In These New Times

A new paradigm for a post-imperial world

Israeli statement at UN General Assembly

Posted by seumasach on August 4, 2012

This statement is remarkably similar to Western press narratives which, however, don’t go as far as “Persian accents”. So much for the alibi provided for Israel by the Western left to the effect that Israel prefers to maintain Assad in power.

United Nations

3rd August, 2012

“The representative of Israel said that the civilians in Syria were the deliberate targets of a brutal regime and its evil allies who would commit any crime to keep Bashar al-Assad in power.  On the ground, Iranians were assisting Assad’s henchmen.  They had been deployed on Syrian soil to help sustain the regime and take part in its killing spree against the Syrian people.  The outside forces that had been instrumental in the slaughter spoke in a Persian accent.  Unfortunately, many in the international community did not yet acknowledge that fact, despite overwhelming evidence that supported it.  While the Security Council remained paralyzed in New York, Assad’s “council of terror” continued to operate ruthlessly in Damascus.  On Assad’s advisory board sat Mr. Ahmadinejad and Mr. Nasrallah, who offered him guidance on how to butcher the Syrian people more effectively.  Bashar al-Assad had no moral authority to govern.  He had no legitimacy to rule and he never did.  It was time for all in the United Nations to speak clearly, decisively and truthfully about the reality on the ground in Syria.”
