LGF has an exclusive trip report from Khatami’s CAIR Dinner

LGF has a trip report from former Iranian President Khatami’s CAIR Dinner that you can read.

One interesting observation from the writer:

But one thing above all stood out when Khatami was speaking (I don’t know if it was Arabic or Persian). Apparently his language has no equivalent for the English word because he always said the word in English. Democracy.

Actually is that true? Is there a Farsi/Persian or Arabic word for Democracy? I go to think the Greeks left something to the ancient Persian language. How about a Kurdish word for democracy (it too comes from old Persian)?

Anyways, it was a good LGF post, well worth reading.

Update: “Guy” in the comments suggests an equivalent Farsi word for democracy.

  2. TerrorFree,

    I looked at your website. I understand your sentiments.

    The economics is fundamentally flawed though.

    Oil/Petrol is a world commodity. If consumers in the US buy petrol from “terror-free” sources, then others in the world buying from the oil/petrol market will consume the oil/petrol forgone by the US consumers.

    There will be no reduction in money going to terrorist supporting nations by this plan.

    Your suggestion might make some US consumers feel good, but it will not have any effect upon the world.

    I guess this is why “economics” is called the dismal science.

  3. Just a small note. The Persian lanaguage does have an equivalent word for democracy. It is “Mardom Salari”, which literally means “the rule of the people”.

  4. Thank you Guy.

    I believe there is an iranian newspaper by that name as well…but I can not find a link for it.
