Ahmadinejad's U.N. Speech

Thanks to Hugh Hewitt, we have this translation of the closing to the Iranian president's speech yesterday:
I emphatically declare that today's world more than ever before longs for just and righteous people with love for all humanity, and above all longs for the perfect, righteous human being and the real savior who has been promised to all peoples and who will establish justice, peace and brotherhood on the planet. Oh Almighty God, all men and women are your creatures and you have ordained their guidance and salvation. Bestow upon humanity that thirst for justice, the perfect human being promised to all by you, and make us among his followers among those who strive for his return and his cause.
This is an appeal for the quick arrival of the Hidden or Twelfth Imam. Not a single American newspaper reported this. Hugh asks an important question: "If George Bush had so ended his address, what would the reaction of the American press be?"

Ironically, a Christian leader might use nearly the same language to appeal to God for the return of Jesus, and an Orthodox Jewish speaker might likewise use nearly the same language to pray for the appearance of the Messiah.
