Whirling Durban II Insanity

Just when you think that Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's rants can't get worse, he and his contingent comes along and manages to top his performance earlier in the day at the Durban II conference on racism.

His fellow Iranian stooges call Elie Wiesel, a Nobel prize winner and survivor of the Nazi Holocaust during World War II, a Zion-Nazi. (ed: corrected reference to member of Ahmadinejad's entourage; thanks to Occasional Reader at LGF).

These are the people with whom Israel is supposed to make peace? Ahmadinejad and Iran have no interest in peace with Israel. They seek Israel's destruction and repeatedly call for Israel's destruction. Iran backs both Hizbullah and Hamas in their efforts to attack Israel on a regular basis. Iran backs Syria, which also seeks Israel's destruction. Iran's efforts destabilize the region and cause conflict with Israel, which inures to Iran's spreading influence in the region.

Yet, the US and the West want to push Israel to make concession after concession with the Palestinian Authority, whose leader Mahmoud Abbas, is an avowed Holocaust denier and who also seeks nothing less than Israel's destruction although he and his followers have a longer term outlook as compared to Hamas, who can't help themselves but attack Israelis at every opportunity and who are restocking and regrouping for the next battle.

The UN is busy trying to spin damage control on the whole conference, even as more countries withdraw from the conference and even the host country of Switzerland is taking heat for their leader's meeting with Ahmadinejad. There's being neutral and then there's taking sides with silent assent. Switzerland, through its actions, sided with Ahmadinejad. That's just evil.

What's truly sickening is that yesterday's speech by Ahmadinejad was apparently toned down, with Ahmadinejad taking out the worst bits at the request of UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon. Ahmadinejad apparently wanted to go full tilt on the Holocaust denial on the very day that the world engages in Holocaust Remembrance Day.

What we got yesterday was Moon's best efforts? Moon should have told Ahmadinejad to take a hike and dump him as the keynote speaker.

Instead, Ahmadinejad once again exposed the UN and this conference as a mockery and waste of time.

It's curious that photos of Elie Wiesel's demonstration against Iran's very presence at the conference do not refer to the Zion-Nazi slurs against Wiesel. Apparently the photographers and editors didn't think this noteworthy?
