Massive walkout follows…
Two protesters, wearing clown wigs, briefly disrupted the beginning of the speech by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, yelling “Racist! Racist! Racist!” and throwing soft red clown noses at him, but he continued speaking. Shortly afterward a stream of Western delegates walked out when he attacked the creation of the state of Israel. France, which had warned of a walkout, described Ahmadinejad’s words as “hate speech”. Some of those who stayed clapped as Mr Ahmadinejad continued his speech. Way to go UN! Let’s get this guy some nukes pronto!!
UPDATE: One of the clowns has been identified as Boaz Toporovsky, head of the Israeli Students’ Union. LINK (in Hebrew, but great pic!). Anyone know a good lawyer in Switzerland?
