Iran: Ahmadinejad & Israel

Categories: Middle East & North Africa, Iran

Hoder, a Toronto based blogger, [1] says Ahmadinejad [2] and some other conservative personalities like Keyhan [3] (persian) newspaper's editor are following an anti Isareli line for following reasons: 1- Ahmadinejad is trying to distract his base from the promises he'd given about improving people's living standard and distributing the oil revenue equally among the populous. 2-Ahmadinjead is a populist and his advisers have shown him how to manipulate unsophisticated public opinion in Arab countries when it comes to Israel. 3-Ousting moderate diplomats.
