1. it points to really just one thing...
Micha   (08.23.07)
The UN is truly becoming less and less necessary in the world. It is obviously controlled by arab member states, a la moslem states and this is just a complete disgusting travesty. Totally incomprehensible, almost laughable if it weren't so damn serious. Libya is the head???? Will Malaysia be on the committee as well? Saudi Arabia? Iran? Qatar? UAE? Which one of these racist countries will be there? Which one of these sexist countries will be there? Which one of these countries that traffics in human slaves will be there? Just plain disgusting. EOS.
2. Iran on Anti racism committee in UN
Carolyn   (08.23.07)
What si the UN membership totally stupid or just in denial of the fact that Iran is one of the biggest racist countries in the world, they openly express a desire to wipe Israel off the map, deny the Holocaust ever happened and they are allowed on this committee? The UN is becomming more irrevelant each day and needs to be overhauled or dismantled! YOU don't put racist holocaust denying countries on such a committee! You put groups and countries that are not racist,led by people like the Dali Lama who preach peace andcoexistance!
3. Double talk of Iran
Nora ,   Tel Aviv   (08.23.07)
Iran might say that it loves Jews, but only Israelis it hates. Ahmadinejad: You want proof? Let me eliminate Israel and you will see how much I will love Jews.
4. UN
rj ,   ramat gan   (08.23.07)
the full title should be the United NATIONS OF iSLAM AND african interest around the globe...all the un does is appease moslems and the expense of Jews and Christians..
5. UN is a big joke and a waste.
Israeli Arsi   (08.23.07)
What do they do? They waste tremendous amounts of paper and constantly harass Israel and get absolutely nothing done. If they chose Iran to run the anti racism committee this goes to show that the UN is bunch of anti-Semite pigs. Iran has called for Israel's destruction----you're telling me that that fanatical country is fit to run such a committee----what a JOKE!
David Powell ,   Everett, Wa. USA   (08.23.07)
The UN should be ignored as ligitimate organization for "peace making" Recognizeing Iran on the anti-racism commission is like appointing a wolf to guard the chicken coop.
7. US should Cut Funding UN
Semsem ,   New York, USA   (08.23.07)
The US should stop funding the UN.
8. 'Iran no top spot' - but Libya does. STILL RIDICULOUS
student ,   US   (08.23.07)
Such appalling double standards should be protested world wide.
9. just par for the course
mike ,   israel (formerly usa   (08.23.07)
with the UN, would it be any other way?
10. The UN Relegated To A Cesspool Where It Belongs!
Adina Kutnicki ,   US   (08.23.07)
Every day, and in EVERY forum, Israel's leaders must debunk the veneer of the UN/EU as honest brokers. The problem is that Peres is deep into the EU/UN pockets, and OLmert & gang are no better. It will be left up to all other Jewish patriots to scream the alarm. The UN is NOT part of the civilized world. It is now the United Nations Of Dictators, Thugs and their Appeasers. The next time the UN tries to broker a 'ceasefire', all sane Israeli leaders should tell them to GO TO HELL!
11. Is this for real???
DR ,   Florida, USA   (08.23.07)
What the hell is wrong with the world???
12. I want to un-UN the world!
enzo ,   london,uk   (08.23.07)
The UN is useless and dangerous...!
13. Is it a joke? UN is not anymore
Johnny ,   Stockholm, Sweden   (08.24.07)
This pretty much is the complete end of the UN.
14. Yeah, and Syria is the Anti-terrorist for the UN
Josh   (08.24.07)
Be forewarned about the US and the UN putting their arm around you. Sincerity? How can these programs be administered with any sincerity?
15. What?! That's almost as crazy as having Israel on it.
Khalid ,   Gaza City   (08.24.07)
16. What's next?
Howard ,   USA   (08.24.07)
Israel chairs the Department of World Islamic Affairs and promises a Koran in every house in Israel.
17. Fox guarding the chickens?
Ima Bleever ,   Anytown USA   (08.24.07)
The UN is just another incarnation of the failed League of Nations also foolishly started by my country. It and NATO are deadly serious but are a joke. If Bin Laden had bombed the IRS (our tax collectors) and the UN, he'd be a national hero here. But hey, he was blinded by hatred for Jews. It happens. Whatcha gonna do? Iran = Persia = inventors of every pagan religion on the face of the earth. They still have the idols all over their lovely little country. Yet somehow, they like to shout how they are the keepers of the TRUE faith. Arabs are fond of doing this, too. Yet neither they nor their Persian counterparts can figure out where Muhammed hid his copy of the Ten Commandments that the entire world knows God gave humanity. Go figure. The UN permitting Hebrew-hating Ahma-dinner-jacket to preach about racism shouldn't surprise me since the UN are the idiots who appointed mass murderer Mohamar Khaddafi of Lybia as the moral watchdog of the UN. But it still shocked me to the core. Disband the UN. Send NATO home. Let cowards police their own countries or become slaves. And who is it who owns slaves? Oh yeah, the MUSLIMS. Silly me.
18. racism
ephraim ,   diaspora   (08.24.07)
19. You mean RACIST committee. Nazis would be happy.
David ,   Boston, USA   (08.24.07)
Well, just another example of why the UN needs to go away. UN out of US. US out of UN.
20. talk about putting the fox in charge of the chickens coup
yahn goodey   (08.24.07)
this is not G-Ds world-He temporarily lets satan appoint rebels to run things in this insane asylum called earth
21. The UN deserves,,,
Maurice ,   Montreal, Canada   (08.24.07) credibility or respect anymore. It has become the tool of dictatorships and racist/islamist countries against the free world! I do not understand why countries like the US are still funding this garbage of an organizaton!
22. Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahah!
23. The UN is a communist front organization with a goal of
Rivkah   (08.24.07)
world governance. The UN Charter is word for word the constitution of the old Soviet Union and the American traitor who signed America on board such a scam was Algier Hiss who is not even listed as a UN Secretary General, although he was the first. Iran and a lot of other countries are being duped into a communist takeover of the world, slow as molasses to be sure. Soviet Premier Nikita Kruschev said "We will bury you" and predicted it would take generations to accomplish that. It is time for nations to withdraw from the UN which bites even the hand that feeds it the most, America.
24. the worhless of the un!
T.I ,   Israel   (08.24.07)
The hypocrisy of the Un is amazing, Iran and Libya have a key position on Human rights affairs, these countries are the last nation who know the personal value of it. I'm genuinely thinking we and Usa should remove ours an envoy, this institution is pointless, blind and continuing the anti-semitic route which begun before world war 2. The Un has no capability to enforce anything, all the time, we hear clues that establishing my country was a mistake, and we are the only reason for the eruption of Islamofascism, we must quit as soon as possible, we already ashamed ourselves enough. The gentiles won't respect us, as long as we illusion them and ourselves.
25. Whats next? Putting Japan in a committee to save the whales?
Tahl ,   Israel   (08.24.07)
The UN has long since become nothing but a silly joke.
26. Sheer Idiotism ! Stop funding the U.N !!!
Sharon ,   Israel   (08.24.07)
Iran with its devilish president is the embodiment of racism and evil on Earth.IT HAS NEVER CEASED TO CALL FOR THE DESTRUCTION OF THE STATE ISRAEL !instead of expelling Iran out of the U. N, THE U.N have cosen the most ruthless enemy of humanioty to preside over the committee against racism ! Sheer diotism !
27. Obviously untrue
Danny   (08.24.07)
Must be Zionist lies to discredit the UN. Next thing they'll be telling us Zimbabwe is head of the commission on sustainable economic development and Libya was head of the UN Human rights comission and Sudan, Zimbabwe, Saudi, Egypt and China are on the current comission!!! Oh wait, they are....
28. mind boggling

29. UN and racism
Michel ,   paris   (08.24.07)
Cleary the time has come to stop this: no more funding to them and create inmediately a new and serious international forum without this people.
30. To quote his exact words in farsi:
annie ,   syria   (08.24.07)
THE ACTUAL QUOTE: So what did Ahmadinejad actually say ? "The Imam said this regime occupying Jerusalem must vanish from the page of time". Word by word translation: Imam (Khomeini) ghoft (said) een (this) rezhim-e (regime) ishghalgar-e (occupying) qods (Jerusalem) bayad (must) az safheh-ye ruzgar (from page of time) mahv shavad (vanish from). He speaks of the regime
