The Iranians Need Delivered from the Mullahs
Though I strongly believe that President Obama should reach out to the Iranians who are protesting for their freedom from harsh Islamic government control under Ahmadinejad and the mullahs, Ahmadinejad’s opponent, Mousavi, is, in reality, not much different that the radical Ahmadinejad himself. It’s the mullahs from whom the Iranians need delivered.
Read from Debbie Schlussel:
Much Ado About Nothing in Iran
The whole Iranian election scene is a farce. Even more of a farce is the pandering by all of the cable news networks--CNN, FOX News, MSNBC, etc.--to the supporters of this radical Mir Hossein Mousavi who lost, as if they are some sort of liberty and freedom movement, some semblance of moderation. They are anything but.
On the other hand, the news coverage--on the left AND on the right and all over the mainstream media--pandering to these Iranian supporters of Moussavi is incredibly, jaw-droppingly ignorant--acting as though, if Moussavi had ‘won,’ it would somehow be a legit election and somehow this guy would actually be the ‘moderate’ they pretend that he is, but isn't.
Moussavi is every bit as committed to development of Iran's nukes--a program HE started--as Ahmadinejad. He is every bit as anti-Israel and committed to attacking Israel as Ahmadinejad. And, like Ahmadinejad, he was picked as a candidate for this election by the Ayatollahs who run Iran and who would run Iran no matter what. And only an ignoramus would ignore the fact that Moussavi was part of the Iranian ‘revolution,’ which brought the Ayatollah Khomeini back to power from exile in France and which brought our embassies and plenty of Americans to a hostage situation consisting of over a year in captivity.
Please read it all.
