With the recent visit of the Iranian President to the United States, my respect for the man has grown. Religious differences aside, I have to say, looking at his stance against the United States and his speeches, he has a lot of courage. He is right now, one of the few leaders who is adamantly standing up against the United States, unlike our current Muslim/Arab leaders who are allies of the West and their so-called 'War On Terror' and/or are too scared to stand up for what they believe in.
He was was invited to the Columbia University when he was on his visit and I'll say this in the most kindest terms, Lee Bollinger was an utter and complete fool for having treated the President the way he did. Although Ahmadinejad aptly put him in his place later on. There is something called 'Manners' and 'Respect' which was absent from the way he spoke and what he accused the President off. The bias involved was apparent, I wonder what happened to being objective and open-minded, something the U.S prides itself in and claims to teach in its Universities.

Secondly, some of the questions asked by the Students reek of ignorance. They're watching Faux news too much and need to go through other resources to get their news. I don't understand how they can accuse Ahmadinejad of being a terrorist, of supporting terrorists and being oppressive when they themselves, their Country is more applicable to being called a terrorist.
President Bush has the blood of thousands of Iraqis, [Estimate go as high as 600,000], and Afghanis on his hands. Not to mention he supports the terrorist state of Israel. There have been rape cases where American Soldiers have committed unthinkable atrocities and the Students have the audacity to call him a terrorist. Someone needs to remind them of how Fallujah was bombed to pieces with napalm bombs, [Bombs which were used in Japan - they burn your skin off you] the case of 14 Year-Old Abeer Qassim Hamza who was raped and all the other massacres that are occurring and have occurred in Iraq and Afghanistan. Someone needs to tell them that now, Iraqi Women are being sold and forced into prostitution, that there is a lack of electricity in Iraq and no Water. Because of their government. Yes, their beloved United States.
When they themselves have Nuclear Power and weaponry, I don't understand how they can ask another Country not to make the same thing. In fact, they have even used them in the past. Everyone remembers the atrocities committed against Hiroshima and Nagasaki in the Second World War. The United States needs to clean up it's own act, before accusing others of 'terrorism'.
I hope the United States and President Bush are not stupid and deranged enough to attack Iran, but looking at the current situation of absolute madness, I will not be surprised.
May Allah subhanna wa ta'ala unite the Muslim Ummah and remove our enemies from Muslim Lands.
May Allah subhanna wa ta'ala give victory to this Ummah.
