Iran Lodges UN Complaint Against Israel
Iran has written a formal complaint to UN Secretary General Kofi Annan demanding the Security Council condemn Israel for its repeated threats made against Iran.
The threats were "matters of extreme gravity" and the U.N. Security Council should condemn them and demand that Israel "cease and desist immediately from the threat of the use of force against members of the United Nations," Iranian U.N. Ambassador Javad Zarif said.
His comments came in a letter to U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan dated November 10 and circulated at the United Nations on Wednesday.
Perhaps looking to ride the current wave of requests to the Security Council seeking Israeli condemnation, this from a country whose president as recently as this week said that Israel "is destined for destruction and it will disappear soon.”
Of course, the man who said with conviction that Israel should be "wiped off the map" also plans to celebrate Iran's full nuclear capabilities in February.
At ThreatsWatch, we do not utilize a 'Comedy' category, but the Iranian complaint of Israeli verbal threats against it would have certainly qualified. Perhaps if Israel had simply used a proxy to verbally threaten Iran just as the Central Banker of Terrorism uses Hizballah to kill and maim Israelis, then the matter may have been sufficiently obscured as to undermine the Iranian idea of complaint.
