Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who is in the U.S. for the United Nations General Assembly this week, met with Nation of Islam Minister Louis Farrakhan and other religious "leaders" on Tuesday, according to a photo posted on an English translation of Ahmadinejad's website.
In the photo below, Farrakhan can be seen sitting and smiling in front of an Iranian flag, just one seat away from Ahmadinejad (Second from the left).
Farrakhan is one of the most controversial religious figures in all of America. He is openly anti-Semitic and anti-American and harbors extremist views. He has claimed that Jesus was black, accused Barack Obama of being a "murderer" after Libyan dictator Muammar Gadaffi was killed and called Jews "bloodsuckers" -- just to name a few.
Ahmadinejad's website says the Iranian president "made the remarks in a meeting with leaders of Abrahamic religions and peace activists" who share his same views on a new and just world order.
More from the Iranian president's website:
Stressing that the issue of Iran’s peaceful nuclear activities is politically-motivated, he said the US is focusing on such issues just to dominate the Middle East energy resources and is angry with Iran because Tehran does not let it achieve its objective.
He further pointed to the Western countries contradictory approach regarding their opposition to the atomic bombs and said if they are true with their claims why they do not destroy their own nuclear bombs first.
President Ahmadinejad commented on the Zionist regime's threats against the Iranian nation and said such moves show its weak position.
Saying that the Zionist regime is suffering from mental disequilibrium, he noted that the regime has launched five wars in the region since its formation, killing thousands of people the last of who were the assassinated Iranian nuclear scientists.
Ahmadinejad also said that many in the world, including Americans "hate" the "Zionist regime," meaning Israel. The comments make sense after reports that Ahmadinejad wanted to meet with Occupy Wall Street.
Keep in mind, the report comes directly from Ahmadinejad's website, which the Iranian government controls. It would be interesting to hear exactly what was said during this meeting.
Additionally, the Iranian president "shared a hush-hush meal with Farrakhan and members of the New Black Panther Party Tuesday at the Warwick Hotel on West 54th Street," according to the New York Post.
