The Ayatollah’s Z(B)ig Dhimmi, Obama, and Iran

The uniquely perceptive Professor Barry Rubin has published a serendipitous column on the same day when Obama’s erstwhile “adviser”—the maroonish Antisemite Zbigniew Brzezinski—suggested that the US negotiate with the Taliban. Daniel Casse attempted to penetrate Obama’s hubris (while they briefly interacted at the Asheville, North Carolina Grove Park Inn workout room) with this plea today, “Don’t listen to Brzezinski, he’s awful,” …He’s on TV talking about making deals with the Taliban.”

 

Given the destructive legacy of Brzezinski’s distressingly stupid courtship of Khomeini’s retrograde “revolution”—in reality a restoration of the kind of Shi’ite theocracy that ruled Iran almost continuously from Shah Ismail in 1502, until  1925—let us pray that Obama (should he be elected)—heeds Casse’s warning. Barry Rubin provides Defense Secretary Robert Gates’ response on September 29, 2008 to a query about how the next president might improve relations with Iran, while giving a lecture at the National Defense University:

 

“I [Gates] have been involved in the search for the elusive Iranian moderate for 30 years.” Then Gates revealed what was actually said at Brzezinski’s meeting, in which he participated, summarizing Brzezinski’s position as follows: “We will accept your revolution….We will recognize your government. We will sell you all the weapons that we had contracted to sell the Shah….We can work together in the future.”
