What’s the difference between a meeting of the General Assembly of the United Nations, and a meeting of Occupy Wall Street? Indoor toilets.

That’s what we learned this week when Iranian president and genocidal Islamist Mahmoud Ahmadinejad visited New York. The fact that thugs like Ahmadinejad can visit America’s largest city – a city they’d love to see in flames – without being arrested for war crimes defies logic. But what defies common decency is the fact that while Ahmadinejad addressed a high-level U.N. meeting on promoting the rule of law, the American envoys sat respectfully and listened.

What did they hear? The usual litany of anti-Semitic bull that Ahmadinejad regularly includes in his Mother’s Day greetings. He said that Israel should be “eliminated.” He said, “Fundamentally we do not take seriously the threats of the Zionists. We have all the defensive means at our disposal and are ready to defend ourselves.” He claimed that the Jews “have no roots there in history,” referring to Israel. “We do believe that they have found themselves at a dead end and they are seeking new adventures in order to escape this dead end. Iran will not be damaged with foreign bombs.”

The White House promptly condemned Ahmadinejad’s words. After refusing to walk out on them, of course. Ahmadinejad will speak again on Wednesday. At that speech, the US envoys are expected to walk out. But not before having granted him the legitimacy of staying the first time.

    OWS and Imalittleteapot's co-religionists are President Stinky's (aka BO) prime constituency.
    They don't call BO stinky for nothing. BO IS stinky.

    • MotherGoose

      The communist hand in the muslim glove..

    • zionit

      BO is part of the smell of the 'World Turned Upside Down'. And it smells bad. Unfortunately too many Westerners olfactory sensors have gotten used to the smell of crap – seemingly to the point of liking it. Read Melanie Phillips article – she can tell the difference between incense and insensible:

        I love Melanie Phillips. Thanks for the URL to remind me to check up on her.

    Democrats since Carter have made antisemitism acceptable and helped it to come out in the open. Obama has accelerated the process so that today in the West (and nearly everywhere in the world) it has become fashionable to talk openly about elimination of Israel and talk about Jews in some of the vilest terms not heard since Nazi Germany. I guarantee you, after he meets Morsi, Obama will kick Israel once again and his ratings will shoot up. After Jews, it'll be the turn of Christians. You guys have seen nothing yet.

    • SCREW SOCIALISM

      Tell the Islamofascists and its supporters like Dhimmi Carter (Worst US President EVER) that the future of the Hajj, the pilgrimage to Mecca, depends on the actions of Jihadis.

      If the Jihadis do the unthinkable, Mecca WILL BE WIPED OFF THE MAPj, in retaliation, for starters.

  • Omar

    Wow. The fact that Ahmadinejad is reaching out to the OWS protesters exposes the truth about the unholy alliance between the radical left and the Islamists in the Middle East. The Occupy movement has gone too far trying to ally themselves with the Iranian regime. Once again that's the disturbing alliance between the communist Occupy Wall Street and the Islamist regime in Iran. The American government and the American people must confront and defeat the extremist unholy alliance of the radical left and the Islamists. We need to protect our democracy from extremism.

  • Schlomotion

    All I garnered from this article is that Ben Shapiro hates Iran and watches The View.

    • SCREW SOCIALISM

      Shariamotion,

      Happy Eternal Nakba!

    • kafir4life

      I don't think anybody expects you to get more, so your apology isn't necessary.

    • Ghostwriter

      And you hate Jews,so you and A-jad have something in common.

    • Omar

      Schlomotion, can you do us a favor and stop exporting propaganda from the left/Islamists. We don't need to hear any more propaganda from you.

    • reader

      That's because all you know how is to hate the Jews.

  • Danny C

    On the one hand, it may seem as if there is nothing new here. The Left in America have been aligning themselves with the most evil dictators in the world since the 60s (actually much earlier). However what is new here, is the implicit approval of anti-Semitism and anti-Americanism by the President and most of his party. Even Carter portrayed incompetence rather than approval when it came to the revolution in Iran in '78. Even Carter waited until he was out of office before revealing his hatred of the Jews. Obama isn't fully explicit about his feelings towards Jews and Israel, but he doesn't seem to be making much of an effort to hide his feelings, is he? America is at a crossroads–we hear this all the time. Not only are we very close to choosing to become like Greece, in terms of the fiscal decisions we have to make, but we're also very close to choosing to side with evil. Are we going to abandon our only ally in the Middle East? It depends on who is elected in November.

    • objectivefactsmatter

      Agreed. The long-term trends are acutely dangerous. Clinton had his hands in this issue by kissing up to Arafat so openly and making it easy to see "Muslims" as victims, accepting their lies.

  • Readprophecy

    poor american people eating trash from their own government, after the global crisis and american getting more poorer and jobless they still see ahmadinejad as a threat and arguing this trash hole?? you're all exploited by this zion trash and know what.. you all end up nowhere

    • pyeatte

      I think you are deeply disturbed.

    • SCREW SOCIALISM

      Perhaps you prefer eating islamofascist dung. To each his own.

      Great. Another anti-semite leaves his pit to bash Jews.

        i'm not an anti-semite neither an anti-islam, i just following my heart.. theres a biggest problem in the united states but poor people think outside not the inside

    • Omar

      Zionism is not the problem. Islamist jihadism is the problem.

      • Readprophecy

        The biggest problem is yourself who cant solve your own problem your own paradigme sceptism paranoid dogma of zionist politics, thank God there is still people like Oprah in America

        • objectivefactsmatter

          Facts obviously don't matter…to you.

    • objectivefactsmatter

      "you all end up nowhere"

      America's problems got seriously dangerous at precisely the moment some political leaders took Muslim liars seriously. That is what leads to nowhere, trying to appease Muslims and treat Islam as equal or valid when it's simply a pack of lies that lasted nearly 14 centuries too long already.

        So you think US attack Iran and the problem get solve immediately? learn the fact, open your eyes and then look around.. easy to blame other people but its hard to blame yourself and make a change

        • Ahmed Johnson

          The more I read of opinions like yours – the angrier i become.

        • objectivefactsmatter

          "So you think US attack Iran and the problem get solve immediately?"

          Where did anyone say that? And if the answer is no, that is not an argument against attacking Iran. Do you have one?

          "learn the fact"

          The only fact I can see in your statement is that you have no logical point to make.

          "open your eyes and then look around"

          And then?

          "easy to blame other people but its hard to blame yourself and make a change"

          I stopped threatening Israel and terminated my program to develop nuclear weapons weeks ago. How about you? The real change I made is that I stopped holding back my outrage at those who deny global threats. That means I must confront dip$hits who lie about the middle east region, Iran, etc.

          • Readprophecy

            i feel sorry for you because you are easily eaten by those trash.. get a life seriously

  • pyeatte

    If the Islamists and Occupy Communist mobs were the only ones left in a region….they would each insist on ruling the other. Wonder how that competition would end. Would Islam submit to the Communists, or the other way around?

    • SAM000

      I remember that Iranian communist party (TOUDEH) who made alliance with Khomeini were decimated later by Khomeini.
      When Khomeini used them against the people, he forced them to repent and to admit Islamism over communism before being vanished for ever.

  • SAM000

    This kind of alliance between prehistoric mullah's feudalism and anti capitalist left is always an unholy and anti people alliance where the winner is always the darkest powers and the loser is the left and the victim is the people.
    I remember that Iranian communist party (TOUDEH) who made alliance with Khomeini were decimated later by Khomeini.
    When Khomeini used them against the people, he forced them to repent and to admit Islamism over communism before being vanished for ever.

    So, Ahmadinejad who opposes Capitalism is in his historic bed because the Mullahs Feudalism is at least 200 years before industry, the Mullahs consider the people the subjects who should be guided by the Islamism,

    Your American lefts are totally corrupted where they co-voice with an stone aged force.

    The left who opposes the capital concentration admits the stolen multi-billion petrodollars by the Islamists.
    This is the political perversion.

    • Huck Folder

      I call the melding of the SINISTER left and stone-age ISLAM – S I N I S L A M.

  • EthanP

    I believe that this was the first time US diplomats have sat through one of these rants. They can always listen to the tape. IMHO this says more about the Obama adminisration than all Obamas empty promises. He's got Israels back alright. And he's ready to twist the knife!

  • Ghostwriter

    A-jad's rants are nothing new. He sounds like Schlomotion,albeit with a much larger podium to spread his anti-Jewish filth.

    • Omar

      The world needs to make Ahmadinejad a pariah.

  • mlcblog

    I see Slowmo has taken to personal assaults against the authors, more than it used to. Sorry, folks. Slipping over I couldn't help but see…was drawn by Ben Shapiro's name.

  • Nakba1948

    Ahmadinejad is an extremist moron. But it doesn't follow that his ideology coincides with that of the Occupy movement, just because some in that movement similarly seek justice for the Palestinian people and abhor Israeli apartheid. After all, it doesn't follow that because Hitler liked dogs and because Obama likes dogs, that Obama is therefore the reincarnation of Hitler. Only a delusional neocon would subscribe to that logic. Oh, wait…

    • Omar

      Nakba1948, there is no Israeli "apartheid", period. Israel is a tolerant, democratic country, unlike Hamas and the Palestinian Authority. Hamas is allied with the Islamist regime in Iran.

    • SAM000

      Nakba;
      There is a time for war, there is a time for peace.
      Now, there is a time for peace and negotiations.
      But, between the Palestinians and Israelis there is the unholy hands of the Iranian Mullahs, HAMAS is the hands of the Iranian Mullahs.
      The Middle EAST problem is no longer Israel / Palestinian problem.
      US ADMINISTRATION is cheating by focusing the ME. problem on ISRAEL / Palestinian.
      The real problem is the Mullahs who govern Iran.
      Without the Mullahs, HAMAS will no longer be feed, Hamas was always funded by Iran and backed by Syria, the political power of HAMAS will be vanished and the Palestinians will negotiate with Israel one to one.

    • UCSPanther

      I wager you secretly yell "Heil Ahmadinejad!"

    • objectivefactsmatter

      "But it doesn't follow that his ideology coincides with that of the Occupy movement, just because some in that movement similarly seek justice for the Palestinian people"

      Not entirely, but the fact that scumbags will join with such an evil tyrant shows how distorted their worldview must be considering they also claim to be loyal Americans.

      " and abhor Israeli apartheid"

      What a load of garbage that phrase is. Apartheid? The Palestinians have been waging unrelenting Jihad for so many decades and then to turn on Israel as if its defense of its nation and people is racist purely on the basis of that defense? Repeating such nonsense is the epitome of stupidity and delusion.

    • objectivefactsmatter

      "After all, it doesn't follow that because Hitler liked dogs and because Obama likes dogs, that Obama is therefore the reincarnation of Hitler."

      Funny, I haven't heard a single person ever present any such theory. What in the hell are you talking about? What am I doing asking you for clarity? It's beyond you.

      "Only a delusional…"

      The irony gets thicker with each message.

      "…neocon would subscribe to that logic. Oh, wait… "

      But it is logic only employed by you. Are you a neocon?

    • Ghostwriter

      Deep down,you approve of A-jad,don't you? You certainly say it often enough.

  • S.N. Hebbar

    The US Govt had denied Visa to Mr. Narendra Modi, Chief Minister of Gujarat State, India because he unfortunately happened to be in power in the State when Hindu-Muslim riots broke out in the state after Muslims burnt alive 59 sleeping Hindus in a train in February 2002. It is surprising that Ahmedinajad is allowed to visit US outside UN. Is it because he is a Muslim and Modi is a Hindu?

    • objectivefactsmatter

      "Is it because he is a Muslim(?)"

      Yes.

      • amused

        ok kids , it's because Modi is not a head of State and Ahmahdinejab is , so stop swapping spit and stick to facts. btw , ofm , bad choice of screen names .

  • objectivefactsmatter

    "angry of what?? because im saying the truth??"

    LOL! As if you are even capable of it!

  • SAM000

    The reason why the current US Administration appeases the Mullahs of Iran is that US hopes to extract some moderate elements from the Mullahs group who occupy Iran.

    USA sees that the Mullahs are hated by the Iranians.
    USA knows that the Mullahs will not survive without USA help.
    That's why USA tries to build an alternative to the Mullahs regime.

    But the Miscalculation of USA is that the MONSTER NEVER BEAR THE DOVE.

    • JoJoJams

      If what you said is true, then why didn't they help the student green party when they had a small revolt a few years back? We left them to die…..

      • SAM000

        Because the student Green party as they were claiming became more RADICAL after the first days DEATHS.
        Do you remember NEDA?
        the second day, the students were chanting << DEATH TO ISLAMIC REGIME of the MULLAHS>>.

        The STUDENT GREEN PARTY was no longer GREEN, they wanted the head of the REGIME, this is what USA don't like, specially OBAMA don't like it.

        Read my post below, you will be amazed.
