Iran tries to change the subject (again)

Iran is once again trying to change the subject at the United Nations Security Council, with its UN ambassador Mohammad Khazaei demanding that the Security Council condemn Israel's nuclear weapons, according to a report by Iran's Press TV.
"Adoption of a resolution at the committees of the UN General Assembly in condemnation of nuclear weapons of the Zionist regime shows the international community's call that the Security Council should pay heed to it," Iranian IRIB news website quoted Khazaei as saying on Wednesday, according to PressTV.

"Officials of the Zionist regime are not committed to any international regulations. This has led to an international consensus against measures of the regime," the Khazaei added.

The ambassador also commented on "US unilateral support for Israel," saying that the adoption of the resolution by the UN was a "serious alarm" to Israel and its allies to stop ignoring "world public opinion."

The international community reached an agreement in May to pressure Israel to sign the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), according to PressTV.

A statement put out by the 189 NPT signatories reportedly stressed, "the importance of Israel's accession to the treaty and the placement of all its nuclear facilities under comprehensive IAEA (International Atomic Energy Agency) safeguards."

Despite being a signatory to the agreement, the United States has criticied mentioning Israel in the statement.
On whose side is the US? I'm not sure they know themselves. Or perhaps they're on Iran's side. One thing is clear in all this: The Obama administration is not on Israel's side, at least on this issue. If they were, they would never have signed that agreement (which Democrat supproters have been conveniently forgetting during this election season).
