In reading the open letter to the American people from Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, one glaring word jumps out at me ... that is his call for monotheism, as in ONE religious belief worldwide. That is one ideology that should cause grave concern to all, in that certain extremist Islamic sects believe that all people must accept Islam as their only faith in order to be spared death ... literally. In his use of the word "monotheism", it appears that Ahmadinejad is of that conviction.

Another of his comments is like a sound bite from one of Hitler's speeches ... in referring to the "Zionists" as having "imposed themselves on a substantial portion of the banking, financial, cultural and media sectors." This is the identical rhetoric Hitler used in order to incite antisemitism.

These two comments give me pause as to the true intent hidden within Ahmadinejad's letter, and I hope people are wise enough to think carefully, and remember hisory, before accepting that olive branch.

I can agree after reading it myself. I was the obvious victim of Spin Control again, only this time is was at the mercy of the news media. Instead of making it sound bad as the US Government would they only pointed out points of the letter that would interest us into thinking it was all honor and fellowship.

I was going to mention that on the next show....
