Taking the Ahmadinejad debate challenge

By Dave Weinbaum

http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | Iran's' leader, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, (Ah'm Mad), has challenged President Bush to a debate.

Bush, a busy man, is fighting a vicious never ending war.with the liberal press, the Supreme Court, and congressional democrats. Then there's the war on terror in Iran (OOPS! Mebad!) I mean Iraq, silly me. Finally his duties require he give some attention to al-Qeada, and all the other jihadists sworn to our genocide!

Let's not forget the siege of illegals swarming our southern Border. Guess that one slipped his otherwise steel-trap mind.

Face it; our President is busier than Bill Clinton in a room of 20 year old interns.

So on behalf of President Bush and freedom loving people from throughout the world, I accept the Iranian President's debate dare.

Here's the deal, Ah'm Mad, I lose you get to make your nukes. You lose; you cut the genocidal crap and become an honest peace broker to insure the safety of Israel and all her neighbors and allies, including the USA. We're talking treaties here, not lip service.

Sometimes you have to go out on a limb to turn over a new leaf

I know, I know, I risk Ah'm Mad's accusation that, "I know George Bush. George Bush was a friend of mine. Dave, you're no George W. Bush."

He's right, you know. After all, George cleaned Al Gores' clock in three straight debates and Kerry in two out of three.

Other than my diatribes with fellow high school wrestler, Stuttering Newtie, in the back of the school bus, on road matches, I have no "official" debate experience. Newtie kicked my butt on most occasions, stutter and all, but only because he had better "Your Mama." insults.

Based on the above, I get to set the rules and subjects.

Weinbaums' issues, based on Ah'm Mad's quotes:

Quote 1: "Anybody who recognizes Israel will burn in the fire of Islamic nation's fury."

  • Jews lived in Iran 1,000 years before there was a Muslim. By your own logic, Ah'm Mad, if you espouse Jews displaced a Palestinian population, that was there before 1948 but can't prove an independent country run by them, as Israelis can, you must turn over Iran to the Jews, and Persians immediately. They lived there a thousand years before there was a Muslim. Oh and BTW, you don't get to take the oil with you.

    Quote 2: "No doubt the new wave (of attacks) in Palestine will soon wipe off this disgraceful blot (Israel) from the face of the Islamic world."

  • Guess you were referring to the recent Lebanese war started by your puppet, Hezbollah. Seems to me that you got the wrong country destroyed. Also, there were a hell of a lot of Hezbos and the civilians they hid behind, killed. Not one inch of Israeli territory was captured.

  • Your pathetic attempts to target civilians with your ball bearing filled missiles, was duly witnessed by the UN members you're now trying to convince to let you develop your nukes.

  • You ought to apologize to the Lebanese and take your Hezbo fighters back where they belong, Tehran. Maybe they could raid another embassy, like you and the boys did in '79 against America. I hear the French Embassy is ripe for the picking. You could personally lead the Hezbos on THAT mission, couldn't you, Ah'm Mad? France won't be upset. They'll probably send you a Renault dealership and a case of Champagne (alcohol free, of course.)

    Quote 3: "The wave of the Islamic revolution will soon reach the entire world."

  • Finally, a point we agree with. Heck, it's already here! Can you loudly repeat the above, for the liberals in the audience? They have their heads stuck so deep in the sand; they threaten finding a new oil field any second.

    Quote 4: "Today students should shout at the president and ask why liberal and secular university lecturers are present in the universities."

  • Aw, did your profs object to your nasty little Holocaust cartoon show? We don't debate within Iran, do we? Now here's something we can get together on. We have a slew of the type of lecturers you'd be interested in. Just get David Horowitz's book, "The Professors: the 101 Most Dangerous Academics in America." We'll make a trade!

Finally, Ah'm Mad, you should know, I'm no Mike Wallace, either.

Your coat sucks and, your hair is messy and, and.Your Mama wears a burhka!!!

Newtie would be proud.
