Delegates walk out on Tehran's Evil Elf
It's what Obama should have done when Daniel Ortega was insulting America for nearly an hour yesterday at the Summit of the Americas.
These guys walked out and Ahmadinejad wasn't even insulting their own countries:
As Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad called for the eradication of Israel in his address to the United Nations anti-racism conference which
opened its week long event in Geneva on Monday, delegates walked out, hecklers wearing clown-wigs shouted 'racist' towards him and were escorted out by security personnel and his speech was continually interrupted.
"Governments must be encouraged and supported in their fights at eradicating this barbaric racism. Efforts must be made to put an end to Zionism," he said in the rambling speech he gave at the podium.
As he spoke, some 23 EU delegates were seen walking out the room when Ahmadinejad said Israel was created on the "pretext of Jewish suffering" from World War II.
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 such as those committed in Gaza. These countries support the criminals," Ahmadinejad said.
Also, just as he was beginning to speak, two guys with clown wigs got up and started to heckle the Iranian president. He called them "ignorant."
I guess at least some congratulations are in order for the EU delegates who didn't boycott the whole shebang. But they should still be taken to task for signing off on a final statement that will condemn Israel and "Zionism."
