This is how it played in Tehran:
TEHRAN (Reuters) - President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad may have faced ridicule in the United States by suggesting there were no homosexuals in Iran, but he won praise at home on Wednesday for taking his country's case to "the Lion's Den."
Generally, politicians and media in the Islamic Republic -- even some who have previously criticized the president -- described Ahmadinejad's visit to New York as a triumph and denounced the university president who called him "a petty and cruel dictator."This is what Joel Rosenberg had to say on the Glenn Beck Show on Monday, September 24, 2007:
"When Ahmadinejad was elected in June of 2005, he began telling people that the end of the world was just two or three years away and that the way to hasten the coming of the Mahdi, the Islamic messiah, was to annihilate Israel, the Little Satan, in his view, and the United States, the Great Satan. And now we are two years into that, right? We`re now in the fall of 2007, two years later. We don`t know exactly his timetable, but we know what he`s been doing over the last two years: building military alliances with Russia, China and North Korea, three nuclear powers; building 3,000, that we know of, centrifuges to enrich uranium; and building alliances with Syria and Hezbollah in southern Lebanon to prepare for this annihilation."
Rosenberg adds in another part of the show, the following comments:
"But the 12th imam does not come back to Iran. This is critical that you understand this, because both Osama bin Laden say this is important, and President Tom says this is important. Where does the 12th imam return?"
It is so strategic that we are in Iraq. You can understand the hatred of the United States of America by these fanatics, because our soldier's boots are on the Holy ground of where their 12th Imam is going to return.
If the Democrats and those who are allied with them, have their way and we pull out of Iraq, there will be a genocide and bloodbath of unparalleled proportions. It will be a fight for the heart and soul of that nation. Their blood will be upon those who do not understand what they are doing.
My friends, this is no madman in Iran, but an instrument of evil that is possibly going to usher in the great battle of Ezekiel 38. Note his alliances, and they fit perfectly with those enemies that will attempt to destroy Israel, either at Armageddon at Megiddo, or the enemies from the North and East, Iran, Russia and China.
