That’s what we learned this week when Iranian president and genocidal Islamist Mahmoud Ahmadinejad visited New York. The fact that thugs like Ahmadinejad can visit America’s largest city – a city they’d love to see in flames – without being arrested for war crimes defies logic. But what defies common decency is the fact that while Ahmadinejad addressed a high-level U.N. meeting on promoting the rule of law, the American envoys sat respectfully and listened.
What did they hear? The usual litany of anti-Semitic bull that Ahmadinejad regularly includes in his Mother’s Day greetings. He said that Israel should be “eliminated.” He said, “Fundamentally we do not take seriously the threats of the Zionists. We have all the defensive means at our disposal and are ready to defend ourselves.” He claimed that the Jews “have no roots there in history,” referring to Israel. “We do believe that they have found themselves at a dead end and they are seeking new adventures in order to escape this dead end. Iran will not be damaged with foreign bombs.”
The White House promptly condemned Ahmadinejad’s words. After refusing to walk out on them, of course. Ahmadinejad will speak again on Wednesday. At that speech, the US envoys are expected to walk out. But not before having granted him the legitimacy of staying the first time.
