IRNA: Ahmadinejad Met “US Muslim Leaders”

From the Islamic Republic News Agency IRNA:

Certain US media keep Americans away from truth, president

New York, Sept 25, IRNA

Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Monday that the US has turned to a large prison where the media are keeping the American people away from truth.

Addressing a group of US Muslim leaders, he said Holocaust was a pretext for occupation of Palestine and making over 5,000 innocent people homeless.

On dispute between the Shia and Sunni Muslims in Iraq, the Iranian president said there is no difference between the real faithful people. The differences between Shia and Sunni Muslims have been created by enemies, he added.

As to the issue of nuclear energy, he said, “We are against nuclear weapons. We do not accept it and even believe that the big powers should be disarmed of nuclear weapons.”

Ahmadinejad further called for proximity of all divine religions, saying that all religions share a common root…

Speaking of the “US media keeping Americans away from the truth,” just who or what is this group of Muslim leaders that Mr. Ahmadinejad is supposed to have addressed yesterday?

And, presuming it did actually happen, why hasn’t this meeting been reported by our watchdog media?

Exactly who are they protecting? And whatever happened to the public’s right to know?

It’s a pretty sad testimony that we don’t know whom to believe here. Our media or the enemy’s.


Our friend Clarice Feldman points out another report on the reception from Iran’s Mehr News Agency:

All nations seek peace and security: Ahmadinejad

TEHRAN, Sept. 25 (MNA) — Today, all nations are seeking peace, freedom and lasting security, Iranian President Mahmud Ahamdinejad said in a meeting of U.S. Islamic leaders on Monday.

People everywhere are seeking real freedom and feel weary of the current world conditions, he noted.

The only way to put the world affairs back into order is to return to justice and the worship of God and that is what the hearts are yearning for, he stated.

The president said the U.S. administration with its great financial resources is trying to prevent people from discovering the truth.

Iran condemns the production and use of nuclear weapons and believes that major powers should destroy their nuclear arsenals, Ahmadinejad said.

He pointed to Israeli crimes against Palestinians, saying, “Resolutions issued regarding the situation in Palestine are not implemented and I feel sure that American people do not like this and admit that Palestinians are right.”

Holocaust became a pretext for the occupation of Palestine and driving millions of people out of their homes and it is important to study various dimensions of this phenomenon, the president stated.

So the questions still stand.

Why has this not been reported in the Western media? And who are these US Muslim leaders?
