Will Mazin, Neri, Hiba, Basil, Marwa and Stephanie, Eva and Eyal denounce this disgrace? Or will these self professed peacemakers hide their heads in the sand?

Lets see where you stand on this issue.

IsraelNN.com) Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad took the podium at the Durban II international conference in Geneva on Monday, only to face a loud heckler and widespread walkout as he spoke.

As Ahmadinejad began his speech, three men in the audience rose, wearing clown wigs, and began shouting criticism, calling the Iranian president a racist. The three were removed from the hall by security personnel.

The protesters were later identified as French students Jeremy Cohen, Rafael Hadad and Jonathan Hayoun, members of the French Jewish Student Union. “We dressed as clowns because we wanted to show that his speech and the entire conference is a joke,” Cohen explained.

The speech continued as planned for a brief time. However, as Ahmadinejad began to harshly criticize Israel, dozens of people stood and left the hall in protest.

In total, representatives of 23 states and organizations left the hall in protest of Ahmadinejad's speech. Among them were representatives from the European Union, Jordan, and France.

In addition, three Israeli students who had managed to enter the hall rose as Ahmadinejad derided Israel and began yelling “racist” in his direction. The students were removed. One of the three, Student Union head Boaz Toporovsky, said the audience had expressed approval with the protest, clapping for the students as they disrupted the speech.

United Nations representatives were among those who remained in the hall as Ahmadinejad continued, calling Israel a cruel and racist state and accusing Jews of using the Holocaust as an excuse to steal Arab land.

Ahmadinejad also called Zionism a form of racism, and accused “the Zionists” of working with the United States to wage war in Iraq and oppress the Afghani people.

Among those who remained in the hall throughout the speech were many who vocally protested what Ahmadinejad was saying. Others expressed support for the speech.

President of the European Jewish Congress Dr. Moshe Kantor responded to Ahmadinejad's speech saying:

"The European and other delegations that walked out in the moment Ahmadinejad began his diatribe against Israel should be commended for having the moral conviction not to stand for this mockery of human rights, but they should not have been participants to begin with."

"If Hitler himself had addressed this forum, would UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon sit as politely as he did for the lies and hatred spewed forth by Ahmadinejad? Shame on him, and shame on anyone who stayed in the room to hear – or applaud – his evil rants. Ahmadinejad’s brand of revisionist history and lies should not rule the day, but we fear that Durban II will continue to provide a platform for more of this hatred.

I asked a friend who is Persian (Muslim) to translate what Ahmadinejad actually said about Israel being wiped off the map: the phrase بايد از صفحه روزگار محو شود translates to "It should, from the page of life/history, vanish/disappeared"

Just FYI

You love to be a victim and you want war ....
I guess you will get more reasons to be a victim and find more ways to kill arabs, as you think your victimhood justify war.


SAME ON YOU

Neri:

We still have to fight that war so that we can be free. Your sarcasm is just dripping . People will never believe that the Holocaust did not happen unless they are Israeli "zionists" such as yourself.

Please do not flatter yourself even in Ivrit.

By the way the victimhood mentality that you are referring to, I could sense it in some of your posts and replies about the holocust, is it possible that Israelis also have this victimhood mentality to keep doing what they are doing now?

That depends on the meaning of the word " victimhood".

Jews were victimized all though the centuries.Than the Holocaust happened and than the Arabs continued victimizing us

The Artabs on the other hand could have ended their victimaization by accepting a two state solution in 1947.or even as late as 2000.

here we go it is not fair what he did and said, but lets face it Israel is already enjoying a global recognition for their right to exist, how long shall palestinians wait to enjoy the same rights?

here we go it is not fair what he did and said, Why could you not have said just that and left it as such. Why must there always be a disclaimer or a "but".

Now I see that you can see that Hiba gave you her answers more clearly.

I suggest you to change the post title to "SHAME ON TOSIFETTA", then you will enjoy master-victim status, shahid of the year ולתפארת מדינת ישראל

who knows, may you will be one of the one who will fire the torch in future "YOM HAATZMAUT" ignoring the outcome of that war.

באמת מסכן אתה .... אחמרניג'ד אמר שלא היתה שואה, אסון, אנשים באמת עלולים להאמין בזה - אתה עוד עלול להאמין בזה

you are the one who play victim here, feel victim for the words of the stupid Ahmadinejad and the double your victim thinking Hiba using the victim tool.

When you read what Hiba say, is that your request to "denounce this disgrace" as you need to test our honesty, and when hiba give you honest answer she gently tried to hint you for something.

Both people, the Palestinian and the Jews went through grate trauma. refusing to see and ignoring one side trauma as Ahmadinejad did, is the same thing you do.

You are not a victim, you are simply deaf and blind.

Hiba.

My posting has nothing to do with the "naqba" or the Holocaust. It asks of you ,that you denounce AhmadIranNazi and the shame that the UN has bought upon itself by his appearance and rants.

But here we go again with that victimhood mentality.

I for one am not asking Arabs for empathy but rather that they stop demonizing us and most importantly stop trying to annihilate us.
