"Amil Imani reveals a wickedly cutting satirist's eye as he sketches out an acidly funny meeting between Barack Obama -- imagined as a sharp-tongued but supine secret Sunni Muslim -- and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who is determined to remove the Great Satan as an obstacle in the way of the advance of Shi'ite Muslim world domination. As they spar verbally. Ahmadinejad runs circles around the hapless Obama, and in the course of the conversations reveals a great deal about Islamic supremacism, Iran, the Sunni/Shi'ite divide, and more. It's a dystopian fantasy, but with Obama appearing determined to appease the Islamic world at all costs, it's strikingly illuminating of the present-day predicament of America and the West."
--Robert Spencer, author of the New York Times bestsellers The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (and the Crusades) and The Truth About Muhammad
In Obama Meets Ahmadinejad, ‘democracy is so flawed that it can be imploded from within." The president of Iran wants to make sure that the march of Islam won't be stopped. He browbeats and bullies the naive and arrogant U.S. president in a series of secret meetings that Amil Imani vividly imagines -- or transcribes -- in this funny, insightful and illuminating book. Satire or accurate reportage? In today's moral inverted world, what's the difference?” -- Pamela Geller, editor and publisher of AtlasShrugs.com and author of The Post-American Presidency: The Obama Administration's War On America (Simon & Schuster) “Charlie Chaplin was aware of the great power of ridicule. A strong opponent of racism, in 1937 Chaplin decided to make a film on the dangers of fascism. The politically correct folk in the media and the Hollywood tried to stop the film being made and Chaplin was threatened with censorship. ‘But I was determined to go ahead, for Hitler must be laughed at,’ wrote Chaplin in his Autobiography. “In this parody, Amil Imani ridicules two dangerous zanies of our time, who also must be laughed at, who both, have deceitfully usurped their presidency, and together are bringing the world to the brink of Armageddon. “Imani is a powerful writer. Have your dictionary handy and enjoy this exquisite literature.” Dr. Ali Sina is the author of Understanding Muhammad and the founder of faithfreedom.org “Although a great work of fiction which at times resembles reality, it is a fantastic, powerful and hilarious creative writing by Amil Imani. I’ll be recommending it to all my colleagues.” -- Wafa Sultan, author of the A GOD WHO HATES: The Courageous Woman who Inflamed the Muslim World Speaks Out Against the Evil of Islam.
The president of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, recently challenged the American president, Barack Obama, to a televised debate, "to see who has the best solutions for the world's problems." Many Iranians themselves would likely view the diminutive man's blustering as completely laughable, since civil rights activists have been complaining for decades now that the Iranian government is an oppressively tyrannical regime that has tortured and slaughtered thousands. The lack of human rights all around and the status of women in that nation are deplorable, including institutionalized sex slavery justified in the name of Islam. Iranian/Persian freedom fighters claim that they are under Islamic rule against their will, and millions, it is said, want to leave the religion but are afraid of the death penalty for apostasy. According to an article in Reuters entitled, - the Iranian leader also claimed: "We are ready to hold talks at the highest level... We have always favored talks, Iranians have never, ever favored war." Leaving aside the facts that Iran was essentially invaded by radical Islamists 31 years ago and that the harsh Islamic regime has been at war with its "citizens" since then, this call for a debate is eerily reminiscent of the new book by Persian-American writer Amil Imani, Obama meets Ahmadinejad. An important potential outcome Pertinent and timely, Obama meets Ahmadinejad is a fictional dialogue between the two world leaders, taking place at the Iranian "fascist's" palace in Tehran. The momentous, history-making meeting unfolds as an astonishing conversation that might not be far from the truth in what would occur if Obama actually took up Ahmadinejad on his invitation. In Obama meets Ahmadinejad, we find the two politicians indulging in raucous and vulgar male grunting, as well as in mind-altering substances, of which the Iranian is said to be fond, while we are reminded that the "fraud" was also a partier in his youth. As Amil writes in an article entitled, "Mullahs and opiates": "Lest you think these men should at least be admired for their self discipline and abstention from personal sins, know that the majority of mullahs are heavy opium smokers. In that land, opium smoking is still very popular with people who can afford the fruit of the Poppy. It is the Muslim’s alcohol. Although its use is prohibited by law, with stiff penalties on the books, the use of opium continues and has become more endemic than ever under the mullahs’ rule. This is in part because many of the mullahs as well as the law-enforcement officials are users and many officials make a personal fortune by getting their cuts from the traffickers. Opium is the drug of choice in the countryside, and heroin is primarily used by the more affluent city dwellers. Moreover, this is the drug that is used to calm the restless people." But the most important part of this satire comes in the form of political commentary on each man's policies and peccadilloes, as they discuss: * Voter fraud * Killing of opposition * The Shah, Jimmy Carter, Ayatollah Khomeini and the CIA * Drug use * Religious affiliations and megalomaniacal delusions * Islam, infidels and apostates * The Quran and sharia law * Iranian oppression of minority religions * Afghanistan and Osama bin Laden * Homosexuals and women in Iran * Hangings and stonings * Oil and nuclear policies * Israel, Zionists, Jews and anti-Semitism * 9/11 conspiracy theories * The American economy and the Gulf oil spill * Basij and Revolutionary Guard crimes against humanity * The "Birther" movement and Kenya connection * "Crypto-Muslim" and "Manchurian Candidate" contentions * Shiite v. Sunni sects * Anti-Americanism, the "Great Satan" and Islamic supremacism * The Twelfth Imam * Iraq and Saddam Hussein * Iran's role in terrorism * China, Russia, Pakistan, et al. * Islamization of Europe * And many more shocking revelations... These contentious comments are "ripped from the headlines" and other sources, frequently comprising scandals that each man throws up in the other's face. Obama meets Ahmadinejad is a profound read for anyone interested in global politics, as it pulls no punches and cuts to the chase. The book includes a dedication to murdered Green Revolution "martyrs" Neda Agha Sultan and Sohrab. It also provides a Glossary of Arab and Farsi terms that give it the realism one would expect from a writer of Amil's background and caliber. Always the patriot, Imani is neither extreme right nor left, presenting this "play" from a relatively dispassionate but highly astute perspective. In light of Ahmadinejad's continuing overtures towards American politicians in asking for meetings and debates, it may be wise to investigate what very well might transpire if Obama agreed to Ahmadinejad's invitation. This book will give you insight that runs the gamut from the ridiculous to the sublime. The tale is so intelligently and realistically woven that the reader just might forget it's a satire, a parody, a work of fiction. And the astounding ending will be sure to stun you - frankly, the way things are going, it seems likely to come true. Yet, if we neglect this frightening possible outcome, future historians (if there are any) will surely ask: How could the entire world have seen it coming and done nothing about it? D.M.
