Rouhani home with US “gift”
of silver griffin: reports

Agence France-Presse, by Staff

Posted By:BuckeyeRon, 9/28/2013 8:34:13 PM

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani on Saturday brought home a 2,700-year-old Persian artifact the US administration gave him as “a special gift" to Iranians, media reports said. “The Americans contacted us on Thursday and said ´we have a gift for you´,” Rouhani told reporters upon arrival at the airport in Tehran, the ILNA news agency reported. “They gave it back as a special gift to the Iranian nation.” Rouhani was speaking of a 7th century BC silver Persian drinking cup in the shape of a winged Griffin, a legendary creature with the head of an eagle and body of a lion.

Read the article. Obie returned stolen property. An artifact "looted from a cave" in Iran, and confiscated when an art dealer attempted to smuggle it into the U.S in 2003.

Where has it been since then?

Rather an odd "gift"...

As for the Iranians, instead of saying "thank you" they asked for the return of more artifacts....like we stole them.

Actions do speak louder than words, don´t they? I swear this dangerous person is taking precious years off my life. The only consolation I have is that the griffin didn´t cost us anything and didn´t cost Obama anything, either, typical of his tightfistedness when it´s not a gift for someone he likes.

I did like the little bit of snark in the comment from "Mohammad Ali Najafi, head of Iran´s heritage organisation who accompanied Rouhani to New York. . . We hope this will mark the beginning of the return of other artifacts. . . ." (Hint, hint!)

Dear Leader isn´t one of those selfish, racist, trigger-happy cowboys. No, Dear Leader cares about diverse people in a tolerant way, and talks with them instead of shooting at them like those selfish, racist, trigger-happy cowboys. That´s why I love Dear Leader - he´s such a nice guy! And he´s also for: progress! It´s all so very wonderful, I get oh so moist inside...

According to Wikipedia, a griffin is "used to denote strength and military courage and leadership. Griffins are portrayed with a rear body of a lion, an eagle´s head, with erect ears, and feathered breast, with forelegs of an eagle, including claws. These features indicate a combination of intelligence and strength."

How appropriate for this administration to give up such a symbol!

Under a more classy president, this would´ve been handled quietly and without self-congratulatory fanfare.

And given the Islamicists´ penchant for destroying ancient objects they deem non-Islamist (e.g., the Buddha statues carved into cliffs in Afghanistan, that were dynamited by the Taliban), I wonder if it might have been wise to hold onto this beautiful object for a few years ... until the hoped-for return of a more tolerant government in Iran?

Thanx, OP, for this thought-provoking article. The cup, plundered from Iran, should have been returned in 2003. And yes, this whole affair reeks of the Obama marionette´s manipulator, Valerie Jarrett.

But let´s take a different look at this whole Obama-Iran affair shall we? We might find that the Griffin gift was a magician´s distraction.

Why did the Iranians pick this week, after 34 years of silence, to ´graciously´ accept a phone call from an American president, Obama (Jarrett)? Who stands to gain/lose?

One could postulate that Obama stands to gain the most, because it gives his fawning US media a chance to take the focus off the disastrous domestic fiscal problems we are grappling with.

Perhaps a more likely scenario is that the crafty Iranians (think Chess) set up this thing to give them “sincere negotiations” cover as they enter the final stage of developing a nuclear weapon(s).

It seems likely that the muslims and muslim-lovers, Rouhani, Jarrett, and Obama engineered this thing. They all stand to gain. But who loses?

The American people lose because the Executive branch and the Senate are not negotiating in good faith – or even at all – with the House to avert yet-another fiscal crisis. But…

Israel stands to lose the most. Obama’s AIDING AND ABETTING Iran to finish its nuclear weapons program WILL COST ISRAELI LIVES!

Do you realize in a couple of ways, maybe even more than a couple, Nelson Mandela has more in common or had more in common with Clarence Thomas than he does with Barack Obama? For example, Nelson Mandela (even prior to becoming president, but certainly after he became president of South Africa) insisted on compliance with his country´s constitution. He insisted on it. Obama looks at the US Constitution as an obstacle and makes end runs around it every day, practically. In that sense... These are the kind of

The U.S. federal health insurance website HealthCare.gov, which has had technology problems since its October 1 launch, is now experiencing errors in transmitting applications about 10 percent of the time, a government spokeswoman said on Friday. The online insurance marketplace relays information about new customers in ´834´ transaction forms to the private insurance companies that provide the health plans. HealthCare.gov serves people in 36 states, while 14 states are running their own websites. "We believe nine of 10 transactions are being successfully transmitted," the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, or CMS, spokeswoman Julie Bataille said at a news briefing.

To fully appreciate what former South African president Nelson Mandela was able to accomplish, it is necessary to hearken back to the South Africa he found when he emerged from prison in 1990, and what the country was like in those critical four years between his release and his election to the presidency in 1994. Put simply, South Africa was a violent, dangerous and heavily-armed place teetering precariously on the edge of an all-out race war. And in the early 1990s, it was entirely unclear which way the country would go. On one side, embittered white rejectionists were refusing to

Nelson Mandela was the most famous black man in history. He transcended race barriers to become an exemplar of human generosity of spirit. His towering personality made possible the peaceful transfer of power in South Africa from white minority to black majority rule. If he was less effective as president of his country than he had been as the symbol of resistance to apartheid, he demonstrated statesmanship unmatched in Africa. He inspired love as much as respect, and became regarded by hundreds of millions of people as a secular saint. More was asked of him, and sometimes claimed for him,

Former South African President Nelson Mandela has died at age 95 of complications from a recurring lung infection. The anti-apartheid leader and Nobel Peace Prize laureate was a beloved figure around the world, a symbol of reconciliation from a country with a brutal history of racism. Mandela was released from prison in 1990 after nearly 30 years for plotting to overthrow South Africa´s apartheid government. In 1994, in a historic election, he became the nation´s first black leader. Mandela stepped down in 1999 after a single term and retired from political and public life.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers.

Democratic Massachusetts Sen.

The acid from atmospheric carbon dioxide seeps into sea waters, dissolves and ultimately lowers the pH balance, researchers said.
