Iran and the UN

During Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's speech at the UN he accused the US and the UK of using the UN for their own purposes. Frankly, besides the fact that every country does so, I think it is sickeningly hypocritical for any Muslim leader to level such an accusation. A little research reveals how the Muslim bloc of the UN has manipulated it into spending a hugely disproportionate amount of time discussing the "evil Zionsit regime".

Also, former Iranian nationals staged a protest outside the UN denouncing Ahmadinejad as a terrorist.

Furthermore he denounced Israel again: "the pretexts for the creating of the regime occupying al-Qods al-Sharif (Jerusalem) are so weak that its proponents want to silence any voice trying to merely speak about them."

In other words, he should be allowed to continue denying the Holocaust and calling for Israel to be destroyed.
