The U.N. as forum for "The Protocols of the Elders of Zion"

Press Release
Berlin, October 2, 2008

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's speech in front of the United Nations General Assembly on September 23, 2008 is another highlight of the Iranian regime's "final solution" anti-Semitism.

Ahmadinejad's discourse was not just limited to a smear campaign against Israel.Instead he continued in the traditions of Nazi anti-Semitism when he stated the people of the world are being played with by "a small but deceitful number of people called Zionists.“

According to Ahmadinejad, the Zionists have "been dominating an important portion of the financial and monetary centers as well as the political decision-making centers of some European countries and the US in a deceitful, complex and furtive manner."

He claimed the "Zionist murderers" are responsible for practically all the evils in the world and that the United States and Europe needs to "obey the demands and wishes of a small number of acquisitive and invasive people.“ 

If even more proof is needed that there is no difference between Ahmadinejad's anti-Zionism and his anti-Semitism, it is presented here before the eyes of the world in this speech. 

As he has done so often before, Ahmadinejad talked about the pending collapse of the "Zionist regime" and openly stated what he was planning to use the nuclear weapons for, which his country is without a doubt striving for. 

German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier condemned Ahmadinejad's statements as "blatant anti-Semitism" and called them "irresponsible and unacceptable."However, he does not associate the Iranian regime's anti-Semitism with its pursuit of nuclear weapons. 

However, there can be no "dialog" or a "balancing of interests" as desired by Steinmeier with a regime that in front of the United Nations proclaimed the anti-Semitism of the “Protocols of the Elders of Zion” as its reasons of state. 

The Iranian regime threatens Israel's annihilation and does all it can to attain the technical means to implement this threat.The longer it takes for effective sanctions to be placed against the religious dictatorship in Iran, the more insolent and aggressive it will become. 

If the condemnations of Ahmadinejad's anti-Semitism are not fancy speeches without substance, there is only one possible answer to Iran's threats:

  • All business transactions that support the Iranian regime must be stopped.    
  • The federal government must also enact unilateral sanctions that put a stop to these transactions.
  • Instead of having a dialog with the mullahs, talks must be held with those powers who stand up for humanrights, personal freedom, gender equality and a secular democracy in Iran.
