Is Iran Turning Eastward?

Iran’s Foreign M inister Manuchehr Mottaki told visiting Chinese Assistant Foreign Ministe Zhai Jun, the two nations should consider the possibility of creating an Asian Union that would serve as a counter weight to American and European power establishments. He also said his nation and China were seeking to expand their trade relations and he praised China for making aggressive moves in Africa to assume control over energy resources. Zhai responded that his country is pleased at “Iran’s growth of power in the region and the international aena.”

Zhai rejected claims from an AP sotry that his nation has passed on inteligence about Iran’s nuclear program to the Internatioanl Atomic Energy Agency. “China has not sent the agency any reports about Iran’s nuclear program.” He also invited President Ahmadinejad to the Olympic Games.

There is little doubt China is expanding its influence and contacts with Iran. The world may condenm the Iranian government but China intends to support a nation with extensive energy resources to help fuel its own expanding economy. This is merely another example of a failed American foreign policy whose attempt to isolate Iran only serves to allow China to become more intimately involved with that nation.

    No wonder Iran is moving away from the hostile west, where the west’s politics is infiltrated by the zionists and jews who serve the interests of Israel and not the western countries and the people of the west! western politics seem to follow the aganda of the israelis blindly at any cost to the western tax payers. what has the west gained from a bunch of land theives in Israel? Nothing by trouble!!

    Perhaps, some study of history might assist you to get a handle on the Middle East. The Iraq war was an idea of George Bush, not Israel. In fact, all evidence is Israeli leaders opposed the war in Iraq, they would have preferred a war against Iran. British and American policies that focused on oil predate the existence of Israel. British blunders in Iraq and Saudi Arabia predate the existence of Israel. Want to try reading a book before you blame everything on Israel?

    who wrote the book that you have read? a Jew??? Israel hit the Iraqi nuke facility before the war began. sadam was more of the a threat to Israel than Iran was. Iraq as an Arab country counl mobilise the other Arab countries to fight the Israeli land thieves, that is the reason sadam had to be removed. who better than the Americans to do the dirty jobs for the Israelis, while they sit back and watch the Americans die for Israel, for a bunch of murderous land thieves!

    As I wrote, your ignorance of Middle Eastern history is only surpassed by your filthy anti-semitism. Unfortunately, you apparently have never read any history of the Middle East. Saddam Hussein was detested by just about every other Middle Eastern nation.

    The taking over of land and calling it a country may fool some people but occupation will always be occupation. Israel will never be accepted and this zionist movement is just another name for the Nazis. Right will always be right and therefore Iran will always defend against your tactics. The west may have kept the sunni muslim countries quiet but not the shia. They will always emerge victorious and the final victory will be theirs.

    I gather you have a point to make. What is it?

  • ali

    The point is its not your God given right to kill innocent people in a mass genocide and call it your own country. Thats what you call terrorism. The difference between you and Al Qaeda? Not a lot my friend. Another point is what goes up must come down and terrorists will never win :o )

  • ali

    Another point is you cannot defeat Hezbollah. Forget about trying to defeat Iran. You cannot defeat someone who has the power of God behind them. Remember what happened in 1979 when american warplanes were sent to Iran to bomb her? Lets see how good your history is.

    Believe it or not, I am quite familiar with your reference. You live in fantasy if you believe God will ensure some sort of “victory”against planes. Iran is run by a group of medieval minded clerics who stifle free speech and free religion. Just remember the persecution of Baha’is in Iran.

  • ali

    Victory against planes? Please enhance your intellect. The victory will be over anyone who threatens to destroy Islam because the Religion of God can never be wiped off as America and Israel wishes. Very funny how you mention the stifling of free speech and free religion. How about taking a country.. killing more than half of the people in that country, naming it Israel and then declaring “This is our God given right”? Would you not call that persecution? Or how about the regular attacks on Palestinian Children and using them as human shields by the cowardly “army” who cannot even defeat Hezbollah. Iran is out of your league. I just hope illegal state of Israel doesnt get out of its own depth and tries to attack Iran as the illegal state will be destroyed and the zionists will have to find a new country to overtake. Forget about the euphrates to the nile, the Zionist plan will never work. Medieval to you modern to other, the clerics are just representatives of the Imam who will come alongside Jesus and restore world peace very soon. Remember him? The zionists persecuted him too.

    ALI YOU’VE GOT IT SPOT ON. YOU TELL THAT FRED HOW IT IS

    I have always supported the rights of Palestinians and oppose Israel policies on the West Bank. You have absolutely no evidence to support a wild claim about “killing more than half of the people in that country.” Please give dates about such an alleged massacre.
    For the record, in the 1896 census of Jerusalem by the Ottoman empire, it revealed, 24,000 Jews, 9,000 Muslims, and 9,000 Christians. You have no evidence to support your statements.
    I continue supporting Palestinian efforts to secure borders based on 1967.
