I stoped listening when the speaker immediately to the right of Ahmadinejad mentioned how many Jewish leaders died during the holocaust, which we all know, especially Mr. Ahmadinejad, did not happen. I am surprised that Mr. Ahmadinejad did not correct the speaker when the speaker mentioned this non existent event.
This is something they cannot talk about, or they risk putting themselves and their families in serious danger. Google David Cole. He was a Jewish Holocaust revisionist who received numerous death threats from the Jewish community for openly questioning the Holocaust. He has been in hiding since 92, and some believe he may be dead.
Given their circumstances, these gentlemen are being very brave to speak out as much as they do. I'm not going to hold a few historical inaccuracies against them and I don't think Ahmadinejad does either.
For some reason the owners of the newspaper do not want this posted. I'ved posted it 3 times and the keep taking it down saying it violates their policy. How? They won't say....
They won't say...
Maybe because it's a secret policy ?

I just realized this video was from 2007. I was thinking it was current.
Watch his very recent Piers Morgan interview. He says the same things plus a lot more insight, which I found day from night more truthful than the interviews our politicians give us.
Yes, I saw that one before I saw this one. Thanks for the input :)
Hate to tell you guys this but Ah-mad-in-jihad and his Islamic buddies are always giving speeches on how they are awaiting for their Islamic Savior to return and destroy the Jews. Of course their savior that they are talking about is actually the AntiChrist. Heres a good video on what they actually believe.
But I would say it's likely you're conflating zionists and the Israeli political organization incorrectly with 'jews'.
Otherwise, I fail to see why on earth the Iranian leadership wouldn't more-than-gladly start with the tens of thousands of jews in their own nation, or at the very least wouldn't take away their seat in government and otherwise give them as hard a time as they do various other dubbed-undesirables - who are so undesirable as to face execution, etc.
Historically, without geopolitics, the palestinians and dispute over their territory, and related things being thrown into the mix, muslims (both arab and persian, etc.) have coexisted about as well as anyone else.
At the beginning of the Islamic Revolution in 1979 there was an estimated 80,000 Jews in Iran. Now in 2012, according to their census, it is down to 9,000. So if 71,000 Jews decided to get out of Dodge it probably is not the greatest nation on the earth for religious tolerance.
...since we essentially caused the Islamic Revolution via our foreign policy boondoggles in the first place.
I won't go so far as to say it's an ideal place for jews, but I stand by my point that the Iranian leadership is focused on zionism and its effects, instead of jews and judaism in general. Jews are protected by the Iranian constitution (as are other religious views), guaranteed a seat in government, and generally allowed to live their lives in peace with their own yeshivas, hospitals, newspapers, and so on.
And regardless - if you've taken any courses on psychology, I'm sure you've heard "correlation does not prove causation". I'd call it likely that the israeli right of return also figures in here, looking at the pre-'48 numbers.
This is a political issue, not a religious one. The religious effects are peripheral and secondary, and merely distract from the root causes.
Pretty much EVERY arab country has had declining rates of Jewish population since 1948.
So is every Arab country "the devil"?
let's bomb them? WTF?
But we don't need to embrace Ahmadinnejad in order to not bomb Iran, right? Ahmadinnejad is a huge ass and Iran is a very totalitarian regime. It does not mean anyone should go to war and/or bomb the Iranian people but if you can't see the blatant state oppresion going on in Iran you are completely blind. In Iran women can't go out without covering their hair or else the moral police will arrest them, please tell me: how big government is that?
Look, Iran has great cultural treasures, art, music, innovation and awesome food. Overall it's a beautiful country with a rich heritage. Let's not make the classic statist mistake and preassume that it's the governments doing. (Hamburgers taste good, grand canyon is awesome, I met a nice american once - therefore Obama is a great man)
Right now in Iran, there are people like you. People who want personal and economic liberty. Just like you, except they don't have a daily paul because the government has taken it down. This praising of Ahmadinnejad that has been going on the last week flies in the face of fellow freedom fighters in Iran.
For some reason, watching this reminded me of another video, a classic. watch below:
Mahmoud A. is nobody's fool. What you see in the video is for show.
And to the angel of the congregation in Smyr′na write: These are the things that he says, ‘the First and the Last,’ who became dead and came to life again, ‘I know your tribulation and poverty—but you are rich—and the blasphemy by those who say they themselves are Jews, and yet they are not but are a synagogue of Satan.
And to the angel of the congregation in Philadelphia write: These are the things he says who is holy, who is true, who has the key of David, who opens so that no one will shut, and shuts so that no one opens, ‘I know your deeds—look ! I have set before you an opened door, which no one can shut—that you have a little power, and you kept my word and did not prove false to my name. Look ! I will give those from the synagogue of Satan who say they are Jews, and yet they are not but are lying—look ! I will make them come and do obeisance before your feet and make them know I have loved you.
I try to change people every day. Do You?
THIS propagandistic crap needs to go viral about as much as ebola.
This 2007 video, and others, are appearing online only now, years after their recordings and are still unnoticed by probably 99.999% of the world's adult population.
As a matter of "propaganda" that's not quite efficient if one asked Goebbels or Stalin.
Or if one asks me.
the Youtube was at circa 200 views yesterday at around the same time as now.
It's at 4,900+ views 24 hours later it seems.
"Clearly, continuation of the current circumstances in the world is impossible. The present inequitable and unfavorable conditions run counter to the very nature of human kind and move in a direction which contravenes the truth and the goal behind the creation of the world."
It is no longer possible to inject thousands of billions of dollars of unreal wealth to the world economy simply by printing worthless paper assets, or transfer inflation as well as social and economic problems to others through creating sever budget deficits.
The time has come to an end for those who define democracy and freedom and set standards whilst they themselves are the first who violate its fundamental principles. They can no longer sit both the judge and the executor and challenge the real democratically- established governments.
The awakening of nations and the expansion of freedom worldwide will no longer allow them to continue their hypocrisy and vicious attitudes. Because of all these reasons most nations including the people of the Untied States are waiting for real and profound changes. They have welcomed and will continue to welcome changes.

Thank you for sharing this.
All problems existing in our world today emanate from the fact that rulers have distanced themselves from human values, morality and the teachings of divine messengers. Regrettably, in the current international relations, selfishness and insatiable greed have taken the place of such humanitarian concepts as love, sacrifice, dignity, and justice. The belief in the One God has been replaced with selfishness.
Some have taken the place of God and insist to impose their values and wishes on others. Lies have taken the place of honesty; hypocrisy has replaced integrity and selfishness has taken the place of sacrifice. Deception in interactions is called foresight and statesmanship; looting the wealth of other nations is called development efforts; occupation is introduced as a gift towards promotion of freedom and democracy, and defenseless nations are subjected to repression in the name of defending human rights.
To be honest, it is comical and sad that you, Libertarians, have retrogressed to mullahs and Hasidim.
I give you an intellectual challenge: know your friend and enemy well.
1) Read Talmud; 2) Read Zionist Ayn Rand's "Atlas Shrugged."
The former will dwarf you to an intellectual midget, the latter will help you to understand limitation of Ron Paul, Rothbard and Libertarians. Because all core Libertarian believes are just 40% of Ayn Rand "Objectivism" (meaning all Objectivists are Libertarians by default.) But even among those 40% Ayn Rand was able to debunk the main points of Rothbard' Libertarian Manifesto - anarchism and "natural law/non-aggression law" as an axiom given by god or nature.
If "Atlas Shrugged" is not clear for you, try Ayn Rand's "To New Intellectual" or NBI lectures on tape.
The Talmud is worth reading, but it's certainly not up to your description. It's a very long collection of writing by many different authors, some very good, some not. On any given issue it will usually preserve several, contradictory opinions, some of which have to be horribly embarrasing to anyone that wants to trumpet it's virtues. For instance, on the subject of the original hebrew alphabet, the opinions preserved range from that of Mar Zutra (which we know to be essentially correct) to that of Rabbi Elezar of Modin, whose reported position is so absurdly ignorant as to inspire gales of laughter in any reader who knows anything about the question at all.
Rand was a talented woman but she certainly never succeeded in 'debunking' Rothbard or libertarianism in the eyes of anyone that hadnt already drunk her koolaid and joined her cult. In fact Rockwell schooled her pretty hard if you ask me. But a person who surrounds herself with people that literally worship her and 'excomunicates' anyone that so much as dares to like a piece of music she does not, is no role model for the movement and no paragon of rationality, however good some of her books might have been.
The Talmud Is Not The Torah: Here Is Your Talmud:
You may leave now.
You Do Not Belong Here.

Sure, go for it. Continue to BLAME religion and/or whichever groups you dislike.
On my end, I'll continue to DENOUNCE the horrors that come out of THIS, THAT, and THIS.
And I'll continue to DEFEND THIS until my last breath.
And guess what. Not even for myself. Only for my two sons.
Maybe it will make sense to you eventually if you have kids.
