President Barack Obama isn’t the only one in the world saying the United States is responsible for most of the world’s problems….
According to the Jerusalem Post, Iran’s President Ahmadinejad gave a U.N. conference in Switzerland a history lesson today starting with America’s wrongs in World War II:
“Those in authority at the time set off two world wars,” Ahmadinejad said, in an accusation directed at Western powers. Ahmadinejad went on to accuse those powers of “killing hundred of millions of people and causing mass destruction” also in Africa and Asia.
Ahmadinejad then went on to criticize the UN “The Security Council must be the most important body for decision-making in order to promote peace. If a law is based on force, how can we secure peace and justice? The seeking of power and arrogance means racism, injustice and occupation.” set up after World War II, let’s analyze it. The veto vote – is that equality? Is that justice? Is that equality amongst human beings?” he asked, “Or rather is it arrogance and humiliation? The
At this point the Iranian president’s speech moved to the subject of Israel and the Palestninians.
“As was the case after World War II, armies occupied other territories and people were transferred from territories. In reality, under the pretext of compensating for the evil done in the name of xenophobia, they in fact set up the most violent xenophobes, in Palestine.”
“The Security Council made it possible for that illegitimate government to be set up. For 60 years, this government was supported by the world. Many Western countries say they are fighting racism; but in fact support it with occupation, bombings and crimes committed in Gaza. These countries support the criminals,” Ahmadinejad said.
“Governments must be encouraged and supported in their fights at eradictating this barbaric racism. Efforts must be made to put an end to Zionism,” he said.
As he spoke, France walked out of the room in protest. Some twenty delegates were seen leaving the room.
Still, the majority of the delegates greeted Ahmadinejad with a round of applause.
Ahmadinejad also blamed Israel for America’s invasion of Iraq, which he said benefited Israeli arms sales.
He spoke to the UN assembly on the eve of Holocaust Memorial Day, which commemorates the slaughter of six million Jews by the Nazis
during World War II.
“Those who won the Second Worl War, considered the world was with them,” he said, “set up laws that were oppressive and trampling.”
This morning the Israeli Prime Minister, Binyamin Netanyahu, told his Cabinet that while Israel commemorates the six million Jews slaughtered by the Nazis, “in Switzerland, the guest of honour is a racist and a Holocaust-denier who doesn’t conceal his intention to wipe Israel off the face of this earth”.
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad unleashed a blistering attack Monday against Israel and the United States, calling the Jewish state “racist” and lashing out at Americans for their support.
Ahmadinejad called Israel the “most cruel and racist regime.”
He followed by blaming the United States, Europe and Israel for the world’s financial crisis.
Protestors stormed the stage when Ahmadinejad began speaking and several Western delegates walked out of the room after the Iranian president said Israel was created on the “pretext of Jewish suffering” from World War II.
A wigged protester shouting “Racist! racist!” threw a soft red object at Ahmadinejad, hitting the podium and interrupting his speech.
Meanwhile, U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon urged the world Monday to rally against the threat that intolerance could rise as a result of the economic crisis, saying “the time is now” to stamp out racism.
Ban, opening the global body’s first racism conference in eight years, said racism including anti-Semitism and Islamophobia needed to be tackled.
“I fear that today’s economic crisis, if not handled properly, could evolve into a full-scale political crisis marked by social unrest, weakened governments and angry publics who have lost faith in their leaders and their own future,” the U.N. chief said.
