Attention: Assignment Editor, City Editor, News Editor, World News Editor, Governments/Political Affairs Editor
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and his entourage have arrived in New York and he will be speaking at the 67th Session of the United Nations General Assembly!
Sayeh Hassan an Iranian Canadian lawyer, blogger and pro-democracy activist stated: “Mahmoud Ahmadinejad represents a brutal, fundamentalist Islamic dictatorship that systematically arrests, tortures, rapes and executes its own people. A regime that funds and supports international terrorism, by supporting terrorist organizations such as Hammas and Hezbollah. A dictatorship that may be on the verge of acquiring nuclear weapons and is a danger not only to the people of Iran but to the international community as a whole.
Ms. Hassan expressed “while Canada has taken the right step by shutting down the Iranian Embassy in Canada, and politically isolating the Islamic Regime, unfortunately the United States has not followed suit and instead is allowing Ahmadinejad to get up on this public podium to address the international community and to continue to spread the hateful, violent and racist propaganda of the Islamic Regime.
Ms. Hassan stated “addressing the international community on such a public forum is a privilege not a right! Ahmadinejad, as the president of one of the worst dictatorships in the world, and someone who has denied the Holocaust and threatened to wipe Israel off the world map must be banned from speaking at the United Nations General Assembly!”
