    SouthAmerica: Brazil is a Secular country and Brazilians are secular people.

    Brazilians support Iran’s right to develop nuclear weapons – and nuclear weapons development is the business of the Iranian government, the Iranian people and nobody else.

    And Brazilians don’t care about Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad personal opinion about the Holocaust.


    Brazil criticized for visit by Iran's president
    Reuters - Tue Oct 20, 2009

    BRASILIA (Reuters) - Jewish leaders on Tuesday criticized Brazil's plans to receive Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad next month and urged the South American nation to condemn his denial of the Holocaust and "support of international terrorism."

    Brazil, which has defended dialogue and engagement with Iran, is due to get a visit from Ahmadinejad in late November.

    "For us, it is very sad to know that Brazil will receive a man who publicly says he wants to destroy our country," Israeli Chief Rabbi Yona Metzger told reporters after meeting with Brazil's Senate chief, Jose Sarney.

    Metzger, who participated in a religious seminar in the capital, Brasilia, urged Brazilian authorities to call off the visit.

    The Simon Wiesenthal Center, or SWC, a Jewish human rights organization, said Brazil should use the visit to condemn what it described as Ahmadinejad's anti-Semitic rhetoric.

    "Brazil will have the opportunity ... to condemn his dangerous calls for the destruction of Israel, his denial of the Holocaust, and his support of international terrorism," Shimon Samuels and Sergio Widder of SWC Latin America in Buenos Aires said in a letter to Brazilian Foreign Minister Celso Amorim.

    In an e-mailed statement, they said Iran harbored terrorists involved in the 1994 bombing of a Jewish community center in Buenos Aires that killed 85 people. Iran has repeatedly denied any link to the attack.

    Brazil's Foreign Ministry had no immediate comment on the Jewish leaders' remarks but reaffirmed its position of promoting engagement with Iran.

    Brazil, a rising diplomatic power campaigning to gain a permanent seat at the U.N. Security Council, has adopted a more conciliatory line toward Iran than Western allies, including the United States.

    President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva urged Western leaders last month to stop pushing Iran over its nuclear program and instead talk to it to foster peace.

    Israeli President Shimon Peres is expected to visit Brazil later this year.

    SouthAmerica: On that same weekend President Lula also said something similar to what his VP said.

    The truth is: Brazil already has about 8 or 10 nuclear warheads (they could have even more), but the Brazilian officials can't make it public, and all they can do is give a hint that Brazil has the right to develop nuclear weapons.

    The current Brazilian Constitution says that Brazil is not supposed to develop nuclear weapons.

    I am sure that the US government is aware of the Brazilian nukes.

    It is clear why numerous Nazis found sanctuary in the banana republic of Brazil based on you and your country’s comments on this topic.
  4. A Latin country secular?

    1 - From Men: An Owner's Manual: if an Italian man tells you he loves you, this is very good. It puts you in third place behind his mother and the Virgin Mary.*

    The author wasn't Catholic. This is true of all Latin men. Including Brazilians.

    2 - Scratch a northern Brazilian, and you'll get what the Spanish part of Latin America calls "espiritistas". Otherwise known as voodoo.

    3 - The Holocaust was real. Ahmadenijad is a Holocaust denier. This puts him, and the Iranian government which so obviously supports him, beyond the Pale of civilization. Everyone, including the Iranian government, understands that the minute Iran gets the bomb, they will be bombed, relentlessly and without mercy, by Israel. Everyone, including the Iranian government, also knows this will be an act of self-defense.

    The Arabs will tut tut in public when Israel bombs Iran, and cheer in private. No one likes Iran.

    *What she said about Brazilians: Brazilian men love to party and dance all night. If you're very very good, they'll tell you all about it in the morning.

    SouthAmerica: who do you think supplied the knowledge about nuclear weapons to Brazil?

  6. *****

    SouthAmerica: Nobody cares about the Holocaust anymore.

    The world have been watching what Israel did to Lebanon, and to the people in Gaza in the last few years - and that we all saw live on CNN news and on the BBC.

    And stop saying that Israel is going to bomb Iran. Today Israel don't have the balls to attack Iran.

    It is all empty threats and nothing else.

    Pakistan another Moslem country has about 100 nuclear warheads, and that neutralizes any tough talk from Israel.

    If Israel had any plans to bomb Iran they would have done by now.

    Even here in the United States Americans started realizing that all the support that the US has been giving to Israel all these years goes against US self-interest on that area of the world.

    I dare Israel to Bomb Iran.

    I don't think Israel has the guts to do it today.

    What's funny is that this guy seems to think he speaks for Brazil. He speaks collectively about what "Brazilians think".

  8. You must be the only humorless Brazilian on the planet.
    Although, the only difference between you and the rest of ET is, well, nothing actually.
    You've found a home. Enjoy it.
  9. Man, you are unfortunately messed up in your thinking.. you've been coming to ET and drooling all over yourself for years have you not?

    Yassir Arafat and Palestinians destroyed Lebanon after Lebanon took in Palestinians that were kicked out of Jordan... Israel had to man up and push them away from their border... and Gaza, wow, people attacked Israel from Gaza for months and years and Israel had to cowboy up and go in there and shut that garbage down too.. then Obama gave Hamas nearly a Billion dollars to play with and immediately Hamas bought shiploads of.. what else? Weapons !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
