Here's a lovely photo of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad:
I intend to use this image on MRZine for his birthday: 28 October 1956.
I shall also send him flowers on his birthday . . . if he is still alive. (Tulips -- Iran's national flower and symbol of martyrdom and revolution -- if possible, though they are out of season in October.) Will he be? Washington will certainly try to oust him or have him killed, and he has numerous local enemies. Fidel and Chavez need to give him survival tips, too, in addition to tips on how best to offer solidarity with Palestinians, how to organize counter-hegemonic diaspora identity politics, and other subjects of importance.
