You can't make this up: Ahmadinejad to address UN on Yom Kippur
The Israeli delegation will not even have the opportunity to walk out on Mahmoud Ahmadinejad at the United Nations this year. That's because Ahmadinejad is speaking at the UN on Yom Kippur
The Iranian leader is expected to address the GA on the Jewish holy day of Yom Kippur, while Netanyahu will speak the next day after arriving in the United States.
According to diplomatic sources in New York, the Iranian issue will be at the top of the agenda of the GA's speakers, although there will be no votes during the 10-day assembly.
US President Barack Obama's address will open the GA on September 25, and the Iranian president's address is expected the next day.
Obama will not wait in New York to meet with Netanyahu, especially in light of his pressing election campaign. The window of opportunities for a meeting between the American and Israeli leaders will thus open on September 28 in Washington.
What could go wrong?
