Ahmadinejad Says Nukes are Religiously Forbidden

February 15, 9:44 AM NY Israel Conflict Examiner Richard Shulman

Iran’s President Ahmadinejad expressed views on several matters, such as nuclear weapons and the Iranian revolution.

He said that the A-bomb era is over, because nobody can use them [probably referring to the notion of mutually assured destruction]. He suggests that the world eliminate them.

Ahmadinejad described the Iranian revolution as humane, its predecessor not humane, not independent, and not taking care of its people’s welfare (, 2/13).

If nobody can use A-bombs, why should the world become nuclear-weapons-free? If he believes that, why is his regime violating its nuclear treaty to the point of suffering sanctions, in order to take steps that appear leading to nuclear weapons? There are flaws in his logic. Nor did he explain how he would not use such weapons while at the same time he holds to a religious theory that if he brings on Armageddon, Islam would win.

If the Iranian revolution is humane, why is it torturing and executing protesters against it? Again, if humane, why sponsor terrorism against Iraq, Lebanon, and Israel, among other places?

He is spending much on military development, just as did the Shah before the revolution. I agree that the Shah had brutal secret police, too, but thought he was independent.
