Israeli United Nations Ambassador Ron Prosor stormed out of the United Nations Monday morning as Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad took the podium to address a forum on international law.
“There is no justice and no judge here,” Prosor was quoted as saying to aides as he left the room. “The leader of a outlaw state that flouts international law on a regular basis and violates the fundamental principles of the rule of law has no place here.”
As he walked from the U.N. building, Prosor told The Jewish Week: “This serial Holocaust denier has the audacity to stand up and talk about the rule of law. It’s like having an arsonist command the fire department in New York. It’s an outrage, and the Israeli delegation left.”
