A very dangerous development

in response to reader comment: Ahmadinejad at the United Nations.

As usual, the soft spoken Mr. Pipes cast a big shadow on the future. His remarks are sadly very realistic. The situation within the United Nations at this time is almost intolerable. The growing influence of the united 57 islamic countries within the O.I.C. block within the U.N. is a very worrisome situation, a clear and present danger to our universal freedoms and human rights.

I am very worried. As a matter of fact, i am starting to get real scared, thinking of what is brewing out there in Iran. Working day and night at doomsday weapons and constantly threatening to use them, i am really starting to get sleepless nights about it. As a European I can say that all these threats are reviving old anxieties.

We all know that among the hard core islamist elite, Mr Ahmadinejad is just about the maddest of them all. I saw him in 2009 in Geneva when he was blurting out the most vicious racist speech on Jews and Israel during a UN-held conference on ... racism. If it would have been any other speaker, they would have thrown him out, but in his case, about half the people listening walked out in protest. Most (not all) spoke in shame of his words. Anyway, the Iranian situation, as also, the U.N. situation in regard to human rights and free thought and speech, is very tense, to say the least. I am very glad that there are such eloquent speakers as Mr Pipes, who try to explain and warn about the dangers ahead. I sincerely hope all will take a turn for the better, in Iran in the first place, and within the U.N.-body in the second, and that cooler heads will prevail. Lord knows, the world has already once been on the brink of extinction. Lets not go there again. For heavens sake.
