Yesterday there was an interview with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Euronews. I would recommend watching the interview itself to get the full impact on just the level of crazy this leader is able spout, however the easiest is to read the transcript. Just like how former Dear Leader Bush coined a number of Bushisms, the Iranians does not like coming in second and have sent their best contender.

(It should be noted that the President of Iran has a very weak position as the majority of the power in the country lies with the Ayatollah Khamenei and the religious leadership.)

A few of the most lol quotes:

"A completely free election was held in Iran. It was the most free election in the world."

"Those who express their views about the basic European issues are imprisoned."

(Regarding demonstrators in Europe) "There is no one there listening to them. Accept my word.”

(Comparing Greece and Spain to Iran) “No, no. the situation is much worse in Europe….”

"The Iranian people are paying the price for the erroneous policies of the European leaders.”

“These are the erroneous policies of the European leaders. We haven’t done anything wrong."

"We’re a free society in which everyone can express his or her views. There’s no problem there."

"The judiciary in Iran is independent."

“Nobody is in prison just for expressing their views."

“Is nuclear activity forbidden?”

And the clincher:

“The production of uranium at 20 per cent is just for peaceful purposes."

"some leaders have had such bad relationships with their own people and that they ended up at this point" "which separates some government from their people" "the point to the people to the sake to reaching a degree of their freedom, would have to ask for the trial of their leaders"

Arcus - have you seen this?

Not that one specifically, but not exactly major news from that front... Blame everyone for your own despair - it's emblematic of how many religious people think.
