E-mail Dr. Mahmoud Ahmadi Nejad
"Iraq is the convergence point for two of the greatest threats to America in this new century: Al-Qaeda and Iran," President Bush said April 10, 2008.
I was thinking about this statement and other hyperbole and warmongering rhetoric from our leaders, and was contemplating what can American citizens do to (in)validate the rhetoric and if it is true (or not) what we can do to alleviate it.
This comment from President Bush relies on the media for delivery and perhaps we too should rely on the media to deliver back. Perhaps we should e-mail the President of Iran directly for clarification. He does have an e-mail and if enough of us – in the spirit of peace – bombard (no pun intended) him with e-mails we might be able to get an adequate response that could then be used for a media campaign aimed (again, no pun intended) back to our own leaders who seem to be thirsty for MORE war.
There are a few questions we should ask him. We should ask him these questions because this fundamental approach does not seem to have been attempted judging by our media.
Taking this very seriously, what questions would you ask him?
A few of my questions:
Question 1: Is Iran a threat to the United States of America; does your country mean us any harm?
Question 2: It has been reported that in May 2003 “Iran offered in 2003 to accept peace with Israel and to cut off material assistance to Palestinian armed groups and pressure them to halt terrorist attacks within Israel’s 1967 borders, according to the secret Iranian proposal to the United States. The two-page proposal for a broad Iran-U.S. agreement covering all the issues separating the two countries.” Does this offer still stand?
Question 3: What kind of peace offer can be facilitated between Iran, the United States and Israel?
Question 4: What are your countries conditions?
Question 5: Mohammed el Baradei of the IAEA has proposed FISSBAN. Is Iran still willing to accept this so as to prevent the dangers of nuclear weapons?
Question 6: Does Iran have any conditions to FISSBAN?
