FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Leading CODEPINK activists and other peace organizations meet with Iranian president in New York

NEW YORK — Calling it a “major step forward” in relations between Iran and the United States, leading activists Medea Benjamin and Jodie Evans of CODEPINK Women for Peace — along with more than 150 other U.S. peace group representatives — met Wednesday afternoon with Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad here following his appearance at the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday.

At the meeting at the Grand Hyatt Hotel, coordinated by interfaith peace group the Fellowship of Reconciliation, the peace activists talked to Ahmadinejad about their desire to strengthen people-to-people ties between the two countries. They presented several proposals for the Iranian government to consider and copies of a petition signed by 50 U.S. mayors all over the country calling for diplomatic engagement with Iran, not military action. The petition, promoted by CODEPINK, illustrates how local U.S. leaders are anxious to move national resources away from military intervention and into reinvestment in infrastructure, schools and health care. CODEPINK proposed taking a delegation of U.S. Mayors to Iran to create “sister cities.”

“U.S. government officials are quick to stir up hostilities with Iran, but the American people are tired of war,” said Benjamin, co-founder of the nonpartisan women’s peace group CODEPINK. “The peace movement represents the sentiment of the majority of Americans  who want our two countries to find ways to work together and improve relations. We are modeling the behavior we want to see our government adopt.”

The CODEPINK women proposed inviting American and Iranian artists to build a “peace park” in Tehran, a memorial dedicated to people-to-people commitment to peace and diplomacy between our two countries.

They also proposed a plan to invest funds in an Iranian business, one that produces green and sustainable products, such as bicycles. This grassroots investment would be the opposite of efforts by the Bush administration and Congress to tighten sanctions, a move which CODEPINK thinks would only hurt ordinary, everyday Iranians. Such a symbolic CODEPINK investment in a green, sustainable business would challenge U.S. regulations blocking trade with Iran and would show how diplomacy and trade are preferable to war and sanctions.

The meeting, which took place in a cordial and positive atmosphere, was considered a great breakthrough.

“It’s rare for a head of state to take time during an official U.N. visit to meet with the peace community, especially in a situation where the host government—represented by the Bush administration—is so hostile,” said Evans, co-founder of CODEPINK. “The fact that the meeting took place and was so positive is, in itself, a major step forward.”

As we have noted previously, the aforementioned Jodie Evans is a major Obama bundler.

From Obama’s campaign site:

Who are Senator Obama’s bundlers?

Raising from $50,000 to $100,000:

Wendy Abrams (Highland Park, IL)
Charles Adams (Geneva, Switzerland)
Lishan Aklog (Phoenix, AZ)
Karim Alibhai (Key Biscayne, FL)
Pinney Allen (Atlanta, GA)
Michael Alter (Winnetka, IL)

Jodie Evans (Los Angeles, CA)

Just imagine the media frenzy if a high profile McCain supporter had met with Mr. Ahmadinejad?

We last reported on the doings of the professional protesters, Ms. Evans and Benjamin, when they tried to storm Governor Sarah Palin’s speech at the Republican convention. (See photo above.)

Of course they are only too happy to listen to the dulcet pronouncements of an anti-Semitic madman.

    These stupid excuses for women should have been jailed long ago for their activities. Someone tell me why that hasn’t happened….

  2. Liberals Make Great Speedbumps says:

    Sooie,

    I’d personally support a firing squad for all of these seditious POS, starting at the ankles and working their way up. This country had better get its s*** together before we are buried from within.

    The irony is that in Tehran, these women would be stoned to death for shaming their male relatives and Mahmoud would probably cast the first stone. These sad people really don’t know how good they have it. Why is it so hard for the peaceniks to understand that sedition breeds war? If they would just go about their lives enjoying their freedom and liberty and promoting the American way, American culture would do their work for them. It’s a fact, American culture is slowly gobbling up the bassackward, bronze-age B.S. savagery in the rest of the world as more and more oppressed people realize how great Americans have it.

    These women hate themselves – i.e.Medea Benjamin was born Susan -‘a self-described “nice Jewish girl”‘-
    and after obtaining monies from marrying rich men, they then got bored with real life and decided to spew their hatred onto the rest of us. Jodie Evans is one of 5 ex wives of Max Palevsky from Chicago, now of CA, who is now known for his homes. . .

    Wow bored, angry feminists (wait, I’m being redundant) except this bunch has money.

    I just think of what I’d do if I had time on my hands like that not to mention the money. Certainly wouldn’t be running amok in stupid pink outfits, screaming lies and distortions and disrupting Congress (not that they don’t need disrupting right now).

    Life just isn’t fair sometimes.

  5. Exeter says:

    Jed – These twats aren’t about peace, freedom or love – those are just lofty sentiments they use to disguise their need for attention. I mean, look at them! Would ANYBODY show them the slightest interest if they weren’t loud and obnoxious? Daddy didn’t buy them a pony when they were 12, and they still haven’t gotten over it.

  6. 1sttofight says:

    WM4,

    There is a name for women who trade sex for money….

  7. wardmama4 says:

    1sttofight – yes and it was probably the most expensive ‘session’ that either of their hubbies ever had to fork over for. And there is a word for men stupid enough to fall for such tactics. Actually, I think both sides also qualify for the word – desperate.

  8. Consilience says:

    This is the “watch me too” syndrome. I find them odious and mentally ill—-these people don’t deserve the blanket of freedom provided by people who are better; but alas that has been the burden of their “betters” since our founding. A hundred years ago we had institutions for people like this—isn’t’ Gitmo going to be cleared of Camel jockeys? :))

  9. Seventy years ago, the appeasement weenies & ‘can’t we all just get along’ Ostriches went prostrate before Hitler. No body listened then; no body is listening now.

    We’re fat, dumb & complacent in the West. “Gimme mine as long as evil rich people pay for it.” A round of Kumbaya for all.

    This current presidential campaign highlights a harsh divide of culture & philosophy: The U.S. of A. is the enemy. Global ‘one world’ socialism which levels everyone into mediocrity is the perceived answer. Amoral self-delusion & relativistic projection rules the day.

    I went to my kid’s parent/teacher meet at his high school last night. I was dumb struck by all the marxist/muslim brotherhood/obama propaganda which littered the classroom walls! I even confronted one teacher who unabashedly proclaimed she was a socialist and wanted to present ‘icons’ to other teens who felt the same way.

    My guess is the globalist/socialist/marxist indoctrination infiltration is present in other high schools, as well. A letter to the principal is forth coming by me, but I suspect it will fall on deaf, sympathizer’s ears.

    The pink wackjobs, and street anarchists, and global socialists, and Sorsos marxist have no eneemies or agenda or comprehension of the vicious tension in the world and against the U.S. of A. To them, boooshitler and death star cheney are the greatest threat here and abroad.

    Don’t regale the masses with a tale of death, oppression, and persecution of Jews, women, and homosexuals by Herr Ahmadinejad.

    It’ll interrupt the pink wackjob’s amoral self-delusion & relativistic projection.

    God save the Republic.
