[QUOTE][B]Excerpts: Iran president's letter [/B]
Mr Ahmadinejad says US policies are fuelling terrorism Key excerpts from an open letter to the US people from Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, in which he appeals to them to reject their administration's use of "force and injustice".
We, like you, are aggrieved by the ever-worsening pain and misery of the Palestinian people.
Persistent aggressions by the Zionists are making life more and more difficult for the rightful owners of the land of Palestine...
You know well that the US administration has persistently provided blind and blanket support to the Zionist regime, has emboldened it to continue its crimes, and has prevented the UN Security Council from condemning it...
No people wants to side with or support any oppressors. But regrettably, the US administration disregards even its own public opinion and remains in the forefront of supporting the trampling of the rights of the Palestinian people...
Let's take a look at Iraq. Since the commencement of the US military presence in Iraq, hundreds of thousands of Iraqis have been killed, maimed or displaced. Terrorism in Iraq has grown exponentially.
In Iraq, about 150,000 American soldiers, separated from their families and loved ones, are operating under the command of the current US administration.
A substantial number of them have been killed or wounded and their presence in Iraq has tarnished the image of the American people and government...
Noble Americans, you have heard that the US administration is kidnapping its presumed opponents from across the globe and arbitrarily holding them without trial or any international supervision in horrendous prisons that it has established in various parts of the world.
God knows who these detainees actually are, and what terrible fate awaits them...
You have certainly heard the sad stories of the Guantanamo and Abu Ghraib prisons. The US administration attempts to justify them through its proclaimed "war on terror." But every one knows that such behaviour, in fact, offends global public opinion, exacerbates resentment and thereby spreads terrorism, and tarnishes the US image and its credibility among nations...
The US administration's illegal and immoral behaviour is not even confined to outside its borders. You are witnessing daily that under the pretext of "the war on terror," civil liberties in the United States are being increasingly curtailed.
Even the privacy of individuals is fast losing its meaning. Judicial due process and fundamental rights are trampled upon. Private phones are tapped, suspects are arbitrarily arrested, sometimes beaten in the streets, or even shot to death...
We all condemn terrorism, because its victims are the innocent. But, can terrorism be contained and eradicated through war, destruction and the killing of hundreds of thousands of innocents? If that were possible, then why has the problem not been resolved?...
I recommend that, in a demonstration of respect for the American people and for humanity, the right of Palestinians to live in their own homeland should be recognized so that millions of Palestinian refugees can return to their homes and the future of all of Palestine and its form of government be determined in a referendum. This will benefit everyone...
Now that Iraq has a constitution and an independent assembly and government, would it not be more beneficial to bring the US officers and soldiers home, and to spend the astronomical US military expenditures in Iraq for the welfare and prosperity of the American people?...
I'd also like to say a word to the winners of the recent elections in the US [...] Now that you control an important branch of the US government, you will also be held to account by the people and by history....
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's said the US people sought justice and truth
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has made an unprecedented and direct appeal to the US people, urging them to reject US foreign policy.
In a letter to "Noble Americans" Iran's president said the US administration's use of "coercion, force and injustice" weakened its global position.
Mr Ahmadinejad said terrorism had "grown exponentially" in the "military misadventure" of Iraq.
He also accused the US administration of ignoring public opinion.
Can terrorism be contained and eradicated through war, destruction and the killing of hundreds of thousands of innocents? If that were possible, then why has the problem not been resolved?
Excerpts from letter
Mr Ahmadinejad said he hoped that US President George W Bush would recognise the anger over the war in Iraq expressed in the mid-term election losses.
"I hope that in the wake of the mid-term elections, the administration of President Bush will have heard and will heed the message of the American people," Mr Ahmadinejad said in the open letter.
He described Iraq as a "military misadventure" costing the lives of Iraqi civilians and American soldiers alike.
The Iranian leader, who wrote an 18-page letter to the US president in May to which Mr Bush never replied, said he sought to start a dialogue with the American people.
That letter was the first official communication between the two countries' presidents since Iran's 1979 Islamic Revolution.
'Truth and justice'
In his latest letter, Mr Ahmadinejad took a conciliatory tone as he sought to bypass the US government and speak directly to its citizens.
He wrote that the people of both states "were God-fearing, truth-loving and justice-seeking".
Mr Ahmadinejad's letter, which makes no mention of Iran's nuclear programme, comes during a period of especially tense relations between the two countries.
Iran has refused to suspend its nuclear enrichment programme and the US is leading efforts to impose UN sanctions on the country.
The Iranian leader's discursive, five-page letter also urged Washington to recognise a Palestinian state, saying it was ignoring public opinion in "trampling the rights of the Palestinian people".
Mr Ahmadinejad, who has called for Israel to be wiped off the map, urged the US people to support the right of the Palestinians to live in their own homeland.
The Iranian president also warned the Democratic Party that, after gaining control of Congress, they would be "held to account by the people and by history."
Only a shift in policy could mend damaged relations and with other states and a bruised global image, he said.
"If the US government meets the current domestic and external challenges with an approach based on truth and justice, it can remedy some of the past afflictions and alleviate some of the global resentment and hatred of America," he said.
