Ahmadinejad: UN Racism Conference Part 3

[Statement by the Islamic Republic of Iran as delivered (unofficial transcript)]

Ladies and gentlemen, look at the Security Council which is the legacy of World War I and II. Based on what logic have they been given the right to veto? With which human and divine value is this logic compatible? Justice, equality in the eye of law and human dignity or discrimination, injustice, violation of human rights and belittling the majority of nations and countries? This Council is the most supreme decision-making centre for maintaining peace and security in the world.

Tyranny is not synonymous with justice, nor is majority rule. Both minorities and majorities can perpetrate injustice. The great powers were jealous of each other, seeking to prevent the UN from being used by their rivals as an instrument of exploitation. Democracy is two wolves and one sheep voting on the dinner menu.

When there is legal discrimination and the law-making centre is a source of bullying and force instead of justice and fairness, how can one expect to achieve justice and peace? Seeking power and selfishness is the source of racism, discrimination, aggression and tyranny. Today many racists condemn racism in their slogans and speeches but when some powerful countries give themselves the right to make decisions for other countries, using their discretion, and based on their own interests, they can easily trample on all rules and human values. As they have already proven.

This paragraph describes Islam, which seeks to dominate the entire world by force. The Iranian theocrats seek to dominate Islam, and with it, the world. President Ahmadinejad seems to assume that we are unaware of or too indolent to read certain Islamic texts.

These topics in Ibn Kathir’s Tafsir display prime examples of Islamic supremacism & triumphalism. Islam will prevail, conquering and dominating the world; that is good news for Islam. In the Orwellian lexicon of Islam, conquest & domination are peace & justice.
