Jakarta, May 11, IRNA -- Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said here Thursday that his letter to President George W. Bush did not concern the nuclear dossier, but rather was an invitation to Islam and the prophets culture.
[...]
Stressing that the letter was beyond the nuclear issue, the chief executive said that in principle, the country's nuclear case is not so significant to make him write a letter about it.

"We act according to laws and our activities are quite clear. We are rather intent on solving more fundamental global matters.

"The letter was an invitation to monotheism and justice, which are common to all divine prophets. If the call is responded positively, there will be no more problems to be solved," added the president.

The president said that the letter actually contained a clear message of invitation to human beliefs, adding that its response will determine the future....
Robert Spencer notes:
Both bolded statements suggest that the letter was indeed the call to Islam that must precede any attack, in accord with Muhammad's words (in Sahih Muslim 4294) about inviting the unbelievers to accept Islam or dhimmitude and fighting him only if he refuses both. We shall see.
UPDATE: IRNA also reports that Johnny Applemad is also telling the Europeans that they should either give up their Liberalism or Israel:
Referring to the concern expressed by western countries over his remarks about Israel, he said he was merely stating the truth, and urged countries who were threatened by his remarks to end their support for the cruel regime and see what would happen.

"Today, the occupied lands under the Zionist regime have been turned into a large prison and military camp. Liberalism has surrendered itself to the Zionist regime," he said.
[...]
If the Holocaust indeed happened, then those who committed the crime should compensate for it, the Iranian president suggested.

Referring to the expulsion of Jews from Europe as a reason behind the establishment of Israel by the Westerners, he said: "They (Westerners), particularly the British, with their anti-Jewish attitude forced groups of Jews to migrate."

Why no comments? I'm thinking that Spencer is entirely correct. They have the (black market) bomb, on (NK) launchers, right now. We are being boxed into a corner and will either submit or fight. They wish us to strike first so as to have the moral high ground, such as it is. I find odd the coincidental timing of the NSA leaks, the polls, the bashing, etc. Might there be a defining moment at hand? Yeah, I know, I'm just a paranoid crazy. But yet...

I have been following mid-east politics since the '70s, joined US Army in '79 because it appeared we were going across the water to take care of this problem. Diplomacy won the day, the nightmare has continued to spread. People in our country refuse to accept that we are at war. They especially balk when you tell them this war has been going on for 1300-odd years. Want to completely dumbfound them? Ask them what they know about the Moorish Conquest. That is always good for a laugh.

Oh, Luther? When people are out to get you it is not paranoia. It is a positive survival instinct.

i have no comment because i genuinely do not know what to believe.

Well ex-demo, I don't know what to believe either. But with the stakes confronting us, I would err on the side of caution. To me this means plain talk. And forgive me my USMCness, but, you f*** with me, I will f*** with you a lot harder.

As I see it, the end point for Aj (what's his name), who is just a puppet after all, is the destruction of Israel. Israel attacks, they nuke Israel. We attack, they nuke Israel. Neither happens, they nuke Israel.

They have the (black market) bombs, loaded on (NK launchers) and just wait for us to make an initially ineffective strike. We have been issued the da'wa, all bets are off.

We are dealing with truly disturbed individuals.

And, yes, 2hotel9, I am well aware of the nuances of paranoia.

x-ray actual here.

Well, it's impossible for us to know who Ahmadinejad most wants to hear his message - someone at home, or is he really talking to Bush? And some say he's just a puppet. But so what if he is? the puppeteer may well well have the same apocalyptic mindset - these are guys, after all, whose political base is among those initiated together in the Iraq-Iran war when Iran sent legions of children in to clear the mine fields in martyrdom marches (and Johnny Applemad was one of the suicide kids' instructors - they put keys around the kids' necks and promised they would open the doors to paradise!) So there is no question of trusting to the undisclosed sanity of those with a cult of martyrdom - Ahmadinejad is very reminiscent of Hitler in this respect as Hitler was obsessed with redeeming the horrible sacrifices of the war of his youth.

There appear to be many over there who seem to think that the return of the Mahdi is nigh and so we have to assume some, like Ah -madi -ninejad, really do want to let fly the nukes. Any pre-emptive strike will have to be massive to guarantee they can't nuke someone. Given the the current mindset of the west, I just can't see any American president having the will to do it. Nor can I imagine the Israelis nuking without definite provocation. I fear a horrible sacrifice will ensue.
