His 35-minute address to the UN General Assembly (full video - ) (full text) was a true barn-burner, forthright and accurate, in stark contrast to the bloviating prevarications & sheer piffle unleashed by Palestine Authority President Mahmoud Abbas's slanderous farce last week. Typically, its first victims are other Muslims, but it spares no one.
He began: "I've come here to expose the brazen lies spoken from this very podium against my country and against the brave soldiers who defend it." He named the enemy and the global nature of the threat: [O]ur hopes and the world's hope for peace are in danger. Christians, Jews, Yazidis, Kurds – no creed, no faith, no ethnic group is beyond its sights.
This is what he said two months ago: A day will soon come when the Muslim will walk everywhere as a master… He proclaims a similar vision of the future: We say this to the West… Tomorrow our nation will sit on the throne of the world. Therefore, the question before us is whether militant Islam will have the power to realize its unbridled ambitions.
When it suffers a blow in one place, it's set back in every place.
Because here’s what will happen: Once Iran produces atomic bombs, all the charm and all the smiles will suddenly disappear. It's then that the ayatollahs will show their true face and unleash their aggressive fanaticism on the entire world.
He framed the struggle against Islamism: The fight against militant Islam is indivisible.
This would effectively cement Iran's place as a threshold military nuclear power.
In the future, at a time of its choosing, Iran, the world’s most dangerous state in the world's most dangerous region, would obtain the world’s most dangerous weapons.
