Iran Calls out Obama on "Change"!!
As soon as President Obama got into office he announced that he was going to reach out to the Muslim world. First he sent a message to the Taliban in an effort to find "moderate" members. In response the Taliban told that they have a goal and that there is nothing to talk about. That is strike one Obama. Obama's next move was to try and catch the Iranian leaders in a festive mood, as he sent them a video message on the Iranian holiday Nowruz, the Persian New Year. Recently the President of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad had demanded an apology from Obama for 60 years of US "crimes" against Iran. Today the man with the real power in Iran Ayatollah Ali Khamenei who stands even above the President of Iran sent Obama this return message today.
"They chant the slogan of change but no change is seen in practice. We haven't seen any change," Khamenei said in a speech before a crowd of tens of thousands in the northeastern holy city of Mashhad.
"He (Obama) insulted the Islamic Republic of Iran from the first day. If you are right that change has come, where is that change? What is the sign of that change? Make it clear for us what has changed."
That is strike two Obama. Who will be strike three, Hamas or Hezbollah? I guess that the voters were wrong about Obama. His Muslim background is not changing a thing in the world.
