No walkout for Ahmadinejad

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad spoke to the United Nations on Wednesday, and there was no walkout. The United States, Canada and Israel did not show up (although the US delegation attributed that to Yom Kippur). The Europeans did not walk out.
A spokeswoman for the US mission to the United Nations, Erin Pelton, said the United States decided not to attend the speech given Ahmadinejad's recent comments on Israel and the fact that it was Yom Kippur.
"Over the past couple of days, we've seen Mr. Ahmadinejad once again use his trip to the UN, not to address the legitimate aspirations of the Iranian people, but to instead spout paranoid theories and repulsive slurs against Israel," Pelton said.
"It's particularly unfortunate that Mr. Ahmadinejad will have the platform of the UN General Assembly on Yom Kippur."
European Union states did not walk out, apparently because Ahmadinejad did not cross any of their "red lines."
 So wouldn't that have been enough to walk out even if it had not been Yom Kippur?

And what about the Europeans? His presence should have been enough to cross any red line.

Canada walked, today, in diplomatic speak that was a in your face declaration that we think Dinner-jacket is an inconsequential little hate monger.
