I largely agree with everything in this article, except for the part about Iran's internal affairs. I think Ahmadinejad would simply argue that the American interference in his country's affairs is responsible for many of the problems with his country that the West cites. I don't know enough about Iranian politics to say whether the West is fully responsible or not (I do know that America and Israel promoted fundamentalist Islam at the time socialism and leftist politics were making a lot of inroads in Muslim countries). I am one to argue that imperialism is alive and well today, and that the U.S. and the Western powers do hold responsibility for many of the problems in poorer coutries; however, once again I don't know the particular situation in Iran so I can't really break this down and explain it, though Ahmadinejad would no doubt ably do so.
