    Israel Wants Iran Expelled From U.N.

    Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 2:24 pm

    The “international community” is responding as it always does when an Islamic country threatens to “erase Israel from the map”. Britain called on an Iranian official to step up and condemn the Iranian President’s speech, the U.N. threatened to debate it, and each country that’s expected to have an opinion issued a strongly worded statement to the media. Iran, of course, was scared right into issuing their own statement in response. They announced that, while they wouldn’t mind seeing Israel erased from the planet, their nuke program is for entirely peaceful purposes. There’s nothing to see here, please move along.

    Let’s analyze Iran’s “peaceful nukes” claim for just a second. Iran has stated more than once that its goal is the complete elimination and destruction of the Jewish state of Israel. Ask yourself how a country like Iran would go about completely destroying an entire country, even one as small as Israel, and killing every Jew living there (keep in mind Israel is a nuclear power). They’ve already tried an Arab, allied attack. That didn’t work out so well, and conventional wars don’t erase countries from the map, especially when the target country has the ability to wipe you out first. There is a weapon however that would do the job, and it’s the only weapon capable of eliminating a country that already has that weapon. Amazingly enough, it just happens to be made from the stuff Iran is currently trying to acquire for peaceful purposes. Coincidence? I think not.

    Israel’s vice prime minister said Iran should be expelled from the United Nations after its new president said Israel should be “wiped off the map,” and Britain summoned an Iranian diplomat Thursday to protest the remarks.

    Italy on Thursday also condemned the words of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, telling the Iranian ambassador the comments were “unacceptable” and that they confirm worries over the political positions — and nuclear intentions — of Iran’s new leadership.

    Shimon Peres, Israel’s vice prime minister and a Nobel peace laureate, said it was “impossible to ignore” Ahmadinejad’s comments.

    “Since the United Nations was established in 1945, there has never been a head of state that is a U.N. member state that publicly called for the elimination of another U.N. member state,” Shimon Peres told Israel Radio.

    In a speech Wednesday in Tehran, Ahmadinejad said “there is no doubt that the new wave (of attacks) in Palestine will wipe off this stigma (Israel) from the face of the Islamic world.”. . . . . . .

      Noticeably absent from this article is the reaction of the U.S.? Did Al A.P. neglect to include our strong message, or did we fail to issue one? I’m almost afraid to check further on this.

    2. Jennifer Rast Says:

      According to Fox News we also issued a statement condemning the act and demanding a retraction. If Rice was the author of the statement, a doubt it would even be considered “strongly worded”.

      Maybe the U.N. will pass another resolution.
      That’ll scare them into submission!! NOT!!!

      Annan’s office issued a statement Thursday saying that the UN Secretary-General read Ahmadinejad’s comments “with dismay.” According to the statement, Annan wanted to remind all UN states that “Israel is a long-standing member of the United Nations with the same rights and obligations as every other member,” and that “under the United Nations Charter, all members have undertaken to refrain from the threat or use of force against the territorial integrity or political independence of any state.”
