Mr Ahmadinejad apparently considers Hollywood to be a bastion of “pro-Zionist” interests, was unimpressed by Stone;s request: "While it is true that Oliver Stone is considered to be among the opposition in the US, the opposition is still part of the Great Satan," the president's media adviser, Mahdi Kalhor, told the semi-official Fars news agency. "We believe that the American cinema system is devoid of all culture and art and is only used as a device. In the last two years, the global arrogance [Iranian shorthand for the US and Britain] has made a lot of effort to portray their own image of Ahmadinejad, not the one which exists in reality. Hollywood and other Zionist media react to phenomena they don't like through different processes."
Hmm I would have thought Ahmadinejad would have jumped at the chance. It’s his loss, I suppose. Perhaps Stone will have better luck with Kim Jong Il!
