Ahmadinejad "Re-Elected"

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has been "re-elected" with 61.6% of the vote.

However, many in Iran don't see it that way and there have been massive protests on the streets of Tehran which were swiftly put down by Ahamdinejad's thugs.

From The Daily Telegraph:

With no international observers present in Iran's elections, the supporters of Mr Mousavi know there is little chance that any alleged skulduggery will be revealed, never mind rectified. But as they chatted on the streets on Saturday, they noted all manner of suspicious things.

Why had Iran's text message system been switched off since Friday, the system they used to organise rallies? Why was the BBC Persian website blocked, along with a number of other reformist websites normally available? And most curious of all, why did Iran's official new agency announce early in the morning that Mr Ahmadinejad had already only won, when at that time, only 20 per cent of the vote had been counted.

So to borrow a phrase from Bill O'Reilly let me ask President Obama, "What say you?"

The mullahs and this regime isn't going anywhere regardless of what the Iranian people want.

If they are prepared to react with such violence against their own people I shudder to think what they are prepared to do to Israel.

Do we really want Iran to have a nuclear weapon?

Are you still prepared to talk to this regime without precondition?

If President Obama says yes to either question then he will be making the biggest mistake of his life and it will be Israel that pays for his mistake.
