Iranian television mistranslated Ban Ki-Moon's speech

In an earlier post, I reported that UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon had excoriated Iran at the Non-Aligned Movement conference in Tehran for its threats against Israel and its Holocaust denial. I'm sure you'll all be shocked to hear that Persian language television in Iran mistranslated Ban's speech according to Bahman Kalbasi, New York/UN Correspondent for BBC TV News' Persian language service.
Iran domestic TV drastically mistranslated several passages of Ban's speech at the NAM summit in their live Persian translations.
I wonder if Ban even mentioned the nuclear weapons program. From what I have seen, he did not.

Do you really thing the UN, officially through Ban Ki Moon and Iran are that far apart when it comes to antisemitism? I don't.

Empress Trudy,

Ban is a westerner. He's much more subtle.
