Iranian TV Compares President Bush to "Mr. Hitler"

The following are excerpts from the Iranian TV series "The New Fascism":

In his book Mein Kampf, Mr. Hitler explicitly referred to this, and when Goebbels wrote the Nazi party's platform, Hitler said to him: "Whenever you make a decision, the people will not be involved. Either the people is [sic.] with you or against you." This is exactly what Mr. Bush is saying today, following the events of 9/11. Today we are witnessing a new fascism, which is rooted in the old fascism. These are Mr. Hitler's words. Stalin, too, said to Trotsky, his last foreign minister: "If Russian society opposes you, it means its annihilation."

This is also what Genghis Khan wrote to his eldest son, Jochi, in his will. The message in all this is: Stay away from reason and logic, the public is not involved in your decisions or your government's decisions, and anything you decide– the public will either be with you or against you.
