Muhammad Ali Rajaee was the first non-clergy president of Iran after the Islamic revolution. Many politicians remember his famous act in the general annual congress of United Nations before his lecture to be started.
He put off his blouse and tucked up the trousers to show the audience and media reporters the reminders of tortures that he endured in prisons and jails of Shah’s regime.
That was calling for a new way in the 2-way connections of newly Islamic republic and United States.
After Shah’s overthrow and the destruction of Iranian 2500 years kingdom monarchy, the relations between Iran, went darker until the complete disconnection between countries has been established and all political deals of two great powers of world on that time was stopped, also US imposed very intense and great boycotts and prohibitions to Iran and damaged us very much. Iran was forced to buy old and unusual Russian Topolov planes; Iran was forced to provide its necessary agricultural products itself and Iran was forced to engage in any industrial technology without the assistance of European and American countries.
After two decades of Islamic Revolution by the leadership of Imam Khomeini, Sayyed Muhammad Khatami became the 5th president of Iran. His main standard was to reach an Islamic Utopia, so he started to accomplish social reforms… He was the first proclaimer of starting the news season of relations between Iran and US, but he did not succeed.
After Khatami, Ahmadinejad become the second non-clergy president of Iran after 1979’s revolution. His thesis was to establish peaceful and bloodless deals with US without any political struggles in diplomatic ways. So after a few months of his presidency, he wrote a long letter to George Walker Bush, the US president. Ahmadinejad talked about many subjects in his mail that was delivered by the Switzerland embassy on Iran, the US profits protector in Iran but Bush never answered that letter although he announced its reception!
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, called this as an insulting diplomatic treatment and expressed that this is not respectful and suitable for the president of a great country like America…
Now that the nuclear issue of Iran is to be more complicated than ever and Iran feels the need to America’s help for solving all the problems on its clamorous nuclear dossier especially in Security Council, it seems that US is not so interested to be reconnected with Iran like before, and it is obvious because of the repeatedly lengthened prohibitions by white house. So the serious critics of relations between Iran and US can make sure about the issue, because after the expression of America’s interest about rebuilding the former hostile relations by Bush and the official refuse of Iran that announced by media, the procedure of deals have been changed absolutely. Also the unanswered 18-pages letter of Ahmadinejad to Bush discussing some religious and moral instructions from A Muslim president to a Catholic one! Is another reason for Iran to be angrier and forget the topic at all!
