Ahmadinejad’s Popularity Fading Fast!

Posted by Atilla89 on July 16, 2007

Finally, some good news that is coming out of Iran. I’ll give you the statistics first and leave you to read the rest of the article from Pajamas Media:

Baztab recently ran a poll asking users if they would vote for Ahmadinejad or not. Each computer was only allowed one vote, and 20,177 voters took part.

There were four questions and each voter could choose only one. The votes were broken down into two categories — those who for Ahmadinejad in 2005 in Category One, and those who did not in Category Two:

Category One

  1. I voted for Ahmadinejad in 2005, and would vote for him again: 37.5%
  2. I voted for Ahmadinejad in 2005, but would not vote for him again: 62.5%

Category Two

  1. I did not vote for Ahmadinejad in 2005, but would vote for him next time: 5.3%
  2. I did not vote for Ahmadinejad in 2005, and would not vote for him again: 94.7%

The results are an astounding setback for Ahmadinejad. 62.5% of voters who said that they voted for him in 2005 would not do so again. This is first and foremost due to the combination of the abysmal performance of his economic policies and his inability to cut corruption, as he promised to do in 2005.

The rationing of petrol has only made things worse. On the day the rationing plan was started, a popular SMS was doing the rounds of millions of mobile phones in Iran. The message read, “No petrol to drive your car to work? Don’t worry. Use one of the 17 million donkeys who voted for Ahmadinejad to ride to work.” This message worried the administration so much that the entire SMS system was shut down for a day in order to enable the Ministry of Communication to delete the insulting messages from the network.

Although Ahmadinejad is unpopular, the West must not think that it has a blank to check to do what it wants in Iran. Every time the words “regime change” are uttered by neocons in Washington the extremists score political loyalty points. Something they desperately need. The UN may seem toothless from the perspective of Washington. But it is one of the most useful and powerful organizations for tackling extremists in Iran due to its international composition, and the very fact that Iran itself is a member. Such legitimacy strikes fear in the heart of Ahmadinejad’s government like no other foreign organization can.

There is a new Farfour and his name is Nahoul the bee!

Posted by Atilla89 on July 16, 2007

Straight from MEMRI:

In the last episode Farfour was killed by the evil Zionists. Today we are introduced to Nahoul, Farfour’s cousin who vows to fight back and follow the path of matrydom!

Right now I can’t stop laughing, the whole thing is absolutely ridiculous, enjoy.

On Hamas Al-Aqsa TV, Nahoul the Bee Replaces Farfour the Mickey-Mouse Character, Vows to Continue Farfour’s Path of Martyrdom, Jihad

Following the “martyrdom” of Hamas’s Al-Aqsa TV’s Mickey Mouse-like character Farfour at the hands of an Israeli soldier ( on the Pioneers of Tomorrow children’s show, the show introduced a new character, Nahoul the Bee, who vowed to continue in Farfour’s path of “Islam, heroism, martyrdom, and the mujahideen.”

The following are excerpts from the Pioneers of Tomorrow show featuring Nahoul the Bee, which aired on Al-Aqsa TV on July 13, 2007.

Saraa, child host: Who are you, and where did you come from?

Nahoul the Bee: I am Nahoul.

Saraa: Nahoul who?

Nahoul: I’m Nahoul, Farfour’s cousin.

Saraa: What do you want?

Nahoul: I want to continue the path of my cousin Farfour.

Saraa: How do you want to do this?

Nahoul: I want to be in every episode with you on the Pioneers of Tomorrow show, just like Farfour. I want to continue in the path of Farfour – the path of Islam, of heroism, of martyrdom, and of the mujahideen. Me and my friends will follow in the footsteps of Farfour. We will take revenge upon the enemies of Allah, the killer of the prophets and of the innocent children, until we liberate Al-Aqsa from their impurity. We place our trust in Allah.

Saraa: Welcome, Nahoul…

Fighting in Iraq is vital to stopping Iran

Posted by Atilla89 on July 16, 2007

This article is from the Jerusalem Post:

Its pretty much Dubya saying his bit with me in full agreement as to what he’s saying. Read it for yourself.

US President George W. Bush strongly defended his Iraq policy in a press conference Thursday, warning that a swift American withdrawal would threaten allies in the region and strengthen forces calling for Israel’s destruction.

“The fight in Iraq is part of a broader struggle that’s unfolding across the region,” he said, singling out groups including Hizbullah, Hamas and Islamic Jihad and countries including Syria and Iran.

“The same regime in Iran that is pursuing nuclear weapons and threatening to wipe Israel off the map is also providing sophisticated IEDs [improvised explosive devices] to extremists in Iraq who are using them to kill American soldiers,” he told reporters at the White House as part of an assessment on the situation in Iraq.

“All these extremist groups would be emboldened by a precipitous American withdrawal, which would confuse and frighten friends and allies in the region,” he said, countering calls from Democrats and an increasing number of Republicans that America begin to withdraw from Iraq.

Declaring that “nations throughout the Middle East have a stake in a stable Iraq,” Bush said his administration was “enhancing our military presence, improving our bilateral security ties, and supporting those fighting the extremists across the Middle East.”

He cautioned that the reaction to the chaos stemming from weakened American support in Iraq would particularly strengthen Iran.

“Such chaos and violence would send a mixed signal to the Iranians, who have stated that they believe Israel ought to be wiped off the map,” he said. “People would begin to wonder about America’s resolve. Al-Qaida would certainly be in a better position to raise money and recruit.”

He also said that a report showing al-Qaida returning to its 2001 capabilities was being misunderstood, as it referred to 2001 after 9/11.

“Because of the actions we have taken, al-Qaida is weaker today than they would have been,” he said, returning to the podium after concluding the press conference in order to take a question on the subject.

“They are still a threat. They are still dangerous. And that is why it is important that we succeed in Afghanistan and Iraq and anywhere else we find them.”
