American Iranian Council
Obama’s Administration and US- Iran Relations and Nowruz Celebration on Capitol Hill
by Dr. Wilson
Having been fortunate to be able to attend the above event, I felt it would interest many to hear what this group of enlightened speakers, both Iranian and American, had to say. So I present the following summary: >>
The Turkish prime minister, Mr. Erdogan, stormed out of a heated debate at the World Economic Forum in Davos after slamming the position of Israeli President, Mr. Shimon Peres, over Israel's offensive in the Gaza Strip.
Recep Tayyip Erdogan walked out of the televised debate on Thursday, after the moderator refused to allow him to rebut the Israeli president's justification about the war that left about 1,300 Gazans dead.
Before storming out, Erdogan told Shimon Peres, the Israeli president: "You are killing people."
Peres told Erdogan during the heated panel discussion that he would have acted in the same manner if rockets had been falling on Istanbul.
Moderator David Ignatius, a Washington Post columnist, then told Erdogan that he had "only a minute" to respond to a lengthy monologe by Pires.
Erdogan said: "I find it very sad that people applaud what you said. There have been many people killed. And I think that it is very wrong and it is not humanitarian."
Ignatius twice attempted to finish the debate, saying, "We really do need to get people to dinner."
Erdogan then said: "Thank you very much. Thank you very much. Thank you very much. I don't think I will come back to Davos after this."

The Persian Gulf War, also known as the Gulf War is also known as the mother of all battles (Um Al Mā'arik) Ar: ام المعارك in Iraq:
The Persian Gulf War international conflict was triggered by Iraq’s invasion of Kuwait on August 2, 1990.
The Gulf war started when Iraq’s leader, Saddam Hussein, ordered the invasion of Kuwait with the goal of acquiring its large oil reserves, canceling a large debt Iraq owed to Kuwait. It also wanted to expand Iraqi power in the middle east.
