 NEW YORK  -- Jewish groups are calling on U.N. member representatives to walk out in protest when Iran's president speaks tomorrow (Monday) at the United Nations.

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's plans to address the U.N. Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty Review Conference, according to the Jewish Telegraphic Agency (JTA),  make a mockery of the proceedings, Jewish groups said.

"We call on all countries, particularly those that value democracy and freedom, to leave the United Nations hall when Iran's president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, rises to speak," the president and executive vice chairman of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, Alan Solow and Malcolm Hoenlein, said in a statement. "Iran's pursuit of a nuclear weapons capability poses a threat to the region and the entire Western world. To have President Ahmadinejad address this review conference makes a mockery of the efforts of many countries to prevent nuclear weapons and nuclear terrorism from becoming the gravest global threats of this century."

The Jewish Community Relations Council of New York issued an action alert urging readers to e-mail U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon at sg@un.org to protest Ahmadenijad's inclusion at the conference.

The World Jewish Congress asked its member communities to contact their government representatives to persuade them to participate in the protest walkout, saying in a statement, "It is dismaying that, once again, the U.N. is allowing the head of a regime, foremost in the sponsorship of terrorism and the abuse of human rights, who defies U.N. resolutions regarding its nuclear ambitions, to appear before the international body."

    I dont buy anything Israeli, they are the true terrorists...killing children? What side of humanity are you people on??? Aparteid? Stealing land? If I had a nuke, I would give it to Iran, maybe they would do some good, like actually wipe Israel from the map...even though that was never said...stop mucking around in other peoples countries and these problems would never exist. If you killed my family because your holy book says we are animals, I would dedicate my life to killing you as well. Enough with the propaganda and lies, we know what you people are up to, same as Iraq. If you people love Israel so much...MOVE THERE and dont come back, we dont want your hate poisoning our country.

    What a disgrace for France, UK, and the US to walkout, how insulting that they ignore dialogue, how childish. You know what, our government is full of garbage people, liars, thieves, meglomaniacs and warcriminals. They just want to control them, not make friends, they want another Iraq. Disgusting and they all need to be fired. Waterboarding comes to mind actually.
