The full text of this week’s commentary follows:

This is the week when world leaders gather in New York for the new UN session.

And it’s the week when Iran’s infamous president makes his annual appearance.

Yes, though president of a regime that flouts UN resolutions on its nuclear program, he gets to speak at the UN.

Though his country arms the murderous regime in Syria, where nearly 30,000 have been killed, he gets to speak at the UN.

Though his country stomps on UN protected human rights, he gets to speak at the UN.

Though his country denies the Holocaust ever happened, even as the UN marks the Holocaust each January 27th, he gets to speak at the UN.

And though his country openly calls for the annihilation of another UN member state, Israel, he gets to speak at the UN.

At AJC, we’ve been calling on the world to wake up to the Iranian reality for well over a decade.

And we won’t stop.

History has taught us why.
