Iran's Counter-Offer?

ABC News says Iran has delivered their response to the "package of Western incentives aimed at persuading Tehran to suspend uranium enrichment." Apparently, nobody knows what's in the Iranian proposal yet.

How much you wanna bet it's a "demand for Jizya," or a tax on non-muslims. Just a hunch, but we've already had the "call to Islam," so it's time for step two in Ahmadi-Nejad and the Mullah's 3 step plan for jihad.

Update: When you read stories about today's Iranian proposal (indeed, when you read any story about the current standoff), especially by the Associated Press, I want you to notice one conspicuous omission. The AP is always careful to balance the U.S.'s accusation that Iran wants to build a nuclear weapon with a "fair and balanced" disclaimer like this:

Iran says it wants to master the technology to generate nuclear power.
Or this, from Reuters:
Iran says it will not abandon what it calls its right to enrich uranium for use in nuclear power stations.
Yet, you'll never see the mainstream press include a sentence reminding its readers that Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadi-Nejad has repeatedly threatened to "wipe Israel off the map."

One might think that little bit of information would add some important perspective to the story.

I've been looking for the Mahdi all day. Do you mean to tell me that it's THIS goatstool sample? Mike Wallace has had his Walter Duranty moment. No doubt a Pulitzer is in his future.

Ahmadi-Nejad is a jizya-mopper

The offer is gonna amount to "let's talk some more while we keep developing nucs and you stupid Western assholes keep playing with yourselves."

The pussy Euros will cave and the Russians and the Chinese will make certain nobody does anything that might "incite" the Iranians (cuz you know how much those guys care about the plight of the poor Iranian people.) The US will continue to be impotent in these talks - embracing the motto "speak softly and carry a really, really little stick."

CASCA, I found the Mahdi, the 12th Imam, He is running a Stop and Rob near my house and he listens to Hip hop, reads his Koran, and wears a Snakes on a Plane T-Shirt.
His name is Azquief Bin Hussien and he told me the fist Mutha-farker he is going to have beheaded is that ass clown Ahmadenejad for blowing his cover.

When I convert to Islam, I'll be sure to change my name to Assqueef too.

Being polite, I could say that the president Ahmadi-Nejad is a bit funny. His unrealistic nuclear ambitions could bring his people to a disastrous situation.
