Exerts from the letter that was posted on Iranian news websites:
It is likely that Ahmadinejad will make promises of financial help during his trip to Lebanon , yet the economic situation under his government is too bad for these promises to become materialized. He is only using his trip to Lebanon for political show and he doesn't care about the people of Lebanon and Iran, their current [situation] and their future.
The letter's signatories, who include Iranian-Canadian philosopher and author Ramin Jahanbegloo and former legislator Fatemeh Haghighatjou, write that while they respect those Lebanese citizens who welcomed Ahmadinejad to Lebanon, they believe that Ahmadinejad does not deserve their trust.
