The Fox New TV (US) asked the Iranian President Ahmedi Nijad;

         "When you look into the mirror in the morning what do you
say to yourself"?
         He answered: I see the person in the mirror and tell him
"Remember, you are no
         more than a small servant, ahead of you today is the heavy
responsibility, and
         that is to serve the Iranian nation".

         Ahmedi Nijad, the Iranian President who astonished many when
he first reached
         to the office of the Presidency by donating all the high
valued Iranian
         carpets to one of the mosques in Tehran by replacing them
with the low cost
         ordinary carpets.

         He observed that there was a huge extravagant langue for receiving and
         welcoming the VIPs and he ordered it to be closed and asked
the protocol
         office to arrange for an ordinary room instead with the
wooden chairs.  On
         many instances he joins the cleaning staff of the
municipality for cleaning
         the streets in the area where his home and the Presidency are located.
         Under his authority whenever he appoints any minister to his
post he gets a
         signed document from him with many points, particularly
highlighting that he
         shall remain poor and that his personal and his relatives
accounts will be
         watched and the day he leaves the ministry shall be with dignity, and
         therefore it is not lawful for him or his relatives to take
any advantage of
         his office.

         First of all he declared himself all the "Big" wealth and
property he owned
         was a Peugeot 504 car, model 1977, an old small house
inherited from his
         father forty years ago in one of the poorest zones in
Tehran. His accounts
         with a zero balance and the only money comes in to his a/c
was from his salary
         from the university as a lecturer with an amount of US$ 250 only.

         For your information the President still lives in that same
house. This is all
         what he owns; the president of one of the world's important
         strategically, economically, politically and with regard to
its oil and

         He even doesn't take his personal salary with the argument
that all the wealth
         belongs to the nation and he is the safeguard over it.

         One of the things that impressed the staff at the presidency
is the bag the
         President brings with him every day, which contains his
breakfast; some
         sandwiches or bread with olive oil and cheese prepared by
his wife and eats
         and enjoys it with all happiness.

         One of the other things he changed was his personal carrier
"the President's
         Aircraft" to a cargo aircraft in order to save the spending
from the public
         treasury and he ordered that he will be flying with the
ordinary airline in
         the economy class.

         He organizes meetings every now and then with all the
ministers to know
         their activities and efficiency and he closed down the
office of the manager
         of the president and any minister can enter to his office with out any
         permission. He also stopped the welcome ceremonies like the
red carpet, the
         photo session or any personal advertisement or respect of
any kind while
         visiting any place in the country.

         Whenever he has to stay in any of the hotels he asks them to
make sure not
         to give him a room with any big bed because he doesn't like
to sleep on beds
         but rather likes to sleep on the floor on a simple mattress
with a blanket.

         Refer to some of the photographs which also confirm the above.

         The Iranian president is sleeping in the guest room of his
house after getting
         away from his special guards who follow him wherever he goes
and photo is
         taken by his small brother according to the Wifaq Newspaper
which published
         this photo and the next day the photo was published in most
of the world's
         newspapers and magazines and particularly the Americans.

         During the prayer you can see that he is not sitting in the first row.

         And the final photo is of his dining room where the
president is busy eating
         his meal.
