It is astounding, but not surprising, that an emissary of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad would accuse the UN and the U.S., Britain and France of creating a crisis. There would be no draft resolution, and no crisis, were it not for the constant saber-rattling and genocidal threats coming from the Thug-In-Chief and his minions. As I explained in The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (and the Crusades), this is a phenomenon that goes back a millennium: the mujahedin never display any sense of responsibility for their own actions. After hundreds of years of jihad conquest of Christian lands and the destruction of Christian sites all over the Holy Land, Muslim writers reacted to the Crusades as if they were a completely gratuitous and unprovoked attack by the “Franks.”
Of course, it worked: most people today still think of the Crusades in that way, and that may be why this has become a constant element of the jihadist playbook. Javad Zarif cannot and will not ever acknowledge the Iranian bellicosity that has led the utterly supine and dhimmi UN even to consider such a resolution — for him and his fellow mujahedin, any Western or UN action against Iran will be an unwarranted attack on a peaceful state. And again, the worldwide media will happily jump on board and do all they can to abet this impression. “Iran’s U.N. Envoy Criticizes Resolution,” from AP, with thanks to JE:
UNITED NATIONS – Iran’s top U.N. envoy criticized a proposed resolution on its nuclear program that carried a threat of further action which could include sanctions, charging Thursday that it’s aimed at provoking confrontation rather than resolving the dispute.
Ambassador Javad Zarif said it was regrettable the United States, Britain and France were taking a confrontational approach because “there are a multitude of possibilities for finding a peaceful resolution.”
“If anything, the draft indicates the intention of those who drafted it to create a crisis where a crisis is not needed, to create an atmosphere of tension which our region does not need, and which can be avoided simply by allowing serious, reasonable, sober discussion,” he said.
