Iran demands U.N. condemnation over Israel's threats

Iran's permanent representative to the United Nations urged this organization to condemn remarks by regime cabinet minister, ISNA reported from Tehran.

Mohammad Khazaie's demand follows the threats by Shaul Mofaz who had said on Friday the regime would attack Iran if it does not mothball its nuclear program.

He in his remarks had concluded launching an attack against Iran would be unavoidable since the efforts to make Tehran halt nuclear activities were inefficient.

"The window of opportunity has closed. The sanctions are not effective. There will be no alternative but to attack Iran in order to stop the Iranian nuclear program," Mofaz had said.

Khazaie in a letter written to Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon on Saturday demanded the Security Council to condemn Israel's explicit threat against Iran.

"Such a dangerous threat against a sovereign state and a member of the United Nations constitutes a manifest violation of international law and contravenes the most fundamental principles of the charter of the United Nations, and, thus, requires a resolute and clear response on the part of the United Nations, particularly the Security Council," he wrote.

The Security Council's history of failing to act against Israel has emboldened it to continue and even increase its unlawful behaviors and policies, he added.

What poses the most immediate and serious threat that the world and the region are facing are the regime's arsenals, he said.

Some believe Mofaz remarks being concurrent with his efforts to succeed prime minister Ehud Olmert as the leader of Kadima faction was not irrelevant to his ambition for the post.

Israel in 1981 performed an attack on the incomplete Iraq's nuclear reactor.

IAEA chief Mohammad ElBaradei has also condemned the Israel's threats against Iran saying "with unilateral military actions, countries are undermining international agreements."
