Ahmadinejad, a dreadful video

In his Facebook page French philosopher and writer Bernard-Henri Lévy has a video, which was clandestinely shot and brought out of Iran, showing “president-non-elect” Mahmoud Ahmadinejad—as Lévy himself calls the Iranian despot—while announcing to his most loyal followers and in the presence of his mentor and spiritual adviser, ayatollah Mesbah-Yazdi, “un grand bouleversement sur la planète” (a great bouleversement on the planet). The speech was delivered on June 13, 2009. This is what BHL himself says about the video (in French):

Ce document vidéo est tout à fait extraordinaire. Filmé à l’insu de ses acteurs, sorti clandestinement d’Iran, il représente Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, à Qom, en compagnie de son mentor, l’Ayatollah Mesbah Yazdi, ainsi que d’un cénacle d’élèves et de fidèles. La vidéo est sortie d’Iran via internet. Elle daterait du 13 juin 2009 soit le lendemain de la victoire supposée de Mahmoud Ahmadinéjad (datation que tendraient à corroborer tant les remerciements réitérés que le programme annoncé « d’islamisation radicale » ). On ignore qui a capturé ces images, puis a choisi de les diffuser, mais il s’agit, à l’évidence, de personnes issues de ce cénacle même (peut-être un téléphone portable ?). C’est une réunion privée, et en petit comité, dont le contenu ne s’adressait visiblement pas à la foule, mais à des initiés auxquels on s’adresse, parfois, en langage codé. On va y voir le « Président non élu » remercier son mentor et ses invités pour leur soutien et les services rendus (lesquels ?). Il leur assure, que grâce à leur aide, la « grande victoire » (laquelle ?) est proche. Le tout sur un ton et dans une terminologie dont la teneur messianique est particulièrement accusée. Voyez.

  1. Yes, it's dreadful. Today's post is about Iran, so I am linking it.

    Un post molto importante!

  2. This is incredible, yet it follows a diabolical logic which I alluded to with my 'approximative Italian' in a recent comment.

    'Se Ahmadinejad avesse vinto così facilmente, e secondo lui, 'rispettando scrupolosamente tutti i regoli del processo', perché avrebbe privato il popolo dell'opzione propria della democrazia, di votare una seconda volta? Perché se le autorità inclusa la 'guida suprema' preferissero la repressione, gli assassini, la scissione totale della nazione, in luogo di praticare semplicemente quest'opzione democratica, si immagina che ci sia qualcosa ancora più diabolico che sta sviluppando in Iran.'

    Bernard-Henri Lévy must be perfectly aware of the 'bouleversement devin' that Ahmadinejad refers to.
    This of course explains not only why he was 're-elected' but also why the protesters have been so brutally repressed. This is a program, and in principle the rigime are not going to allow anyone or any country to prevent them from carrying it out. God help us..

  3. (One could surmise that the person who filmed the scene recording the whole speech was aware of the 'machiavellic plot' or whatever seems to be at stake, and made a highly dangerous personal commitment to insure that the world is made aware of it. He or she couldn't possibly have filmed this secretly).

  4. These seem to be the key phrases:

    'Une période difficile vient d'achever mais une période plus dure commence...
    Les vrais voeux se réalisent, à porter de main aujourd'hui...


    Il me semble qu'en ce moment les conditions sont favourables. Un immense mouvement... Ce sont les prémices d'un grand bouleversement sur la planète...

    Nous avons peu de temps...

    Je remercie les Talibans ici présents, ces chers qui n'agissent que pour dieu et qui mènent ce mouvement immense. Je sais à quel point ils ont payé de leur personne à Qom et ailleurs, je sais qu'ils ont empruté de l'argent, qu'ils ont mis leur vie à ce service. D'autres ont supporté d'autres difficultés.
    Je vous remercie même si celui qui vous remercie plus que tout est Dieu...'



    If he was referring only to 'fundamentalising' Iran, he would have had less 'need' to talk in riddles. 'The real wish that is within reach' is what? 'Conditions' are 'favourable' to what? An 'immense movement' for what? 'These are the beginnings of a great upheaval on the planet'. What upheaval, why and where?
    'We haven't much time'. Why and for what purpose?

    'I thank the Talibans who are here. These dear ones who only act for God and who
    lead the immense movement. I know how much they have paid in person at Qom and elsewhere, I know they have lent money, that they have dedicated their lives to this service. Others have supported other difficulties. I thank you even though he who should thank you more is God.'

    We know the Iranian regime has tried through Hezbollah (as well as Hamas) to destabilise, if not worse, Israel. Logic would guide us to suspect that the Iranian regime considers it's ready to go further to 'realise its wish', whilst time allows..

  5. Why is there no general reference to this video in the media? Tacit agreement? It can't be ignorance.
