Ahmadinejad's reasons for wanting to visit 9/11

Hat tip to Hot Air and LGF, both of which has a link to the video which can be found at MEMRI.

The transcript of Ahmadinejad's reasoning for wanting to visit ground zero is here.

The lunatic's words:

Following are excerpts from an interview with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, which aired on the Iranian news channel on September 29, 2007:

: You were supposed to visit the site of the Twin Towers, but this aroused controversy and many objections in their media. What do you think about this?

LUNATIC: As you know, by spreading lies and by portraying me... For example, they show my picture next to a picture of Bin Laden, or next to tanks and cannons firing and killing people. This is psychological warfare.

9/11 has led to many significant changes. It was used as a pretext to occupy Afghanistan and Iraq. It was the reason for the killing of hundreds of thousands of people. It is only natural for us to respond in an appropriate manner. I wanted to visit there last year, but there was no time for that. So I decided to visit there this year to pay my respect to the casualties and convey my sympathy to the families.

I also wanted to raise several questions and express my views. I wanted to say that in my opinion, this incident is the result of the mismanagement of the world, and the result of the inhuman management of the world. Why did such an incident take place? We need to get to the root causes. We don't want them to turn this incident, in 20 years' time, into another false idol like the Holocaust, which they would use as a pretext to kill peoples, and prevent anybody from opening this [Pandora's] box and examining what really happened in this incident. They might turn 9/11 into something sacred, and whoever does not accept it would be considered an infidel, whereas whoever accepts it would have to accept all the ensuing crimes.

In any event, we must express our views. I believe that this way, we would have formed cordial relations with the American people, and cold have opened this issue up for discussion. Well, this is exactly what they want to prevent.

I guess all of our concerns about his using a trip to 9/11 for nothing more than propaganda has been proven beyond a doubt now.

Calling the Holocaust, for anyone that knows anything at all about the holocaust, a "false idol" shows the depth of the lunatic, Ahmadinejad's, denial and insanity.

The documentation and evidence is unchallenged and indisputable and he only makes himself look as ignorant and insane as he he really is when he says things like that.

To think that America will look any differently at the mass murder of 3,000 people on 9/11, in twenty years, as they did on 9/12, is also incredibly asinine and geared at nobody but the farthest left liberals in the Democratic party.

Worse yet is the comment:

"They might turn 9/11 into something sacred"...

The lives lost that day were and will continue to be sacred, as they should be. The memory of that day, the millions of people across the world sitting at their televisions, watching in horror and disbelief as the pictures of those planes hitting the towers were shown, minute after minute, hour after hour and day after day.

Those memories are sacred. They remind us what types of monsters we are dealing with. Ahmadinejad wishes we would forget, and some already seem to have, but others will never forget and will never go back to believing that it "can't happen to us".

Those with a brain understand very clearly, it has and it can again.
