We’ve never met but even so I feel that I know you
ever so well, because empathetically we’re on
the same plane; a situation reinforced by the
consummate respect that your sterling
character, multiple qualities and
abundant skills give rise to
and have themselves
solidified in me.
The world desperately needs more people and largely
inspirational leaders like you Sir that in terms of
intellectual acumen, leadership, commonsense,
human compassion, foresight, fortitude and
the morality to stand up undauntedly for
truth, not specious motives, and what
intuitively you know and crucially
believe to be right, ably can and
do rise above the fray to straddle
like a gargantuan Colossus the petty,
small-minded and Lilliputian political dwarfs
who with their bizarre notions of cultural
and racial superiority feel that they
have an inalienable right to
rule mankind.
This risibly to an Iranian like yourself, of all people
Sir, who knows, as do all other prescient-minded
individuals globally, that were Iran to unlikely
even do so, what it blithely chooses to forget
in terms of its millennia old civilization and
cultural heritage these quite brash, vacuous
and totally irremediable western upstarts:
not liberators just glorified murderers,
have yet to acquaint themselves
with let alone master. So as
your Presidency draws to
its close, rest assured Sir
of your legacy to
mankind; and
thank you!

From time to time, but regrettably not often enough, there appears on the international stage a truly global figure whose honesty, integrity and refreshingly constructive approach to world affairs makes one positively sit up and think; and all thankfully for the better.

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is such a person! Now as his second and equally successful term of office as President of the Islamic Republic of Iran comes to its close, I personally want to pay tribute to his tenacity and overall legacy, as well as to say to him: “God bless you Sir; I wish you all the very best for the future, and express my sincerest thanks and utmost gratitude to you for all that you’ve done.
