US demonises Ahmadinejad yet 'canonizes' dictators - U.N. General Assembly president

Quote:
UNITED NATIONS — The outspoken U.N. General Assembly president on Tuesday accused the United States of demonizing Iran's president and criticized the International Criminal Court for issuing an arrest warrant for Sudan's leader on war crimes charges in Darfur.

Miguel d'Escoto Brockmann, a Roman Catholic priest from Nicaragua with openly leftist views, also reiterated that the more he thinks about the conditions that Israel imposes on the Palestinians, the more he tends "to think about apartheid."

During a wide-ranging press conference, d'Escoto insisted he wasn't being divisive or promoting his own agenda — but was just fulfilling his duty as president of the 192-member General Assembly to uphold the U.N. Charter and promote peace and nonviolence.

Briefing reporters on his recent three-week trip that included a stop in Tehran, d'Escoto said he was struck by the great support and respect for Iran from its neighbors at a summit meeting of the Economic Cooperation Organization — a regional body founded in 1985 by Iran, Turkey and Pakistan — especially for helping "to alleviate the plight" of Afghan refugees in Iran.

"That was a very wonderful experience to see that, in contrast to the attitude that we find, sadly, here where we are," d'Escoto said.

"I don't think anyone can doubt that in our part of the world ... (President Mahmoud) Ahmadinejad has been demonized," he said. "The United States has been in the business of the demonization of people forever and the canonization of the worst of dictators."

D'Escoto singled out Ferdinand Marcos of the Philippines, Nicaragua's Anastasio Samoza and Chile's Augusto Pinochet."

I really like your posts, finance guy. Harmid Karzai's government is very corrupt and is part of why the Afghans have lost confidence in the Western presence.

It's also disgusting that the US media continues to perpetuate the myth that Ahmadinejad wants to "wipe out Israel", when that was a mistranslation by an Israeli newspaper none of the US media cared to verify because of their pro-Zionist stance and hatred of Muslim world elements that stand up for themselves, rather than kaotaowing like Fareed Zakaria.

Obama made good on his campaign promise to talk with Iran.
