Ahmadinejad is #UNWELCOME

Ahmadinejad is #UNWELCOME

We cannot remain silent while a man this evil visits New York and addresses the UN.

by

Once again, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad will address the United Nations General Assembly next week in New York City. New York area-protestors and student activists across the US are mobilizing to send a clear message: Ahmadinejad is #UNWELCOME!

Join the online movement to prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons, and to protect the rights of the Iranian people on Thursday, September 20.

Here are 10 reasons why:

1. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and other regime officials regularly call for the destruction of Israel, a UN member state.

2. The Iranian regime supports the Assad regime that has killed more than 20,000 in the past year.

3. The regime seeks nuclear weapons capabilities, and violates international law in pursuit of them.

4. The Iranian regime executes more people per capita than any other country in the world.

5. The regime rigs elections to maintain power, and violently represses opposition.

6. The regime denies its citizens rights based upon gender, ethnicity, religion, sexuality, and politics.

7. The regime is the single largest supporter of international terrorism.

8. The regime has regularly targeted American military personnel deployed in the Middle East.

9. The regime regularly threatens to close the Strait of Hormuz, thereby threatening the global economy.

10. The regime has institutionalized discrimination in education based upon religious belief, and at some institutions, gender.

We cannot remain silent while a man this evil visits New York and addresses the UN. Can’t be there to protest in person? Visit “New York To Ahmadinejad: You’re #UNWELCOME” to take action ONLINE or in your local community!

PEACE?

I like what Golda Meier said..."When they(the Palestinians) love their children more than they hate us, then there will be peace."

One reason why all above won't work

The Creator uses Iran to show us that the present level of ours are worth distraction and that He has all the means to do it,.Tomorrow is Yom Kippur , so Let give Him all the possible reasons to let us live and to be written in the Book of Life, and see what happens with Iran and others who are nothing but the means of the Creator to make us do what we should and not what we think suits us better, and do not dream that UN, or USA or any other power, BUT the Creator will ever help us, we have our Purpose on this earth and our lives are in the Hands of the Creator ONLY and if we have to do someything about Iran it is to understand that there is no other reason for the Creator to threaten us, but His Mercy to restart us to think clear. This World is the world of Action and we are here to act, so we have to do what we have to do to protect ourselves,but it isn't possible without our cooperation with G-d, but MOST of ALL we MUST follow His Plan for us to become Mamlekhet Kohanim and Go'i Gaddol and as a matter of fact we are still far from both of these levels.aren't we?

Iranian President in New York

I am Jewish all the way back to at least King David. But let's be real. Israel has nuclear weapons, we should admit it, let in the IAEA and join the non-proliferation treaty. Our mandate was given to us in 1948 and those should be the border. Yes, we were attacked, many times...but this needs to end. I have prayed at the Wailing Wall twice I want to again, make peace NOW!!

'48 Border?

I am happy to hear that you have been to the Western (not Wailing) Wall. you should be aware that were Israel to settle, again, for the proposed partition borders or the '49 armistice line, such a visit would not be possible, as it was not between '49 and the liberation in '67.
