Iranian President’s Speech to the UN is Greeted By Disgust

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad delivered his speech to the United Nations but quickly lost part of his audience. Delegates from Canada and Israel did not attend the speech at all and others, including representatives from the United States, France, Germany and the United Kingdom chose to leave after hearing only a short portion of the speech. Ahmadinejad immediately attacked the United States on a number of fronts during his speech, including accusing the US of causing the worldwide economic crisis on purpose.

The speech’s first accusation came when Ahmadinejad stated that the terrorist attacks on the US on 9/11 were “mysterious” in nature and called them nothing more than a pretext for a US led war on Afghanistan and Iraq. He also took great exception to the American led killing of Osama Bin Laden without any attempt at a “fact finding” mission which would have investigated what he called hidden elements that were also involved.

Ahmadinejad then turned to the economic front, claiming in part that the US was the main cause of the global monetary problem and that by dominating the world policy making establishments, insured that it could remain a “bully” and dooming the other countries to failure. He also said that the US had historically spent more money than it had on the military and printed trillions of dollars that it could not cover which directly led to the problems with inflation.

His speech went even darker then, when he claimed that the US and other countries were treating Zionism as “sacred”, using the holocaust as an excuse to continue paying money as a fine or a ransom to the Zionists. He added that the Americans, especially had no faith in God or the path of divine prophets, worshipping only power and wealth instead. His speech culminated in his assertion that his own nation should serve as the new model for life in the modern world and his fears that the US would try to subvert the current uprisings in the Middle East for their own gains and needs.

That echoed some of his sentiments from a speech he gave on Wednesday at an invitation only event for students and professors from several schools. That question and answer event featured strict security, including having to give up phones and cameras at the door, was described as friendly and up beat. Each person received two gifts, a hand painted plate and a book at the end. Attendees described Ahmadinejad as friendly, laughing and telling jokes from time to time. Protestors picketed the event, decrying it only as an attempt at public relations by a dictator who has a record of oppression against women, violence against gays and more. That event occurred on the same day that two hikers were released from an Iranian prison after months of delays.

In 2007, Ahmadinejad gave a much different appearance, stating that Israel should be wiped off the map and reacting poorly to nuclear weapons based questions from the crowd..
