Ahmadinejad Is on His Way to Brazil. Rio Protests, Lula Defends

    Protest in Ipanema, Rio

    Protest in Ipanema, Rio About 1,000 people gathered this Sunday morning in Ipanema beach, in Rio de Janeiro, to protest against the visit to Brazil of the Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who arrives Monday for a one-day visit. The demonstration brought together groups linked to Jews, blacks, feminists, homosexuals, among others.

    Even the Gypsy Coalition and a member of the Charitable Society for Islamic Development took part in the demonstration.

    The protesters, under sunny skies and temperature of about 95 degrees Fahrenheit, denounced the lack of freedom and democracy in Iran as well as Ahmadinejad's refusal to acknowledge the Holocaust. The rally was animated by the Filhos de Gandhi band. The demonstrators walked on the beach and then released white balloons from a huge cage with messages like: "peace," "sexual freedom,"and "women's rights."

    They also handed out red cards on the beach to symbolize the Iranian president's expulsion from Brazil. And they carried banners with messages like: "The holocaust didn't exist?" And "Mr. president Lula, freedom of expression: explain to the guest."

    Brazilian president Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva defended today, once again, in Brazilian capital Brasí­lia the visit of the Iranian leader, soon after voting in the elections to choose the next Workers Party president.

    He commented that he was very happy to be the host in the last few days of Israeli president Shimon Peres and then Mahmoud Abbas, the president of the Palestinian National Authority and now to be able to receive Ahmadinejad.

    "This shows the diversity of Brazil's international relations," said Lula, "And with all of them I am going to talk about peace."

    The Brazilian leader stated that the people and "some rulers" of the Middle East want peace. "What we need to find out now is who doesn't want peace, to whom would interest not having peace in the Middle East," he added.

    "Whoever is profiting with the absence of peace needs to be put aside. With peace in the Middle East, we are going to have a much more peaceful world, we're going to stop hearing so much about war."

    He supported the idea that the whole world should participate in the UN to try to find a way out for the Middle East conflict. Lula wants to see a bigger effort by the United States and the European Union to solve the region's problems too. "They need to be more positive and more constructive," he concluded.

    Ahmadinejad has left Teheran earlier today accompanied by politicians and business men. One of the goals of the trip is to try to leave the international political isolation  in which his country is immersed right now.

    Lula says he is against new sanctions against Iran and supports a dialogue between that country an the rest of the world. The Brazilian president wants to work as a mediator between Iran and the international community.

    After meeting Lula, in Brasí­lia, Ahmadinejad, who preaches the destruction of Israel and denies that the Holocaust ever happened, goes to Bolivia, and then to Venezuela to meet Hugo Chavez, his biggest ally in the region.

    "This is a strategic visit. It is going to be limited to agreements and to open other areas of cooperation and understanding with countries that are friends, be it on the political or the economic area," explained to the press Ali Akbar Javanfaker, Ahmadinejad's adviser for the international press.

      Stop pretending to be Brazilians! You are not! Also don’t ever use an internet translator on me again!

    • Dalmo Accorsini

      I rest my case!
      You are pretending to be a Brazilian defending the visit by the dictator! I’m more then certain that you’re an Iranian operative other wise you should have answer me in Portuguese, My people (Brazilians) are freedom loving people, don’t think for a minute that just because your dictator is visiting Brazil that it changes anything, and yes you can call P.M Netanyahu whatever you want I call him BIBI. BTW: Iranian nuclear facilities will be destroyed no matter what!

    • Dalmo Accorsini

      Proof you’re Brazilian Joao!
      Vou deixar bem claro uma coisa, avisita desse Ditador sanguinario e uma ofensa ao povo Brasileiro sim! E posso te garantir joao que sim falo pela maioria que lutou contra uma ditadura e sabe o valor que temos que dar a liberdade, tanto a nossa quanto a alheia! O povo Iraniano tem o direito de ser livre, O povo de Israel tem o direito de existir e voce tem o privilegio de se calar!

    • Dalmo Accorsini

      One more thing!
      Sage and Joao da Silva are one and the same! Same lexicon, same rants, same nonsense! In dictatorships they use linguistics to try to make something really negative like “DICTATOR” to sound Benign as “Mr A” The right name for him is Mr D as in Death, as in Destruction!

    • Dalmo Accorsini

      Another thing!
      I on purpose put my website in here so you did not “discover” anything I HAVE NOTHING TO HIDE, you on the other hand has a fake name Joao da Silva my ass!!! BTW you right I’m in Miami so what???

    • Dalmo Accorsini

      Thank you Joao!
      Thank you for promoting my products. You are not Brazilian I know that for a fact the way you write and your lexicon is NOT BRAZILIAN, me in the other hand SOU 100% BRASILEIRO and proud of it! You’re Iranian I’m sure, BTW it will end soon your rein of terror!

    • Dalmo Accorsini

      I think Joao is an Iranian propaganda implant!
      Joao da Silva, a very common name in Brazil. But I bet my balls this one is a fake! He’s defense of the dictator is the same lines used by the Iranian consulate. READ MY LIPS, Brazil don’t have anything in common with Iran. We’re proudly PRO AMERICA and PRO ISRAEL. No chance of any Brazilian to go to Iran on vacation no way!!! So cut the crap and reveal yourself! If is propaganda it’s fine but don’t pretend to be a Brazilian that is offensive.

    • Dalmo Accorsini

      The biggest idiot on the blogsphere!
      Joao, what kind person are you? Idiotic I know for a fact because your comments are beyond surreal! You don’t represent Brazil, Brazilians are peace loving people, but also freedom loving people. If you don’t know why homosexuals are upset just read the news and see the many that Mr. A sent to their deaths. Wake up Joao is not to late! BTW: Jobin has no away of stopping any protest, even the stones on the streets will be heard loud and clear against the despot cruel dictator.

      Seriously,,, some of these Arab leaders are’nt on the side they appear to be. There is a new generation. And for what they may ultimately think is best BUT goes against the common mindset region, has to be implemented in a clandestine way. Why wouldn’t they “pretend” to be radical BUT really behind working for and pushing “another” GLOBALLY” common (elite) agenda???????
      In the end WHO can figure it out. Half of them get “possessed” from time to time anyway.. I am SURE of it. The Bushes have “fraternal order” blood running through and through. Somewhere down the line they are dealing with psychics and astrology. That’s knowing the finale is the only way to keep up somewhat with the game. Other than that there is NO logic.

      Not now. It might have happened during GWBÀ‚´s reign. DnB has introduced a new “Laranja” theory with regards to Ahmadinejad and if that is the case, it may not happen. Also in the sister site https://www.brazzil.com , there is another thread regarding AÀ‚´s visit and our friend Mr.Ricardo Amaral has commented something interesting which in a way makes sense about DnBÀ‚´s Laranja angle. 😉 😀

    • asp

      well, excuse me, but…..
      i dont see any overwelming reaction either way by the brazilian people….

      if you look at an average brazilian chat site, you see quite a few comments that arnt in favor of abberjabberwachy…not that that means anything

      this is just normal government doing business and politics….i really dont see any general brazilian people reaction one way or the other …there are plenty of brazilians who understand the human rights issues and plenty who understand the politic

      i think its healthy to have an open door for discusion by the lula government…closed doors just dont get anywhere…the usa middle east policy is stagnent…..

Most people like the iranian dude in Brazil, this news are totally manipulated, cause its an immigrant website, so they are affraid of the US opinion, brazilians in Brazil could never care less about the US opinion, we welcome Iran, lets make business.

      I like trying to figure out who’s “clueless”, who is the real deal . And who is fake , among these leaders. For example I’m not so sure that Mr, A is not an agent knowingly or unknowingly for the Bilderberger group. ????? The U.S is hiding ,,or letting Osama Bin Laden be hidden 😉 So I conclude that ANYTHING goes now. 911 was NOT completely Arab masterminded.
      All I know is that RELIGION is the ultimate and final enemy under the guise of the “WAR ON TERRORISM”. And how long the “plan” has been implemented up till now is anyones guess.
      The economy will continue to have tremors and ‘terrorism” will continue to spread. No one wants their money played with over some fanatics fighting.

Amigos “Shimon,Mahmoud and Ahmadi” 😉 Ahmadineja has to go somewhere to increase his popularity at home and Brasil and Venezuela are perfect places for him. He is going to be received not only by our President, but also by Mr.Sarney and Mr.Temer who represent the legislative branch.

      i was just baiting you with king & rabin, remember the kent state murders,
      the storming of jonestown/waco, tx. & many others

      the question that has to be pondered in any society is – when does political dissent/protest
      cross into becoming a law & order situation.

      i dont associate with dogmatic fundamentals of any stripe, so i cannot honestly answer your
      question honestly – ‘I can not speak for Rabbis nor Fundamentalist Christians, but, have they ever
      denied the existence of homosexuals among them?’, but judging from their mindset & discourse,
      the answer w/b interesting. & not meaning to defend mr. a. but is is a farsi speaker & stuff gets
      lost in translation.

      I don’t think that Dr. King would be analogous to this discussion. Rev. King appealed to all people who wanted basic human rights for everyone. Charlton Heston (one of those dastardly Conservatives) marched with MLK. A greater percentage of Republicans than Democrats, at the time, voted for the Civil Rights Act. Because one ignorant racist moron (James Earl Ray) murdered him….not the same.
      Rabin? Similar lone gunman wackadoo circumstances.

      I can understand an argument that we don’t know who Neda’s killer is..but…you can”t compare an ordinary citizen murdered while marching in a “rather apparent corruption” protest to the examples you have given.

      Yes, I am hard on any [i][b]unruly[/b][/i] protesters. I know the incident during Bill ClintonÀ‚´s visit and I spoke against it. When our ex-President Geisel went to London during a state visit, it was the Brasilian “exiles” who threw eggs at him and not the Brits. I do not think that when Lula goes to other countries on State visits, he is treated with protests. Lets not forget that we have nothing against Israel or Iran and both their leaders were invited by our government. There were no protests during the visit of Shimon Peres and suddenly we find Jewish Groups, Gypsies, Homosexuals, Feminists, etc; organizing themselves to protest against the visit of Ahmadineja.

      In case you missed the message of “Anonymous” in the other thread, I am reproducing it below:

      [quote]It is a duty to criticize one’s own country, I do so whenever possible. I can’t criticize Lula and Amorin for lending a listening ear to the middle east, Chavez or Castro, it is just diplomacy and commerce, the only things a modern state is entitled to.[/quote]

      I agree with him. Diplomacy and Commerce.

      I see no Brasilian boycotting the products made in PRC, because of its human rights violations, forced abortions, etc; Why not? It is called [i][b]profitable[/b][/i] bilateral trade. Obviously, profitable to some [i][b]selected few[/b][/i]. 😀

      Anyway, Ahmadinejada will be here for about a day and only the time will say if our exports to Iran will go up. I have a strong feeling that we are trying to sell our EMBRAER- 195 jets to them. Since you guys cant sell your Boeings, they have three potential suppliers-French, Russians and us. Hope we beat the French and the Russians.

      ‘Ahmadinejad, who preaches the destruction of Israel and denies that the Holocaust ever happened’

      emerson, thanks for your reporting, but a correction is in order to your above remark.

      mr. a has never preached the destruction of israel – what he stated was that israel would in due course vanish
      from the pages of time (a la the soviet union). the zionist ‘free’ press took this remark & completely distorted it
      out of context.

      mr. a does not deny the holocaust. he questions alot of the data & info used in its construct & has requested
      a healthy debate surrounding it’s facts & why it is used by the zionists to continuously engage in institutionalized
      extortion 65 years after the fact.

      he questions why the peoples of the levant should be paying such a terrible price for sins committed by europeans
      against the jews. remember, it was not only germans (the ashkanazie jews were the best assimilated in germany until
      they got involved in the country’s politics). ashkanazie jews have suffered a history of pogroms & persecution at the hands of
      polaks, russians, ukranians, lithuanians, romanians, hungarians, etc. this was never the case for sephardic jews (except

      I would like to thank Emerson Luiz for the excellent the round the clock coverage of the visit of H.E. The President of Iran to our country and hopefully our TV networks show his arrival. However, I have some comments to make:

      [quote]About 1,000 people gathered this Sunday morning in Ipanema beach, in Rio de Janeiro, to protest against the visit to Brazil of the Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who arrives Monday for a one-day visit. The demonstration brought together groups linked to Jews, blacks, feminists, homosexuals, among others.[/quote]

      I just cant understand why homosexuals,blacks and feminists are involved in this protest. Has any of these “1000 protesters” gone to Iran? It is amazing that this tiny group of whiners have plenty of other things in Brasil to protest against, but..but… they are protesting against the visit of a Head of the State of a friendly country that has always welcomed the Brasilian citizens. None of these whiners protested against the purchase of the Israeli made Drones that are going to target the favelados of Rio. For Chrissake, Iran is not trying to sell WMDs to Brasil. I am sure that Claudio Lottenburgo and Boris Ber do not live in favelas and it doesn’t matter to them if the Made in Israel drones kill and maim the poor blacks, gypsies and homosexuals who do not know where Iran or Israel is.

      I am not sure where Mr.Ahmadinejada is going to touch down, but certain that our brave Minister of Defense, Mr.Nelson Jobim has ordered our Military personnel to take energetic measures against protesters that want to embarrass the entire Brasil with their unruly behavior in front of a visiting dignitary . Such tough measures will assure the Iranian President that our security personnel are as good as his Islamic Revolutionary Guards.

      [quote]Brazilian president Luiz InÀƒ¡cio Lula da Silva defended today, once again, in Brazilian capital BrasÀƒ­lia the visit of the Iranian leader, soon after voting in the elections to choose the next Workers Party president.[/quote]

      Mr.Lula does not have to apologize to the protesters for having invited His Excellency Ahmadinejad to Brasil. 99% of the population supports this important decision taken by him.

      We hope Mr.A enjoys his brief stay in Brasilia.
