A contrast from the present

Ahmadi-Nejad's Iran of today revels in the imminent prospect of nuclear weapons for national prestige, hiding the ills of the nation under this distraction.

He recently spent $300 million on Hamas and Hezbollah, $523 million on re-equipping the mostly Arab mercenary suppression brigades called the Bassij - and $700 million on a nuclear power plant he does not need but helps buy off the Russians. Who, incidentally have around 50,000 consultants/advisors inside Iran sending home about $50 million a month back to mother Russia.

All this in addition to the cost of weapons and equipment Iran provides terrorists in Iraq, Lebanon, Gaza and the West Bank.

Arabs - because Iranians, inured as they are to atrocities by the Mullahs, still hesitate to implement the vicious methods used to suppress dissent in public - though it is Iranians who torture, maim and kill alleged political opponents inside prisons, where they are hidden from the public eye.

One insiduous method uses condemned felony criminals, murderers, drug smugglers, rapists and street thugs to do the dirty work.

These are transfered from criminal prisons to where political prisoners are held to threaten their safety and pick fights and beat or kill (with total immunity from the authorities) the political philosophers, who are rarely athletic or able to match physical strength with the worst of the worst criminal element.

The seemingly "secular" Iranian President, whose fanatical Hojatieh sect beliefs require global meltdown and the most intense of human suffering everywhere to invite back their Redeemer, the 12th Imam, also revels at the thought of being the man who brought down the world as we know it. With Israel for starters.

And thus prove faithful to his creed and in his megolomaniac fashion fulfill his destiny. He already spoke of his entrancing halo at the United Nations, how the 12th Imam, with whom he has a signed contract (thrown down the Jamaran well where the young 12th Imam disappeared 1,300 years ago), who speaks to him and guides his actions; how he has a mission to complete Khomeini's unfinished work of a global Islamic society without nations, borders or any other religion surviving the Islamic holocaust. Specially destroying all Christianity.

He has begun urging his countrymen to have lots of children - as he needs the cannon fodder - blithely ignoring the 400,000 homeless, starving, freezing in the winter, dying in the streets, children he has on his hands just in the capital city of Tehran. Nationwide, the number goes into the millions. Specially if you include the abandoned women, who live in the streets, surviving - like the children - as best they can. Ready to do anythig to have food inside them.

One of Iran's major exports has become prostitutes. From the vast reservoir of girls in Iran, who have only this option or suicide. Statitstics of suicides - boys and girls are horrific.

Three hotels in Dubei, owned by the Mullah regime, have nightly auctions in the basement, of Persian girls - for an hour, a night or depending on the price paid for longer. Islam permits temporary "concubine" type marriages along those lines, so the religious imperatives are obeyed in conducting this vile business.

For the girls, this offers a far better life than they would have on the streets or at a multitude of Mullah brothels inside Iran. All of which is the tip of the iceberg of the enslavement of women in Iran.

The hundreds of millions of dollars thrown away to terrorists in other countries, notably Hamas, Hezbollah and more recently in Eastern Europe and South America, would be better spent on looking after the street people that never existed prior to the Mullahs.

Family law under the Shah did not allow husbands the right to simply throw a wife into the street for disobeying their "lord and master" husband - as is the case under the Sharia Islamic laws under the Mullahs. And orphanages abounded under direct supervision of the royals, so children did not suffer in the streets of face cold and hunger.

In the good old days orphanage children were guaranteed work when they grew up, in some branch of government - often in the police force or other law enforcement agencies.

Critics will cite pomp and glory under the Shah while the country still had poverty. Which country does not?

But the weak and helpless were looked after - not thrown into dealing and using drugs (some 30% of the populace is reportedly in the user/dealercategory), forced into both male and female prostitution or with suicide the only remaining option.

Amazingly, there are Iranians (and others) in the USA and in Europe who adamently support Ahmadi-Nejad for "standing up to the West" and for "his principles", totally ignoring anything else than the simplistic charade he presents on behalf of the Mullahs.

SYRIA is the Key

Alan note: As the Western world scrambles for some kind of solution to the mosaic of Islamic clash with it, various hopes and opinions proliferate. Here is one of them. By Avi Primor - Syrian President Bashar Assad has good reasons to court Israel and ask it to return to the diplomatic negotiations that were stopped in March 2000. Israel has equally good reasons to accept the Syrian courtship. To ensure his political survival, Assad is aspiring to break out of the isolation into which he has been pushed by the United States, France and Israel. The Golan Heights is only the second priority for him. On this issue he is exempt from the emotional approach of his father, Hafez Assad, who lost the Heights in 1967. For the son, who was only two years old at the time, returning the Golan to Syrian control is only a means of glorifying his name and reinforcing his power. The alliance with Hezbollah and Iran serves the Syrian president in the short run. It is a passing tactical need. Hezbollah serves Assad as a convenient means for applying pressure to Israel from inside Lebanon without fear of Israeli retaliations and allows him to continue his involvement in Lebanon's domestic affairs, whereas Iran serves Syria as something on which it can rely in its isolation in the international arena and the Arab world. However, Syria does not have a long-term interest in a victory for Iran or for Hezbollah. Despite the control of the Alawite minority, Syria is not a Shi'ite country, and it has nothing to gain from strengthening the Shi'a in the Muslim world. It is not a Persian country, and therefore it has nothing to gain from the strengthening of Iranian influence in the region. Syria is also not a religious state, and, therefore, a victory by the Islamic fundamentalists is not good for the future of the Syrian Ba'athist rule. The extreme wing of Hamas, headed by Khaled Meshal, is also only a tactical tool in Syrian hands against Israel and the West. If the Syrian president decides that he no longer needs its services, he will not hesitate to expel it, as he did with the leader of the Turkish Kurds, Abdullah Ocalan, when he decided to improve his relations with Turkey. On September 24, 2006, the German weekly Der Spiegel published an interview with Assad in which the Syrian president answered among others the following three questions: Do you, an ally and friend of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, agree with him that the aim should be the destruction of the State of Israel? Assad replied: "No, I am interested in negotiations and achieving peace with Israel." The second question was: Hezbollah, your allies, are celebrating "the victory over Israel." What are the lessons you draw from the victory? Assad replied: "I am happy about the glorious victory, and I, too, am celebrating. The result of this victory is the hope of conducting negotiations with Israel." Finally, Assad was asked: Are you in favor of the Palestinians' right of return? And he replied: "Yes, of course. I see this as an elementary and humane right. It is necessary to allow all the Palestinian refugees who are interested in this to return to the Palestinian state that will be established in the future as the result of a peace agreement with Israel." These remarks speak for themselves, and they certainly constitute an opening for negotiations with Syria. Israel has a great deal to gain from a peace agreement with Syria. It will be followed almost automatically by a peace agreement with Lebanon, which will sign on the peace along with all its neighbors. Peace with Syria will lead to Syria breaking off with Hezbollah, to its separation from Hamas and to pushing Iran well back beyond its borders. Two questions remain for Israel, with which it will have to grapple: whether it is worthwhile to give up the Golan Heights, and whether it is necessary to take into account the objections on the part of the United States to negotiations with Syria. Many people in Israel are opposed to an agreement with Syria, on the assumption that giving up the Golan will bring us back to the difficult situation that once prevailed in the region. However, four Israeli prime ministers - Yitzhak Rabin, Shimon Peres, Benjamin Netanyahu and Ehud Barak - have already conducted negotiations with Syria on the basis of the principle of returning the Heights. A government that will dare today to enter into negotiations with Syria will indeed be taking a risk upon itself, but this is a calculated risk. It is reasonable to assume that when a detailed draft of a peace agreement is presented to the public, the negative outlook will change. Assad has made it clear that in the framework of a peace agreement with Israel, he is prepared to accept everything to which his father committed himself in his meeting with then U.S. president Bill Clinton in Geneva in March 2000, and in the messages that he is sending, he is stressing that in negotiations with him, he will be even more flexible than his father. It is to be presumed that he will not insist on all of the hundreds of meters on the shore of Lake Kinneret that separated his father from us, and that he will also agree to the demilitarization of the Golan under international supervision and perhaps even to Israeli oversight positions for an interim period. He wants to transform the Golan into a national park to which the Israelis will have free access without a need for visas. The Israeli who knows that he can get into his car and drive through the national park to Damascus to spend a weekend will see the relinquishing of the Golan differently than he does today. Top European diplomats who are talking to the Americans are reporting that the American objection to negotiations with Syria is less firm than it sounds from the official statements. The U.S. also has an interest in separating Syria from Iran and having Syria's help in calming the situation in Iraq. Presumably the recommendations of the Baker commission, which U.S. President George W. Bush appointed to examine the situation in Iraq, will also include more flexibility toward Syria. If we make it clear that negotiations with Syria are an Israeli interest, it is possible this will contribute even more to the moderation of the American objection. All that is needed today is a bit of courage, and an approach in which there is less domestic politics and more statesmanship on the horizon. The author is head of the Center for European Studies at the Herzliya Interdisciplinary Center and formerly Israel's ambassador to the European Union and ambassador in Germany.

Laugh till You Cry !!!!!

A guy who purchased his lovely wife a "pocket Taser" for their anniversary submitted this: Last weekend I saw something at Larry's Pistol & Pawn Shop that sparked my interest. The occasion was our 22nd anniversary and I was looking for a little something extra for my wife Toni. What I came across was a 100,000-volt, pocket/purse-sized taser. The effects of the taser were supposed to be short lived, with no long-term adverse affect on your assailant, allowing her adequate time to retreat to safety ... WAY TOO COOL! Long story short, I bought the device and brought it home. I loaded two triple-a batteries in the darn thing and pushed the button. Nothing! I was disappointed. I learned, however, that if I pushed the button AND pressed it against flesh or a metal surface at the same time, I'd get the blue arch of electricity darting back and forth between the prongs. Awesome! Unfortunately, I have yet to explain to Toni what that burn spot is on the face of her microwave. Okay, so I was home alone with this new toy, thinking to myself that it couldn't be all that bad with only two triple-a batteries, right? There I sat in my recliner, my cat Gracie looking on intently (trusting little soul) while I was reading the directions and thinking that I really needed to try this thing out on a flesh & blood moving target. I must admit I thought about zapping Gracie (for a fraction of a second) and thought better of it. She is such a sweet cat. But, if I was going to give this thing to my wife to protect herself against a mugger, I did want some assurance that it would work as advertised. Am I wrong? So, there I sat in a pair of shorts and a tank top with my reading glasses perched delicately on the bridge of my nose, directions in one hand, and taser in another. The directions said that a one-second burst would shock and disorient your assailant, a two-second burst was supposed to cause muscle spasms and a major loss of bodily control; a three-second burst would purportedly make your assailant flop on the ground like a fish out of water. Any burst longer than three seconds would be wasting the batteries. All the while I'm looking at this little device measuring about 5" long, less than 3/4 inch in circumference -- pretty cute, really, and loaded with two itsy, bitsy triple-a batteries -- thinking to myself, "No possible way!" What happened next is almost beyond description, but I'll do my best ... I'm sitting there alone, Gracie looking on with her head cocked to one side as to say, "Don't do it, master." Reasoning that a one-second burst from such a tiny little ole thing couldn't hurt all that bad, I decided to give myself a one-second burst just for the heck of it. I touched the prongs to my naked thigh, pushed the button, and HOLY MOTHER, WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION )*(&#(*)&)(#%)jld*(&#*#***!!! I'm pretty sure Jessie Ventura ran in through the side door, picked me up in the recliner, then body slammed us both on the carpet, over and over and over again. I vaguely recall waking up on my side in the fetal position, with tears in my eyes, body soaking wet, both nipples on fire, testicles nowhere to be found, with my left arm tucked under my body in the oddest position, and tingling in my legs. The cat was standing over me making meowing sounds I had never heard before, licking my face, undoubtedly thinking to herself, "Do it again! Do it again!" Note: If you ever feel compelled to "mug" yourself with a taser, one note of caution: there is no such thing as a one-second burst when you zap yourself. You will not let go of that thing until it is dislodged from your hand by a violent thrashing about on the floor. A three second burst would be considered conservative. SON-OF-A-B---H... That hurt like he-l! A minute or so later (I can't be sure, as time was a relative thing at that point), I collected my wits (what little I had left), sat up and surveyed the landscape. My bent reading glasses were on the mantel of the fireplace. How did they up get there? My triceps, right thigh and both nipples were still twitching. My face felt like it had been shot up with Novocain, and my bottom lip weighed 88 lbs. I'm still looking for my testicles. I'm offering a significant reward for their safe return.
Back to serious life in the next article (below) - from Defense and Foreign Affairs


Iranian Plan to Instigate Civil War in Lebanon Takes Bold First Step Analysis. By Gregory R. Copley, Editor, GIS, and Yossef Bodansky, Senior Editor, GIS. The assassination on November 21, 2006, of Lebanese anti-Syrian Maronite Christian Phalangist politician — Industry Minister Pierre Gemayel, 34, and his driver, Samir Shartuni — and the attempted murder of another anti-Syrian politician, State Minister for Parliamentary Affairs Michel Pharaon, were the first steps designed by the Iranian Government to trigger a full-scale civil war in Lebanon. There were clear indicators that the assassination was ordered by the Syrian Government, significantly on the day that the Iraqi Government of Prime Minister Nouri Maliki signed an accord with the Syrian Government to resume diplomatic relations between Iraq and Syria after a 26-year break, and only days before the planned visit by Iraqi Pres. Jalal Talabani was due to travel to Iran on Saturday, November 25, 2006, as part of an Iranian initiative — with Syria — to ensure that any regional initiatives would be undertaken without the participation of the United States. The message of the assassination of Pierre Gemayel, and the attempted assassination of Michel Pharaon, could not have been more clear. Moreover, the Lebanese Government of Prime Minister Fouad Siniora had already been depleted by the resignation of six pro-Syrian ministers, and with Gemayel's death, the resignation or death of two more ministers would bring down the Government. The November 21, 2006, assassination and attempted assassination were the latest provocations in a 10-day political crisis originally instigated by the HizbAllah once Tehran feared that the traditional political forces in Lebanon were coalescing to prevent the political ascent of the HizbAllah. By late October 2006, Lebanon’s leading politicians and political commentators were warning that the growing power of the HizbAllah amounted to the turning of Lebanon into an Iranian protectorate. Writing in the 26 October issue of An-Nahar, leading journalist Ali Hamadeh urged his countrymen to act “before Lebanon turns into one big prison under the watch of the Lebanese Revolutionary Guards”. Several authors in the Lebanese and London-based all-Arab media warned that the HizbAllah was planning a military coup since it had been unable to bring about political changes via democratic means. On November 11, 2006, HizbAllah exploited a government impasse over its demands for veto-power to order all five Shi’ite pro-Syrian ministers (two HizbAllah, two Amal, one independent) resign in protest. The Shi’ite leadership vowed to ensure that the Shi’a majority would rule Lebanon. “To pave the way for the majority to practice what it wants freely and so that we don’t cover what we are not convinced of ... we announce the resignation of our representatives in the current cabinet,” said a joint statement by HizbAllah and Amal regarding the ministers’ resignations. Concurrently, mobs started forming in the streets of Shi’ite southern Beirut demanding “justice”. The next day, HizbAllah deputy chief Sheikh Naim Kassem declared that HizbAllah intended to “take the streets in Lebanon” as the “first step” in a campaign aimed “to salvage the country from this mentality [of traditional Christian-Sunni power structure].” Meanwhile, the Sunni "al-Qaida Lebanon" threatened to destroy the Fouad Siniora Government because it was corrupt and took orders from the US Administration. Pro-Syrian Lebanese Pres. Emile Lahoud aggravated the crisis by interceding on behalf of the HizbAllah and al-Qaida. He endorsed the ministers’ resignation as signifying the fall of the Siniora Government. “Any cabinet meeting held by this [Siniora’s] government shall be absolutely illegal and unconstitutional because what is based on illegal grounds shall be considered null and void,” Lahoud said. To demonstrate Lahoud was serious, Environment Minister Yacoub Sarraf, Lahoud’s most loyal ally in the Government, resigned the next day shortly before the cabinet met. HizbAllah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah assumed leadership of the crisis on November 14, 2006. “This government will go,” he told supporters at a meeting. “We have no links to it after the resignation. There will be a new government” because Siniora's government now had “zero credibility” in the eyes of Lebanon’s Shi’ite majority. “There will soon be a clean government that will rebuild what the Israeli aggression has destroyed,” Nasrallah predicted. He did not dismiss the threat of the crisis escalating into street violence and even a civil war. “This country is our country, and we have sacrificed tens of thousands of fatalities, casualties, prisoners and mutilated individuals and our most prized possessions to protect it and its honor. We will not turn our backs on it and will uphold peace between the residents as well as stability.” Lebanese leaders reacted with fury to Nasrallah’s warnings. “This is a coup; this is a war between religious sects and a war between ethnic groups,” declared Mount Lebanon Mufti, Sheikh Dr Muhammad Ali al-Jozo, a Sunni. He warned that Nasrallah was eyeing the presidency. Druze leader Walid Jumblatt declared: “We will never surrender to HizbAllah” and warned of the gathering clouds of a new civil war. By now, Damascus was assuming the leadership of the crisis in Beirut. On November 16, 2006, Hassan Haydar warned, in an article in the influential Al-Hayah, about the growing rôle of Damascus: “Damascus has been summoning Shi’ite, Sunni, and Christian leaderships that enjoyed its assistance during its guardianship over Lebanon, to remind them that the time has come for them to pay the bill and entice them with a foothold in the coming stage. Damascus is the one coordinating the mobilization of the opposition and orchestrating its moves in conjunction with its supreme ally, Iran.” On November 19, 2006, Nasrallah addressed a massive rally and gave the Siniora Government an ultimatum on how to resolve the crisis. “There are two solutions: either the resignation of the Government or early parliamentary elections,” he declared. Nasrallah accused the Government of being a puppet off the United States. “We cannot have any confidence in this government because it answers to the decisions and wishes of the American administration," Nasrallah said. “We will not allow you [the Siniora Government] to continue ruling this country, because you are an American government. ... We want a national unity government in which all political sects take part and block external dictations ... and you will find out that we will not differ with you over primary issues.” Nasrallah did not expect the crisis to be resolved soon or peacefully. He told his followers to be ready for instructions to take to the streets. “We have to be psychologically prepared to take to the streets because we may send for you [in] 24 hours, or 12 hours, or even six hours,” Nasrallah said. “There has to be a patriotic opposition in the street; our action is peaceful and civilized.” Nasrallah warned the other political parties not to challenge the Shi’ite mob because this could only provoke riots. “We don’t want riots. We don’t want to clash or confront with the other [anti-Syrian] street,” Nasrallah said amidst chants to the contrary. “We want to respect private and public properties.” On November 20, 2006, in its main evening news, the HizbAllah’s Al-Manar TV warned about an impending crisis in its opening statement. “Awaiting the zero hour for the popular move that the Lebanese opposition intends to organize to attain its goal of toppling the Government of the US Ambassador in preparation for establishing a national unity government characterized by serious and actual participation in national decision-making to replace a government that implements a US agenda that stifles the spirit of accord and consultations, the opposition forces began their coordination meetings to lead this peaceful move. This move will observe the constitutional and legal rules and will take place in various places.” Al-Manar cited “HizbAllah sources”, explaining that “the time is running short for the ruling team” while “the opposition team is observing the confused reactions of the authority before making another move.” Al-Manar noted that a negotiated settlement of the brewing crisis was no longer possible because all the proposals which Hizballah had received “include nothing new or anything that might be different from the previous proposals of the authority”. During the rest of the evening, Al-Manar paraded virtually the entire leadership of the HizbAllah with all of them predicting the impasse to be broken soon and warning of unpredictable violence and civil war if HizbAllah’s “just demands” were not promptly met. It was now clear that the Syrian Government of Pres. Bashar al-Assad — acting in lock-step with the Iranian Government — now felt confident and ready to instigate a full return to civil war in Lebanon, a move which would trigger direct Iranian involvement and clear the way for Iranian forces to move more openly, with their logistical train, across Iraq following the anticipated Coalition military withdrawal from that country. A GIS/Defense & Foreign Affairs Daily report of November 9, 2006, entitled The Strategic Ramifications of the US Mid-Term Congressional Elections, noted: “[T]his particular [US] election came at a time of considerable global instability. This election result will be interpreted as an absolute victory by and for the Iranian clerics, and they will redouble their efforts accordingly. For example, the current Iranian military exercise, Great Prophet 2, which follows on from the long Blow of Zolfaghar exercises, has as a principal premise an Iranian military thrust through the Shi’a areas of Iraq to join up with Syria on the Mediterranean, against Israel and the West. Moreover, the Iraqi Government will interpret the results as a weakening of US resolve, and will anticipate that insurgent groups (virtually all of whom, knowingly or unknowingly, are supported by Iran) will become more daring. Israel and the entire Middle Eastern region will interpret the results as a weakening of US resolve in the region.” A Defense & Foreign Affairs Special Analysis report of November 7, 2006, by Yossef Bodansky, and entitled Iranian Military Exercises Continue, Parallel DPRK Exercises, and Highlight Access to Shi’ite Areas of Iraq noted: The structure and magnitude of the ground force maneuvers starting the night of November 5/6, 2006, simulated a major ground offensive against Israel in cooperation with locally-based terrorists. This phase of the exercise was still ongoing at the time of this report. However, a briefing by Pasdaran Brig.-Gen. Fazli about the launch of the ground offensive phase was significant. The objective of the offensive was to reach “up to 1,450 kilometers” into enemy territory, first by air strikes and ultimately by ground forces. In the first night, the Pasdaran leading elements infiltrated nearly 300 km, using light vehicles while passing through friendly area [that is, simulating the Shi’ite-populated parts of Iraq]. Meanwhile, the Iranians started deploying élite forces simulating operations into the deep rear of the enemy in coordination with “local troops” [that is, local jihadist forces]. “Some 1,800 self-sufficient teams, Saberin Special Forces, air units and executive teams also gave full logistical support to the [local] troops in surrounding and demolishing the enemy’s forces in the region,” Brig.-Gen. Fazli briefed. Meanwhile, Lebanese sources were quick, on November 21, 2006, to identify who they felt was the political instrument behind the assassination of Pierre Gemayel and the other attacks. Chamber of Deputies member Assaad Halim Hardan, 55, a Greek Orthodox politician, and Chief of the Central Political Bureau of the Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP), a Lebanon-based party, was accused by the Lebanese Foundation for Peace of being a key Syrian instrument in the act. Gunmen had opened fire on Pierre Gemayel’s convoy as it drove through the Christian Sin el-Fil neighborhood of Beirut. Gemayel was wounded in the attack, but later died of his wounds in hospital. Pierre Gemayel’s uncle, Bashir Gemayel, was killed in September 1982 after he was elected President of Lebanon during Israel’s invasion of the country. On November 21, 2006, Saad al-Hariri, son of assassinated former Prime Minister Rafik al-Hariri, said: “We believe the hand of Syria is all over the place.” Significantly, the combination of moves — the assassinations in Beirut, the Iraqi recognition of Syria, and the forthcoming mini-summit in Iran between Iraq, Iran, and Syria — all portend badly for Saudi influence in the region, and a possible, or probable, new civil war in that country would be seen as a major failure of Saudi strategic influence. Pierre Gemayel’s father and former president, Amin Gemayel, immediately following the assassination resisted the provocation for the Maronite Christians to respond to the attack, and called for restraint from his followers and for prayer. Clearly, the decision to undertake the highly-symbolic assassinations was made at the highest levels in Tehran and Damascus, but with the intention of causing a violent reaction from the Phalangists and other anti-Syrian elements in Lebanon, without the principal Shi’a ally of Iran, HizbAllah, being seen as having initiated the new civil war.

Each minor received 448 lashes, 14 months torture in jail and on July 19th, 2005, they were sent to gallows. A large crowd witnessed it all in Mash'had, Iran.

Remember ancient Roman gladiators and blood sports? This is the Iranian version of entertaining and warning the populace. Some 4,000 Gays and Lesbians have eventually been executed, much to their relief, after the treatment they suffered between arrest and death, since the Khomeini "Islamic" revolution of 1979 Islam, the religion of peace or body pieces?


ALAN NOTE: "Ignorance is bliss" and in sending a message to the Bush Administration that they were unhappy with them, Americans also sent a much more dangerous message to the terrorists: "the time to attack is nearly here". For all of you Republicans who did not vote or voted Democrat for the first time in your lives - upon your ignorant heads be it when we get hit again on our own shores or at our official locations overseas. Nor are the Independents, who also showed ignorance of what the world - as opposed to inside the USA - is all about, exempt from responsibility. You have given the crowd, which wanted the war in Iraq to go badly, so that they could bash Bush, the opportunity to make matters a thousand times worse and instead of a few thousand of us being killed or wounded over there, have tens, perhaps hundreds of thousands of us endangered in our homes, inside our own country. I fervently wish to be wrong but every indicator, including the emboldened reaction of terrorists points to my being right. Unless of course, "cowboy" Bush again comes to the rescue of his "ranch" (USA), "cattle" (finances) and "hands" (all of us) and takes drastic steps before he leaves office. Knowing what I know and the article below is just a sliver of that, my comment is not party partisan - just a matter of survival in this clash of cultures and religions - that has begun to make the Crusades look like a cross border raid by contrast. Perhaps the most insiduous development INSIDE the USA is the number of Moslem "madrasseh" (schools) that have mushroomed up. In Southern California for instance, mosques with Islamic schools attached have increased from a few dozen to FEW HUNDRED. Some indicators put this into over 1,000 locations just in this area. Each apparently preaching sedition, death and destruction almost without exception. Sedition by demanding everyone follow Allah, not the law of the land. By Walid PharesNovember 22, 2006 The latest audio by al Qaeda's Iraq commander -- posted 48 hours after the midterm elections -- sends a clear signal to the readers of the jihadi strategic mind: Al Qaeda and its advisers around the world want to provoke an "American Madrid." Portraying the United States as a bleeding bull in disarray, the war room projects its wish to see America's will crippled. The video attempts to do the following: 1. Convince the jihadists that the United States is now defeated in Iraq and beyond. While no reversal of the balance of power has taken place on the ground, the jihadi propaganda machine is linking the shift in domestic politics to a withdrawal from Iraq. It projects the change in Washington as a crumbling of the political process in Baghdad and America's foreign policy. Interestingly, others in the region are also "announcing" the upcoming defeat of America in the war on terror. Hezbollah's Hassan Nasrallah declared: "The Americans are leaving, and their allies will pay the price." 2. Spread political chaos at home. Jihadists portray the Democratic takeover of Congress and the resignation of Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld (and maybe others) as signs of American weakening in the resolve to fight jihadism. The video had a potential to frustrate U.S. citizens if it is not accurately interpreted by experts. Americans may end up believing that the message reflects the situation in the Middle East and that it is a logical outcome of a faulty U.S. policy. If the Bush administration and the new congressional leaders do not respond adequately to the video, some "chaos" of this sort may ensue. 3. The terminology used in the videotape is a powerful indicator that al Qaeda's political network relies on Western-educated minds, familiar with political processes in the United States and serving as advisers to the jihadists. A regular al Qaeda emir does not use the term "lame duck." It is more likely that a U.S.-based cadre, who understands the impact of political jargon on domestic audiences, had suggested the use of this word. Abu Hamza al Muhajir's use of the term batta arjaaa (lame duck) is striking to any native speaker of Arabic. This term does not exist in Arab culture, let alone in jihadi rhetoric. Its use is yet another proof of the Americanization jihad has undergone. Thus, Iraq's al Qaeda is using the term as a weapon -- something most likely requested by the jihadi brains operating on the other side of the Atlantic. So what do the speechwriters want to achieve with these kinds of tapes? They aim at sapping American public morale during a time when reorganization is taking place in the U.S. government. Reading from the jihadi wishful thinking, the audiotape of al Muhajir and the statements made by other radical Islamists send the following message: Americans are being thanked for removing Mr. Bush's party from the leadership of Congress, which the jihadists attribute to the war on terror rather than U.S. domestic problems. Al Qaeda's audio tells citizens in the United States that they were wise for having responded positively to the previous messages by Osama bin Laden. Al Masri's words aim at convincing the American public to pressure their newly elected legislators to pull U.S. forces hastily from Iraq. In short, al Qaeda wants an American Madrid: it wishes that a change of power in January would be accompanied by a change of national determination, not just a change of course within Iraq. In the Salafis chat rooms, the commissaries explained to their audiences, that the Democratic Party victory in Congress means that America is now divided and al Qaeda can push to create more cracks in the system -- as it has successfully done in Spain. The masters of the forum, emulating al Masri's audiotape, said not only that "we got their soldiers on the run in Iraq," but "we got their citizens on the run on their own soil" referring to the November electoral outcome. They promised that with more killings in Iraq, they will break the will of Americans at home; and that the new Congress, seeking to fulfill one of its electoral promises will force the Bush administration to pack up and leave the Middle East. In Washington, both the administration and the new congressional leaders failed to seriously respond to the al Qaeda message. Grave mistake; for ignoring the speech would help convincing the jihadists that America is divided and crumbling and would embolden them to strike further, not only in Iraq but also inside the United States. The silent treatment works in favor of the Salafi combatants: It only leads them to believe that they are right and that their strategy is working; just as Allah had crushed the Soviets in Afghanistan, he has divided the Americans. It is, therefore, imperative that Washington strikes back in a unified manner at every opportunity that arises. It must tell the dreamers of a terror caliphate that American democracy will not serve as a weapon to defeat freedom worldwide.

Another Example of Islam the Religion of PEACE!

by Grant Swank Newsangst: Muslims Behead Christian Teen November 03, 2006 01:00 PM EST An Assyrian Christian teen in Iraq has been beheaded while at his work. He was murdered by Muslims because he is a Christian. ALAN NOTE: In Iran, too, Christians, including Assyrians, are being accosted and killed simply for being Christians. By the followers of that great "religion of peace" - Islam! Unconfirmed reports also cite statistics of about 1,000 Jews of the 25,000 still left in Iran, also having been rounded up and murdered in the last couple of weeks. By the Iranian followers of that great "religion of peace" - Islam! Who have also conducted a census type head count and identified all the Bahais in Iran over the past few months, during which time over 50 or so were reportedly arrested and killed. And during the same time frame a whole bunch of Suffis had their places of worship destroyed and about an estimated dozen tortured then killed. All in the name of "Islam", the so called religion of peace! Religion of human body Pieces, not peace would be a more appropriate appelation. Per Dr. Jeremy Reynalds of dispatched from San Francisco, CA, this Assyrian believer had reported to his job when accosted by fanatics. The Assyrian International News Agency informed media feeds that the 14-year-old Christian, Ayad Tariq, from Baqouba, Iraq, was killed while employed at his 12-hour work shift. Tariq oversaw an electric generator operation. While on shift, "a group of disguised Muslim insurgents walked in at the beginning of his shift shortly after 6 a.m. and asked him for his ID." "According to another employee who witnessed the events, and who hid when he saw insurgents approach, the insurgents questions Ayad after seeing that his ID noted he was a ‘Christian.’ The insurgents asked the boy if he was really a ‘Christian sinner.’" When Muslims question a Christian prior to killing them, it is to see if the Christian will recant. If the Christian does not give up on allegiance to Christ as Savior, then that believer is murdered by Islamic zealots. It is part of their mission in depopulating the world of Christians by slaying them. The overall goal is Islam World Rule. "Ayad reportedly replied, ‘Yes, I am Christian, but I am not a sinner.’ The insurgents immediately said, ‘dirty Christian sinner!’" What the teen was trying to explain is that a Christian is a mortal forgiven of his sins by the Savior Christ. Therefore, once a sinner, now a repentant sinner, the believer is a member of God’s grace family. However, the Muslims intent on killing Ayad did not care about specifics concerning Christian doctrine; they were out to depopulate the Earth of still another Christian. "Then they proceeded to each hold one of the boy's limbs, ‘Allahu akbar! Allahu akbar!’ while beheading him." Muslim carnage against Christians has so increased in Iraq that most Christians have fled Iraq for safety elsewhere. The Christian church has been depleted of many of its stalwart members. They see no way out of the present Muslim daily murder sprees taking place from one end of Iraq to another. Priests, evangelists, and pastors have been killed while going to hold services in their churches. There is no safe ground for any Christian leadership in Iraq today. "Internet terror expert Glen Jenvey ( said in an e-mail interview that if Christians are routinely forced to carry identification cards stating their faith, then thousands of Iraqi Christians are living in fear because of their ID's. And that, Jenvey said, is ‘horrendous.’" "The web site is a ‘Chaldean Assyrian Syriac Site with news and articles’. "AINA was responsible for providing the translation from Arabic for the news article." ALLAH: "Fight, slay Unbelievers wherever ye find them. Seize them, beleaguer them, lie in wait for them in every stratagem of war." Qur'an, Sura 9:5 CHRIST: For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16

Take a look at the dates next to these articles and see how long ago I was describing and sending out warnings about what is just now hitting the air waves and TV documentaries. On both leftist and rightist sides of the issues - Fox News and CNN - for example. (Click on the links below each one to go to that article). (ALSO check out "Soft Intel " articles on News Round-ups" page) General situation briefing on Iran. For those who ask why Iran has not used nukes if they already have them and are making such a fuss about creating new ones, use common sense. A half dozen nukes, even in nose cones on mid-range missiles, create a certain amount of deterrence or damage and could wipe out Israel. But would not suffice to prevent everyone THEN piling on a suddenly "naked" (nukeless) Iran. Iran needs many more than that to stand off the armaments of the rest of the world that is poised at them. Imagine the situation as having a six-shot revolver and no other ammunition with which to reload and then going up against a whole gaggle of tough enemies. 4/09/06 Iran's Nukes 4/17/06 REVISED Think Iran - Think Hojatieh 4/23/06 IRAN - JUSTIFIED FINAL SOLUTION 5/06/06 WHAT WOULD LOSING THE FIGHT TO ISLAM MEAN? 5/10/06 THE OIL STORY - REVISITED

Will the Dems rock the Dollar ?- Buffet and Soros may hope so.

Buffet and Soros have both been betting against the US Dollar - meaning they bet on it to drop - and make money in the billions if it does.

China, as a warning shot across the bows of the Democrats coming into power, not to meddle in the current trade agreements, sold off a tiny bit of the $700 Billion they hold. And temporarily quivered the Dollar value.

More on this in my broader ranging article in the very near future.

Meanwhile, take a look at what these two big boys in the finance world are doing and get a clue of their strategies.

1. Buffett's Latest Portfolio Moves

2. Soros Takes Major Stake in AMD, Chipotle, and Cisco

3. Manufacturing Shows Unexpected Signs of Strength

4. Fed's Poole: Aging Population May Curb Economy

1. Buffett's Latest Portfolio MovesWarren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway made some adjustments to its investment portfolio in the third quarter, reducing its stake in some and adding shares in others, according to regulatory filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

First, let's look at the cutbacks: Target, Anheuser-Busch, and H&R Block.Berkshire just disclosed its stake in Target at the end of October, buying 5.5 million shares or $268 million worth of the nation's second largest discount retailer in the second quarter.

But just as quickly, Berkshire sold off about 4.75 million shares, bringing its stake in Target to just 745,700 shares.Target announced yesterday a 16 percent jump in third quarter profits to 59 cents per share, beating expectations.

Analysts surveyed by Thomson Financial were expecting earnings to come in at 55 cents a share.

Berkshire sold 7.11 million shares in Anheuser-Busch, the world's largest brewer, after making an initial investment of 44.7 million shares or 5.7 percent of the company last year. Berkshire's remaining investment was 36.4 million at the end of September.

Berkshire cut its stake in tax preparer H&R Block, reducing shares to 10.97 million from 11.93 million.

Now, let's look at where the company added to its positions: Lowe's, Nike, and Iron Mountain.Berkshire made a significant increase in its stake in home-improvement retailer Lowe's, boosting the amount of shares from 390,000 to 6.79 million.

Lowe's and Home Depot, Lowe's main competitor, have both cut their earnings outlook in the face of the housing slump. Buffett owns 4.18 million of Home Depot stock, too. Apparently, Buffett thinks now's the time to buy.

The company also hiked its stake in Nike, the world's biggest athletic-shoe maker, from 2.47 million shares to 4 million shares. Berkshire added a million shares of Iron Mountain, the largest seller of records-management services, to its portfolio, raising its stake to 6 million shares.Berkshire Hathaway also gained 10 million shares of Western Union as part of its spinoff from First Data Corp. in September.

2. Soros Takes Major Stake in AMD, Chipotle, and CiscoLike Warren Buffett, billionaire investor George Soros disclosed his savvy investment moves in SEC filings.

Soros's hedge fund added to its equities position by taking major stakes in a few companies.Soros Fund Management LLC increased its equities investments by 38 percent in the third quarter, investing nearly $2.9 billion, according to the filings.

Soros bought a $20 million stake in Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) and an $11 million position in Chipotle Mexican Grill, which recently spun off from parent company McDonalds.

The fund also added to its position in Cisco Systems, bringing the investment to $30 million worth of shares from $2.4 million worth in the second quarter, a 1,150 percent increase in the stake.

Soros also decided that some energy companies are a bargain right now, while others are not. The Soros fund invested $42 million in Occidental Petroleum and $31 million in Valero Energy.

However, the fund sold $15 million worth of shares in both Massey Energy Corp. and Pioneer Natural Resources.

Soros seemingly has mixed feelings about health-care companies too. His fund picked up $12 million worth of shares in health benefits company WellPoint, and sold $22 million worth of the iShares Nasdaq Biotech Index.

Soros also sold his entire $2.5 million stake in Yahoo, in favor of buying a $2 million stake in rival Google.

The hedge fund also invested $18 million in McData Corp's convertible debt.The filings don't include short positions.

3. Manufacturing Shows Unexpected Signs of Strength

Manufacturing activity in New York state rose further in November with the overall index increasing to a reading of 26.66 from an unrevised 22.92 in October, surprising analysts.

The median expectation of 14 economists surveyed by Dow Jones Newswires was for a falloff to a reading of 15.50.The Bank said Wednesday in its Empire State Manufacturing Survey that "conditions for New York manufacturers improved at an accelerated pace in November."

The index only began to be compiled in July 2001, but has gained market attention as a precursor of the Philadelphia Fed's manufacturing index (due to be released at noon EST on Thursday), which is itself seen as a proxy for the Institute for Supply Management's national manufacturing survey.

If the Empire State Survey were calculated on an ISM basis it would have a positive reading of 58.6 (compared with a reading of 56.8 in October).Alan Ruskin, chief international strategist at RBS Greenwich Capital in Greenwich, Conn., said the Empire State survey supported the view that the slowing of the national economy is not accelerating.

That's important because of recent market fears that the national ISM index will slip below 50 soon, which indicates contraction, Ruskin said in an e-mail note.

The November reading for the Empire State new orders index rose to a reading of 22.38 compared with 11.75 in October, while the shipments index increased to 26.63 from 22.54.

The unfilled orders index moved back into positive territory with a reading of 10.24 compared with a reading of negative 1.51 in October. Inventories, meanwhile, moved further into positive territory with a reading of 3.77, compared to 2.50 in October.

The prices paid index increased to a reading of 34.90 compared with 30.83 in October, while the prices received index decreased to a reading of 16.98 from 17.50 in October, showing that manufacturers are still facing higher costs which they are having trouble passing on in the form of higher prices.

The employment indexes were mixed. The number of employees rose to a reading of 24.50 from 19.39 in October, while the average employee workweek slipped to a reading of 12.64 from 14.44 in October.

The index measuring expectations six months from now increased to a reading of 37.76 from 30.17 in September.© 2006 Associated Press.

4. Fed's Poole: Aging Population May Curb Economy

The aging U.S. workforce and a declining number of people who want to work may hit economic growth and make the U.S. central bank's job harder, St. Louis Federal Reserve Bank President William Poole said Tuesday."

If actual employment growth slows, we will have to make the judgment as to whether the slowing is consistent with a slowing of trend labor force growth or is a sign of impending recession," Poole told the Chartered Financial Analysts Society of Philadelphia.

A copy of his speech was made available to the media prior to delivery.Poole, who is a voter on the U.S. central bank's policy-setting committee, said there was a clear consensus that the retirement of the baby boom generation and a decline in the U.S. labor force participation rate would curb the economy's potential for growth.

He also warned there was a wide degree of uncertainty over the scale of the decline, with important implications for the Federal Reserve as it tries to juggle its dual mandate to ensure price stability and sustainable long-term employment."

If employment growth next year remains only modestly below this year's average pace of about 150,000 per month, we will have to make the judgment as to whether this growth is outrunning available labor, which would be the case if we accept the low estimate of trend labor force growth, or whether one of the higher estimates of trend labor force growth is being realized," he said.

The Fed halted a two-year campaign of gradual interest rate hikes in August and has left its key overnight federal funds rate target at 5.25 percent at its two subsequent meetings, while warning that it remains on high alert over inflation.

Lower energy prices have curbed consumer prices since the Fed stopped hiking rates, while the pace of economic expansion slowed sharply in the third quarter.But the level of non-food, non-energy inflation remains a concern for the Fed, while a drop in the unemployment rate in October to 4.4 percent has sparked concern that the U.S. labor market may be already too tight, and that further hiring could spark wage inflation.

Working out what is a "normal" level of job creation, and what could be too hot, is a key task for policy-makers and it is getting much more complicated, Poole said."

With the baby boom generation starting to retire, we'll have to change our view of normal job creation. Not to do so will invite a serious misperception of the state of the labor market," he said. (Reuters).

I'm a Terrorist - so what? Deal with it! I have nukes. And making some more.

Terrorist President of Terrorist Islamic Regime of Iran
Terrorist President photo on left taken around 1979

The Russian publication Kommersant has published a newly located photograph of a U.S. hostage-taker in Iran circa 1979 bearing a striking resemblance to President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

The Iranian leader has steadfastly denied he was involved in the takeover of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran and the holding of 52 Americans for 444 days despite assertions to the contrary of some of those hostages and former Iranian President Abholhassan Bani-Sadr, who says he was a ringleader and the liaison with Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini. Charges by the ex-hostages were made shortly after Ahmadinejad came to power June 24, 2005.

But from the beginning, the White House and State Department made it clear they would rather not know the truth about Ahmadinejad because it would place the U.S. in a position of refusing to permit a head of government into the country to attend U.N. meetings. One official said such a finding would "enormously complicate" matters.

U.S. "investigators" never bothered to interview any of the former hostages who made the charges against the Iranian leader.

Perhaps the most damning evidence against Ahmadinejad with regard to the hostage-taking came from Bani-Sadr, Iran's president during the early days of the Khomeini revolution.

He has adamantly affirmed Ahmadinejad was one of the kidnappers who held 52 Americans for 444 days. He said the former student leader was in the embassy throughout the hostage crisis.

(Alan note: a Discovery Channel documentary on the Hostage Crisis, Part 2, in the scene of the "Christmas party for the hostages, clearly has a few seconds of the younger Ahmadi-Nejad, sitting in on the occasion).

"Ayatollah Khomeini's deputy, Ayatollah Khamenei, demanded of him a constant report on what is happening in the embassy," he said.

When told Ahmadinejad denied the accusation, Bani-Sadr laughed.

"What do you want?" he said. "That he should not deny it?

I was president, and I know the details, and I am telling you for sure that he was there, though his role was not organizational. He was the chief reporter to Khamenei."

Sadr added that Ahmadinejad initially opposed the hostage-taking but changed his mind once Khomeini gave his support.

At least six former American hostages agree the president of Iran played a key role in interrogating and abusing them.

Chuck Scott characterized his tormentor as "cold, hard-nosed" and said his memory is solid, "as sure as I'm sitting here."

"If you went through a traumatic experience like that and you were around people who made it possible, you're never going to forget them," said Scott, a 73-year-old retired U.S. Army colonel.

Scott said he recognized him almost instantly during the publicity surrounding his election in June, when he shocked the world by winning in an upset.

Former hostage Don Sharer identified Ahmadinejad as a student leader who called Americans "pigs and dogs."

Ahmadinejad acknowledges membership in the radical student organization that stormed the embassy when he was 23.

"He was in the background, like an adviser," recalled Sharer, a former U.S. Navy officer. "He called us pigs and dogs and said we deserved to be locked up forever."

Scott called him "a leader, what I would call a hard-a--. Even the other guards said he was very strict."

"The new president of Iran is a terrorist," said Scott.

Sharer said Ahmadinejad was an interrogator and remembers being personally grilled by him.

"He was involved in interrogating me the day we were taken captive," said former Marine security guard Kevin Hermening.

"There is absolutely no reason the United States should be trying to normalize relations with a man who seems intent on trying to force-feed the world with state-sponsored terrorism." William Daugherty, another former hostage, concurs that Ahmadinejad was there. He claims he saw him eight to 10 times in the first 19 days of captivity before the hostages were separated into smaller groups.

"As soon as I saw the face, it rang a lot of bells to me, and it was a recent picture, but he still looks like a man, take 20 years off of him, he was there. He was there in the background."

David Roeder, the embassy's former deputy Air Force attache, also said Ahmadinejad was present during one of his interrogations.

"It was almost like he was checking on the interrogation techniques they were using in a sort of adviser capacity," Roeder said.

Sharer added: "He was extremely cruel. He is one of the hardliners, so that tells you what their government is going to stand for in the next four to five years."

In addition to Bani-Sadr and the hostages, BBC correspondent John Simpson also recalled seeing Ahmadinejad on the embassy grounds.

SUBMIT TO ISLAM OR DIE - True in Ancient Times, Still in Effect

Apologies for the gap in my postings but circumstances and the USA elections interrupted matters. New articles on the News Round-Ups Page are up and some Bilinguals will follow within24-hours.

Also posting a broad reaching editorial addressing the changes the USA elections have made or have failed to change in the Middle East. Should be ready in the next couple of days. Today's Islamic troubles really all began at this point in history. English text and Farsi link thanks to "GardunehMehr" PLEASE note how the centuries old ultimatum below is almost EXACTLY what the Islamic Jihadists are saying to the Western world TODAY. [Text of the ultimatum from Omar Ibn-Khat'tab the Calif of Islam to the Iranian Sovereign Yazdgerd III] Bism-ellah Ar'rahman Ar'rhim To the Shah of the Farsi Do not foresee a good future for you and your nation without your acceptance of my terms and your submission to me. There was a time when your country ruled half the world, but see how now your sun has set. On all fronts your armies have been defeated and your nation is condemned to extinction. I point out to you the path whereby you might escape this fate. Namely, that you begin worshipping the one god, the unique deity, the only god who created all that is. I bring you his message. Order your nation to cease the false worship of fire and to join us, that they may join the truth. Worship Allah the creator of the world. Worship Allah and accept Islam as the path of salvation. End now your polytheistic ways and become Muslims that you may accept Allah-u-Akbar as your saviour. This is the only way of securing your own survival and the peace of your Persians. You will do this if you know what is good for you and for your Persians. Submission is your only option. Allah u Akbar The Calif of Muslims Omar Ibn-Khat'tab [What follows is response of the Persian King.] In the name of Ahuramazda the Creator of Life and Wisdom. From the Shahan-Shah of Iran, Yazdgerd. To Omar Ibn Khat'tab the Arab Calif. In your letter you summon us Iranians to your god whom you call "Allah-u-Akbar"; and because of your barbarity and ignorance, and without knowing who we are and Whom we worship, you demand that we seek out your god and become worshippers of "Allah-u-Akbar". How strange that you occupy the seat of the Arab Calif but are as ignorant as any desert roaming Arab! You admonish me to become monotheistic in faith. Ignorant man, for thousands of years we Aryans have, in this land of culture and art, been monotheists and five times a day have we offered prayers to God's Throne of Oneness. While we laid the foundations of philanthropy and righteousness and kindness in this world and held high the ensign of "Good Thoughts, Good Words and Good Deeds", you and your ancestors were desert wanderers, who . . . buried your innocent daughters alive. How dare you Arabs who have no regard for God's creatures, who mercilessly put people to the sword, who mistreat your women and bury your daughters alive, who attack caravans and are highway robbers, who commit murder, who kidnap women and spouses, presume to preach the worship of God to us, who are above these evils? You tell me to cease the worship of fire and to worship "Allah-u-Akbar" instead! We Iranians are by the light of fire reminded of the Light of God. The radiance and the sun-like warmth of fire exuberates our hearts, and the pleasant warmth of it brings our hearts and spirits closer together, that we may be philanthropic, kind and considerate; that gentleness and forgiveness may become our way of life,and that thereby the Light of God may shine on in our hearts. Our God is the Great Ahuramazda. . . .We are nothing like you. We, in the name of Ahuramazda, practice compassion and love and goodness and righteousness and forgiveness, and care for the dispossessed and the unfortunate. But you, in the name of your "Allah-u-Akbar" commit murder, create misery and subject people to suffering! Tell me truly who is to blame for your misdeeds? Your "Allah-u-Akbar" who orders genocide, plunder and destruction, or you who do these things in his name? Or both? You, who have spent all your days in brutality and barbarity, have now come out of your desolate deserts resolved to impose, by the blade and by conquest, the worship of "Allah-u-Akbar" on a people who have for thousands of years been civilizedand have relied on culture and knowledge and art as mighty supports. What have you, in the name of your "Allah-u-Akbar", taught these armies of Islam besides destruction and pillage and murder that you now presume to summon others to your "Allah-u-Akbar"? Today, my people's fortunes have changed. Their armies, who were subjects of Ahuramazada, have now been defeated by the Arab armies of "Allah-u-Akbar". And they are being forced, at the point of the sword, to convert to the god by the name of"Allah-u-Akbar" and offer him prayers in Arabic since your Arabic god only understands Arabic. I advise you to return to your lizard infested deserts. Do not let loose upon our cities your cruel barbarous Arabs who are like rabid animals. Refrain from the murder of my people. Refrain from pillaging my people. Refrain from kidnapping our daughters in the name of your "Allah-u-Akbar". Refrain from these crimes and evils. We Aryans are a forgiving people, a kind and well-meaning people. Wherever we go, we sow the seeds of goodness, amity and righteousness. And this is why we have the capacity to overlook the crimes and the misdeeds of your Arabs. Stay in your desert with your "Allah-u-Akbar", and do not approach our cities; for horrid is your belief and brutish is your conduct. Yazdgerd Saasaani
