Ahmadinejad has now a new picture to lure his gullible Arab audience: Picture of Marwa AlShirbini, the woman who was savagely murdered in Germany.
What Ahmadinejad cleverly does is "CAPILTALIZING on the ignorance" of the mainstream US and world media!
In this interview, he catches Couric in the same ice cold that Couric had caught Palin almost a year ago! Holding up a picture of Marwa: do you know this woman? "Couric: "No". And then he rightly asks: how come the western media knows about Neda and not about Marwa? Of course if I were there I would answer:
Because the world has not seen million-large protests defying a military curfew by Germany trying to hide the crime, or flooding Berlin streets in green, and running global new-media campaigns by Muslims and Arab lobbyists in America, to symbolize Marwa; as Iranians have! Or Because Marwa was killed because of religious hatred and xenophobia; not because of presidential orders for fear mongering. Or because world has heard about Neda being killed in HER OWN MUSLIM COUNTRY and not in the world of "already dismissed" infidels who already have Al-Quaeda and like of you on "revenge" track!!
But then this farce got worse! At the end of this video Couric holds up Holocaust pictures at Ahmadinejad; shaking her dumb head in dismay trying to make him confess that Holocaust happened or didn't happen to PROVE that based on Holocaust denial he has legitimacy or not!
Here are some of the questions I would have asked Mr Ahmadinejad:
- What kind of security, you as a president, are capable of guaranteeing your citizens when a peaceful rally in questioning election result can turn into a blood bath?
- How can you chant the peace and justice for the world mantra when you have been incapable to deliver peace and justice in your own country after 100 days of "in your words tragic loss of life of > 30 Iranians"?
- You claim the independence of the judiciary system; however many of the arrests and the killings were not carried out by judiciary process. How do you account for that?
- How do you explain the paramilitary presence in Judiciary, Universities, Armed forces, and Medicine--as recently revealed?
- Why did you not agree to a re-count of the vote?
- When you dismiss Holocaust as a myth and claim that western powers do NOT ALLOW RESEARCH on this topic; and claim that you are not interested in layman's approach to history but are interested in scientific approach:
- What is scientific in setting up a country's agenda on the aim of "return of Imam Mahdi"?
- What PROOF do you have that research about Holocaust is not "allowed"?
- If you are interested in Academic freedom, then why are you jailing intellectuals and professors on charges of focusing on "western" humanity sciences?
- If you are interested in scientific integrity, why have you chosen a "scientifically proven plagiarist" as minister of science?
- Speaking of academic approach, why have so many of your ministers been caught red-handed faking PhD degrees from universities they never attended?
- Speaking of history manipulations, why have you ordered a removal of "History of Persian Kingdoms" from the elementary and secondary curricula?
- Speaking of scientific accountability, why have you never explained the discrepancy in numbers reported (again) by Iran's central bank and Oil ministry: what have you done with the 25 billion dollars oil-revenue?
- 7. Speaking of "myth", how do you explain "your myth" that Iranians have freedom (of press and dress) when you jail journalists who criticize you but leave free those who spread slander against your opponents? Or when you issue "dress code" warnings to cloths stores to not carry certain items?
