Questions for Mahmoud Ahmadinejad
Wall Street Journal / Karim Sajadpour

• Muhammad Javad Larijani, one of your senior colleagues and an adviser to the supreme leader, this year referred to Mr. Obama as "kaka sia," a racist term akin to "nigger." Do you condemn Mr. Larijani's words?

• How did you react when your longtime ally Fidel Castro recently implored you to stop slandering the Jews, and argued that Iran's religious dogmatism makes a nuclear compromise less likely?

• Three senior Iranian diplomats have recently defected in Europe, denouncing your government's illegitimacy and seeking political asylum. This is unprecedented in Iran's modern history. Is it a sign of wider disaffection within your regime?
