health and victory and make us his followers and those who
attest to his rightfulness"
Ladies and Gentlemen,
I am grateful to the Almighty God who granted me the opportunity
to appear before this world assembly once again. I wish to begin
by commemorating those who lost their lives in the horrible
flood in Pakistan and express my
heartfelt sympathy with the families who lost their loved ones,
as well as with the people and the government of Pakistan. I
urge everyone to assist their fellow men and women as a humane
Let me thank H.E. Mr. Ali Abdussalam Treki, the President of the
sixty-fourth session of the United Nations General Assembly, for
all his efforts during his tenure. I also would like to
congratulate H.E. Mr. Joseph Deiss, the President of the
sixty-fifth session of the United Nations General Assembly and
wish him all success.
In the past years, I spoke to you about some of the hopes and
concerns, including family crises, security, human dignity,
world economy, climate change as well as the aspiration for
justice and [a] lasting peace. After about one hundred years of
domination, the system of Capitalism and the existing world
order has proved to be unable to provide appropriate solution to
the problems of societies, thus coming to an end. I shall try to
examine the two main causes of this failure and picture some
features of the ideal future order.
A) Attitudes and Beliefs
As you are well aware, the divine prophets had the mission to
call everyone to monotheism, love and justice and show mankind
the path to prosperity. They invite men to contemplation and
knowledge in order to better appreciate the truth and to avoid
atheism and egoism. The very nature of the message of all
prophets is one and the same. Every messenger endorsed the
messenger before him and gave glad tidings about the prophet to
come, and presented a more complete version of the religion in
accordance with the capacity of the man at the time. This
continued up to the last messenger of God who presented the
perfect and all inclusive religion.
In opposition to that, the egotist and the greedy stood up
against this clear call, revolting against the message. Nimrod
countered Hazrat Abraham, Pharaoh countered Hazrat Moses and the
greedy countered Hazrat Jesus Christ and Hazrat Mohammad (Peace
be upon them all). In the recent centuries, the human ethics and
values have been rejected as a cause for backwardness. They were
even portrayed as opposing wisdom and science because of the
earlier infliction on man by the proclaimers of religion in the
dark ages of the West. Man’s disconnection from Heaven detached
him from his true self.
Man with his potentials for understanding the secrets of the
universe, his instinct for seeking truth, his aspirations for
justice and perfection, his quest for beauty and purity and his
capacity to represent God on earth was reduced to a creature
limited to the materialistic world with a mission to maximize
individualistic pleasures. Human instinct, then, replaced true
Human beings and nations were considered rivals and the
happiness of an individual or a nation was defined in collision
with, and elimination [of] or [the] suppression of others.
Constructive evolutionary cooperation was replaced with a
destructive struggle for survival. The lust for capital and
domination replaced monotheism which is the gate to love and
This widespread clash of the egoist with the divine values gave
way to slavery and colonialism. A large portion of the world
came under the domination of a few western States. Tens of
millions of people were taken to slavery and tens of millions of
families were shattered as a result.
All the resources, the rights and the cultures of the colonized
nations were plundered. Lands were occupied and the indigenous
people were humiliated and mass- murdered. Yet, nations rose up,
colonialism was alienated and the independence of the nations
was recognized. Thus, the hope for respect, prosperity and
security was revived amongst nations. In the beginning of the
past century, nice talks about freedom, human rights and
democracy created hopes for healing the deep wounds of the past.
Today, however, not only those dreams are not realized, but
memories, even at times worse than before, have been recorded.
As a result of the two World Wars, the occupation of Palestine,
the Korean and the Vietnam Wars, the Iraqi war against Iran, the
occupation of Afghanistan and Iraq as well as many wars in
Africa, hundreds of millions of people were killed, wounded or
Terrorism, illicit drugs, poverty and the social gaps increased.
The dictatorial and coup d'etat governments in Latin America
committed unprecedented crimes with the support of the West.
Instead of disarmament, the proliferation and stockpiling of
nuclear, biological and chemical weapons expanded, putting the
world under a bigger threat. As a result, the very same old
goals of colonialists and the slave masters were, this time
around, pursued with a new facade.
B) The Global Management and Ruling Structures
The League of Nations and, then, the United Nations were
established with the promise to bring about peace, security and
the realization of human rights, which in fact meant a global
management. One can analyze the current governance of the world
by examining three events:
First, the event of the 11 September 2001 which has affected the
whole world for almost a decade. All of a sudden, the news of
the attack on the twin towers was broadcast using numerous
footages of the incident. Almost all governments and known
figures strongly condemned this incident. But then a
propaganda machine came into full force; it was implied that the
whole world was exposed to a huge danger, namely terrorism, and
that the only way to save the world would be to deploy forces
into Afghanistan. Eventually Afghanistan, and shortly
thereafter, Iraq were occupied.
Please take note:
It was said that some three thousands people were killed on 11
September for which we are all very saddened. Yet, up until
now, in Afghanistan and Iraq, hundreds of thousands of people
have been killed, millions wounded and displaced, and the
conflict is still going on and expanding. In identifying
those responsible for the attack, there were three viewpoints.
1- That a very powerful and complex terrorist group, able to
successfully cross all layers of the American intelligence and
security, carried out the attack. This is the main viewpoint
advocated by American statesmen.
2- That some segments within the U.S. government orchestrated
the attack to reverse the declining American economy and its
grips on the Middle East in order also to save the Zionist
regime. The majority of the American people as well as other
nations and politicians agree with this view.
3- It was carried out by a terrorist group but the American
government supported and took advantage of the situation.
Apparently, this viewpoint has fewer proponents. The main
evidence linking the incident was a few passports found in the
huge volume of rubble and a video of an individual whose place
of domicile was unknown, but it was announced that he had been
involved in oil deals with some American officials. It was also
covered up and said that due to the explosion and fire no trace
of the suicide attackers was found.
There remain, however, a few questions [to] be answered:
1- Would it not have been sensible that first a thorough
investigation should have been conducted by independent groups
to conclusively identify the elements involved in the attack and
then map out a rational plan to take measures against them?
2- Assuming the viewpoint of the American government, is it
rational to launch a classic war through widespread deployment
of troops that led to the death of hundreds of thousands of
people to counter a terrorist group?
3- Was it not possible to act the way Iran countered the Riggi
terrorist group, who killed and wounded 400 innocent people in
Iran. In the Iranian operation, no innocent person was hurt.
It is proposed that the United Nations set up an independent
fact-finding group for the event of 11 September so that in the
future expressing views about it is not forbidden.
I wish to announce here that next year the Islamic Republic of
Iran will host a conference to study terrorism and the means to
confront it. I invite officials, scholars, thinkers, researchers
and research institutes of all countries to attend this
Second, is the occupation of the Palestinian territories
The oppressed people of Palestine have lived under the rule of
an occupying regime for 60 years, been deprived of freedom,
security and the right to self-determination, while the
occupiers are given recognition. On a daily basis, the houses
are being destroyed over the heads of innocent women and
children. People are deprived of water, food and medicine in
their own homeland. The Zionists have imposed five all-out wars
on the neighboring countries and on the Palestinian people.
The Zionists committed the most horrible crimes against the
defenseless people in the wars against Lebanon and Gaza. The
Zionist regime attacked a humanitarian flotilla in a blatant
defiance of all international norms and kill[ed] civilians. This
regime, which enjoys the absolute support of some western
countries, regularly threatens the countries in the region and
continues publicly announced assassination of Palestinian
figures and others, while Palestinian defenders and those
opposing this regime are pressured, labeled as terrorists and
anti Semites. All values, even the freedom of expression, in
Europe and in the United States are being sacrificed at the
altar of Zionism.
Solutions are doomed to fail because the right of the
Palestinian people is not taken into account. Would we have
witnessed such horrendous crimes if instead of recognizing the
occupation, the sovereign right of the Palestinian people had
been recognized? Our unambiguous proposition is the return of
the Palestinian refugees to their home land and the reference to
the vote of the people of Palestine to exercise their
sovereignty and decide on the type of governance.
Third, is the nuclear energy.
Nuclear energy is clean and cheap and a heavenly gift which is
amongst the most suitable alternatives to cut the pollutions
emanating from fossil fuels. The Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT)
allows all member States to use nuclear energy without limits
and the International Atomic Energy Agency [IAEA] is mandated to
provide member States with technical and legal support. The
nuclear bomb is the worst inhumane weapon and must totally be
eliminated. The NPT prohibits its development and stockpiling
and calls for nuclear disarmament.
Nonetheless, note what some of the permanent members of the
Security Council and nuclear bomb holders have done:
They have equated nuclear energy with the nuclear bomb, and have
distanced this energy from the reach of most of nations by
establishing monopolies and pressuring the IAEA. While at the
same time, they have continued to maintain, expand and upgrade
their own nuclear arsenals.
This has entailed the following:
Not only the nuclear disarmament has not been realized, but also
nuclear bombs have been proliferated in some regions, including
by the occupying and intimidating Zionist regime.
I would like here to propose that the year 2011 be proclaimed
the year of nuclear disarmament and “Nuclear Energy for all,
Nuclear Weapons for None”.
In all these cases, the United Nations has been unable to take
any effective course of action. Unfortunately, in the decade
proclaimed as the “International Decade for the Culture of
Peace”, hundreds of thousands were killed and injured as a
result of war, aggression and occupation, and hostilities and
Ladies and Gentlemen,
Very recently the world witnessed the ugly and inhumane act of
burning the Holy Quran.
The Holy Quran is the Divine Book and the eternal miracle of the
Prophet of lslam. It calls for worshipping the One God, justice,
compassion toward people, development and progress, reflection
and thinking, defending the oppressed and resisting against the
oppressors; and it names with respect the previous Messengers of
God, like Noah, Abraham, Isaaq, Joseph, Moses and Jesus Christ
(Peace be Upon them all) and endorses them.
They burned Quran to burn all these truths and good judgments.
However, the truth could not be burned. Quran is eternal because
God and truth are everlasting. This act and any other act which
widen the gap and distances between nations is evil. We should
wisely avoid playing into the hands of Satan. On behalf of the
Iranian nation I pay respect to all Divine Books and their
This is the Quran and this is the Bible. I pay respect to both
For years, the inefficiency of the capitalism and the existing
world management and structures has been exposed and the
majority of States and nations have been on a quest for
fundamental changes and for the prevalence of justice in global
relations. The cause of the United Nation’s ineptitude is in its
unjust structure. Major power is monopolized in the Security
Council due to the veto privilege, and the main pillar of the
Organization, namely the General Assembly, is marginalized.
In the past several decades, at least one of the permanent
members of the Security Council has always been a party to the
disputes. The veto advantage grants impunity to aggression and
occupation; How could, therefore, one expect competence while
both the judge and the prosecutor are a party to the dispute?
Had Iran enjoyed veto privilege, would the Security Council and
the IAEA Director General have taken the same position in the
The United Nations is the key center for coordinating the common
global management. Its structure needs to be reformed in a
manner that all independent States and nations [are] able to
participate in the global governance actively and
The veto privilege should be revoked and the General Assembly
should be the highest body and the Secretary-General should be
the most independent official and all his positions and
activities should be taken with the approval of the General
Assembly and should be directed towards promoting justice and
The Secretary-General should not come under pressure from powers
and/or the country hosting the Organization for his stating the
truth and [the] administration of justice. It is suggested that
the General Assembly should, within one year and in the
framework of an extraordinary session, finalize the reformation
of the Organization’s structure. The Islamic Republic of Iran
has clear suggestions in this regard and stands ready to
participate actively and constructively in the process.
Ladies and Gentlemen,
I announce clearly that the occupation of other countries
under the pretext of freedom and democracy is an unforgivable
crime. The world needs the logic of compassion and justice
and inclusive participation instead of [the] logic of force,
domination, unilateralism, war and intimidation. The world needs
to be governed by virtuous people like the Divine Prophets. The
two vast geographical spheres, namely Africa and Latin America,
have gone through historic developments during the past decades.
The new approaches in these two continents, which are based on
increasing level of integration and unity as well as on
localizing the growth and development models, have born
considerable fruits to the peoples of those regions. The
awareness and wisdom of the leaders of these two continents has
overcome the regional problems and crises without the
domineering interference of non-regional powers.
The Islamic Republic of Iran has expanded its relations with the
Latin America and Africa in all aspects in recent years.
And about the glorious Iran, The Tehran Declaration was a hugely
constructive step in confidence building efforts which was made
possible through the admirable good will by the governments of
Brazil and Turkey along with the sincere cooperation of the
Iranian government. Although the Declaration received
inappropriate reaction by some and was followed by an unlawful
resolution, it is still valid. We have observed the regulations
of the IAEA more than our commitments, yet, we have never
submitted to illegally imposed pressures nor will we ever do so.
It has been said that they want to pressure Iran into a
dialogue. Well, firstly, Iran has always been ready for a
dialogue based on respect and justice. Secondly, methods based
on disrespecting nations have long become ineffective. Those who
have used intimidation and sanctions in response to the clear
logic of the Iranian nation are in real terms destroying the
remaining credibility of the Security Council and the trust of
nations for this body, proving once and again how unjust is the
function of the Council.
When they threaten a great nation such as Iran which is known
throughout history for its scientists, poets, artists and
philosophers and whose culture and civilization is synonymous to
purity, submission to God and seeking justice, how can they ever
expect that other nations grow confidence on them?
It goes without saying that domineering methods in managing the
world has failed. Not only has the era of slavery and
colonialism and dominating the world passed, the path to the
reviving old Empires are blocked, too. We have announced that we
stand ready for a serious and free debate with the American
Statesmen to express our transparent views on issues of
importance to the world in this very venue. It is proposed here
that in order to have a constructive dialogue, an annual free
debate be organized within the General Assembly.
Friends and Colleagues,
The Iranian nation and the majority of the world’s nations and
governments are against the current discriminatory management of
the world. The inhumane nature of this management has put it at
a dead-end and requires a major overhaul. Reforming the world’s
affairs and bringing about tranquillity and prosperity requires
the participation of all, pure thoughts and the divine and
We are all of the idea that:
Justice is the basic element for peace, durable security and the
spread of love among peoples and nations. It is in the justice
that mankind seeks the realization of his aspirations, rights
and dignity, since he is wary of oppression, humiliation and ill
treatment. The true nature of mankind is manifested in the love
for other fellow humans and love for all the good in the world.
Love is the best foundation for establishing relation amongst
people and amongst nations.
As Vahshi Bafqi, the great Iranian poet, says:
“From the fountain of youth, drink thousand sips.
You’ll still die if you don’t have love’s grip.”
In making a world full of purity, safety and prosperity people
are not rivals, but companions. Those who see their happiness
but in the sorrow of others and their welfare and safety but in
others’ insecurity, those who see themselves superior to others,
are out of the path of humanity and are in evil’s course.
Economy and materialistic means are only some tools to serve
others, to create friendship and strengthen human connections
for spiritual perfection. They are not tools for show-off or
means of dominating others. Men and women complements each other
and family unit with pure, loving and long-lasting relation of
the spouses in its center is the guarantee for the continuity
and the bringing up generations, for true pleasures, for
spreading love and for reforming of the societies.
Woman is a reflection of God’s beauty and is the source of love
and caring. She is the guardian of purity and exquisiteness of
the society. The tendency to toughen the souls and behaviours of
women deprives them from their very basic right of being a
loving mother and a caring wife. It would result in a more
violent society with irreversible defects. Freedom is a divine
right that should serve peace and human perfection. Pure
thoughts and the will of the righteous are keys to the gates of
a pure life full of hope, liveliness and beauty.
This is the promise of God that the Earth will be inherited by
the pure and the righteous. And the people free from selfishness
will take up the management of the world. Then, there will be no
trace of sorrow, discrimination, poverty, insecurity and
aggression. The time for true happiness and for the blossoming
of the true nature of humankind, the way God has intended, will
All those seeking for justice and all the free spirits have been
waiting for this moment and have promised such glorious time.
The complete human, the true servant of God and the true friend
of the mankind whose father was from the generation of the
beloved Prophet of Islam and whose mother was from the true
believers of the Jesus Christ, shall wait along with Jesus the
son of Marry and the other righteous to appear on those
brilliant times and assist the humanity.
In welcoming them we should join ranks and seek justice. Praise
to Love and worship, praise to justice and freedom, praise to
the true humanity, the complete human, the true companion of the
humankind and peace be upon you and all the righteous and the
