Andrea Mitchell's NBC Interview With Iranian President Includes Discussion of Zionism

In a nutshell, Zionism is the widely accepted belief that Israel belongs to the Jews because they are the chosen people; the belief has displaced millions who lived there first.

(SALEM, Ore.) - NBC Reporter Andrea Mitchell's interview with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad broke new ground with the American public, by actually allowing the idea of Zionist control to air on an American news network. I'm not saying its has never been mentioned, but this is a real breakthrough.

The interview initially centered around the release of Sarah Shourd, an American hiker, one of three held in an Iranian jail since 31 July 2009, when they were arrested for espionage as they crossed from war torn Iraq into Iran.

Shane Bauer, 27, and Jeff Fattal, 28, remain in Iranian custody and will face the country's judicial system. Shourd was released for health reasons.

Ahmadinejad stresses in the interview below that Iranians do not dislike Americans and he believes that in fact, Americans also really don't hate Iranians, but they are often guided by hardcore religious fanatics in the U.S. just like we see see in the Mideast, and Israel.

What is Zionism?

Fortunately we have a team of writers who have specifically addressed this and anyone can gain a great deal of knowledge by reading the articles in our special series: "ZIONISM UNMASKED"

Here are the articles in the series:

In a nutshell, Zionism is the widely accepted belief that Israel belongs to the Jewish people because they are the chosen people. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to see how this type of belief might go to one's head, and it did. After the tragedy of the Holocaust, Jewish people began moving to Palestine in increasing numbers. Twenty years after Israel was formed, the Six Day War was won by Israel and almost all of what remained of Palestine was seized. Palestinian people live by the million in refugee camps because their land was physically taken away by Israel and it continues every day.

The problem is not religion, it is religious extremism, just as it is in the case of radical fundamentalist Muslim sects like the Wahabists and Taliban.

The reason Zionism is not frequently talked about and debated in the United States, is because anyone who does is instantly branded an 'anti-semite' but we have thick skin at Salem-News.con and we have brother and sister Jewish writers on our team, so those people haven't a leg to stand on and are in fact racist themselves for even suggesting such stupid things.

Here are the articles in the series on ANTI-SEMITISM:

As you will see in this video, Andrea Mitchell interrupts the Iranian President and is gently asked to allow him to finish speaking when he is in the middle of a sentence. This NBC reporter caught herself, she regained her composure and dropped the accusatory tone.

It is not an opinion to state that Israel is hostile and aggressive toward Iran. It is also a fact that Israel attacked the United States Liberty during the Six Day War killing dozens of Americans and wounding scores.

Ahmadinejad cares about the way the Palestinian people were displaced and he pays a price for that because it points a finger at Israel's human cruelty and the displacement of millions of people.

The very worst part is that it continues today, constantly; that is Israel's destruction and illegal theft of Palestinian homes and the building of 'settlements' on top of the land that Palestinian people have lived on for generations. Activists in the ground call Israel's tactics state sponsored terrorism. Homelessness is driven by Israel's laws which regulate and punish Arab and Christian people under different guidelines than Jewish people. These are the criticisms in general of Israeli policy that seem unacceptable by general human standards.

Zionism is practiced in churches all over the United States and the western world.

Well, this Iranian knows more about U.S. politics than the average tax paying goyim. Throw AIPAC and the Federal Reserve out of the U.S.A.

This Iranian knows more about U.S. politics than most tax paying flag waiving goyim. The Zionists "bank" on that.

“In a nutshell, there is a deep schizophrenia in the Holy Land; what we see, hear and talk. "Zionism is the original sin; Zionism is an untouchable icon. "You can curse Mohammad, you can curse Mary, but not Zionism.”- Professor Albert Aghazarian, July 19, 2007, occupied east Jerusalem.
