UN General Assembly President accuses US of 'demonizing' Iran

UN General Assembly President Miguel d'Escoto Brockmann of Nicaragua has accused the United States of 'demonizing' Iran.
The outspoken UN General Assembly president on Tuesday accused the United States of demonizing Iran's president and criticized the International Criminal Court for issuing an arrest warrant for Sudan's leader on war crimes charges in Darfur.

Miguel d'Escoto Brockmann, a Roman Catholic priest from Nicaragua with openly leftist views, also reiterated that the more he thinks about the conditions that Israel imposes on the Palestinians, the more he tends "to think about apartheid."

During a wide-ranging press conference, d'Escoto insisted he wasn't being divisive or promoting his own agenda — but was just fulfilling his duty as president of the 192-member General Assembly to uphold the UN Charter and promote peace and nonviolence.
But of course. He's only following orders fulfilling his duty. But wait: There's more. Some of his best friends are Joooooos.
Asked whether he approved of Ahmadinejad saying he wants to wipe a UN member state — Israel — off the map, d'Escoto said "if he said that, it's lamentable," but he quickly added that "words as such don't kill" and it's the actions that have to be watched.

"I don't hate Israel, much less do I hate the Jewish people," d'Escoto added. "In fact they are very high on my list of people that I love."
And the US response?
Mark Kornblau, spokesman for the US Mission to the United Nations, when asked to comment on the criticism of the US, said: "It's hard to make sense of Mr. D'Escoto's increasingly bizarre statements."
Bizarre is putting it mildly.

D'Escoto Brockmann has called for a boycott of Israel, has compared Israel to Nazis and has called for Israel's destruction.

The United States pays 22% of the UN's annual budget. That comes to about $5 billion per year. That's a lot more than the AIG bonuses.

I don't recall the UN guy having a problem when Chavez point blank called GWBush satan. Alleged ad hominem attacks are only wrong when non-US & non-Israeli people are the targets.

When someone says my "best friends are Jews" you know he's the exact opposite.

Miguel d'Escoto Brockmann has illustrated for all to see the UN version of Hopenchange.

Its not Iran's behavior he condemns but Israel's response to it. No wonder he thinks Iran's is being "demonized."

The UN General Assembly President is a sly fox with a wicked tongue.
