The new "Conservative" Iranian President

Because I am in a rush (sorry!), these few posts will be borrowed from their sources. Sorry for the lack of innovation, but you really should know this stuff.

From LGF yesterday:

From Hostage-Taker to President

The newly “elected” president of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, was a key figure in the 1979 takeover of the US embassy in Tehran; here’s a photograph of Ahmadinejad holding the arm of a blindfolded American hostage: AP Photo shows Iran’s new President as 1979 US hostage-taker.

UPDATE at 6/29/05 8:21:15 am:

Here’s another photo of Ahmadinejad with the same hostage:

And here is another post from yesterday:

Iran: "A New Islamic Revolution Has Arisen"

Iran’s new “president,” Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, says his “election victory” marked the start of a new Islamic revolution that will soon conquer the world: President invokes new Islamic wave. (Hat tip: All Things Conservative.)

“Thanks to the blood of the martyrs, a new Islamic revolution has arisen and the Islamic revolution of 1384 [the current Iranian year] will, if God wills, cut off the roots of injustice in the world,” he said. “The wave of the Islamic revolution will soon reach the entire world.”

Oh, and one more thing (this is Yishai talking) CBS News is interviewing hostages who are verifying this (link: here). The hostages who were taken in 1979 said they knew this guy immediately, and their blood turned cold. They also said he was a leader of the hostage taking.
