Putting words in Ahmadinejad’s mouth

Originally published 8/28/06:

This is very interesting.  Apparently we have been misinterpreting Farsi on some of President Ahmadinejad’s speeches.  This is quite a bif piece of propaganda if it is true.  The article is here:

In this article the author points out that where Ahmadinejad had been interpreted as saying:

“Israel must be wiped off the map”

He should have been interpreted as saying:

“this regime that is occupying Jerusalem must vanish from the page of time.”

Also, where he is quoted to have said:

“There is no doubt: the new wave of assaults in Palestine will erase the stigma in [the] countenance of the Islamic world.”

He should have been interpreted:

 “I have no doubt that the new movement taking place in our dear Palestine is a wave of morality which is spanning the entire Islamic world and which will soon remove this stain of disgrace from the Islamic world.”

Also, where he said:

“that the ‘main cure’ for crisis in the Middle East is the elimination of Israel.”

what he really said was:

“The real cure for the conflict is the elimination of the Zionist regime, but there should be an immediate ceasefire first.”

It would seem according to this author, that we are putting words in the Iranian President’s mouth.
