[Readers, apologies for linking to racist material, but it is necessary, in this case, as a public record.]
I had almost forgotten it was Al Quds day yesterday.
Thankfully, Stephen Sizer sent out a reminder and a link to Press TV.
Rev. Sizer’s supporters might be surprised that he chose Press TV of all of the world’s news media on Al Quds day, particularly in light of President Ahmadinejad’s recent comments.
Previously, Rev. Sizer, after being caught linking to racist material, wrote:
“Having consulted a number of Jewish friends, I now keep a small list of websites to avoid in future. I will be more careful about the origin of material I post on my blog and Facebook…”
Pity Rev. Sizer could not keep his promise and avoid racist web sites.
I am sure that Rev. Sizer, who is a very smart man, could not fail to see Press TV’s coverage of President Ahmadinejad speech:
“Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says the International Quds Day is the day of unity among all human beings to remove the Zionist “black stain” from the human society.
“Today, countering the entity of Zionism and the fabricated Zionist regime safeguards rights of all human beings, defends human dignity and paves the way to save humankind from arrogance, poverty and misery,” Ahmadinejad said in an address at the International Quds Day on Friday.
The world should know that most Western hegemonic and colonial powers maintain a joint commitment to protect the entity of the Israeli regime, he added.
The Iranian chief executive stated that the Israeli regime is a tool to control the Middle East region and the entire world, stressing the regime’s existence is an insult to the mankind.
He added that Western powers are justifying the Israeli regime’s homicide “because they are dependent on them (Zionists).”
Ahmadinejad said that the Zionists masterminded the Word War I and II to dominate nations and prepare the ground for the US power.
He added that all the world’s main centers of power, media and banks are controlled by the Zionists. However, they “use all of them for destruction of values and nations.”
He said that even the US presidential hopefuls have to bow to the Zionists if they want to have the chance to run.
Ahmadinejad emphasized that successive US governments have explicitly announced that they have been committed to salvage the Israeli regime and stated, “So, we should be vigilant and negligence against enemies will give the opportunity to them to dominate the region.”
He highlighted the significance of reinforcing unity and securing fundamental rights of nations in a rational atmosphere and through dialogue.
“The Iranian nation will not give up one iota of its own fundamental rights and those of other nations,” the president pointed out.
The head of the Supreme National Security Council further pointed to regional developments, dubbed by Western media as the Arab Spring, and stated that the world would also witness European and American spring in the near future.
He lashed out at the US President Barack Obama for failing to remain committed to his change slogan and recommended American authorities to avoid pursuing the Zionists and act independently to serve their own interests.
“Westerners are after [the establishment] of a new Middle East. We are also after a new Middle East which will definitely be formed … but in this new Middle East, there will be no trace of the US and Zionists,” Ahmadinejad pointed out.
Millions of enthusiastic Iranian people held massive rallies in Tehran and more than 550 cities and towns on the International Quds Day in support of the Palestinian resistance against the Israeli regime.
The participants carried placards and chanted slogans against the United States and Israel.
In 1979, Imam Khomeini, the late founder of the Islamic Republic, designated the last Friday of the lunar month of Ramadan as the International Quds Day, during which Muslims across the world hold rallies to show their solidarity with Palestinians. “
