From Israel News:
Iran’s ambassador to the UN, Mohammad Khazaee, sent a letter of protest to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moonin which he wrote that “there is no explanation for Israel’s continuing threats against Tehran”. He was referring to an interview given by former Deputy Defense Minister Ephraim Sneh to the Sunday Times in which he said that if Iran were not further sanctioned by this Christmas Israel would attack the country. Sneh told the paper that if Israel were forced to attack the Islamic Republic on its own it would do so, remarks the Iranian ambassador deemed “irresponsible”.
Khazaee once again stressed that his country’s nuclear program was intended for peaceful purposes and said that “the only threat in the region is Israel’s nuclear arsenal, which remains unsupervised to this day”.
That anyone might buy into the moral equivalency of comparing Iran to Israel is sad enough, but given the liklihood that the UN will probably side with Iran on this issue is tragic. It was only last week when the UN’s chief nuclear inspector at the IAEA, Mohamed ElBaradei, told the world he believed Israel was the number one threat to the Middle East.
