United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has rebuked Iran over its leadership´s anti-Israel threats to annihilate the State of Israel.
Paragraph-1 Contains
Ban described the rhetoric as “offensive and inflammatory,” and said in a statement the region´s leadership should use its voices to lower, rather than raise tensions.
Paragraph-2 Contains
Both Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khameini separately vowed last week that a “new Middle East” would someday be without Israel.
Paragraph-3 Contains
Ahmadinejad added in a “Quds Day” speech to thousands of shrieking supporters at a Tehran University rally on Friday that Americans would be omitted from the region as well. The day marked the final Friday of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan.
Paragraph-4 Contains
Earlier in the week, Khameini had said in similar remarks that Israel would some day be “returned” to the “Palestinian nation” and cease to exist.
Paragraph-5 Contains
It is Iran´s Supreme Leader who ultimately exerts control over the country´s nuclear development policy, and its uranium enrichment activities. Those programs are galloping ahead despite all efforts by the international community to persuade Iran to slow down – if not altogether halt – its hurtle towards nuclear capability.
Paragraph-6 Contains
Numerous international intelligence agencies have reported the Islamic republic has already achieved, or is close to achieving, the ability to build an atomic weapon of mass destruction. (IsraelNationalNews © 2011 08/19/12)
