Louis is right, that Ahmadinejad's claim re Zionist bankers etc. is more akin to Coughlin et al.
Jon has hit the main point. If you take out the offending paragraph, what he wrote could have been ghostwritten by Chomsky/Zinn/any one of a hundred Counterpunch or Zmag authors trying to find a way for an "enemy" of the US to make an effective appeal to people in the US. He hits all the right buttons: Katrina, Guantanamo, the waste of US soldiers' lives, injustice against Palestinians, domestic spying, etc.
In fact perhaps a joint letter by the Chomsky/Zinn/et al. crowd would be worthwhile. Pointing out the real ethnic makeup of the ruling class, yesterday and today, to start with (and not forgetting to mention the Iranian bourgeoisie-in-exile in California that is trying to overthrow Ahmedinijad himself).
Not that it would change Ahmadinejad's mind, but it could have an impact on millions in the colonial world.
