From the May 2006 Idaho Observer:
Dearest Your Exellency Mr. President GW Bush:
Iranian president sends open letter to U.S. president; cites contradictions, recommends walking Christian talk
On May 9, 2006, a letter from Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadi-Najad to U.S. President George Bush was released in email and read by millions of people all over the world. The intent of the letter, which printed out to eight pages, was clearly stated in a tone that was firm—yet respectful; hopeful for peace but resolved should diplomacy fail and President Bush chooses to attack Iran.
The central theme of the letter was to help President Bush see the contradictions of his professed faith as a follower of Jesus Christ and his actions as president. President Ahmadi-Najad described what has happened in the Middle East and the rest of the world since 9/11and reminded President Bush that, "History tells us that repressive and cruel governments do not survive."
Those throughout the world who have commented on the letter believe President Ahmadi-Najad’s purpose was to humble the Bush administration before the world community, thus opening channels of diplomatic communications in the interest of sparing the world of further U.S.-instigated death, destruction and misery.
The president himself has never publicly acknowledged receipt of the letter, but White House spokesman Scott McClellan dismissed the letter without acknowledging its content as an Iranian ploy to protect its nuclear program.
Russian President Vladimir Putin echoed President Ahmadi-Najad’s sentiments in a May 8, 2006 address to his parliament, suggesting that the U.S. preaches democracy and human rights to the rest of the world while forsaking those ideals when its own interests are at stake.
Russian/U.S. relations are cooling while Russian/Chinese and Iranian governments are cementing trade and defense ties. Russia and China recently backed Iran during the anticipated UN Security Council hearing and Iran has agreed to allow UN inspectors’ access to its nuclear power development program, effectively dashing U.S. hopes that the UN will approve a military strike against Iranian nuclear facilities.
