Obama's Holiday Greeting to Iran

“The President's Message to the Iranian People

— March 20, 2009 — Pop Culture
President Barack Obama addressed Iran today in a video acknowledging Nowruz, the beginning of the Persian new year and start of spring.

The Obama’s Nowruz video was only posted today (March 20) but has catapulted up the viral video charts. It’s had 72,583 views in the last couple hours, has been blogged about 86 times, and has received 885 comments at time of writing this article.

“I would like to speak directly to the people and leaders of the Islamic Republic of Iran. Nowruz is just one part of your great and celebrated culture. For many centuries, your art, your music, literature and innovation have made the world a better and more beautiful place,” Obama says in the clips.

“For nearly three decades, relations between our nations have been strained. But this holiday, we are remained of the humanity that binds us together. Indeed, you will be celebrating your new year in much the same way we Americans mark our holidays, by gathering with friends and family, exchanging gifts and stories, looking to the future with a renewed sense of hope. Within these celebrations lies the promise of a new day; the promise of opportunity for our children, security for our families, progress for our communities, and peace between nations. Those are shared hopes; those are common dreams.”

Check out the clip for the rest of Obama’s YouTube speech to Iran.
