Stop Fundamentalism – If the Iranian mullahs could get along with the international community, the regime would have never turned into an anomaly for the West as it has right now.
The reactions you see from the mullahs to the European Foreign Ministers meeting is a reflection of this reality.
As the ministers were meeting in Brussels, Mottaki, Iranâ€™s Foreign Minister was meeting with the ambassadors of France, Briton, and Germany in Tehran and was presenting them the â€œIslamic Republicâ€™s expectations.â€
Mottaki, rejected European demands in advance and said, â€œAny call for suspension, is illogical and unacceptable and would undoubtedly be rejected.â€ He adds, â€œThe new European package should include recognition of Iranâ€™s nuclear rights.â€
After the release and publication of the European Union statement that stressed on suspension of enrichment and research, Asefi, the spokesperson for Iranâ€™s Foreign Ministry, called the statement â€œirresponsibleâ€ and the incentives offered, a â€œunacceptable.â€ He continued that â€œthe Islamic Republic is determined to get its rights. â€œ
Further more, the spokesman for the Securities and Foreign Policies Committee of the mullahsâ€™ Parliament said Tuesday, â€œthe America and the Europe should consider Iran a nuclear power now!â€ He added, â€œEuropeans should not repeat their pervious offers.â€
What should be understood about mullahsâ€™ tactics and deceptions is that they would use all types of deliberations and offers by the West as means for â€œacquiring enough time to advance in the enrichment activities.â€
And finally, Iranâ€™s hardline President, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, enters the scene today calling the Europeanâ€™s offer childish. â€œThey think they are facing a four-year-old child and that they can take away our gold and give us some nuts and chocolate in exchange,â€ Said Ahmadinejad in Arak nuclear site today in reaction to the offer of a light water reactor by the European Union in exchange for the Iranian regime to agree to suspend all enrichment activities.
But if we are supposed to consider the international communityâ€™s willingness to bet even further on mullahsâ€™ commitments to respect Europeanâ€™s demands, serious and then listen to what the senior officials of the regime have been saying for the past few days, we have to conclude that those who continue to support appeasement are simply wasting their time.
What is more important to not let go unnoticed is that even the new levels of European benevolence, which one must admit is unprecedented, is merely Poisson for the mullahs and they smell their own death from it.
Ahmadinejadâ€™s comments today as well as the comments by the Iranian regimeâ€™s Foreign Minister yesterday would simply prove that no matter how much incentive is given to the mullahsâ€™ regime, it would not abandon its nuclear weapons program.
