None of these groups recognize that many countries that are members of the UN have condemned Israeli practices for the last 60 years. In most cases the US has vetoed resolutions condemning Israel in the Security Council.

Why let the facts get in the way of what is certainly a symbolic effort to further ostracize and demonize an Iranian leader.

The irony is that the ruder, the cruder and more hostile these circus-like protests are, the more they want to silence Iran's voice, and shout it down, the more Iranians and others rally to support their President or, at least hear his rationale. The protests insure more attention for his remarks.

Ahmndinejad knows this too, but clearly his detractors don't want any debate on the issues at all. They prefer to feel self righteous through one-sided denigration, not two-sided communication. Sometimes, it seems as if both sides need each other's venom for propaganda purposes.

What to expect? More noise and a possible backlash against Israel's right-wing leaders dictating to the United States.
