From every corner they seek to destroy us

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinadinnerjacket met this weekend with 'moderate' Palestinian Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh at the opening of the Asian Games in Doha, Qatar, and assured him that Israel's demise is imminent. According to the Iranian news agency IRNA:
According to the Media Department of the Presidential Office, President Ahmadinejad, in the meeting, said: "As everybody knows, the Zionist regime was created to establish dominion of arrogant states over the region and to enable the enemy to penetrate the heart Muslim land."

Saying the Israeli regime was inherently a "threat," he said it was established in the region to create tensions and impose the arrogant policies of the US and UK on regional states.

"Under no circumstances can it contribute to peace and security." Premier Haniyah, for his part, praised the support of the Iranian government and nation for the cause of the Palestinian nation, saying "the Iranian nation's brilliant stand in the rightful battles of the Palestinians encourages them and signifies their deep understanding of Islamic principles."

"The Intifada (uprising) of the Palestinian nation will continue until the cause of the Palestines is materialized and Al-Qods Al-Sharif is liberated," he added.

Referring to the decline of the Zionist regime and success of the freedom struggle of the Palestinians, President Ahmadinejad said: "Today scores of Western politicians are in doubt as to the future of this illegitimate regime and its existence has come under question."

He further said that it is the religious duty of all Muslims to support the Palestinian nation.

"There is no doubt the Palestinian nation and Muslims as a whole will emerge victorious," the president told the Palestinian prime minister.

"The continued commission of crimes by the Zionist regime will speed up the collapse of this fictitious regime."
I sometimes wonder whether 'scores of western politicians' are even 'in doubt.' On Friday, with 'scores of western politicians' voting in favor, the United Nations told Israel to drop dead. The UN General Assembly passed no less than six anti-Israel resolutions, and the only countries to vote against all of them were the United States, Israel and three small Pacific island nations (the Marshall Islands, Micronesia, and Palau).
In the key resolution on the "Peaceful Settlement of the Question of Palestine," the General Assembly welcomed the Nov. 26 cease-fire in Gaza and urged both sides to maintain the truce which it said could pave the way for negotiations towards a solution to the conflict.

The Palestinian UN Observer, Riyad Mansour, said the vote -- 157 to 7 with 10 abstentions -- showed massive support in the international community for moving forward on the peace process.


The resolutions are not legally binding -- as Security Council resolutions are -- but they are a reflection of world opinion. Each of the six resolution received more than 100 "yes" votes. The United States, Israel, the Marshall Islands, Micronesia, and Palau voted against all six resolutions.

The only other resolution to top 150 "yes" votes declared any attempt to impose Israel's laws, jurisdiction and administration on Jerusalem illegal, and therefore null and void. It was approved by a vote of 157-6 with 10 abstentions.

The other resolutions demanded that Israel withdraw from the Golan Heights and supported the UN Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People, the UN Secretariat's Division for Palestinian Rights, and the UN's special information program on the question of Palestine.


Syria's UN Ambassador Bashar Ja'afari accused the US Of using its veto in the Security Council to protect its Israeli friends and prevent them from complying with UN Resolutions.

After the vote in favor of the Golan Heights resoution -- 107-6 with 60 abstentions -- Ja'afari thanked members for their support for Syria's right to retrieve its land occupied by Israel in 1967. He appealed for a just peace and for the liberation of the Golan Heights.
What will it take for some of the abstainers to come out of their catatonic stupor and take a meaningful position? Inquiring minds want to know.
