Larry King Interview of Ahmadinejad

Posted by Glezele Vayne on April 23, 2009


I have been watching Ahmadinejad carefully, in several settings. Though the man says outrageous things, his manner is not that of a madman. I mean, watch Hitler…the ranting and raving should have been the first clue. I can’t decide if he is delusional, naive and/or grossly misinformed (perhaps a stooge set up by other more powerful men within Iran) or a skillful liar.

“The Zionist regime is an uninvited guest. It is an occupier….I’d like to ask you, if someone comes and occupies the United States, as American people, would you give them any rights, or would you force them out?”

Rebuttal: Israel was created along with other Class A mandate nations, namely, Iraq, Syria, Jordan & Lebanon.

From Wikipedia

The Class A mandates were:

  • ‘Mesopotamia’ (United Kingdom), 10 August 19203 October 1932, which became the independent kingdom of Iraq.
  • ‘Palestine’ (United Kingdom), from 25 April 1920 (effective 29 September 192315 May 1948). In April 1921, ‘Transjordan’ was incorporated as an autonomous area under the mandate.[13][14] It eventually became the independent Hashemite Kingdom of Transjordan (later Jordan) on 22 March 1946. Following the termination of the remainder of the Palestine mandate, most of the territory became part of the State of Israel, other parts, until 1967, forming the West Bank of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, the Egyptian-occupied Gaza Strip and small slivers of territory east and south of the Sea of Galilee held by Syria.
  • ‘Syria’ (France), 29 September 19231 January 1944, including ‘Lebanon’; Hatay (a former Ottoman Alexandretta sandjak) broke away from it and became a French protectorate, until it was ceded to the new Republic of Turkey. Following the termination of the French mandate, two separate independent republics were formed, Syria and Lebanon

I’ve heard a lot (sic) that unfortunately, a group of people are trying to infuse the idea among the American people that Iran even wants to attack the United States, that Iran is a violent country…These (sic) are all false propaganda. Where have we ever attacked?”

Rebuttal: Jewish Virtual Library

“Argentina’s Israeli Embassy in Buenos Aires was the sight of the first explosion, a car bomb, on March 17, 1992. The bomb killed 29, and injured over 250. Among the victims were Israeli diplomats, children and clergy from a church located across the street, and other passerby. The investigation of the case was assigned to Argentina’s Supreme Court. It was not until July 18, 1994, that the case again received serious attention. On that date, the AMIA Jewish community center in Buenos Aires was bombed; 87 people were killed, and over 100 injured. Judge Jose Galeano was assigned to investigate, but, like Judge Levene, he made little progress. Later in 1994 came the first of several breakthroughs in the embassy bombing case. Six Lebanese and one Brazilian, arrested for operating a drug cache, were found to be members of Hezbollah, the Iranian-backed Lebanese terrorist organization. The Argentine government announced that the men were tied to the embassy bombing. After several days, however, the suspects were released due to a lack of evidence.”

“Please pay attention to the fact that the Zionists are not Jewish people. They have no religion. They have no religion. They’re neither Jews, nor Christians, nor Moslems. They just wear a mask of religiosity…How can you call yourself a religious person and kill women and children?”

Rebuttal: Following are a few Sbarro Pizzeria suicide bombing photos. Hamas, which claims to be performing the Islamic religious duty of jihad against the infidels (Jews) is a proxy of Iran. Hamas took responsibility for this bombing.

Rebuttal: How can a person call themselves religious and celebrate the deaths of women and children?

These women look like "religious" Muslims to me Mr. Ahmadinejad. Are they not celebrating the deaths of innocent women and children? Or are "Zionists" not only lacking in status as Jews, but as humans to you?

“Let’s assume that it (the Holocaust) happened the extent of which everyone is speaking of. Where did it happen? Did it happen in Palestine? Or did it happen in Europe? If it happened…in Europe, if the crimes were committed in Europe, why should the Palestinian people be victimized as a result?…Why pay from the pocket of some other people?…The Palestinian people had no role in that crime. They’re innocent completely.”

A letter asking for a truck to bring Zyklon-B to Auschwitz; uses the standard camouflage term "resettlement of Jews" to refer to extermination. Another such document asks for "material for special treatment" - another term used to disguise extermination (more on these terms in our file of Nazi documents).

Rebuttal: Video evidence with sworn affidavits by U.S. military personnel attesting to overwhelming evidence of acts of genocidal murder. This video was filmed immediately after Allied liberation of the death camps

Rebuttal: Photo (one of many easily found in books and on the internet) of Haj Amin al-Husayni shaking hands with Hitler.


Rebuttal: Video of Husayni with Hitler, as well as Muslim SS troops. Husayni has been labeled the father of modern Jihad, as well as the major impetus behind the importation of Nazi genocidal views towards Jews to the Arabs of the Middle East.

“Do you think relations between the two countries, the United States and Iran, can get better?”

Ahmadinedad’s response

“Definitely so. I want to remind you that the United States cut its relations with us unilaterally, as a means to place pressure on us. Maybe the politicians back then in the United States thought that with the severance of ties, Iran will die or that it will be weakened. But as you know, this didn’t happen…It was the United States that cut ties with us, not us.

Ellie’s response

Agreed! Ahmadinejad is absolutely correct on this count. Thanks a lot Jimmy Carter. By departing from the wise (Democratic) Truman Doctrine, and betraying our loyal ally, Iran and it’s leader the Shah, we nor only suffered with the hostage crisis at the American Embassy in Iran, we now have even worse dictators in place in Iran, the mullahs, and this man, who seems to sincerely believe in his “messianist” mission.

Carter didn’t benefit his countrymen nor did he benefit the good people of Iran in any way. Though the Shah was an autocrat, certainly not an ideal leader, I encourage those readers who are not familiar with it to read and learn about the Truman Doctrine. It had it’s deficiencies, but it was by far a preferred strategy over the legacy of Jimmy Carter. Read the works of Professor Alan Dershowitz and you will learn what motivates Carter.
