Different thoughts on what Jesus might say to Mahmoud Ahmadinejad:

From Saadaya:
Jesus didn’t go for rhetoric, like the Iranian President’s, he was straightforward and direct. He was the very embodiment of Truth. I can see some of Jesus in Matthew 23 in the introduction that he got: it was a good, Christian introduction. Not one thing that was said was a lie.

From Redopto:
I think you and I, David, part theological company on this speculation you have posed. You’ve posed a smarmy non-judgmental Jesus to introduce this guy. I don’t see Jesus that way. One of the elements of His multifaceted Lordship is that He becomes the divine judge. He didn’t ooze love on the people He met in every case. Some He surprisingly showed mercy to (the woman caught in adultery, the woman at the well, and the Roman Centurian.) Others, like Judas and the rulers who heckled Him as He preached, He passed judgment on. Of Judas He said it would have been better for him if he had never been born. Would He say that about Ahmadidinajad? I don’t know. More likely, He would have said something like Jesus said to Paul on the road to Damascus in a blinding light, “Mahmoud, Mahmoud, why are you persecuting Me?”
