Ahmadinejad an embittered provocateur

Reader comment on item: The Mystical Menace of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad

Submitted by Paul (Australia), Dec 16, 2006 at 22:38

Iran's president Ahmadinejad claims to be about peace. On November 26th, 2006, he is reported to have said, "[The] Iranian nation is seeking peace and tranquility all over the world, particularly in th Middle East and the Persian Gulf". Yet all we seem to hear from him are words of bitterness and provocation towards Israel and the West and defiance over the nuclear program. "Anyone who recognizes Israel will burn in the fire of the Islamic nation's fury," he has said. Are we going to see a change in his hostile attitude? If he really is a man of peace then how about some conciliatory words and a respectful tone for a change. How about some level headedness and willingness to negotiate.
