President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has rejected a proposal by American Oscar winning movie director Oliver Stone to make a film about him because Stone is part the "Great Satan" cultural establishment, a semiofficial news agency reported. "I sent a negative answer by Ahmadinejad to Oliver Stone," the Fars agency quoted Mehdi Kalhor, media adviser to the president, as saying Sunday. "It is right that this person is considered part of the opposition in the US, but opposition in the US is a part of the Great Satan." The term the "Great Satan" dates back to Iran's late supreme leader, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, who first called the US the Great Satan after 1979 Islamic Revolution.
