UN Security Council Fails to Condemn Ahmadinejad
Once again, the UN fails to take action against an obvious threat against Israel.
Iranian Fars News reported this morning:
TEHRAN (Fars News Agency)- UN Security Council does not authorize statement condemning Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s recent comments about Israel’s destruction.
The UN Security Council refused to approve a statement Friday that would condemn remarks about Israel’s impending destruction attributed to Iranian president because of objections from Indonesia, council diplomats said.
Qatar, the only Arab nation on the council, said it had no instructions, which also meant approval on Friday was impossible, the diplomats said. The statement must be approved by all 15 council members.
France’s UN ambassador Jean-Marc de La Sabliere, who called for condemnation of the remarks attributed to President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, said it was unfortunate that the council could not act immediately.
But he said he would try again on Monday to get all 15 council members to approve the statement.
Indonesia, the world’s largest Muslim country, said Ahmadinejad had not really threatened Israel(?), council diplomats said.
