Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Israel: "The Zionists are very much, very adventuresome, very much seeking to fabricate things"

Coming up this evening at 9 p.m., "Piers Morgan Tonight" welcomes Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the president of Iran, for a rare, and candid, face to face conversation.

As part of an interview that comes on the backdrop of this week's United Nations General Assembly meeting, Piers Morgan asks how Iran would respond upon facing an attack from nearby Israel:

"The response of Iran is quite clear, I don’t even need to explain that; any question in any nation has the right and will indeed defend herself," says Iran's 6th president.

You are taking his words out

You are taking his words out of context. He never said that. He HAS made it clear that Israel would be defeated if it tried to F with his nation. So tired of the anti Muslim dishonesty.

I don't want to defend him because

Ahmadinejad seems reprehensible on multiple fronts, but did you listen to the interview? He clarified that he was referring to occupation and the current Israeli regime. That is different. I also have heard independent accounts over a span of many months that this was closer to his response.

I think it was part 2 where

I think it was part 2 where he was railing about not intervening in the "internal affairs of other nations"

Just beginning to watch...did

Just beginning to watch...did the translater misinterpret him right away when he said 'if at the end of the day you decide to not like me, please don't pass that on to the rest of the people of the United States...didn't he mean the rest of the people of Iran? That would make more sense -seems like it might have been an error.

I took it to mean

if Piers personally didn't like him, don't project that feeling on everyone else & don't report on him with that bias. That's IMO only...

yes that's how I understood it

There seemed to be 2 other incidents like that in the interview where in Ahmadinejad seemed to correct Piers's for trying to speak for the entire country or an entire group. Much of his answers seemed to be careful not to speak for anyone or to collectivize anyone.

I keep seeing articles

all over the web with rumors of war with Iran starting on The Yom Kippur holiday. I found it really hard to believe until I did some research, and Israel recently went to war on Yom Kippur in 1973 with Egypt, see: http://www.historylearningsite.co.uk/yom_kippur_war_of_1973.htm <=== The Yom Kippur War of 1973. With Akmadinijad (over look my spelling) in NY, perhaps that roomer holds a little water? Watching the interview now.

“When a well-packaged web of lies has been sold gradually to the masses over generations, the truth will seem utterly preposterous and its speaker a raving lunatic.” – Dresden James

Ahmadinejad is not some good guy

He's not the evil monster some are trying to paint him as either. The answer lies somewhere in the middle. He is obviously not pro American, pro American policies or pro western culture understandably. His allegiance and affinity is to his own country, religion and culture. He is motivated by self interest and the interest of his country. Hardly insane. He comes across as rational though at odds with the west. I don't believe he wishes the American people themselves ill nor the the Israelis, but he is understandably against they're governments meddling in his countries affairs and those of his middle eastern allies. Like any country in the same position they will defend themselves if attacked but they do not come across as wanting to attack anyone else as their history has shown. They seem to adhere to the principles of non intervention. Can Iran and the USA get along or find common ground? Maybe, maybe not. I don't think they particularly seek a relationship with us, but I also don't believe they want to go to war with us or anyone else.

After all is said and done, he is still a politician and with any politician words should never be taken at face value. They must be matched with action and history. I do not agree with the man nor do I vilify him. I respect Iran's sovereignty and wish no harm on their country. Hopefully tensions will die down and we all can take a step back from our precarious war stances. It is in no ones favor to start anything over there, besides war profiteering scum that is. Live and let live. May cooler heads prevail.

true, but neocons can make ANYONE look "good"

Sorry, but there is no 'the West', in fact here's barely

A 'United' of states and a collapsing Europe.

"The West" is really the globalist NWO and they are the biggest anti-Western people in world history. They're anti-western culture, religion, resources, history, law, PEOPLE (pro immigration).

Your analysis is at least 60 years behind the ball.

I apologize, I used the term "the west" for convience sake

Of course as you say there is no such thing. Just a concept that is traditionally used to refer to US/European governments, cultures and policies. As you mention "the west" is far more nuanced than that and those in power of "the west" do not always act in favor its traditional values and culture and in some cases are actively sabotaging them.

The fact remains though that Iran is against much of those policies, activities and much of the culture emanating from such countries, cultures and power structures. It is Iran's sovereign right to do so, whether right or wrong. That does not necessarily make Ahmadinejad nor Iran a friend nor an enemy.

Excellent analysis

Very well said.

all i can find is clips....cant wait for the full thing.

Another Undeclared Humanitarian War...?

The ought to be a furor vis-à-vis humanitarian—
As an adjective before war—it defies Reason.
I’m sorry—only an idiot says “humanitarian war;”
I say—if war is humane—humanity is no more!

Now—Mr. Netanyahu is mincing his words re frustration—
With US ME policy—uh oh—Iranian confrontation...?
Will Mr. Obama seek Congressional authorization...?
Or will he act unilaterally—and attack the Iranians...?

Our civilian "generals" repeatedly subject our military
To the random whims of UN bureaucratic stupidity,
And European security interests—please—not again...
I’m sick of war—and I’m sick of being played like a violin!

T Kosciuszko

As long as war is a word in the Human vocabulary,
Inhumane will be standing by its side—that is reality!

Human freedom is Imagination's most precious possession.

This Ahmadinejad interview w/@piersmorgan is one of the most fascinating I've ever seen.

Who's voting this up?

This is the guy that says Homosexuals don't exist in his country,

this is the guy that wants Israel eliminated,

this is the guy that is ready to proliferate nuclear arms despite signing the non nuclear proliferation treaty,

this is the guy that censors the internet.

Ahmadinejad is a nut.

Not

so much thinking they're voting it up because they love Ahmadinejad....they want to be able to hear the other side of the story.

You could in a roundabout way argue that the US led to the rise of him....if we hadn't meddled and overthrew their government back in the 50's...we might not even know the guys name.

Ahmadinejad also doesn't have authority over the military of Iran...that falls into the hands of the supreme leader...which he isn't.

Iran also hasn't attacked another country in over 200 years....how many have we invaded in just the last decade? Drone attacks count.

people who are voting this up

people who are voting this up are people who are aware of all the facts. we created iran practically especially the current form of government. then we surrounded their entire country with bases.. then we now are poking around with syria to weaken iran.. then throw on sanctions.. we have done everything to piss them off and try to provoke them.. they are scared and now will likely create nukes just to get us to leave them the fuck alone. yes he's said some stupid crap. yes hes a tool but still a creation of us.. thus blowback.. and also why the entire muslim world is now pissed off at us. we keep screwin around with their countries and internal affairs there will be waves.

Ron Paul Changed Me

Before I found Ron Paul, I thought guys like Ahmadinejad were evil or something. Though I knew I really did not know anything about them. I was TOLD they were evil, and hated America, so they were. I was an idiot.

Now I look at Iran and struggle to understand the rationale or justification for a lifetime of violence toward them. I almost find myself cheering for Ahmadinejad! I have done the same thing with Farakhan - I used to think he was a racist nut bag. Now I admire him.

Thank you Ron Paul for opening my eyes to the unvarnished truth! Look forward to the interview, although the casual partisan neo-con whore will totally misinterpret the interview and the MSM will help him. They think "everything he says is lies" because he "hates America", therefore everything he says is completely fake or untrue.

Don't go that far...

Eh, Ahmadinejad and Farkhan are still evil and hateful people. Just because they have rational thought processes and objections to our government's status quo doesn't make them good or worthy of being cheered on...

The same could be said about Sadam Hussein - Although America had no right to topple his regime and were in the wrong for doing so, he was still a mass murderer, tyrannical dictator, aggressively invaded Iran, killed his own people, etc that needed to be taken out of power (by his own people in a manner of justice of course)....

Same with Hitler - never would've come to power had it not been for Franco/Anglo oppression from the WWI treaty... still a bad guy.

"You must be frank with the world; frankness is the child of honesty and courage...Never do anything wrong to make a friend or keep one...Above all do not appear to others what you are not" - Robert E. Lee, CSA

"Killed his own people"

Parallels abound. Obama killed Anwar Al-Awlaki last September, and his 16-year-old son a couple weeks later.

I love you. I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.

Wow, uneducated in real history arent you....

Every war is stared because one king wants something another king has.

Hitler was created by U.S. Banking interests. In particular "Brown Brothers Harriman". Prescott Bush was head of that organization, but other Wall St. interests invested in Hitler too.

I will add it to the post.

Now

he sounds like Mr and Mrs Michelle Bachman, ready to re educate the gays.

I don't like him. The people of Iran don't like him. He is a pos politician. Murderer of Iranians that protest.

You can't love or like this guy and be in your right mind.

Do not in any way take my comment as thinking I condone attacking Iran in any way. I do NOT.

Hmmmm

Have you ever observed Mr. Michele Bachmann? If your gaydar doesn't light up right away, the twinkle from his toes certainly will illuminate the surroundings. I'm not homophobic, just observant given my close familial proximity to the whole thing...Just sayin'...

Wha? .....hey....who stole my country?

You're info is wrong

You listen to the lies reported on TV. Read and learn yourself about Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, not the CNN, or Fox opinions and the people do like him, a lot, that's another lie. Our politicians are in-bed with Israel's Zionist Govt and that's the truth.

You don't know me

or where I get my news, obviously. Go assume elsewhere.

Ummmm

I don't know where you get your news either but you may want to dump your source(s)....he won his election in a major landslide. Not from fraud like we have here. He won it with full legitimacy.

He has been a rainmaker for governmental projects and infrastructure spending in the regions outside of Tehran...where the vast majority reside. He is apparently quite well liked...except by his minority political opponents in Tehran. The astroturf grassroots crap we saw on the telly was well...
