Noisy minority cannot dominate silent majority.
The ball of the time is the election in Iran. Against all of the American, English and Israeli government's expectations, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad won the election. The supporting of Mir Hossein Mousavi answered the result, they accomplished violent manifestations and they were repressed by the authorities.
Mousavi, favorite candidate for the Occident, is newspaper proprietor and it used it to boast supposed irregularities in the elections. The newspaper was closed and this caused reaction of the international media. A candidate to use his newspaper in own benefit it should not cause a larger reaction?
The international press seems to have aligned Mousavi and it harasses Ahmadinejad openly and most of the Iranians that voted for him.
I don't like nor hate the president of Iran. I am, however, an ardent defender of the self-determination of the people. The Iranian people made his choice and the same should be respected. In reason of the result of the elections Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is the legitimate speaker from Iran. Nobody is entitled of ignoring this fact or it can destabilize that country just because his favorite candidate was defeated.
When attacking Ahmadinejad and their voters the media it despises the beginning of the self-determination of the people and plant the seeds of a new misfortune. Actually this already began. In reason of the behavior of the media that considers their frivolous second your criteria - we like or no the Iranians have all right of having their own habits and faiths - Iran began to restrict the international journalists' work and to return to the isolation.
The scruples of Iran in relation to the Occident are known and comprehensible. After all, all know that England and USA did of everything to drop Mossadeq. The journalists should know that are not few the Iranians that still has present in the memory the brutality of the Pahlevi's regime, that was dropped by a movement of which Mahmoud Ahmadinejad participated.
The isolation of Iran doesn't interest anybody. It doesn't especially interest to the Occident, because many country they want to buy Iranian petroleum and many more they need to sell products industrialized for Iran. But so that this distrust cycle and isolation is stopped or broken the Occident press needs to contain his aggressiveness in relation to Ahmadinejad. We have to admit that the reasons for the Iranians to have scruples in relation to the Occident were given by the own Occident. Is it that difficult to respect the will of the Iranian people and to negotiate with the leader that was chosen?
Ahmadinejad is unpleasant, he speaks things that we didn't like, but until the present moment has been maintaining a quite peaceful attitude. In spite of the nonsenses that he talked about Israel, the president of Iran didn't begin any armed conflict in the area. It is true that Ahmadinejad has been taking care of the defenses of his country, but it is exactly this that one could wait of any leader in reason of the illegitimate, illegal and unjustified escalade of American and English violence in Iraq.
The reaction of the USA media is comical. Did the journalists of the USA forget that Al Gore won the elections and George W. Bush president was done against the will of most of the Americans? Who legitimated irregularities in his own country cannot be pointing the finger in the nose of anybody. While the USA press doesn't make a 'mea culpa' it produce more laughters than indignation.
