Obama to Iran regime: 'We recognize your nuclear rights' - 'I didn't want to impose sanctions on your central bank'

During a meeting with senior Iranian officials several days ago, the Swiss ambassador to Iran, Livia Leu Agosti, delivered a letter from President Obama and quoted the latter as saying that the U.S. recognizes Iran's nuclear rights.

Hossein Ebrahimi,the deputy head of Iran's parliamentary committee on national security and foreign policy, said Saturday that, "The Swiss ambassador to Tehran quoted the US president as saying 'we recognize your nuclear rights'."

Mr. Ebrahimi also said Saturday that the Swiss ambassador had relayed a message from Obama saying: "I didn't want to impose sanctions on your central bank but I had no options but to approve it since a Congress majority had approved the decision."

Iranian officials said Wednesday that President Obama had called for direct talks with the Iranian regime, in a letter to Iran's Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. The White House refused to comment specifically on the letter, but denied the President had made such an offer.

But Iranian lawmakers insisted that Obama, in his letter, had "mentioned cooperation and negotiation" with Iran and declared "[the US] will not take any hostile action against the Islamic Republic of Iran."

Mr. Ebrahimi also said Wednesday that, "This is not the first time that Obama has sent a message and letter to the Islamic Republic of Iran, and also noted that Obama "has repeatedly spoken in a soft tone about the Islamic Republic of Iran."

“Obama’s letter indicates that the United States has become afraid of the Islamic Republic of Iran’s might..., and therefore, he has softened his tone when speaking about the Islamic Republic of Iran," Ebrahimi said.

“The important issue," added Ebrahimi, "is that without the Islamic Republic of Iran’s permission, no country can benefit from the Persian Gulf.”

According to Iran's Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast, President Obama sent a message to Iran via three different channels, including US Ambassador to the UN Susan Rice, Swiss Ambassador to Iran Livia Leu Agosti, and Iraqi President Jalal Talabani.

Of course, this is not the first time that Obama has sent messages and letters to the Iranian regime.

In June of 2009, the Washington Times revealed that, prior to the disputed Presidential election in Iran, Obama had "sent a letter to Iran's supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali khamenei, calling for an improvement in relations." However, an Iranian lawmaker said Saturday that the latest missive from Obama is actually the third letter he has sent to Iran's supreme leader declaring his readiness to both commence talks and improve relations with the blood-thirsty, monstrous and hideous regime.

On Wednesday, I chronicled, at length, the President's obsessive outreach to the Iranian & Syrian regimes, Muslim Brotherhood, Hezbollah, Hamas etc.

Ironically, while Obama continues to express a spirit of bipartisanship, and friendship, toward the Iranian regime and other similar hideous foreign elements, he seems unable to express the same kind of sentiment towards Republican lawmakers in the U.S. congress.
