Iran to Obama: Just abandon the Zionists

This is from a Los Angeles Times op-ed by Ali Akbar Javanfekr, the presidential advisor for press affairs to Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Note how he blames US policies on Israel.
Mr. Obama's efforts to replace aggressive rhetoric in official U.S. statements with the language of peace and mutual respect is a step forward. If this change of tone is also manifested practically in the official policies of the U.S., it will be an important step toward remedying the impaired image of the U.S. in the eyes of other nations.

The U.S. has too frequently in past decades resorted to violence, war and bloodshed around the world, in part because of its leaders' desire for hegemony and in part because of Zionism's manipulation of U.S. administrations.


The policies of previous U.S. administrations led to a rise in hatred, anger and worries. In all corners of the world, it is worth noting, the only flags being set ablaze belong to the U.S. and the occupying Zionist regime.

President Obama has proclaimed a policy of "change," and the American people have embraced it. But to remedy its image in the world, the U.S. needs to truly change its past methods.

Change is mandatory for the U.S. administration. For as history demonstrates, either you change, or you are forced to change.
Sounds just like Walt and Mearsheimer, doesn't he? Does he believe that Iran can force the US to abandon Israel? Or that Iran won't have to force the US to abandon Israel, because Obama will do it on his own?

If Obama does abandon Israel, then Israel is no longer obligated to act out of a consideration for America's interests as a superpower. A relationship is a two-way street. It involves mutual respect and understandings. If the US seeks to dictate to Israel, that is not a relationship. Hopefully, the US will keep that in mind if it wants Israel to show restraint in the neighborhood but if its going to go along with the rest of the world isolate Israel, that goes out of the window. The Jewish State should be no one's favorite whipping boy.
