Dear Mister President,
You will recall that you opened your first term of office with an overture, as you put it, to the ‘Islamic Republic’ of Iran. Let’s be friends, you said, offering the ‘Islamic Republic’ your hand. That same hand, as I’m sure you know, was bitten by the 'Islamic Republic' dog. With you it is not a case of once bitten twice shy; for the hand is being extended once again. You have offered direct talks with the growling mongrels in Teheran.
Let’s have a look a little more closely at the ‘Islamic Republic’. Yes, Mister President, why don’t you look a little more closely? Let me help you, because you really have to know what you are dealing with before your hand is bitten off altogether
Iran is not so much an ‘Islamic Republic’ as an idea, and that idea is hatred of America and all that America represents. You know the sort of thing – human rights, democracy, decency, integrity and free expression, all the spawn of the ‘Great Satan.’
Mister President, do you know, do your fellow Americans know, that every February Teheran is the setting for two international conferences? One is called “A World without America” and the other is called “A World without Israel.”
Yes, it’s a jolly occasion, attracting a bevy of ‘thinkers’ from across the planet, including, as I understand from a recent report in the political journal Prospect, from America itself. Given that Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Iran’s fraudulent president, has a record of Holocaust denial it should be no surprise that some of these same ‘thinkers’ are notorious anti-Semites.
The two conferences are closely linked, part of Iran’s evolving strategy. The focus is on “the sacred cause”, a two-stage plan for the destruction of the “Great Satan.” The first stage is the elimination of Israel, which Ahmadinejad has promised to “wipe off the map.” He has terrorist proxies working towards that end – Hamas in Gaza and Hezbollah in Lebanon.
Once Israel goes America will follow. How, you may wonder? Just keep your eye on the Iran’s nuclear programme. Consider the possibility that atomic attacks would come not with missiles but with suitcases. You have considered this possibility; surely you have?
The ‘Islamic Republic’ is a nation motivated not by religion but by hatred. Actually it isn’t so much a nation state as an ideology, one that allows for no compromise. In some ways it is a more direct threat to America and American interests across the globe than Tojo’s Japan or Hitler’s Germany ever were. The danger is greater, you see, because it is more invidious.
So far as the ‘Islamic Republic’ is concerned it is headed by the only “divinely guided” government on earth, a government with a mission. All who oppose the ‘path of the Imam’ are dushman – the enemy. There is no compromise with enemies, internal or external.
More than 100,000 dissidents have been executed or died in prison since Khomeini’s Islamic paradise was established in 1979. A further five million have fled into exile. But that is no guarantee of safety, for at least 120 have been assassinated since 1989, murders in America, in England, in Germany, in France and in Switzerland.
A greater assassination is planned. “We want to destroy America, not negotiate with it”, said Ayatollah Mohammad Yazidi, a wholly delightful man who has publicly endorsed Iran’s military nuclear programme. He is also in favour of suicide bombers and the killing of anyone who has the temerity to insult Islam. For him Zionists are the “fundamental source of evil on earth.” Amongst other things he has said that the enemies of Islam will always fight while chanting peace-seeking slogans, something you would do well to take heed of, Mister President.
Former President George W. Bush famously described Iran as part of an axis of evil. The regime has been rather busy in recent years building its own axis. All are welcome, Islamic or not, provided they share Teheran’s hatred of the Great Satan. North Korea is there, of course, as are Venezuela, Bolivia, Nicaragua and Ecuador, governed by subversive leftist regimes. With their support Ahmadinejad was elected as head of the so-called non-aligned movement last year.
Do you understand, Mister President, are you capable of understanding what a dangerous place the world has become, what a dangerous country Iran is? I write ‘country’ but that really does not apply in any normal sense. Those who govern that land have taken it deep into barbarism. If they are allowed they will take the world into barbarism, urged forward by their messianic mission.
Here I am minded of something Winston Churchill once said when my country was faced with a barbaric foe. I adapt them, Mister President, for your benefit. The simple truth is we have to stand up to the ‘Islamic Republic.’ If we fail, then the whole world, including the United States, including all that we have known and cared for, will sink into the abyss of a new Dark Age made more sinister, and perhaps more protracted, by the lights of perverted faith.
