Oh noes! Lula says nice things about Iran, too!

And what things they are…

Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva plunged into Middle East conflicts today, saying Iran has a “decisive role to play” in the region after a three-hour meeting with its president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

With Ahmadinejad seated beside him in the Foreign Affairs Ministry in Brasilia, Lula said Iran can help heal divisions among Palestinians, as he expressed support for a “viable and dignified Palestinian state” to be established alongside a “secure and sovereign Israel.” Ahmadinejad has called for the destruction of Israel and questioned the Holocaust.

“I work for the building of peace in the world,” Lula said. “I defend peace in the Middle East. I defend the Palestinian state and that all may live in harmony.”


“It won’t work to leave Iran isolated,” Lula said. “If Iran is an important actor in this strife, it’s important for someone to sit with Iran, to talk with Iran.”

Lula reiterated that the UN should lead peace negotiations in the Middle East after saying last week that the U.S. is responsible for the crisis.

In his radio address, Lula said he’ll seek to stage a soccer game between Brazil’s national team and a joint Israel- Palestine team to help further the peace process.

“I’ve had a dream for the past three years, to organize a peace game in a neutral stadium, of a mixed team,” Lula said. “This would be an extraordinary achievement for Brazil and, above all, a very important sign for peace.”

Auntie ‘Bina is hereby bracing herself for the shitstorm of “Lula bad, Lula terrorist, Lula islamofascist” which is sure to come any minute now…




Well? It’s been three days. Is no one going to slag Lula for pulling a Chavecito?

    Aaaaaagh! No he didn’t.
    But you know that. Nice post over at BoRev about Shimon Peres calling for the destruction of Venezuela. Teehee.

  2. The president of Argentina also spanked him for that. She said that no one tells her who she may and may not associate with. Looked good on him!
