While U.S. and Israeli delegations skipped Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s speech at the United Nations on Wednesday, British officials did attend, and while they were instructed to leave by Prime Minister David Cameron if anything offensive was said by Ahmadinejad, the 3-person British team chose not to leave.

During his speech, the Iranian leader referred to Israelis as “uncivilized Zionists” and questioned the killing of Osama Bin Laden, saying that “an independent fact-finding team” should have been established to bring him to justice.

Cameron and British Foreign Minister William Hague were in New York while Ahmadinejad took the podium at the UN, however they did not attend the speech.

    Must be Anglican, following church doctrine.

  • So why did the British officials at the UN not leave when Mahmoud Ahmadinejad took the podium and made his odious address to the ‘UNITED NATIONS’I don’t trust any of the Europeans including the United Kingdom when it comes to the security of the ‘State of Israel’ they are all snakes in the grass when it comes to the crunch as far as the Jews and Israel is concerned. These people still haven’t learned the lessons of the ‘Shoah’ If there would have been a Jewish State at the time of ‘HITLER’S NAZI GERMANY’ many more Jews would have been saved. I still maintain to this day that Hitler did Europe’s dirty work, because if the free world at that time would have had any
    ‘Derech Eretz’ they would have been willing to accept many many more Jews than the few they grudgingly accepted.


    Why should anyone be surprised at the British insubordination. After all, they have to return to Londonstan.

  • Is anyone surprised? When the British left Palestine in 1947 the gave all their weapons to the Arabs…enough said..
