As the delegate of the U.S just pointed out, China some things you are speaking of and criticizing in your posts don’t seem to correlate with the actual acts and beliefs of CHINA’S GOVERNMENT as opposed to personal opinion...
Is the delegate aware of the military, commercial, and strategic cooperation that goes on between China and Israel?
And that China has purchased about $4 billion worth of arms from Israel? because if it were the case that Israel’s government acts with “lack of ethics” (as China stated) then China would supporting our ‘immoralities’. The delegate of Israel doesn’t understand where China’s heavy attacks are coming from when relations between China and Israel have been kept cordial for 20 years now.
And yes, as you have stated it’s not a difference in religion that sets off the discord but the fact that our existence has never been accepted… the Palestinians do not want the nation of Israel next to theirs, they just don’t want one at all. How is that not supposed to inflict fear on us? How can we be asked to not feel threatened if we get deceitfully bombarded from left to right, up and down, from the past till today,
To answer China and Iran’s question here’s why my nation feels threatened and the need to be on a defensive mentality:

In the past: We were attacked on the eve of our creation, we lost 6 million people to the holocaust (which President Ahmedinejad denies), not the mention the eternal persecution from our Arab neighbors that never wanted us to be.
To the East: Iran’s verbal threats to destroy Israel and advancing nuclear project (that as much as the Delegate of Iran negates is clearly not simply for peaceful purposes or else you wouldn’t have the sanctions you suffer, the 5 powers debating whether more sanctions are necessary to halt it, and the security council requesting that you end it.)
To the North: Hezbollah, the Lebanese organization vowing to also destroy Israel now with 30,000 to 40,000 Russian-made rockets, supplied by Syria and Iran
To the South: Hamas, the Islamist movement that controls the Gaza strip who’s charter also promises to destroy Israel and their arsenal also stocked with Russian made, Iranian-financed rockets
To the West: Are gradually reducing support for Israel nonsensically in regard to the defense roles we have been forced to take

And the delegates still ask why we feel threatened? How many times did I use the terms “destroy Israel” in this post? If the delegates stopped antagonizing Israel and looked at our history from our side as well the delegates would see the justification in our acts.

Seriously delegates? China expected a lot more from the other delegates’ comprehensive skills, in fact, we are the Security Council! Here is a more "easy to understand" post for those who are having difficulty.

First the delegate would like to clarify some obvious points, which it didn't before because, well, they're obvious:
1. CHINA SIGNED THE NPT, RESPECT THE NPT AND WANTS ALL MEMBER STATES TO JOIN AND RESPECT IT TOO!
2. CHINA RESPECTS THE UN AND THE UN RESOLUTION ABOVE ALL. (It doesn't mean China fully agree with all of them, but it still respect it)

Delegate of the United States, the Chinese government doesn't believe that sanction are the solution for this problem or any other. In fact, the Chinese government opts for peaceful and friendly approaches like the Six-Party talks, which happen in Beijing, regarding the Korean Peninsula. However, as said in point 2, it will always respect UN resolutions, including resolutions 1737 and 1718 that regard sanctions. The sanction imposed in, for example, Cuba have shown to fail, fail and fail over time and yet, hundreds of people die every year due to lack of medicine imports from the US. China knows the issue in Cuba doesn't regard nuclear anything, however its shows the most evident impacts of sanction in the country: civilians’ deaths and less affective economical growth.

Since some delegates lack understanding in China's political views, specially in this issue, here is a RECENT news that can clarify: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/09/20/us-presses-china-sanctions-iran-north-korea_n_732458.html (20 Sept, 2010) Here's a highlight: "China maintains strong ties with both Iran and North Korea and has been resistant to sanctions on either."

Delegate of Israel, China believes that we, as in all Member States, are all mature enough to know that we won't always agree on everything. China also believes that good ties between countries are necessary for a healthy and safe globe. You see, delegate, China hold good ties with Israel, North Korea and Iran (all opting for nuclear weapons) but it doesn't mean China will agree with every thing they believe in. As explained in obvious point #1 China signed the NPT and respects it. Despite all ties with Israel, China won’t stand by its nuclear program and won't let what happened between Israel and apartheid South Africa happen in present history. There is lack of ethics in Israel's nuclear program and immorality too, and in any other government who threats the international community by choosing a unsafe nuclear path. Remember what happened in Kazakhstan when it became independent from the Soviets... They gave ALL their nuclear weapons away because they opted for peace. Yes, obviously, China respect Israel and have healthy ties but it won't stand by Israel's nuclear program especially when they choose to spread it to other countries.

Israel feels threaten by the Arab nations? Then count on China to help solve this issue or misunderstanding through diplomatic talks. But its not fair for Israel to threat the WHOLE world because it feels threaten by the Arab nations.

When will all of your nations admit it? Sanctions are NOT the way out of a 'crisis'. Furthermore, what is going on in Iran is NOT what all seem to regard as. Delegate of the USA, if our country was truly trying to develop nuclear weapons you would have already invaded us in the pretense of finding the nukes (and in the process, stealing our gas and oil).
Even your President Obama has concede that point in his remarks (given in June 9, 2010) on the new sanctions against Iran. He said – "We know that the Iranian government will not change its behavior overnight," he said, "but today's (U.N.) vote demonstrates the growing costs that will come with Iranian intransigence."
What intransigence? How dare Obama accuse our country of intransigence as the War on Terror still rolls on, completing its 9th year?
When CBS News asked the White House to name an example or two of nations that changed major policies as a result of sanctions, an official cited South Africa, which ended apartheid, and Libya, which abandoned its program to produce weapons of mass destruction. BUT THE CHANGES IN THOSE NATIONS WERE A RESULT OF INTERNAL POLITICS. How can the White House refuse to comprehend this? International sanctions are a failure. A great example is Cuba --- no country illustrates the failure of sanctions more than this one. The US embargo has been in effect since 1960!! Here's what Fred Bergsten, a former US official and expert on sanctions has to say – "Our conclusion is that the Cuban sanctions have been a total failure," He stills stands by that assessment. Bergsten says sanctions can occasionally get a country to give in on a minor policy matter. But he says the historical record shows it's rare that sanctions will ever compel a strong nation to alter a high-priority program.
Iranian leaders like Nobel Laureate Shirin Ebadi and Akbar Ganji tell us that sanctions will only hurt the people of Iran. Opposition candidate Mir Hossein Mousavi has denounced sanctions, saying that anyone who supports his “Green” movement should also oppose additional sanctions. According to Mousavi, “Sanctions would not actually act against the government — rather, they would only inflict statesmen. We are opposed to any types of sanctions against our nation. This is what living the Green Path means.”

Setareh Sadeqi, a 24 year old English teacher mirrors what Iran is, as of candor value. "We love the Jewish people; we have lots of Jewish friends and we respect them, but not the government," she says. I
On the criticism on Iran's nuclear program, she states that Iran develops nuclear energy for peaceful programs and that it should not be mistaken for nuclear weapons.

Here's the deal, delegate of Israel – it is seemingly unjust how you regard your situation.
You come into a land that is ALREADY owned, declare that you suffered 6 million losses (poor you, while Russians suffered 20 million), take over the space that is holy to SEVERAL others religions and nations, sit down, implant a theocracy regime that puts the Torah above constitutional law, expel the true natives (as Americans have committed genocides against their own Native Americans), arm yourself to the teeth with international money (when it could have been used to secure peace, not arms), get nuclear weaponry for your country, have the surreal potence of the United States stand by EVERY wrong decision of yours, trucidate the arabs with your arrogance and prejudice, and then you come to the Security Council and declare that YOU feel threatened?

Please.

Don't forget to finish your research, Val. It's important to stick to the facts, since China IS, in fact, in favor of Iran sanctioning.

So tell the delegate of China, when in the history of the world China supported the sanction on Iran?

Before anything, the delegation of the United States has a right for correction.

"A headline in some copies on Tuesday about China’s position on possible sanctions against Iran if it does not curb its nuclear program overstated a promise that President Hu Jintao of China made to President Obama in a meeting in Washington on Monday. As the article noted, Mr. Hu said that his country would join negotiations over the sanctions. He did not say that China supports such sanctions."
___
The five permanent members of the security council, among others, are willing so form diplomatic negotiations, as Mr Obama said:

“This day was not inevitable,” he said. “We made clear from the beginning of my administration that the United States was prepared to pursue diplomatic solutions,” arguing that the Iranian leadership had refused to engage. "

‘Poor me? The Russians suffered 20 million?’ just the sensitivity of this comment shows the irrational mentality of your regime... the very same one that denies homosexuality, the holocaust, and our nation. Yes, Israel still feels threatened, even more so with the way the delegate regards our situation... it seems as though Iran has forgotten to mention all the times Israel has offered to return parts of the territory, the most common response we get from the Arabs are the 3 no’s, no negotiation, no peace, and no recognition. It seemed as though each time we offered a concession and the more we gave, the more we would receive horrific attacks…Iran, and what are we supposed to do? the delegate is sure Iran would retaliate and take measures to insure the security of its people as well. But Israel is always willing to give up pieces of its land in exchange for peace, yes delegates because this is what the Israelis have never been able to witness- peace. But Palestine is not willing to compromise… like Yasser Arafat (former PLO leader) said to a reporter “go to hell” when asked about Eduh Barak’s proposed two state solution. It has come to a point where Israel independently decided to withdraw from Gaza and parts of the west bank (back in 2005) as a step for peace and we received no different treatment from the Palestinians. So would the delegate tell me how is a country not to live in fear when no matter how much it gives up- it still remains terrorized (delegate the most precious thing to the Palestinians is land… and not even pieces of it to they accept in exchange for peace)
Iran, it is thanks to the sanctions and international resistance that took part during the apartheid in South Africa that alleviated it… these outside interventions is what fueled the internal politics to change. What other “internal” occurrence would have lead the government to change? the protests? Israel doesn’t think so

PostSubject: israel-palestine   Wed Oct 13, 2010 6:44 pm

The delegate of Israel states that all the Palestinians care about is land, but isn't that the same reason why Israel has failed to make peace. Pakistan has stated it would not recognize Israel until a Palestine State was established, with Jerusalem as the capital. This is all a battle over land, is it not?
The 'irrational regime' the delegate of Israel states that Iran has is the same as Israel's. Just a discrimination of other peoples and a greed for land that would encourage Israel to commit such vicious crimes against humanity such as in 2006, when Israeli leader Avigdor Lieberman urged Israel's military to use its air force to "erase" a jail complex, and to topple its structures onto the Palestinian prisoners trapped inside. The Palestinian prisoners were forced to strip to their underwear in front of cameras. And partial nudity is considered a deep shame in Arab cultures, so these men were stripped of their clothing, their freedom, and their humanity during the festival of Purim, Judaism's barbaric celebration of eternal vengeance. Where is Israel's sensitivity? Israel can no longer play the victim when it is committing such hideous attacks against thousands of innocent Palestinians.

The delegate stated, "But Israel is always willing to give up pieces of its land in exchange for peace, yes delegates because this is what the Israelis have never been able to witness- peace. But Palestine is not willing to compromise." Does the delegate really believe in peace when in just May of 2010, nine pro-Palestinian activists were killed in an Israeli raid.


Think about both sides, delegate, and what Israel could have done, and still could do differently to change this disgusting situation.

Implementation of the NPT safeguards agreement and relevant provisions of Security Council resolutions 1737 (2006), 1747 (2007), 1803 (2008) and 1835 (2008) in the Islamic Republic of Iran
Resolution adopted by the Board of Governors on 27 November 2009
In operative clause d, this is stated (verbatim):

(d) Reaffirming the inalienable rights of all the parties to the Non-Proliferation Treaty to develop research, production and use of nuclear energy for peaceful purposes in accordance with Article IV of the NPT,

On what basis do you claim our nuclear program is not peaceful? So far, the only arguments that this delegate has heard refer to a speech by President Ahmadinejad in which the translator MISTRANSLATED from Persian to English and got pieces of the conversation to string the infamous FALSE phrase that we’d like “Israel wiped off the map”. This has been proven by innumerous sources. Check google, delegates, before sanctioning a country and hurting our civilians and our SOVEREIGN state for your own good.

PostSubject: On the question of Non-Compliance   Mon Oct 18, 2010 8:50 pm

To prove that further sanctions are definitely not a wise measure, this delegate would like to inform all of the Member States that in a letter dated 30 June 2010, Iran informed the Agency that it intended to start feeding LEU into the interconnected Cascades 1 and 6 and requested the Agency to rearrange the seals to allow Iran to operate the two cascades as planned. The Agency did so on 3 July 2010. On 17 July 2010, Iran informed the Agency that the feeding of Cascade 6 with the tails from Cascade 1 had started on 13 July 2010. Iran has estimated that, between 9 February 2010 and 20 August 2010, a total of approximately 310 kg of UF6 enriched at FEP was fed into Cascade 1 and that 22 kg of UF6 enriched up to 20% U-235 was produced. The UF6 produced is being periodically withdrawn by Iran from Cascade 1 and loaded into a cylinder with a capacity of about 25 kg of UF6. This material is under containment and surveillance. Iran has stated that, once the cylinder is full, it will homogenize the UF6 contained within, after which the Agency will sample the material for destructive analysis.
As of 7 April 2010, the results of the environmental samples taken at PFEP indicate that the maximum enrichment level in the DIQ had not been exceeded at that plant. AND, even though some have claimed that Qom Fuel Enrichment Plant had not been communicated to the IAEA, In September 2009, Iran informed the Agency that it was constructing the Fordow Fuel Enrichment Plant (FFEP), located near the city of Qom. The Agency verified that FFEP was being built, therefore on what basis do you stand for NON-COMPLIANCE?

PostSubject: On the question of inspectors   Mon Oct 18, 2010 8:51 pm

Another argument sometimes used against our country is the question of not allowing inspectors to our plants. However, this is MISLEADING. In a letter to the Director General dated 3 June 2010, Iran stated that, henceforth, if confidential information acquired by the Agency as a result of implementing its Safeguards Agreement “leaks, in any way, and/or [is] conveyed to the media; for the first reaction, the designation of the relevant inspector(s) will be withdrawn”. In a letter to the Director General dated 10 June 2010, referring to the “false and wrong statements in paragraph 28” of the Director General’s previous report (GOV/2010/28), Iran informed the Agency that it objected to the designation of two inspectors who had recently conducted inspections in Iran (for they failed to oblige to such requirements). Iran’s Safeguards Agreement does permit it to object to the designation of the Agency. Our country just refused two particular inspectors who did not treat us with full professionalism. All of the “secrecy” is just a matter of caring for our country’s scientists and leaders well being. This is yet another reason against these ridiculous (forgive the term), impartial, and self-interested sanctions on our nation.
And since we are on the topic of ‘secrecy’ in relation to nuclear programs, let us talk about Israel, shall we? The US has vetoed 32 resolutions alone that call for inspection of their program; why do they keep their practice of opacity instead of being open to the world and stating that yes, they have nukes? Our Islamic world feels threatened by such secrecy.

The delegate of Pakistan agrees that there is massive evidence that Iran is peaceful in its nuclear energy, including that it has now agreed to accept an additional protocol to IAEA comprehensive safeguards and to temporarily suspend its uranium enrichment program to reassure the international community about the peaceful intent of its nuclear program.

The delegate of Pakistan would like to reaffirm Iran mentioned that Israel is a great threat. Pakistan itself needs security against the threat of Israel. At least Iran is making an effort to follow the NPT's standards and safeguards, and Iran has no secrecy, like Israel does. Israel has left the world in a blur about its true nuclear 'program'. They have not stated that Israel is using nuclear weapons as a defense, and attacks could come from Israel at any time for any reason at all.

Pakistan there is not massive evidence that Iran’s nuclear program is peaceful- there is massive claim from Iran that it is “peaceful”.
“Making an effort to follow the NPT” says the delegate of Pakistan referring to Iran… delegate you have said it yourself…. Yes Iran has signed it, however it means nothing if Iran has failed to abide to it… before you make the predictable accusation that Israel is being hypocritical because it is questioning these Iranian NPT violations, keep in mind that since Israel is not a part of this treaty which it does not believe in, it does not have to follow the regulations- obviously; now since Iran has signed it, Israel enforces Iran’s respect to it. Iran has no secrecy? Delegate one of the reasons why 4 rounds of sanctions have been imposed in Iran was because of secrecy in the program, because of failure to announce some activities like in the 1990s when Iran failed to report purchasing, processing, and depleting natural uranium from China, they also never reported the actual existence of some facilities. “attacks could come from any reason at all” Pakistan, please enlighten the council with some sort of evidence that could justify this accusation… with some sort of specific suggestion, Israel would be able to understand and reply specifically to this accusation.

Is the delegate of Israel aware that in 2007, the IAEA confirmed that Iran was clean in its nuclear activities. In the document, key parts were that:

Article IV (1): These modalities cover all remaining issues and the Agency [meaning IAEA] confirmed that there are no other remaining issues and ambiguities regarding Iran's past nuclear program and activities.

Article IV (3): The Agency's delegation is of the view that the agreement on the above issues shall further promote the efficiency of the implementation of safeguards in Iran and its ability to conclude the exclusive peaceful nature of the Iran's nuclear activities.

Article IV (4): The Agency has been able to verify the non-diversion of the declared nuclear materials at the enrichment facilities in Iran and has therefore concluded that it remains in peaceful use.

Also, the Director-General of the IAEA has also confirmed in an Profil interview, an Austrian magazine, that it is highly unlikely that Iran would pursue the development of a nuclear weapons program.

So, Iran is clear of all these accusations going around of nuclear weapons. Pakistan has only trust and support for Iran's utilizing peaceful nuclear energy, which is not illegal, so there should be no problem with Iran and nuclear energy.

Also, delegate of Iraq, Israel is not the only country with nuclear weapons. Pakistan is itself trying to enter the NPT as a nuclear state.

Pakistan,
This year, 2010 (not three years ago as the delegate refers to), the IAEA actually reported that Iran has denied its key inspectors access to its nuclear facilities and has refused to address IAEA inquiries about their speeding uranium enrichment. The IAEA also reported Iran processed enough uranium for two nuclear weapons-contrary to what the delegates are claiming. The existence of a secret nuclear facility set up inside an Iranian Revolutionary Guard military base near the city of Qum and the building of another secret facility near Qazvin(120 miles west of Tehran) were other disturbing declarations made regarding Iran’s nuclear on goings- both of in clear violation of Iran’s NPT, UN, and international obligations clearly explaining that Iran interests don’t revolve a “peaceful nuclear program”
Just this past month, sept. 2010 after a few moments that Iran was presented with its fourth round of sanctions by the Security Council, Ahmadinejad, vowed to continue enriching uranium. The vagueness of “highly unlikely” claimed by the Director General of the IAEA in an Austrian magazine seems to be dismissed…"Iran has not sufficiently cooperated with IAEA inspectors, and we are not able to confirm the peaceful nature of Iran's nuclear program," Yukiya Amano (the director General of the IAEA).

Iraq,
please read Israel’s last-last post
“before you make the predictable accusation that Israel is being hypocritical because it is questioning these Iranian NPT violations, keep in mind that since Israel is not a part of this treaty which it does not believe in, it does not have to follow the regulations- obviously; now since Iran has signed it, Israel enforces Iran’s respect to it.”

Israel is holding Iran accountable for their assignation in the treaty which should mean that they believe in it. Israel can’t be held accountable for a document they have not signed- however we can endorse that those who sign it, remain faithful to it.
this is not hypocrisy, for example we don’t all share the same religions however we should encourage that each person follow their own set of beliefs or type of ‘commandment’s’ regardless if you agree with them or not.

the fact Israel has refused to sign a treaty that it later attempts to use against another nation is what the delegate of Iraq was criticizing, the Israeli government refused to sign such a treaty and has reused any kind of inspections. The fact that this is ironic is ridiculous when considered that since its creation, Iran has been under attack by everyone. Israel, Iran is much more a victim in this scenario than the media wishes us to believe, delegate, why is it that Iran is considere extremist while Israel passes articles such as
Quote :
The Israeli government moved Sunday to adopt a controversial loyalty oath that would require Palestinians and other non-Jewish prospective citizens to swear allegiance to Israel as a "Jewish and democratic state." http://articles.latimes.com/2010/oct/11/world/la-fg-1011-israel-loyalty-oath-20101011

This is a clear violation of human rights towards 20% of the population, as non-Arabs are not required to take such an oath. This is institutionalized racism, perhaps Israel should reconsider before any attempt to act as moral paladin and victim actually makes any sense.

Delegate of Iraq, let us keep the debate directed to the specific issue we are addressing. We are not trying to create fights between nations, we are trying to maintain peace. Israel was created as a Jewish State in 1948, and has remained as such until present days. First of all, 'non-Arabs' is something that does not make sense, since Israel is a Hebrew speaking nation. Second, we must not forget the enlightening fact that the Arab world refers to the Arab-speaking countries, therefore n.1 Iran is not Arab, n.2 There are Arabs that are Jews. One thing has nothing to do with the other. Your claim of 'institutionalized racism' is – forgive me the term – ignorant. Racism refers to the belief that the genetic factors which constitute race are a primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race. Therefore, race has nothing to do with what you are mentioning, being that where a person is born isn't directly related to their body's genome. You are talking about ethnic discrimination. Even so, what doesn't show up in the media are the opportunities that Israel gives to all its 'foreigners'.
This, of course, does not mean it is a perfect nation, far from that – it is still a violent nation under the wings of more powerful institutions that threaten the safety of some other countries ... hence this forum and this Security Council's discussion.

Delegate of Iraq, Iran is only bringing this up because we would like to further emphasize the fact that this is not a war, a discussion between religions or quarrels between "rival" nations. We are sovereign states and thus deserve to be treated as so. Please do not come into this discussion again to post false generalized media claims.

Thanks Chair. Using that same article, Dr. Syed Qandil Abbas, Professor of International Relations in International Islamic University said a couple months ago, that the latest IAEA report has confirmed the peaceful nature of Iran’s nuclear program. Abbas added that Iran can use nuclear energy for peaceful means under the NPT, and the IAEA has found no evidence to suggest any violent or hidden actions in Iran's nuclear program. The IAEA should be helping Iran in its nuclear energy quest.

Delegate of Iran,
by saying "we are not trying to create fights between nations, we are trying to maintain peace." you made me wonder if this is really your country's intention. It is known to the international community Iran's wish to have Israel been "wiped off the map" and how Ahmadinejad reffers to Israel as a "disgraceful blot". Both statements caused a huge impact worldwide, and international leaders increased their suspicions about the country.
“Completely and totally unacceptable…I feel a real sense of revulsion at those remarks.”
“Can you imagine a state like that with an attitude like that having a nuclear weapon?”
-Tony Blair
“Tantamount to a crime against humanity.”
"It is inconceivable for a man calling for genocide to be at the head of a member country of the United Nations."
-Shimon Peres

Delegate, it has already been made known that the comment to wipe Israel off the map was a mistranslated.

The quote translated to English: "The Imam said this regime occupying Jerusalem must vanish from the page of time."

Word by word translation: Imam (Khomeini) ghoft (said) een (this) rezhim-e (regime) ishghalgar-e (occupying) qods (Jerusalem) bayad (must) az safheh-ye ruzgar (from page of time) mahv shavad (vanish from)

According to the article, "[Ahmadinejad] said the "Zionist regime" was imposed on the Islamic world as a strategic bridgehead to ensure domination of the region and its assets. Palestine, he insists, is the frontline of the Islamic world's struggle with American hegemony, and its fate will have repercussions for the entire Middle East."

This was all a misunderstanding that has turned into a rumor to which no one looks up the facts.

No delegate, one mistranslated quote doesn’t justify dozens of other threats by president Ahmadinejad, or what is the next affirmative by the delegate going to be… that all of his threats were taken out of context? Because then nothing anyone ever said in the UN could ever be taken seriously since it may or may not have been ‘misunderstood’.

In an interview with the Los Angeles Times, Ahmadinejad stated that "The [Zionist] regime resembles an airplane that has lost its engine and is kind of going down. And no one can help it," he said. “This will benefit everyone.”
How does the delegate interpret this quote? Or any of the ones presented by the delegate of France?

Delegates, you are counting too much on words.
If you'd like some extra enlightenment, read these articles:

http://www.globalcrisisnews.com/military/israel-threatens-attack-on-iran-practices-war-games/id=1640/
http://www.infowars.com/israel-threatens-iran-with-heavy-price/

It is not something we will hide, unlike Israel, that tries to put on the eternal fake ambiguity image – We are not in favor of your Zionist regime. Whatever their right to be a Jew State is, it does not justify them claiming land from the palestinians and not give them anything in return. Israel says they give Palestinians new procedures and offer them opportunities, which is true; but the holy land, the land is THEIRS by right, unlike Israel who claims the land because supposedly 5000 years ago Moshe talked to their God from a burning tree and said so. So, yes, we are against this regime that takes use of this and of superpower protection to humiliate day-by-day the palestinians that work in Israel, that invades a UN flotilla for peace and simply kills people there because they didn't stop, even though they were in INTERNATIONAL waters. We oppose this. This sanguine nation is also the nation that is KNOWN to have nuclear weapons – Mordechai Vanunu himself, a former Israeli nuclear technician who worked at the Dimona site, revealed it.

Here's my question, delegates – why has this Council turned to attack my nation who wants nuclear technology to supply for our increasing demand in energy (everyone knows Iran is a strong energy-prone country), when there is a nation who murders and tortures a-fly that already has non-declared nuclear WEAPONS.

It is absolutely outrageous.
