Mu-slime Logic

If the leader of a muslim nation believes, or says he believes, the US version of the 9/11 terrorist attack is fiction, then he is either dangerously ignorant or dangerously deceitful.

In this case, it more likely that Ahmadinejad is dangerously deceitful -- from our perspective. In muslim culture, the concept of lying is very different from the Western concept. From the Islamic perspective, a story that is factually false may be accepted as truth if it offers thoughts that are presented to form a greater truth. An excellent example is the Koran, which, like the Old Testament and the New Testament of the Bible, is fiction. But it is received by almost every muslim on the planet as a collection of incontestable facts.


Iran's Ahmadinejad: Sept. 11 attacks a 'big lie'

By ALI AKBAR DAREINI, Associated Press Writer Ali Akbar Dareini – Sat Mar 6, 2010

TEHRAN, Iran – Iran's hard-line President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Saturday called the official version of the Sept. 11 attacks a "big lie" used by the U.S. as an excuse for the war on terror, state media reported.

Ahmadinejad's comments, made during an address to Intelligence Ministry staff, come amid escalating tensions between the West and Tehran over its disputed nuclear program. They show that Iran has no intention of toning itself down even with tighter sanctions looming because of its refusal to halt uranium enrichment.

"September 11 was a big lie and a pretext for the war on terror and a prelude to invading Afghanistan," Ahmadinejad was quoted as saying by state TV. He called the attacks a "complicated intelligence scenario and act."

The Iranian president has questioned the official U.S. version of the Sept. 11 attacks before, but this is the first time he ventured to label it a "big lie."

In 2007, New York officials rejected Ahmadinejad's request to visit the World Trade Center site while he was in the city for a U.N. meeting. The president also sparked an uproar when he said during a lecture in New York that the causes and conditions that led to the attacks, as well as who orchestrated them, still need to be examined.

At the time, he also told Iranian state TV the attacks were "a result of mismanaging and inhumane managing of the world by the U.S," and that Washington was using Sept. 11 as an excuse to attack others.

He has also questioned the Sept. 11 death toll of around 3,000, claiming the Americans never published the victims' names.

Every year on the anniversary of the attacks, the names of 2,750 victims killed in New York are read aloud at a memorial ceremony.

Mahmoud Ahamdinejad in merely a sock-puppet for Islam's violent behavior. Iran invented "taquiyya" (purposeful religious deception) to disarm and deceive the unaware, non-believing 'kafir' from the Islamic Goal of World Domination.

reb,

I've always felt that about a dozen well placed cruise missiles would solve our Iran problem.

The great majority in Iran is under
35, and it's clear they've had quite enough of the Mullahs.

Ahmadinejad denies the holocaust, and he calls our 9/11 a mythical invention!

Now, if we have the fortitude for a
regime change here in the U.S. come
November 2nd, perhaps we can offer
these brave people a little "strategic" air support.

reb,

True, the median age of many countries, including Iran, is a low number. The median age in many African nations is 19. Thus, half the population is less than 19. And the other half is older.

In those countries the life expentancy is about 50. Dismally bad.
