Ahmadinejad’s letter to Bush & Prophet Mohammad
Mehran Riazaty: Iran Analyst
Years after Mohammad become a Prophet he sent letters to a number of neighboring monarchs and rulers inviting them to Islam. He told his companions "Allah has sent me as a mercy for all humankind (and not just for Muslims). Do not differ amongst yourself like 'Isa's (Jesus) disciples. Take this message of truth to everyone."
On April 5, the Iranian Labor News Agency (ILNA) reported that a member of Iran’s Parliament, Ezatollah Josefijan, said last night in a meeting Ahmadinejad said we are acquainted with a situation which is directed by invisible power. Ahmadinejad added that this situation will go on for another seven or eight years.
The main question is that who really wrote this letter? Ahmadinejad could not send this letter to President Bush without supports of powerful Ayatollahs. This letter was most likely written by the Supreme Leader of Iran Ayatollah Khamenei to advise President Bush and also buy more time delaying the United Nations Security Council sanction on Iran.
Yesterday, Mehr (2) and many other Farsi news agencies published Ahmadinejad’s letter to President Bush. The content of letter was mostly concentrated on the war in Iraq, Israel and Holocaust, the responsibility of world leaders, the nuclear dossier and the security council, on religion, Saddam Hussein, the truth about lying, the world in general, and the end of liberal democracy.
Webnevesht reported, in regard to Ahmadinejad’s letter to Bush, Mohammad Ali Abtahi, close advisor of former President Mohammad Khatami, said Ahmadinejad holds himself responsible for; Invitation to Godly, spiritual and Islamic values. This kind of correspondence probably inspired by the Prophet' letters to the heads of the old world, today in a period obviously different from what the Prophet was standing in and in a completely different world, neither results in the salvation and deliverance of Mr Bush nor helps the country out of the global dangerous problems it is facing currently especially now that the Islamic Republic of Iran has lost the last resisting card for any direct negotiations with the US.
On December 18, 05 IRIB News Agency reported Ahmadinejad in a gathering on the campus of Tarbiat-e Modarres University stressed Iran's right to peaceful nuclear technology and said those owning this technology has no right to deprive other nations of such a right. He strongly condemned the oppression being done to nations by suppressive powers under different pretexts. He said "they suppress any voice under the pretext of maintaining freedom of expression and impose medieval values and manners in modern disguise on nations." The president then expressed his confidence that all kinds of oppression would come to an end once rule of Islam prevails in the whole world. READ MORE
