The Persian Empire (550-330 BC) was the largest and most prosperous empire of the ancient world. It covered Western and Central Asia for 1,000 years and influenced the cultures of Europe. In 1935, this ancient civilization changed its name to Iran, meaning land of the Aryans. Iran was ruled by the Pahlavi dynasty from 1925 until the expulsion of Muhammad Pahlavi in 1970 and replaced by an Islamic republic led by Ayatollah Khomeini and mullahs. Since then, Iran has stepped backwards to archaic times and transformed Shia Islam into a fanatical mass ideology while waiting for the return of the 12th Imam.
Of all the meritorious leaders in the Free World, the U.N. chose the President of Iran, Ahmadinejad, to deliver the keynote presentation to the conference on ‘racism.’ It really sounds like a sad joke, but this really shows you how de-stabilized and mixed up the U.N. is today, an organization founded on the premises of human rights, stability and peace. While many European countries, including Morocco, left the auditorium, the majority of representatives of countries in the world remained and even applauded the spiteful and racist diatribe spewed by Ahmadinejad.
Iran, under the Ayatollas, is the prototype of human rights abuses. Since Ahmadinejad assumed power in 2005, Iran has the second highest number of executions in the world and the largest number of public executions. Legally, anyone discovered to be an apostate deserves the death sentence. No one in Iran has the right to change religions. Iran prohibits freedom of expression, speech and opinions and controls publications and academic activities. The people of Iran have difficulty accessing the internet to retrieve political news since the Iranian regime systematically blocks it. As far as women are concerned, they are viewed as a source of all evil, they are watched constantly and the smallest violation is punishable by flogging in public or worse.
In addition to these serious human rights violations, the Iranian leadership continuously brainwashes its population by such rhetoric as exalting the suicide bombers and proclaiming that the act of committing suicide was one of the best ways of life. They deny that the holocaust ever happened and insist on the destruction of the “Zionist regime.” Ahmadinejad describes Israel as “a disgraceful blot” and Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, labels Israel as “a cancerous tumor.”
So there you have it! Ban Ki-moon, the Secretary General of the U.N. who had all the powers invested upon him to stop this charade from ever taking place at Durban II, approved it and sat throughout the entire racist speech by Ahmadinejad, while watching many delegates from other countries leave in disgust. You can deduce from the sad and disgusting happenings in this theater of the absurd that you can’t trust this organization, the U.N., to deliver and uphold its mission. I emphasize again, as I did in my previous essay, that the U.N. should be disbanded outright because the world, in its sorry state, cannot afford an ineffective and biased organization such as the U.N. to treat its many ailments.
