The Israeli Vs Iranian battle was to its meanest this past two days at the UN General Debate. The Presidents of the two countries were really and seriously undiplomatic to each other.  

Israeli President, Shimon Peres, told Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad what he thinks of him saying:

” He is a disgrace to the ancient Iranian people and tradition. He is a disgrace to the values of Islam and all religons. He is a disgrace to this house , the United Nations, its basic principles and values. His apperance here is already a shame.

 

                         

President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad got a little ‘ less’ personal on monday and said:

“In palestine 60 years of carenage and invasion is still ongoing at the hands of some criminal and occupying Zionists. They have forged a regime through collecting peopel from various parts of the world and bringing them to other people’s land and by displacing , deatining and killing the true owners of the land …..Today , the Zionist regime is on a definte slope of collapse, and there is no way for it to get out of the cesspool created by itself and its supporters…”

Okey …two book suggestions for your list. First one , I am reading now in the middle of tonnes of other things to read and write. I am reading none other than the fascinating life of Che.  The book is entitled Che Guevara: A Revolutionary Life  and written by Jon Lee Anderson.

Second one is a more interesting one, Mein Kampf, written by yours truly ,Hitler, but the Ralph Manheim version. This one, I wasn’t able to finish . I read a quarter of it ,though . I couldn’t afford to buy both so I chose Che’s . Very sane of me or so I thought. 

Check them out the next time you are up for some page flipping.
