Australia to Ahmadinejad: 'See you in court?'

Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd (pictured, left) is considering hauling Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad (pictured, right) before the International Court of Justice due to the latter's repeated, hateful anti-Semitic remarks. On Tuesday, Ahmadinejad attacked the Jewish State once again, saying, "The era of the Zionist literature and the Zionist political mechanism and the Zionist bullying policies has come to an end."
Speaking to Sky TV Wednesday, Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd accused the Iranian president of repeating anti-Semitic statements.

The Australian premier said Iranian comments are 'dangerous stuff' in context of international relations and President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad 'must be condemned' for making such statements.

Rudd said his Attorney-General Robert McClelland is currently taking legal advice on the benefits of launching a case against Ahmadinejad in the United Nation's International Court of Justice.
I appreciate the sentiment, but even if the court - by some miracle - found that Ahmadinejad's 'freedom of expression' does not include the right to incite to genocide, does anyone really believe they could or would do something about it?

I am sure you know as well as anyone that the UN is a worthless and irrelavant world body. They will not do anything in regards to Iran. It is going to take military action by the West (U.S.) and or Israel. Read my post on this (Six forecast for the Middle-East). http://caseybrownmyers.blogspot.com

Nothing would be done about it. Israel's first Prime Minister and founding father David Ben Gurion was contemptuous of the UN. He believed Jews had to defend themselves no matter what world opinion said. That stand is even more applicable half a century later. Ehud Olmert and company should stop fantasizing the world is going to stop Iran's nuclear program. Israel will have to step to the plate and get the job done since only the Jewish people can protect themselves. The sooner Israel does what needs to be done to stop the mad regime in Iran, the safer Israel and the rest of the world will be.

The UN was irrelevant to the great struggle between freedom and tyranny during the half century known as the Cold War. Its going to be irrelevant to stopping Iran. Which by the way despite the Jew-hating rants of its President, remains an honored member in good standing on its various bodies. That should tell people just how little the UN takes the Iranian threat seriously.
