Ahmadinejad does not represent the Iranian people.

Once again, the unelected, illegitimate clown puppet of the thugs of the Iranian Islamic regime, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad - "The Monkey" to Iranians - has spewed some outrageous statements against the State of Israel.
In a fiery speech delivered on the 18th anniversary of the death of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, the father of Islamic terrorism, The Monkey said that "Allah willing, in the future we will witness the destruction" of Israel.
Ahmadinejad and the mullahs, above all else, are true Muslims and despise anything Iranian.
No sooner did President Ahmadinejad emerge from obscurity and assume his new role as the head of the Executive Branch of the Islamic regime in Iran than he unleashed a torrent of venomous rhetoric against the United States and Israel. This is contrary to the sentiments of the majority of Iranians.
Ahmadinejad does not represent the Iranian people any more than his turbaned-colleagues presently ruling Iran do. What needs to be understood is that, in fact, Ahmadinejad and the mullahs, above all else, are true Muslims and despise anything Iranian and its ancient "pre-Islamic" heritage.
Iranians are proud of their historical friendship with the Jewish people. The bond of friendship goes back to the landmark action of King Cyrus the Great of Persia. In 537 BCE, having conquered Babylon, the benevolent King Cyrus freed the Jews from captivity and empowered them to return to the Promised Land and build their Temple.
The majority of Iranians nowadays want to distance themselves from the Islamic regime in Iran and the likes of Ahmadinejad. Iranians wish the world to make a distinction between the Iranian people and the despicable Islamic regime, its wicked followers and traitorous lobbyists.
"The Monkey" sees Jews as the sworn enemies of Islam. The hostility dates back to the time of Muhammad's own treatment of the Jews in Medina. At first, expediently, Muhammad called the Jews "People of the Book," and accorded them a measure of tolerance - until he gained enough power to unleash his devastating wrath on them.
Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon was "shocked and dismayed" at a report that Iran's hard-line president said the world would soon witness the destruction of Israel, according to a statement released by the United Nations.

Iranians were forced to accept Islam to save their lives from the Arab invaders.
It is time for the world to see Ahmadinejad and his handlers for what they are. These end-of-the-worlders are not interested in any negotiation, any compromise or live-and-let-live. They are determined to be the soldiers of Mahdi, come what may. They have no problem with the total destruction of the world. They are headed for a life of eternal bliss in Allah's paradise. They hardly care, they would even rejoice, if the rest of humanity is subjected to a tragic death in the nuclear, biological and chemical wasteland of planet Earth.
What make matters terribly dangerous are the modern instruments of force and the willingness to use them. Centuries ago, the sword in the hand of the Islamists carved a huge empire. Now, with weapons of mass destruction, the entire world is in peril.
Iranian Muslims are victims of an Islamic virus that has destroyed in them their traditional respect for diversity. It is the Iranian ancient fundamental belief in the validity and value of diversity that has held the nation together over the millennia.

There exists such duplicity within the Iranian culture. Originally, Iranians were forced to accept Islam to save their lives from the Arab invaders, but deep inside the heart of every single Iranian alive to this date, the burning sensation and resentment of the Arab-Islamic invasion to their culture is forever flaming. Most Iranians may actually confess to being Muslims; yet, the overwhelming majority of Iranians have never read the Quran, nor do they understand its language. But the events of history have toughened Iranians gravely. They have become great pretenders.
The greatest celebration in Iran is the Persian New Year, better known as Nowruz, not the birth of the prophet Mohammad (as in most Muslim countries), in whose name Iran was conquered and millions of Persians were perished. Iranians have not forgotten that and they never will.
Throughout history, Iranians have been known for their tolerance of other creeds and religions. This was particularly notable in their associations and contacts with the Jews. Having been oppressed by the Seleucids and the Romans, the Jews had come to believe that Iran was the only superpower capable of saving them from a fanatical foreign yoke, as it had done once before in the Achaemenid period.
The Parthian dynasty role in the liberation of the Jews gave rise to the saying: "When you see a Parthian charger tied up to a tomb-stone in the land of Israel, the hour of the Messiah will be near". Unlike what the clergies are preaching today, the majority of Iranians have enjoyed being a good host to their fellow countrymen, the Jewish population. To quote from Wikipedia: "In the continuous struggles between the Parthians and the Romans, the Jews had every reason to hate the Romans, the destroyers of their sanctuary, and to side with the Persians: their protectors."
Israel should give the Iranian people a helping hand by supporting freedom-loving Iranians.
True Iranians have remained friends of the Jews in both belief as well as in deeds. During the shameful Hitlerian campaign to exterminate the Jews, for instance, Iranian missions in Europe, notably the one in France, issued Iranian passports to facilitate the flight of French and other European Jews from the claws of the Nazis and their gas chambers - the very gas chambers that the true Muslim Ahmadinejad, disgracing Iranians, denies ever existed.
Iranians stand for the rights of the Jews, as well as equal rights under the law for any and all religious and secular people. "A friend in need is a friend indeed," is an apt saying. It is time for Israel to reciprocate the historical assistance of the Iranians at their hour of need. It is payback time, now. Israel should give the Iranian people a helping hand by supporting freedom-loving Iranians. It is the Iranian people who can best end the tyrannical and menacing mullahcracy that is posing a deadly threat to all concerned.
