Diplomats walk out of the U.N. General Assembly in New York during the speech by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Thursday.

UNITED NATIONS The U.S. and several European delegations walked out of the U.N. speech of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Thursday after he said most people believe the U.S. government was behind the Sept. 11 terror attacks in order to assure Israel's survival.

In his speech to the annual General Assembly, Ahmadinejad said it was mostly U.S. government officials who believed a terrorist group was behind the suicide hijacking attacks that brought down New York's World Trade Center and hit the Pentagon.

Another theory, he said, was "that some segments within the U.S. government orchestrated the attack to reverse the declining American economy, and its grips on the Middle East, in order to save the Zionist regime" his way of characterizing Israel.

"The majority of the American people as well as most nations and politicians around the world agree with this view," Ahmadinejad told the 192-nation assembly.

The U.S. and some European delegations left shortly after Ahmadinejad made the remarks.

The U.S. delegation issued this statement in response: "Rather than representing the aspirations and goodwill of the Iranian people, Mr. Ahmadinejad has yet again chosen to spout vile conspiracy theories and anti-Semitic slurs that are as abhorrent and delusional as they are predictable."

The Iranian leader also spoke of threats to burn the Quran by U.S. religious groups, calling that an act of "evil." He held up a copy of the Muslim holy book, saying "the truth cannot be burned."

Earlier, President Barack Obama spoke to the session , saying "the United States and the international community seek a resolution to our differences with Iran, and the door remains open to diplomacy should Iran choose to walk through it."

"But the Iranian government must demonstrate a clear and credible commitment, and confirm to the world the peaceful intent of its nuclear program," Obama said.

U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, for his part, warned kings, prime ministers and presidents of growing political polarization and social inequalities and implored U.N. members to show greater tolerance and mutual respect to bring the world together.

In his keynote speech, the U.N. chief told leaders from the 192-member nations that "today, we are being tested."

Ban said people everywhere are living in fear of losing their jobs, too many are caught in conflict, "and we see a new politics at work a politics of polarization."

"We hear the language of hate, false divisions between 'them' and 'us,' those who insist on 'their way' or 'no way,'" he said.

In times of such polarization and uncertainty, Ban said, "let us remember, the world still looks to the United Nations for moral and political leadership."

The meeting follows a three-day summit to promote the achievement of U.N. anti-poverty goals by 2015 that wrapped up late Wednesday night. Many leaders who attended that summit remained in New York for the ministerial session, and will shift gears to other world issues from the continuing impact of the global financial crisis to terrorism and nuclear proliferation.

Ban urged Iran "to engage constructively with the international community and comply fully with Security Council resolutions" calling for Tehran to suspend uranium enrichment and return to talks.

The secretary-general also touched on many other global issues urging North Korea to return to six-party talks on its nuclear program, calling on Israel and the Palestinians not to take any action that would hold back progress on peace talks, urging progress on nuclear disarmament where "we see new momentum," and declaring again the climate change remains the world's "defining challenge."

Just ahead of Obama's speech, Brazilian Foreign Minister Celso Amorin sharply criticized the United States, saying that the 2003 invasion of Iraq demonstrated that the "blind faith in intelligence reports tailored to justify political goals must be rejected."

"We must ban once and for all the use of force inconsistent with international law," Amorin told the General Assembly, adding that all international disputes should be peacefully resolved through dialogue.

The Bush administration did not seek authorization from the U.N. Security Council for the invasion, which would have legitimized the action under international law.

On Wednesday, European Union foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and the foreign ministers of Britain, China, France, Germany and Russia met to try to find a solution to the long-running dispute over Iran's nuclear ambitions. They urged Iran to come to the table for a new round of talks, and said it remained essential for Iran to prove its nuclear program is peaceful.

The U.S. and key Western allies fear Iran could try to process its low enriched uranium into highly enriched uranium to make an atomic weapon. Iran insists its nuclear program is purely peaceful, aimed solely at producing nuclear energy.

Like John Bolton said "Yes, 33 people got up and walked out; however, it was disturbing that 159 others did not."

In other breaking news, it was discovered that 33 people brought their balls with them that day. The other 159 left them in the wife's purse.

Indeed. I am surprised more people did not leave.

Also the bit about the US not going to the UN in 2003 is factually inaccurate. I may not have aggreed with there emphasis, and they may not have gotten their desired goal...but the United States of America DID come before the United Nations, and DID ask for a vote prior to the Iraq invasion.

No one really thinks the Bush Administration had anything to do with the attacks, except, possibly, not preventing them from occuring in the first place, and for some of the issues to do with trying to get airsupport to New York which was less then prompt.

The irony is that any reasoning for such a thing, leveled at that Governement can be more easily, and safer (to the Government) ways to achieve by other means...to think the US Government would stoop so low to try and patriotise its people into action is stupid...the American Citizens dont need any encouragement in that department...they dont need a national tragedy in order to show a united front...that just shows lack of knowledge on the Irainian side to suggest

What they need is another Revolution, they want to tear down the Government they have now, and create a new one, preferably detached...i.e. NOT an islamic republic...to do this, they need to completely overpower the Revolutionary Guard, Distroy whatever Democrasy is rulling, and assassinate or exhile the Spiritual Leaders of that Nation.

:ninja: You know...thirty or forty years ago, the United States would have offered dissidents practical help on creating a coup :ninja: Effectively funding a coup, without a land invasion, by helpping those in the opposition revolt against their own Government.

They had plenty of successes in Latin America :laugh: I wouldnt condemn any world power for passively trying to help bring down the Iranian Regieme. One must be seen to be working within the international framework, which means no you cant just waltz in and take them out...but what you can do, is help fund people within that Nation whose own personal inspiration is to do it for themselves...or you could do exactly what Mossad does. A small team is deployed to do the dirty work on a no strings attached basis.

Its already proven that both the U.S and U.K. have no problem with trying to incarcerate people they think are a danger without trial or without charge, and its already proven that both states are alright with using mild torture within the scope of interogation techniques. Its a private matter, one not spoken about, but one which is in the Citizens best interest. I dont understand when there was a recent upsearch and minor rebellion in Iran at the Presidents fraudulent re-ellection...why the Countries with the most to gain, dont just do it.

Lets face it...sooner or later something will have to be done, because they have no plans to stop what they are doing. I sincerely think that State Sponcered Assassinations, and off the record attempts to try and bring down such a government would be truely the most efficent and best way to handle this...noone wants another Iraq...and noone wants nuclear warfare.

Its not even Pre-Emptive IMHO. The true Moralists have to face the fact that Iran wont cave to international pressure, and are not just playing silly buggers. The decision for action, on their side has already been made. We arent waiting for them to declaire war...in effect they have made it clear there will never be peace...making action a far cry from anything Pre-Emptive...and if anything overdue.

I will however refuse to condone any plans for a land invasion. Its a foolish waste of military resources and honourable men, and an aggressive form of breaching international law for personal gain.

Dont break the law. Simply, if you must, solve matters by methods that are not wholly governed by it :ninja:
