Iranian representative speaks at NATO conference

Knesset Members Arieh Elad (National Union) and Nachman Shai (Kadima) walked out of a NATO Parliamentary Assembly Seminar this week, after a representative of the Iranian government was asked to speak.
“It was an insult to the international community, NATO and Israel to invite Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Ali Hani to speak,” Shai told The Jerusalem Post on Thursday. “A state that acts against peace and stability should not have the privilege of speaking at such an event.”

"Representatives of Israel will not listen to a representative of a state that calls to wipe Israel from the map,” Eldad said in a statement. The National Union MK added that the Iranian diplomat should have listed ways to destroy Israel in his speech to the NATO event, which was focused on the Middle East and North Africa.

Shai said that he heard from other delegates that Hani said “interesting things” in his speech on Monday.

The Iranian diplomat reportedly discussed the importance of “human dignity, rule of law, justice and respect for different communities,” Shai said. He also called for a Middle East free of nuclear weapons.

“The Canadian representative said to me that he wasted half-an-hour, and couldn’t believe anything the Iranian said,” the Kadima MK added.

“I think that by leaving the conference, we made [the other countries] feel embarrassed about inviting Iran, which was the right thing to do,” Shai said.
What is wrong with these morons in the 'international community'? Do they really believe that we are Iran's only target?

Their actions remind me of Churchill's definition of an appeaser as one who feeds the tiger in hopes of being eaten last.

NATO is merely trying decide whether to allow Iran in.

The so-called "international community" have willingly infected themselves with the terminal disease of "relativism"!!

I would wonder if the Obama posse arranged for this as part of his destruction of NATO, along with the flamethrowing he's doing with NATO in Libya on behalf of who knows who (maybe his cousin Odinga's al shabab posse?). Always good for the Euros to sit compliantly and listen to the guys who are aiming to chuck nukes onto them. The Euros seem to lack any guidelines for their ongoing civilization; they let things go way to far and then burn down the world in a war to regain the tracks.
