Last Wednesday the 4,000 students in Teheran got a guest speaker, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. This was part of their course titled “A World Without Zionism“. His presence was part of celebrations for the final Friday of the Ramadan fast. The main message of this lecture was the need for the destruction of Israel and the immediate removal of this “stain” on the face of Islam. The crowed cheered with acceptance at these words.
Iran, an oil rich country with 70 Million people and is clearly voicing its opinion and plan yet is still claiming that the plans for it’s nuclear program are strictly peaceful. Now look at the banner behind the speaker and ask yourself, how peaceful are these plans?
The free world is strictly driven by financial and economical motives. These are helping shield this Iranian President and allow him to comfortably make this statements without any fear or consequence. Israel needs to make sure these statements are taken seriously by the world community. These words and the backing provided by Iran keep terror organizations active and provide the fuel for hatered in the middle east.
To think that in today’s world, in 2005, a leader of a country can still call for the complete annihilation of any country is beyond comprehension.
The idea that there can be universities that offer a program called “A world without Zionismâ€ is to say the least demented.
Can you imagine the course materials ? What does the curriculum include? What are the job prospects for an honours graduate of the program ?
This can not be over emphasized. This needs to be opposed and addressed by the world before bad things start happening. The world has had a little reminder with 9/11, London Bombings and other terrorist attacks in recent history. Letâ€™s learn from these lessons and take care of this malignant growth on the human kind.
