Has Obama Read the Khamenei Palestine Book?

It turns out President Obama isn’t the only world leader who writes books. His counterpart in Iran – Supreme Leader Grand Ayatollah Ali Khamenei — has also just published a new book. But while it may not be as introspective as Obama’s Dreams From My Father, it does tell us at least as much about the vision of the person in charge in Tehran (as opposed to Hassan Rouhani, the faux moderate who serves as its president) as the president’s best-selling memoir. As Amir Taheri reports in the New York Post, Palestine is a 416-page diatribe against the existence of the state of Israel and a call to arms for it to be destroyed. Supporters of the nuclear deal the president has struck with Khamenei’s regime may dismiss this book as merely one more example of the Supreme Leader’s unfortunate ideology that must be overlooked. But as the New York Times noted last week, the administration’s real goal here isn’t so much in delaying Iran’s march to a nuclear weapon (which is the most that can be claimed for the agreement) as it is fostering détente with it. Seen in that light, the latest evidence of the malevolence of the Islamist regime should be regarded as yet another inarguable reason for Congress to vote the deal down.

    Maybe he read it. Probibly he didn’t.
    The most scary part is that regardless if he read it or not, would he be acting an different?
    It’s not that he WANTS Israel to get nuked, it’s that he just does doesn’t care one way or the other.
    It’s all good in the ‘hood, man!

    • I am certain he hasn’t read it nor has Kerry or anyone in the State Dept. They all believe that Iran will act just like they do.

        That’s the part they just don’t get.
        I say to work in the State Department, you first have to have had a few non-western girlfriends.
        You learn so much about how the rest of the world thinks doing it that way, or as ai like to say: “not all other countries are Canada”.

        That’s not a slight against Canada, but a realization that most other non-English cultures have vastly different value systems than we do.

        If Obama read the book, he won’t admit it.

    NOBODY actually believes in anything that Obama does.
    Let him make his silly deals and proclamations.
    He is a Joke at home and abroad.
    Best to make him feel good about Himself.
    Tell him that the Oceans are receding and the Planet is Healing.
    Maybe that will shut him up for the next year.

      Your silly deal might just have solved our Iranian problem.

    Obama can retire now, knowing full well he has laid out the foundation for WW III.

    Unlike George H Bush, who was/is a voracious reader, I doubt Obama reads anything longer than a menu. He doesn’t even read his daily briefings. That’s why the first time he ever hears about anything is always from the TV news. Just like … regular folks … do.

      They do show him pictures on an iPad.

    He helped write it or someone in the White House has.
