Iran-US-Ahmadinejad's Letter

President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has written a letter to the US President George W. Bush.

"The letter to US President George Bush carries the Iranian nation's views and comments on international issues as well as suggestions for resolving many problems facing humanity," said the Iranian president here Tuesday upon his departure for Indonesia to attend a meeting of the D-8 (Group of eight developing Muslim states).

The letter was submitted to President Bush via the Swiss embassy in Tehran, which takes care of the US interests in Iran.

The following is the main points of Ahmadinejad's letter to George Bush:

* European investigators have confirmed the existence of secret prisons in Europe. How such actions correspond to the liberal values?

* Are the ways to treat with prisoners in Guantanamo Bay based on the tradition of Jesus Christ (PBUH), the Messenger of peace and forgiveness?

* Is support for a regime which does not show mercy even on kids and keeps thousands of Palestinians in prison based on liberal values?

* Are those who support a regime that announces beforehand its list and plans to assassinate Palestinian figures and at the same time chant anti-terrorism slogans faithful?

* Is allowing the original inhabitants of the Palestinian lands to etermine their fate, runs counter to principles of democracy, human rights and the teachings of prophets?

* Why are all UN Security Council resolutions in condemnation of Israel vetoed?

* Aside from the Middle Ages, in what other point in history has scientific and technical progress been a crime?

* The brave and faithful people of Iran want to know why billions of dollars of its assets have been frozen in the US.

* The Iranian nation wants to know why Washington supported Saddam regime in the 1980-88 Iraqi imposed war against Iran.

* The Iranian people want to know why the Iranian passenger plane was shot down.

* Could the September 11 incident be planned and executed without coordination with intelligence and security services or their extensive infiltration?

* Why those elements responsible for the September 11 incident are not identified and put on trial?

* Is intensifying the climate of fear and insecurity to the benefit of the American people?

* What has the hundreds of billions of dollars, spent every year to pay for the Iraq campaign, produced for the American citizens?
* Israel was established at the cost of murdering of thousands of people and homelessness of millions of others.

* Why is a regime which does not show mercy even on kids and destroys houses while the occupants are still in them supported by the US?
* Is support for the Zionist regime in line with the teachings of Jesus Christ (PBUH) or Moses (PBUH) or liberal values?

* Spending hundreds of billions of dollars every year to pay for the Iraq campaign cannot be justified by the American citizens.

* The people will judge whether we were on the side of people or the occupiers and oppressors.

* Liberalism and Western style democracy have not been able to help realize the ideals of humanity. Today these two concepts have failed.

* Those with insight can already hear the sounds of the shattering and fall of the ideology and thoughts of the Liberal democratic systems.

* All independent observes have confirmed that the newly elected Palestinian administration represents the electorate. Unbelievably, they have put the elected government under pressure and have advised it to recognize the Israeli regime, abandon the struggle and follow the programs of the previous government.

* September 11 was a horrendous incident. The killing of innocents is deplorable and appalling in any part of the world. Our government immediately declared its disgust with the perpetrators and offered its condolences to the bereaved and expressed its sympathies.

* After September 11 incident, instead of healing the wounds of the survivors and the American people some Western media only intensified the climate of fear and insecurity - some constantly talked about the possibility of new terror attacks and kept the people in fear. Was that in line with serving the American people?

* How long must the people of the world pay for the incorrect decisions of some rulers? How much longer will the specter of insecurity - raised from the stockpiles of weapons of mass destruction -- hunt the people of the world? How much longer will the blood of the innocent men, women and children be spilled on the streets, and people's houses destroyed over their heads?
The next generations will judge whether we managed to bring peace, security and prosperity to the people or we only provided them with insecurity and unemployment.

* Did we intend to establish justice or just supported special interest groups, and by forcing many people to live in poverty and hardship, made a few people rich and powerful -- thus trading the approval of the people and the Almighty with theirs?

* Did we defend the rights of the underprivileged or ignore them? Did we defend the rights of all people around the world or imposed wars on them, interfered illegally in their affairs, established hellish prisons and incarcerated some of them?

* Did we tell the truth to our nation and others around the world or presented an inverted version of it?

* Did our administrations set out to promote rational behavior, logic, ethics, peace, fulfilling obligations, justice, service to the people, prosperity, progress and respect for human dignity or the force of guns, intimidation, insecurity, disregard for the people, delaying the progress and excellence of other nations, and trample on people's rights?

* If Prophet Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Ismael, Joseph, or Jesus Christ (PBUH) were with us today, how would they have judged such behavior?

* Is there no better way to interact with the rest of the world? Today there are hundreds of millions of Christians, hundreds of millions of Muslims and millions of people who follow the teachings of Moses (PBUH). All divine religions share and respect one word and that is "monotheism" or belief in a single God and no other in the world.

Will you not accept this invitation?

* The people of the world are not happy with the status quo and pay little heed to the promises and comments made by a number of influential world leaders. Many people around the world feel insecure and oppose the spread of insecurity and war and do not approve the dubious policies.

* The people of the world have no faith in international organizations, because their rights are not advocated by these organizations.
