Danon-UN-Iran

UNITED NATIONS – The United Nations must punish Iran for testing ballistic missiles it could use to target Israel with nuclear warheads, contends Danny Danon, Israel’s ambassador to the U.N.

Danon delivered his remarks outside the Security Council chambers Monday as representatives prepared to huddle in a private session.

Standing next to a photograph of the missile Iran launched last week, Danon said: “Iran’s true intentions can no longer be hidden. A senior Republican Guard official declared only last week ‘strike the Zionist enemy from afar.’ The Iranians actually wrote on one of the missiles ‘Israel must be removed from the earth.’

“Over 2,000 years ago, our prophet Daniel warned of the writing on the wall,” he said. “Today, I am warning of the writing on the missile.”

U.N. Security Council Resolution 2231 bars Iran from designing, developing and testing missiles capable of delivering nuclear weapons.

“If the Security Council does not act after last week’s missile test, it will give Iran a green light to continue with its nuclear missile test,” Israel’s envoy warned.

Danon called on the U.N. to take “concrete punitive steps,” saying “we cannot bury our head in the sand and hope that the ayatollahs act responsibly.”

“If a missile was launched and it was written on it England, France or Japan must be removed from the Earth, would the international community sit silently?”

He reminded the world leaders, “History has taught us that when a dangerous regime goes unchecked in threatening one state, no country can be sure that they are not next in line.”

Britain’s ambassador to the United Nations, Matthew Rycroft, told reporters before the meeting that his government believes “Iran is in blatant disregard of Resolution 2231” and will ask the secretariat for a “report,” though he didn’t expect any concrete action from Monday’s meeting.

The U.S. ambassador to the U.N., Samantha Power, called for the meeting after the Obama administration came under fire for ignoring Iranian violations of U.N. resolutions. China and Russia are expected to oppose sanctioning Iran for its missile tests.
