Ahmadinejad Moves People

Yep, Chairman Short moves them right out the door with his words. He is a creepy little man.

Walkout at UN conference after Iran president calls Israel 'racist'

British delegates joined a dramatic diplomatic walkout today when President Ahmadinejad of Iran told a major UN conference against racism that the state of Israel had been founded "on the pretext of Jewish suffering" during the Second World War.

Around 20 delegates, including envoys from the UK, France, and Finland stood up and left the room at what was considered an anti-Semitic remark by the Iranian leader, who has repeatedly called for Israel to be wiped off the map.

Nine Western countries including Israel and the United States had already decided to boycott the conference entirely because its draft declaration endorsed the conclusions of an anti-racism conference in South Africa eight years ago in which Islamic nations pushed through a text equating Zionism with racism.

Even before the walkout, Mr Ahmadinejad's speech had been interrupted by three protesters dressed as clowns who where quickly bundled from the vast conference room at the Palais des Nations by guards.

This is an excellent and concise read from Maggie Thurber. I recommend it to you:

Calling it 'capitalism' doesn't make it so

Another Thurber, James, said;

"Let us not look back in anger, nor forward in fear, but around in awareness."


"You can fool too many of the people too much of the time. "
