"We welcome the wish of the U.S. president to put away past differences," he said. "Our logic is peace, justice fraternity and mutual respect and love of mankind." Javanfekr said he was reading from a prepared statement, suggesting that his remarks were vetted by higher-ranking officials. Critical matters of state in Iran are often referred to the Supreme National Security Council, a powerful board that includes Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Iran's highest authority, as well as political and military leaders.

Just a note that the reported reply in western media is in a milder tone...



Obama abused Saadi. He

Obama abused Saadi. He forgot the misery Iranians have been through all
these years when the rulers of Iran have scared Iran to buy arms for
the sake of USSR and now for the sake of Israel.

The poem was written to understand the way we can all feel the pain, no matter what our colour, creed, or belief system is.

The military in the world have dragged the world into an economic
nightmare, people are dying of hunger, and this bozo abuses Saadi.

Saadi must be turning in his grave.
