Obama has bent over backwards again and again to reach out to the Iranian mullahs. He has never spoken critically of the Iranian regime with any real force, and refused to back the Iranians who were protesting against the regime. Yet his supine dhimmitude is still not good enough for the Islamic Republic. With the typical Islamic supremacist displacement of responsibility, Seyed Ali Aqazadeh is making the fantastic claim that Obama is spreading “Iranophobia.” This exactly parallels the jihadist tendency never to accept responsibility for any wrongdoing of any kind, but always to affect the posture of the innocent victim. Hamas-linked CAIR operates in the same way.
“Senior MP: US President Should Apologize to Iran,” from the Fars News Agency, October 31 (thanks to Wimpy):
TEHRAN (FNA)- A senior member of the Iranian parliament condemned Washington’s plots and allegations against Tehran, and said US President Barack Obama should apologize for fabricating lies and accusations against the Iranian nation.
“Apologizing to the Iranian nation for fabricating the recent scenarios (against the country) is Obama’s duty and the US president should offer an official and formal apology,” member of the parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Seyed Ali Aqazadeh told FNA on Monday.
He said that the US allegations against Iran aimed to spread the atmosphere of Iranophobia over the world and feed the Zionist-dominated media with new materials against Iran.
The legislator further warned that such anti-Iran moves and actions entail dire consequences for the White House.
Last night, NBC News quoted Iranian diplomatic sources as saying that Tehran has demanded Washington to offer a public apology and pay unspecified monetary damages for its recently declared baseless allegations against Iran.
An unnamed Iranian diplomat told NBC News that the demands were contained in a recent letter to the US. It called on the US to apologize publicly to both the Islamic republic and officials of the Al Quds Force for “material and moral damages” caused by “this baseless accusation,” which violated “international rules and regulations.”
The diplomatic source would not provide details on when the letter was sent out, to whom it was addressed or who in the Iranian government wrote it.
A US State Department representative acknowledged Sunday that the letter had been received, but declined to discuss its contents.
After the US leveled the accusation against Iran earlier this month, Tehran fiercely rejected them as baseless and ridiculous, and asked Washington to present its proofs and evidence, but the White House has denied Iran’s call.
At the same time, Iranian officials at all levels of the government, including Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, have censured the US and warned it to avoid irrational moves.
“If US officials have some delusions, (they must) know that any unsuitable act, whether political or security, will meet a resolute response from the Iranian nation,” Ayatollah Khamenei warned two weeks ago.
President Mahmud Ahmadinejad said similarly that “Iran is a civilized nation and doesn’t need to resort to assassination.”
“The culture of terror belongs to you,” he said, referring to the United States.
