reiterates Iran Rights in Rally

Alalam New reports: Massive rallies were held across Iran on Monday as the nation commemorated the 29th anniversary of the Islamic revolution. Hundreds of thousands of people took to the streets of the capital Tehran and millions in the provinces to renew their allegiance to the ideals of the late founder of the Islamic Revolution, Imam Khomeini, and to show their solidarity with the government.

Saker interview with Soraya Sepahpour-Ulrich

I have recently posted an interesting piece by Soraya Sepahpour-Ulrich entitled “Iran Intelligence Report: Another Psychological Warfare?“. This was not the first time I had read Soraya’s very interesting and insightful articles about Iran and this latest piece prompted me to contact Soraya and ask her for an interview. Soraya kindly agreed to my request and it is my real pleasure today to resume my “Saker interviews” series with a

Do Omert and Ahmadinejad actually agree on the future of Israel?

Check out what Ehud Olmert just declared (according to Ha’aretz): If the day comes when the two-state solution collapses, and we face a South African-style struggle for equal voting rights (also for the Palestinians in the territories), then, as soon as that happens, the State of Israel is finished. The Jewish organizations, which were our power base in America, will be the first to come out against us because they
