Analyzing Ahmadinejad's Admonitions

I have had time to read and analyze the letter from Iran's President Ahmadinejad and my conclusion? He has basically said, 'abandon democracy and join the [Islamic] religious revival', ... or else. President George W. Bush was right to dismiss this letter as a move by Tehran to divert attention from the nuclear issue. To give any public value to this letter would be a mistake.

However, behind the scenes our govenment should be taking this 18 page rambling letter very seriously. Ahmadinejad recounts all the supposed "sins" of the American government and calls on President Bush to abandon democracy and repent.

The people of many countries are angry about the attacks on their cultural foundations and the disintegration of families. They are equally dismayed with the fading of care and compassion. The people of the world have no faith in international organizations, because their rights are not advocated by these organizations. source

He is trying to stir up more problems between liberals and conservatives here in the US. He uses MSM talking points expertly. He talks about Latin America, Africa, Israel.

Would not your government and people be justifiably proud?

Laura Mansfield calls the letter a “last warning” of sorts.
"Islamic theology documents that no attack can be carried out in jihad without first offering the “unbelievers” the opportunity to “repent” and accept Islam. Only when that overture is rejected can an attack occur".

Middle East Web Log says the situation is 'worse than we had imagined'.
