United Nations- Irani President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is famous for his less than discrete remarks on national television and other kinds of interviews. Although he was previously warned by the UN Secretary General against making any compromising or offending remarks, he defied all warnings and dared to say that Israelis had no historical roots in the Middle East and that the existence of the Jewish state was merely temporary. Not only that but he responded to Bibi Netanyahu’s remarks about Israel willing to take action against Tehran (which he made earlier this year) by calling all western leaders who hold affiliation with the State of Israel handmaidens of the Devil.
With Tehran so close to becoming a nuclear power, these kinds of threats hold serious danger for all of Iran’s official enemies such as Israel and The US. Ahmadinejad claims that his desire to remove Israel from the Middle East is because they hold no historical roots in that part of the world. Although he is nine months away from stepping down from power, the UN fears he will utilize this time to speed up the production of nuclear weapons and follow through with his promise of eradicating the State of Israel from the Middle Eastern map.
The United States secretaries in The UN believe that Ahmadinejad dared to make such remarks due to the fact the Israel was so under represented during that session, because of the Jewish holiday Yom Kippur. The results to his ill language and multiple threats to the international community is that a lot of secretaries decided to sit out the following sessions, because they did not wish to hear the absurdities Ahmadinejad had to say.
