Adelaide, 3 July 2005
Thank you, again, for your perceptive comment, but I think you worry unnecessarily.
1. My attitude towards the Muslim world - towards Islam - is on record. My latest public utterance of any relevance in support of the Muslim world was published by MEHR NEWS on 21 June and in the Tehran Times the next day.
2. My attitude towards the Palestinian tragedy is well publicised on our website.
3. Your concerns miss the point in that recipients of Adelaide Institute's emails know we attempt to disseminate information as objectively and with as varied view-points as possible. We attempt to 'show' information rather than preach information to our readers. This implies that we expect our readers critically to think and self-reflect on anything they may find of interest coming from us. Sometimes we even send through our list 'non-serious' information, something that has upset some of our readers.
4. We publish Zionist Barry Chamish's material because he insightfully locks into and describes universal human forms of behaviour that are life-denying.
5. Only hesitatingly are we beginning to touch religious topics, thereby acknowledging the powerful combination that results when religious and political matters are treated as one - without separating temporal and spiritual powers, as is the habit in our so-called western democracies. The realization is there now that President Bush's constant reiteration of 'freedom and democracy' is another concept for 'proxy war for Jewish interests', but not only. We need now to re-think these meaningless concepts and evaluate their use within a larger world view as presented by the USA administration.
6. Ultimately we support any world view - Weltanschauung - that is life-giving and life-supporting. The US George W Bush administration is life-denying in its world view, and one of its aims, i.e., establishing Eretz Israel, will therefore prove to be a failure.
7. The overarching ideological construct on which the New World Order rests, as provided by the 'Holocaust' industry is life-denying, and it will self-destruct because of its own internal contradictions.
8. To date current world events are somewhat a faint replay of the impulses that brought Adolf Hitler to power. Hitler, as the most insightful politician of the 20th century, dared focus on the factors that would bring about a general improvement in world affairs - embracing policies of autarky and a cutting loose from international debt finance. Currently there is no world leader who has dared to take this decisive step for the sake of his people, i.e. to rescue his nation from international predatory capitalism. The People's Republic of Korea, albeit a Marxist-inspired model, is attempting to do it, as is President Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe. The current Sir Bob Geldoff effort of singing for debt relief is misguided because nations can only rescue themselves by harnessing their energy from within and not by accepting debt relief of any kind. If the debt is an internal matter, then there is no need to receive - with many World Bank-IMF strings attached - any debt relief! The nation's energy remains within its social fabric, instead of being siphoned off in the form of interest payments going outside its own borders.
For what it's worth.

Advertising Christian Bigotry
As We March On Toward The New World Order
I don't know what your intention was in publicising this piece, but I'm quite sure its dominant effect will be to increase the mindless hostility toward Muslims now massively exhibited by Christians and other abysmally ignorant, deracinated
White people, as the rogue element now controlling your Country and mine prepares our people to die in wars against Islam. I have no doubt you are aware that our principal enemy is the zionist, masonic, new world order cabal now pushing us into war: Was it your intention to support these scoundrels by enhancing that mindless hostility legions of White people already exhibit toward Muslims?
It doesn't matter whether Rick Mathes is a zionist agent or just another Christian bigot, another idiot. He is playing with matches inside a tinder box. You make a serious mistake - you aid your enemy - by publicising his views without making it very clear what is wrong with them. If you want to correct your mistake, why don't you post something that expresses a decent respect for Islam and its people?

Allah or Jesus? by Rick Mathes
Last month I attended my annual training session that's required for maintaining my stateprison security clearance.
During the training session there was a presentation by three speakers representing the Roman Catholic, Protestant and Muslim faiths, who explained each of their belief systems.
I was particularly interested in what the Islamic Imam had to say. The Imam gave a great presentation of the basics of Islam, complete with a video.
After the presentations, time was provided for questions and answers.
When it was my turn, I directed my question to the Imam and asked: "Please, correct me if I'm wrong, but I understand that most Imams and clerics of Islam have declared a holy jihad [Holy war] against the infidels of the world. And, that by killing an infidel, which is a command to all Muslims, they are assured of a place in heaven. If that's the case, can you give me the definition of an infidel?"
There was no disagreement with my statements and, without hesitation, he replied, "Non-believers!"
I responded, "So, let me make sure I have this straight. All followers of Allah have been commanded to kill everyone who is not of your faith so they can go to Heaven. Is that correct?"
The expression on his face changed from one of authority and command to that of a little boy who had just gotten caught with his hand in the cookie jar. He sheepishly replied, "Yes."
I then stated, "Well, sir, I have a real problem trying to imagine Pope John Paul commanding all Catholics to kill those of your faith or Dr. Stanley ordering Protestants to do the same in order to go to Heaven!"
The Imam was speechless.
I continued, "I also have problem with being your friend when you and your brother clerics are telling your followers to kill me. Let me ask you a question. Would you rather have your Allah who tells you to kill me in order to go to Heaven or my Jesus who tells me to love you because I am going to Heaven and He wants you to be with me?"
You could have heard a pin drop as the Imam hung his head in shame.
Needless to say, the organizers and/or promoters of the 'Diversification' training seminar were not happy with Rick's way of dealing with the Islamic Imam and exposing the truth about the Muslim's beliefs.
I think everyone should be required to read this, but with the liberal justice system, liberal media, etc, there is no way this will be widely publicized.
Please pass this on to all your e-mail contacts.

Iran's president-elect wants a 'powerful and Islamic' model for the world
KATHY GANNON Sat Jun 25, 3:03 PM ET
Iran - Iran's new president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad spoke Saturday of making Iran a "powerful and Islamic" model for the world, borrowing the style of the hardline ruling clerics that backed him in his landslide victory.
But in his brief radio address to the nation, he made no mention of his views on the future for Iran's growing social freedoms - leaving liberal critics still fearing the worst.
It was an ironic twist that Iran's first non-cleric to reach the country's highest elected office since the 1979 Islamic Revolution was more religiously hardline than the cleric he defeated, former president Ayatollah Hashemi Rafsanjani.
"My mission is creating a role model of a modern, advanced, powerful and Islamic society," he said in the short message broadcast shortly after the announcement of final results sealed his stunning defeat of moderate Rafsanjani.
Announced on state television, the results gave Ahmadinejad 61.6 per cent of the vote over Rafsanjani's 35.9 per cent. The rest of the ballots were deemed invalid.
Nearly 28 million ballots were cast, or more than 59 per cent of Iran's approximately 47 million eligible voters. In last week's election, the turnout was close to 63 per cent.
The victory gives conservatives control of Iran's two highest elected offices - the presidency and parliament.
Ahmadinejad, Tehran's mayor, hasn't revealed the makeup of his cabinet, but his deputy campaign manager told The Associated Press that a 200-member team cobbled together during the presidential campaign has been pouring over names and resumes.
"The only requirement is a willingness to serve the people," said Abdulhasan Faqih, 32, a soft-spoken doctor who helped to steer Ahmadinejad's spectacularly successful campaign.
There were shortlists for some key positions, Faqih said.
"We are looking at everyone who is now in the government and any official, who changes his tendencies and begins serving the people may stay at his posts and continue to work with Ahmadinejad," Faqih said.
He named only two within the current administration who qualified: Mehdi Chamran, a deeply conservative Tehran Municipal Council chairman, who is the brother of one of Iran's cherished war heroes and has close ties to the Revolutionary Guard. The other is the 60-year-old speaker of the parliament, Ghulam Ali Haddad-Adel, described as a moderate conservative with good relations with both the hardline and the reformist movements.
Firebrand cleric Ayatollah Mesbah Yazdi was tipped as a favourite for the key Culture Ministry post, but Faqih said he won't be holding any office. "He is the grand ayatollah but he will never be in an executive office."
Who Ahmadinejad will choose to oversee Iran's nuclear policy was still unknown. Faqih said there would be no review of Iran's nuclear policy.
"Our nuclear technology is home grown and no one will stop our nuclear development," Faqih said. But he said a military application of Iran's nuclear development was not even on the table.
The United States accuses Iran of trying to develop nuclear weapons, which Iran denies.
The president-elect said he wasn't in any hurry to re-establish relations with the United States, which cut diplomatic ties with Iran after its embassy was besieged for 444 days and 52 employees were held hostage in 1979.
"The United States was free to cut its ties with Iran but the Iranian government is free to decide about restarting its relationship with the United States as well," Ahmadinejad said on his website. "This decision will be made when Iran has the guarantee that its interests will be secure in any new relationship."
Ahmadinejad's campaign headquarters, a modest two story concrete house tucked away in a narrow alleyway in the heart of Tehran's downtown, had the unassuming and humble appearance that reflected the image cultivated by the new president, qualities voters embraced in large numbers.
"God willing things will be better with Ahmadinejad," said Tala Shabani, a woman worker at a welfare organization in the city. "I'm the only one earning for my family. Ahmadinejad is a humble man. Let's see what he can do."
The world reacted nervously to the election of Iran's new unabashedly conservative president. There were complaints that the candidates allowed to run for president were decided by the powerful Guardian Council, made up of clerics, who disqualified upward of 1,000 contestants, including about 50 women.
U.S. State Department spokeswoman Joanne Moore indicated the result would not change the American view of Iran, and what it considered to be a fundamentally flawed election that barred scores of candidates, particularly women. Yet Washington has supported limited elections in Saudi Arabia where women were barred from voting.
Russia, which is working on one nuclear plant in Iran and has offered to build more, said it was ready to keep co-operating as long as international agreements were observed. In Indonesia, radical Islamists cheered news of the hardliner's victory, while the government responded more cautiously.

Iranian election more democratic than U.S. election: Australian expert
TEHRAN, June 21 (MNA) -- Dr. Fredrick Toben, the director of the Adelaide Institute in Australia, believes that the Iranian presidential election of June 17, in which 63 percent of eligible voters took part and seven candidates with diverse political inclinations contested, was much more democratic than the U.S. presidential election of 2004.
On the eve of the election, the U.S. president hypocritically said the electoral process in Iran “ignores the basic requirements of democracy.”
Following are the responses Toben gave in a brief interview with the Tehran Times on Sunday in which he expressed his views on the Iranian presidential election:
The Iranian election, in my view, was far more democratic than the election that brought U.S. President George W. Bush to power. It was also in the interest of the Iranian people. Whatever the president of the USA says about Iran, it will be to the benefit of the Zionist and racist state of Israel, and it will therefore lack any relevance for the Iranian people. The whole U.S. election process itself that brought George W. Bush the second presidency was fatally flawed through corruption.
The Iranian people are attempting to manage their own affairs from within the country, and comments from outside are designed only to effect regime change within Iran so that ‘Greater Israel -- from the Nile to the Euphrates’ -- will finally be established. The fact that the U.S. president lacks any civilized form of behavior towards the Iranian people -- branding Iran as an axis of evil -- indicates (that there is) little value in insisting he apologize to the Iranian people.
The peoples of the world who know how evil the current U.S. Bush regime is towards the Muslim world will also know that U.S. policy is determined by the neocons, who have only Zionist interests at heart which will help establish a One World Order. For that purpose it is necessary to effect regime change within Iran so that the whole Middle East becomes subjected to the neocons’ program for the Middle East.
I do hope that the Iranian people will stand firm against any external pressure that comes from the U.S. in the guise of 'sweet talk' -- freedom and democracy. Wherever the U.S. has established its brand of freedom and democracy -- for example in Germany and Japan after World War Two -- it took the form of predatory capitalism offering consumerism and military occupation. Both Germany and Japan are still occupied, 60 years after the end of World War Two!
Many millions of people are watching and hoping that Iran can stand firm in its determination to solve its own problems in its own way and time.
