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.

You guys always lie. He said the ZIONIST REGIME was destined for destruction, not Israel. To you it may seem like not much of a difference, but actually quote Ahmadinejad properly and let your readers decide, you hoodwinking Nazi propagandist.

Israel should file formal complaints at the UN for Hezbollah's rearming, Hamas attacks, and Iran's threats.

johnjohn,

I fully understand the nuanced difference and reject those who accept it at face value.

Consider three things.

1. Just how does one think the messianic Islamist Ahmadinejad will manage to bring about Israel/Zionist Regime/Government of Jews being 'wiped off the map'? EU-3-style negotiations and discourse?

2. If it were simply a change of government, would your friend Mahmoud permit the great majority Jews to reconstitute another form of government?

3. To the extent that it serves Iran's aims of hitting America and Israel/Zionist Regime/Government of Jews, Ahmadinejad's Iran provides assistance to an al-Qaeda organization that declared war on "Jews and Crusaders," not 'Zionists'. In that regard, the two operate in parallel. The Iranina rockets rained down on Israel were not aimed at a 'Zionist Regime' but rather at Jews in their homes. Jews.

Yet you have the nerve to call me a Nazi?
