Well, like I say that is a whole other argument that cannot simply be dismissed in a few words. This is exactly what I mean though. I'm not saying I believe for sure his words were mis-translated, I admit I have not checked it out, but because there is such hatred for Ahmedinejad through world media if he tries to defend his words no-one will believe him simply because we start with a biased approach that the man sponsors terrorism. This is one of the main problems. I have outlined many other issues such as double-standards.
