Mahmoud Ahmadinejad

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad will look to take advantage of the instability in the Arab world by changing the Middle East narrative. But will he first have to stem a popular rebellion among his own people?

George Galloway’s much anticipated interview with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad for Iranian state broadcaster Press TV has finally been broadcast. It is typical of the obsequiousness we’ve come to expect from Galloway when presented before every kind of genocidal and millenarian maniac – except, of course, the ones who don’t have much money.

As the anniversary of the Iranian revolution approaches, the opposition movement is gaining momentum 

‘Why should we be surprised that Ahmadinejad won? When has a dictatorship ever given way to change peacefully?’
