Here's the letter Ahmadinejad wrote to Bush. He's not a bad writer. Bush wouldn't have the mental stamina to write a letter like that. Though he does go off on a couple of loony tangents (particularly on Israel and about 911 conspiracy theorism), a lot of the letter seems strangely sane and rational, with the basic rhetorical figure being questioning how the president's supposed christian values can be reconciled with his actions. This strikes a tolerant note which almost carries the letter. For instance, I can't help but completely agree with this bit:
(PBUH = Peace Be Upon Him)European investigators have confirmed the existence of secret prisons in Europe too. I could not correlate the abduction of a person, and him or her being kept in secret prisons, with the provisions of any judicial system. For that matter, I fail to understand how such actions correspond to the values outlined in the beginning of this letter, i.e. the teachings of Jesus Christ (PBUH), human rights and liberal values.
And now this guy named Bob Nielsen has written a letter in reply. Europe has answered! Hurrah!
