The phrase “Sarah Palin of the Islamic Republic” is Armin Azad’s. He’s sees Ahmadinejad as a publicity seeking celebrity whose star is falling. The president of Iran is often viewed as more ceremonial than substanitive. Azad believes Ahmadinejad can only get camera attention by making shocking statements like denying the holocaust or questioning the events on 9-11. Azad believes the president is slipping from power and is trying to draw attention to himself anyway he can. Azad believes that for the Western publicizing Ahmadinejad’s rantings prolongs the agony. Azad’s message in a nutshell:

“Dear Israel and America: Please don’t feed the Troll”
