Rattled by the Wikileaks disclosure that Saudi Arabia urged the USA to cut off the head of the (Iranian) snake, Iran has told its neighbours what most of us with half a brain already knew.
Not that I take their word for that little promissory note.
But we now know, if we ever doubted it, that Iran’s target has nothing to do with religion! Oh, no, nothing at all. As long as your religion is Islam.
Some of us, those who believe in illusionary moral equivalence and a juvenile values-free world, have never understood this. And probably never will. Even when such creatures (and I use this word purposely) as Anjem Choudary, have told us the same –
Over and over again. As here – Anjem Choudary Vs Usama Dakdok: Jihad Exposed in the USA and here Anjem Choudary, “UK Head of Al-Muhajiroun”. WHO??? WHAT??? and here Anjem Choudary, Islamist fundamentalist (Islam4UK) – videos. Enjoy! and here Arrest Super-Jihadist Anjem Choudary (Part 2) and here Choudary “investigated” by Police over Mujahideen fund-raising and here To Home Secretary & PM – Arrest & Deport Coup Plotter Anjem Choudary NOW! and here Anjem Choudary on Protest at Luton troops/Should “Hate Speech” be Banned? and here Sharia Law for UK – OK say Anjem Choudary AND English Barrister Hockman and here – Buck House- a Mosque when Britain succumbs to Islam and here Choudary smiling because Sharia is coming and PARTICULARLY here –
EXCERPT from the HardTalk transcript which I transcribed myself, as the BBC didn’t think it worth bothering its little head about (read it all at the last link above):
Anjem Choudary: Look, at the end of the day innocent people, when we say “innocent people” we mean Muslims. As far as non-muslims are concerned they have er … they have not accepted Islam and as far as we are concerned that is a crime against God.
Stephen Sackur, Interviewer: I want to be clear about what you’re saying. This is very important. You’re saying only Muslims count as innocent people.
Anjem Choudary: As far as Muslims are concerned you’re innocent if you … if you are a Muslim then you’re innocent in the eyes of God. If you’re a non-Muslim then you’re guilty of not believing in God. Yes, there were many ‘victims’ …
So, dear reader, it should come as no surprise to us – any of us – that the Islamic State of Iran says exactly the same as this creature – Anjem Choudary. If you’re Jewish, Christian or anything else non-Islamic a la Choudary and Iran, be kind to democracy, while you’ve still got it.
MANAMA — Iran sought on Saturday to calm the fears of its Arab neighbours, saying it would never use force against them because they are Muslims, after the United States highlighted concerns over Tehran’s suspected nuclear weapons programme.
Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki was speaking at a conference on Middle East security at which Jordan’s King Abdullah II said Israeli-Palestinian peace talks must be rescued from collapse to ensure regional and world stability.
“We have never used our force against our neighbours and never will because our neighbours are Muslims,” Mottaki told journalists on the sidelines of the Manama Dialogue, which US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton opened on Friday.
“Your power in the region is our power and our power is your power.”
Clinton had said US concerns over Tehran’s nuclear programme are shared by Iran’s neighbours in the Gulf, through which most of the world’s oil flows.
Mottaki cautioned against submitting to “pressure by outsiders to divide us and create instability,” saying “the presence of foreign powers will not help establish security in the region” and urging cooperation among Gulf countries.
He said it was vital for Iran to “have stability and security, because we (Iran and its neighbours) provide the world with most of its energy.”
“Iran is determined to guarantee international security in the field of energy.”
Clinton said “there is no debate in the international community, and perhaps the Iranians will engage seriously… on what is a concern shared by nations on every continent, but most particularly right here in the region.”
She was referring to talks due to start between major powers and Iran in Geneva on Monday over Tehran’s nuclear programme.
“Because obviously if you’re the neighbour of a country that is pursuing nuclear weapons, that is viewed in a much more threatening way than if you’re a concerned country many thousands of miles away. But the concern is the same and we hope that Iran will respond.”
The Manama Dialogue comes as US diplomacy reels over State Department cables published by WikiLeaks.
Some of the most prominent headlines highlighted widespread fears among Arab countries in the Gulf about Iran’s nuclear programme and their calls to nip it in the bud.
The United States and other Western states, along with Israel, suspect Iran is using a nuclear energy programme as cover for building a bomb. Tehran strongly denies that.
Mottaki told the conference, “it is our right to create fuel, and to deprive us from our right is scientific apartheid.”
On Friday, Clinton urged Iran to be constructive in Geneva.
“We hope that you will come to it, as we will, in good faith and prepared to engage constructively on your nuclear programme,” she said.
The talks will bring Iran together with the P5+1 grouping of UN Security Council permanent members Britain, China, France, Russia and the United States plus Germany.
For his part, King Abdullah said “our region will not enjoy security and stability unless we solve the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, and Arabs, Muslims and Israelis find peace.”
“If hope is killed, radical forces will prevail. The region will sink into more vicious warfare and instability, threatening security far beyond the borders of the Middle East,” he warned.
“This is why it is essential that we rescue the new round of negotiations between the Palestinians and Israel,” he said of direct peace talks launched in September in Washington.
The talks have ground to a halt as Israel refused Palestinian demands to impose a new moratorium on settlement construction in the occupied West Bank.
A 10-month freeze expired on September 26, shortly after the launch of the latest round of negotiations.
The king said “the building of settlements has to stop,” and he urged Israeli and Palestinian negotiators to resume “serious negotiations” on all pending issues namely borders, security and refugees.
“The alternative is new conflicts that will reverberate far beyond the borders of the Middle East.”
On Friday Clinton told reporters in Manama that Washington is “working intensively” to break the impasse in Palestinian-Israeli talks.
She later said in an interview aired by the US Arabic-language satellite television Al-Hurra that Washington would make announcements next week about the peace process but she declined to give more details.

“All countries need a leader who isn’t afraid to fight terrorism. I believe Mr. Blair did a necessary job in helping his allies. Are we all just supposed to lie down and wait for them to come for us, I don’t think so.”
And – “Mr. Blair is one of the finest politicians to have had the privilege of serving the United Kingdom, and Britons are fortunate to have had him as their Prime Minister. Time will show that Mr. Blair’s approach to affairs in the Middle East were and remain correct. From a member of the Commonwealth, thank you, Mr. Blair, for your continued service to legitimate and lasting (and not convenient or politically expedient) freedom.”
AND – “Tony Blair was the greatest Prime Minister since Winston Churchill and the only regret I have he didn’t get my vote as I live in Canada.”
AND – “I am sick and tired of television and radio interviewers asking the same old questions over and over, regarding the decision to go to war in Iraq, presumably they hope Mr Blair will let slip some secret information which they would then use against him. History will show if the decision was the right one, (I believe it was) but people must accept that Tony Blair is an honourable man, and made his decision based on the known facts and not with the benefit of 20/20 hindsight.”
