article imageIranian Official Uses Racial Slur to Describe President Obama

By Johnny Simpson     Jan 25, 2010 in World
Iranian official Mohammad Javad Larijani, also a UC-Berkeley graduate and member of one of the most powerful families in Iran, used the N-word to describe President Obama in a recent speech to the Islamic Engineers Society in Tehran.
From PBS Frontline and the American Thinker via Gateway Pundit comes the news that Mohammad Javad Larijani, a high-ranking Iranian politician, academic, cleric and current head of the Institute for Theoretical Physics and Mathematics in Tehran (as well as a graduate of UC-Berkeley and a member of one of the most powerful political families in Iran), used the N-word to describe President Obama in a recent speech to the Islamic Engineers Society.
Here is the pertinent excerpt from Mr. Larijani's speech criticizing the policies adopted by President Obama and referring to him using a racial epithet:
"When Barack Obama was sworn into office he talked of verbally engaging Iran," the U.C. Berkeley graduate was quoted as saying. "What has changed is that today this [the equivalent of the N-word in Farsi] talks of regime change in Iran."
In a Saturday meeting at the Islamic Engineers Society, Larijani said, "I am not a racist, but I must respond to this man [Obama] in some way."
Having graduated from the University of California at Berkeley, Mr. Larijani could have had no doubt as to what the impact of his words would be in the United States despite his qualifying statement that he is not a racist. Mr. Larijani is a brother of Ali Larjiani, the current Speaker of Iran's Parliament, the Majlis, and former nuclear negotiator for the Iranian regime. Ali recently made news by urging the regime to sever its ties with Britain. Another brother, Sadegh, is head of Iran's judiciary. The regime is facing additional sanctions over its rejection of a proposal to ship its uranium stockpiles outside the country for processing into fuel rods.
