Israeli envoy to the United Nations walked out of Ahmadinejad’s address to UN General Assembly this morning. Ron Prosor, top legal aide, left the hall without hearing Iranian leader’s address. The US officials stayed put. They wouldn’t walk out even after Ahmadinejad denied Israel’s existence.

    We made the right decision staying put. Preaching freedom of speech and walking out on the speech of a foreign leader because we don't like what he has to say would not only make us a group of hypocrites but also would be a poor move on the diplomatic front. We are a major world power and today we proved that we have the character and class of one. Just because Israel decided to have a tantrum an walk out doesn't mean that we should have followed suit.

    Take your time, although I think you shall find it a never ending process.
    The United Nations General Assembly has adopted a number of resolutions saying that the strategic relationship with the United States encourages Israel to pursue aggressive and expansionist policies and practices.
    The 9th Emergency Session of the General Assembly was convened at the request of the Security Council when the United States blocked efforts to adopt sanctions against Israel.

    Now when Syria fail to comply with UN resolutions and Russia and or China use their veto, America cries foul, but try getting a resolution passed about Israel and they whip out their veto faster than a rat up a drainpipe!

    If anything, the U.S.; should walk out of supporting Israel and stop giving this racist/terrorist state 3+ billion dollars every year. Obama distancing himself from Israel is the only thing Obama is doing right in my opinion. Israel is no better that Hitler, and it is they would should be disarmed of nuclear weapons.

    lets the other side of the continent take care themselves. Who rules America? We do. Don't let them to mislead you.
  • flrdsgns 2012/09/28 17:11:58
    No, why should we? If Israel wants to have a hissy fit, let them. The United States owes nothing to Israel and should never follow their lead.

  • Lynn 2012/09/27 20:13:38
    Why do we need to follow Israel ? Maybe we should consider the other countrys in the Mid East if you think about it everyone else there has had a problem with Isreal at one time or anoither. If you ask me we should exam Isreal more.

    Amazing how Muslim countries have a problem with a non-Muslim country in their midst.

    Black man moves into a white neighborhood in the South in the 1950's. All his neighbors "have a problem with him". Good reason to examine him more? If all his neighbors have a problem with him then HE must be the creating it, right?

    BTW: I noticed you claim to be gay. I assume you have no problem with how gays are treated in the Arab world. Want to take a guess what Middle Eastern country is the only one to have open Gay Pride parades and laws protecting gays?
  • Lynn fuzzy K... 2012/09/27 20:40:11
    Well let me ask you something lets say we let Israel have a state and it was there country and then they desided they needed more land how do you think we the USA would react to that.
  • fuzzy K... Lynn 2012/09/27 20:47:32
    fuzzy Ken "In G*d We Trust"
    "lets say we let Israel have a state and it was there (sic) country" - ????

    We have no right to let a state exist or not. Do we have a right to "let" Germany or Portugal exist???
    Israel, like Iraq and Jordan was created by the UN. WE do not dictate to the world.

    Please take the time and answer the questions I posed in the preceding post. I would like to hear your opinion.
  • Lynn fuzzy K... 2012/09/27 21:00:32
    I know its israel ok. Look I am just saying who is Israel to dictate to the USA? They asked for unalateral surport. I dont feel that we need to put more of our troops in harms way do you understand that what exactly dose Israel do for the USA ?
  • fuzzy K... Lynn 2012/09/27 21:43:50
    fuzzy Ken "In G*d We Trust"
    Israel does not "dictate" to the US any more than your friends dictate to you or mine to me. .
    If a good friend asks me to back them up then I do so.
    In the past we have walked out on warmongering nut jobs when they spoke at the UN as have many others. It is a sign that we're not going to sit there and listen to them spout their hate. Ahmadinejad was just as nasty to the US as he was towards Israel. Sitting there and listening to his rant did not help anyone except Ahmadinejad.

    Everybody must listen, find out whats going on and then walk out..(where is Lee Harvey when we need him )
  • Romanknite 2012/09/27 19:36:14
    No we should had followed Israel. If we had done that, we would look just as whimpy as them. We are suppose to be the leaders of the world. So we did right by sitting there and hearing what the Iranian President had to say. If Israel wants to show their cowardness to the world then let them.

    If the US wants to keep the ruse going in view of the American people, they should have walked out. There is no doubt that war is inevitable with Iran, not because they have a nuke program (they don't) but because our government is collaborating with the Isreali's, and both are intent on regime change, moreso the US.

    If you want to know why we're threatening them all you have to know is the motive. In short, the US dollar is the world's primary reserve currency. It has this status mostly because ALL oil sales are conducted in US dollars. Iran opened the Iranian Oil Bourse back in 2007 and refuse to take US dollars for their oil, which is absolutely their right. With the Fed printing new money like it's going out of style, it is literally GOING OUT OF STYLE. They are devaluing the dollar every single day, and many of these countries that are holding huge reserves of USD's to buy their oil are waking up to the fact that the Fed's actions are killing the purchasing power of those reserves. Eventually they will dump them but they would need an alternative currency to hold for their oil sales. Enter Iran. So if Iran's practice catches on, it will cause a chain reaction that could destroy the US dollar and consequently the US economy. THAT is why we're threatening Iran.

    We have freedom of speech in the U.S., but that does not mean I must listen to the A-hole or sit in the same room with him. Get the US out of the UN and the UN out of the US. US out of the UN

    We not only should have walked out, Amadinejads should not have been invited, nor should he be invited to speak to ANY College, High School, or any other groups in America. He should be boycotted by everyone.

    The conflict between Iran and Israel is of no concern to the United States of America.
  • Getting... Donald ... 2012/09/27 15:52:28
    If a few nuclear releases occur, it is the planet's concern.
  • Donald ... Getting... 2012/09/27 16:32:30

    Only one country has been crazy enough to actually use nuclear weapons.

    Regarding Iran, they lack the means to either drop a bomb on or launch a missile toward the United States of America.

    Iran could launch a nuclear attack against Israel. Israel is also a nuclear power.

    Once again, the U.S. should not allow itself to become entangled in a conflict between Iran and Israel. Their dispute is no concern of ours.
