Iran: Sitting with Ahmadinejad at the Same Table?

Speaking in Israel, President George W Bush cited the remarks of a U.S. Senator who proposed in 1939 that he could have negotiated with Hitler to avert the Nazi invasion of Poland. The American President continued: “We have an obligation to call this what it is—the false comfort of appeasement, which has been repeatedly discredited by history” – prompting presidential hopeful Barack Obama to condemn Bush for launching a ‘false political attack.’ Several Iranian bloggers reacted to Bush's remarks and the Democrats’ reaction to it.

Iranian blogger, Voacapitol says [Fa] that Senator Josef Liberman, who supported President Bush's remarks, asked how Obama could sit at the same table with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the Iranian President who sends weapons to Hamas, Hizbollah or other terrorist groups?

The blogger adds although White House speaker Dana Periono says Bush did not mean Obama, many politicians believe he was the target. Republican candidate John McCain also said he did not think Bush was talking about Obama but that Bush must explain what he wanted to say to Ahmadinejad, whom he called a ‘corrupted corpse.’

Another blogger, Vahshateh Marg, which translates to Fear of Death, believes [Fa] that Bush's comments were targeted towards both Ahmadinejad and Obama. He adds:

The Democrats already reacted to Bush's Speech. Now we should wait for Ahmadinejad's reaction to that.

The blogger reminds us how several months ago, Mohmmad Javad Larijani, an Iranian politician (his brother was former chief Iranian negotiator on Iranian nuclear program), told a reporter about negotiating with the US: “If we find ourselves in the heart of hell, we will negotiate even with Satan.”

Khomenei's Generation says [Fa] that Jewish communities in the United States are afraid of Obama because they consider him a disciple of Noam Chomsky! He adds:

I remember 10 or 11 years ago, Iranian Leader [ Ali Khamenei] predicted that everything will start the moment that the American people will come to the streets and take the power out of the hands of the Zionists in the USA!
