As previously discussed, I yesterday recorded a discussion programme on the radio station Voice of Russia, about Israel, Iran, the USA and the Palestinians. You can now click here to hear the programme (throughout which I demonstrably had something of a frog in my throat). I do not necessarily accept the premise on which the discussion was predicated and I repeat my strong dissociation of myself from the abhorrent writings of the person calling himself "Israel Shamir", who I believe is the same Israel Shamir who was on this programme. Being a complete bitch, I note that the guest from the self-styled Stop the War Coalition, John Rees, referred to Ayatollah Seyed Ali Hosseini Khamenei as "Ayatollah Khatami", which was presumably a mistaken reference to Iran's former president (not ayatollah) Mohammad Khatami. Oh, and did I say "we" when referring to something involving the UK Government?! A Freudian slip (perhaps a Clement Freudian slip) as I am not yet the Foreign Secretary. I meant "we British" or "we people of good will and common sense". Or something.
