A Frosty Welcome

Ahmawhackjob is coming to America next week to address the United Notions. Hold on to your hats, kiddies. This promises to be quite entertaining. President Bush is also scheduled to speak to the UN. I wonder what will happen if these two should happen to meet in a hallway somewhere. I envision a scene from “High Noon” with Dubya as Gary Cooper. Do not forsake me, Oh my darlin’ ....

(NY SUN) - September 13, 2006

If the Holocaust-denying, nuclear bomb-building, terrorism-sponsoring president of Iran thinks he’s going to flit into New York next week for the U.N. General Assembly and escape unchallenged, boy is he going to be in for a surprise. Nobel laureate Elie Wiesel yesterday added his name to a small but high-powered international group of private citizens who are pushing to have Iran thrown out of the United Nations in response to Iran’s violations of the 1948 Convention to Prevent and Punish the Crime of Genocide.

President Ahmadinejad will also be met with a large rally on September 20 outside the U.N. at noon organized by the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, the Jewish Community Relations Council of New York, and the UJA-Federation of New York. The rally, in support of Israel, calls for implementation of U.N. Security Council Resolution 1701, which calls for disarming Iran’s proxy army Hezbollah. It also calls for supporting the war against state sponsors of terror, including Iran. The executive vice chairman of the Conference, Malcolm Hoenlein, told us yesterday that he’s received requests from as far away as Texas, Arkansas, Ottawa, and New Hampshire to participate in the rally.

The legal effort in which Mr. Wiesel is involved, established at the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs, includes a former Israeli ambassador to the United Nations, Dore Gold, and a former Israeli ambassador to America, Meir Rosenne. “It is hard to believe that at a time when the president of Iran is making statements denying the Holocaust and does not hide his intention to erase Israel from the map, the enlightened world is planning to host Ahmadinejad at the opening of the General Assembly instead of evicting his country from the U.N. altogether,” the group said in a statement issued yesterday.

It might seem farfetched to invoke a genocide convention against Iran when, thank goodness, no genocide has happened yet. But the treaty — which Iran itself signed and ratified — is called the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide. In Bosnia, Rwanda, and Darfur, the United Nations and the world waited until after the slaughter to act. In this case, there has been a warning. The leader of Iran’s proxy in Lebanon, Hezbollah’s Hassan Nasrallah, has stated that if the Jews “all gather in Israel, it will save us the trouble of going after them worldwide,” and said, “it is an open war until the elimination of Israel and until the death of the last Jew on earth.”

The treaty states that “Direct and public incitement to commit genocide” is punishable. We don’t have much confidence in the enforceability of international law, which seems to be used in practice mainly as a hammer by neutralist groups like Human Rights Watch to pound Israel and America. Yet the legal campaign, like the rally to be held in New York, is significant in shaping public awareness of Iran’s intentions — an awareness that is vital to preventing the genocide that Iran openly boasts that it intends.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
