Netanyahu in New York
Netanyahu is a world class thug.
by Stephen Lendman
He's not there yet, but he's coming. Three days of torment and venomous anti-Iranian propaganda are planned. Big Apple residents will need decompression time when he leaves.
His kind isn't welcome. He's toxic, deadly and destructive. Expect resentment to be expressed while he's there. It'll remain when he's gone.
He'll arrive on September 27. On the same day, he'll address the UN General Assembly. Why they let him in who knows. He's expected to meet Obama who'll also be there. Between them, they're a one-punch against freedom, equity, justice and peace.
He's an ambassador of hate and ill will. He's pure evil. Maligning Iran tops his agenda. He condemned Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei's important NAM summit speech .
What he said bears repeating. He spoke honestly and forthrightly. He took aim at destructive US/Israeli policies. They include torture, assassinations, gulag injustice, imperial wars, and humanity threatening malevolence.
They spurn international law principles. Their demand their way or else. Their media disseminate lies, not truth. They promote war, not peace. America's 99% demands better. NAM solidarity against what they represent is vital. So is eliminating catastrophic weapons of mass destruction.
"The Islamic Republic of Iran considers the use of nuclear, chemical and similar weapons as a great and unforgivable sin. We proposed the idea of 'Middle East free of nuclear weapons' and we are committed to it."
All countries are entitled to develop peaceful nuclear power. Israel's nuclear arsenal menaces humanity. Iran "has never been after nuclear weapons and will never give up the right of its people to use nuclear energy for peaceful purposes. Our motto is: 'Nuclear energy for all and nuclear weapons for none.' "
He called Palestine an "agonizing issue." European immigrants massacred defenseless people. They stole their country. Crimes continue daily. "This is one of the most important issues of the human community."
"Hardly a day passes without reports of murder, injury and arrests of the youth who stand up to defend their homeland and their honor and protest against the destruction of their farms and homes."
"The Zionist regime, which has carried out assassinations and caused conflicts and crimes for decades by waging disastrous wars, killing people, occupying Arab territories and organizing state-sponsored terrorism in the region and in the world, labels the Palestinian people as "terrorists", the people who have stood up to fight for their rights."
Palestine belongs to Palestinians. Occupation threatens global peace and security. Exiled diaspora Palestinians are entitled to return.
