The Non-Aligned Movement’s crisis

Writing at the Council on Foreign Relations, Stewart Patrick outlines the decline in mission and focus of the Non-Aligned Movement which just held its annual summit in Tehran.

Iran, of course, is showcasing the event as evidence that—despite the best efforts of the United States and the West—it is not isolated diplomatically. The Iranians have set out an ambitious agenda, with sessions devoted to topics ranging from nuclear disarmament to UN reform, sustainable development, Palestinian statehood, human rights, and opposition to “unilateral” sanctions. But many attendees, particularly from the Arab world, have few illusions about Iran’s intentions and ambitions.

    This Ahmadinejad looks like satan in man’s clothing. His whole exsistence is about hate and control. His words are evil and everything about him. The recent and rather small earthquake that hit iran is only the beginining of God’s fury vs this hateful and satanic being and all those who favor hime

    The Iranian, Syrian and the Egyptian don’t know how to negotiate. The only thing they know is killing each othet.
    As long as they leave Israel aside, that’s will be enough for me, because Israel aleady fought with more then only country.
    Israel belong to the jews and nobody will take it a way.
