America is "fully aware that Iran does not seek nuclear weapons." He condemned US and Israeli hostility. He criticized IAEA complicity with aggressive anti-Iranian policies. He also blamed UN officials for not countering US threats. He stressed Iran's commitment to end Syrian violence.
He repeated earlier calls for a nuclear free Middle East. He urged other nations for support. Nuclear disarmament is fundamental. Everyone gains. UN officials should prioritize achieving what benefits all member states.
The 16th NAM summit represents a historic opportunity. Key is transforming rhetoric into policy. As host, Iran gains prestige and support against hostile US/Israeli designs.
Israel instructed its ambassadors in all NAM member states to pressure their leaders not to attend. Washington likely did the same. Both nations have black eyes.
Bullying failed. It's a hopeful sign. Dozens of presidents, prime ministers, and other top officials showed up. Doing so expresses anti-imperial solidarity.
In response, Netanyahu lashed out. Enraged over impressive international participation, he called the summit "a disgrace and stain on humanity. So many in the international community appear to have learned nothing," he said.

He's an embarrassment to democratic values. Official policy is belligerent, racist, exploitive and rapacious. He deplores peace and stability. His nuclear and other WMDs threaten the region.
He's furious about 17 Arab IAEA members saying Israel's nuclear arsenal endangers peace. In September, its 154 members will vote on their initiative up or down. It's expected to pass.

Israel is the region's only nuclear armed and dangerous state. Its secret program menaces other nations. Its arsenal is believed to include hundreds of warheads and sophisticated delivery systems.
It falsely accuses Iran. Its own capability is suppressed. It's the region's real threat. So is Washington's military presence. Iran and Syria both are targeted.
Writer Gordon Duff believes NATO secretly authorized attacking Syria after repeated denials. On August 28, its military leaders met in Brussels. Israel, Saudi Arabia, other Gulf states, and several former Soviet Republics participated by phone.
Two issues were discussed:
(1) "How climate change in Greenland (affects) geopolitics, immigration and (EU) military affairs;" and
(2) "Syria and the potential for Russian and Chinese intervention."
