Tehran, 20 Sept. (AKI) – A research centre run by the office of the president of Iran has released a 15-page document in which they define President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad as the “Socrates of the Third Millenium”.
The document has been released just days before Ahmadinejad is due to visit New York. The Iranian president will arrive in the city on Sunday to address the United Nations General Assembly.
In the document, various speeches and letters written by the Iranian president are analysed and it concludes that “Ahmadinejad reasons and discusses exactly as Socrates did in ancient Greece, by disarming other speakers and through his sharp reasoning.”
“It’s mainly the irony used by the president in his dialogue with foreigners,” said the document refering to letters Ahmadinejad had written to Pope Benedict XVI, US president George Bush and German president Angela Merkel.
Maybe this explains why no one blinked and light surrounded himwhen he last spoke to the United Nations General Assembly.
