Petition to Deny Ahmadinejad Visa to Attend UN General Assembly

Tags:

Deny Ahmadinejad the visa to attend the upcoming UN General Assembly in New York!

The Islamic Republic regime has ruled Iran for over 30 years. During this period hundreds of thousands of human lives have perished. A country has been ruined and a region totally destabilized. Many around the world have suffered from the consequences of State sponsored terrorism and above all, the world has been witnessing that this regime does not represent the Iranian people and hence, can not be regarded as legitimate.

At the same time, the Islamic regime in Iran and its supporters abroad are trying to emerge from the current crisis and seek international recognition and legitimacy for the rulers of the Islamic Republic.

On the verge of the upcoming United Nations General Assembly in September, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is reportedly planning to visit New York to attend the next UN General Assembly.

The Iranian community worldwide firmly believes that:

1- President Obama and his administration should decisively side with the people of Iran and deny Ahmadinejad (or any other Islamic Republic delegations for that matter) the right to obtain an entry visa to the United States for the purpose of “representing” the Iranian nation during the 64th United Nations General Assembly on September 15, 2009.

2- Neither Ahmadinejad nor any of the members of his cabinet have any legitimacy to be recognized as the president or be regarded as the representatives of the Iranian nation.

3- This is the least the civilized world can do for the Iranian people during these decisive times.

Such decision taken by the United States and President Obama will bear an enormous impact on the Iranian people’s struggle for freedom and democracy in Iran and the prevalence of peace worldwide.

Please add your voice and sign the petition to deny Ahmadinejad the visa to attend the upcoming UN General Assembly in New York!

That guy has got some nerves.

That guy has got some nerves. can he technically be denied a visa to the UN assembly? the UN is a world body, the United States it just a sit for the UN. He should be restricted to JFK - UN building - hotel - and the next available flight out when he has finished conducting his business.

Peace!
