I don't even know what to say...


From today's headlines:

""How can you justify seeing a mother away from her home, her children? Why don't they respect family values in the West?" he asked of the British government."

That from Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, president of the Islamic Republick of Iran.

There are interwoven ironies here and which will strike people in diametrically opposing ways.

There's also this from the same story:

"On the occasion of the birthday of the great prophet (Muhammad) ... and for the occasion of the passing of Christ, I say the Islamic Republic government and the Iranian people — with all powers and legal right to put the soldiers on trial — forgave those 15," he said, referring to the Muslim prophet's birthday last Saturday and Easter, next Sunday."

Keep in mind he denies the Holocaust took place. Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch aren't too happy with him either.

He's clearly up to something though. Check out his blog here. http://www.ahmadinejad.ir/

Finally, his birthday is a day after mine. That is all.
