UNITED NATIONS - Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad took aim at U.S. policies in
Iraq and Lebanon on Tuesday, and accused Washington of abusing its power in the U.N. Security Council to punish others while protecting its own interests and allies.
He addressed the annual U.N. General Assembly hours after President Bush spoke to the same forum. But while Ahmadinejad harshly criticized the United States, Bush directed his remarks to the Iranian people in a clear insult to the hard-line government.
In his speech, Bush pointed to the Iranian government's rejection of a Security Council demand to stop enriching uranium by Aug. 31 or face sanctions.
"The greatest obstacle to this future is that your rulers have chosen to deny you liberty and to use your nation's resources to fund terrorism and fuel extremism and pursue nuclear weapons," the U.S. leader said.

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad spoke to the United Nations annual assembly yesterday in what I can only describe as a disgrace to this country and our very way of life.
This is a man who has openly and proudly defied our country over its nuclear enrichment program and he has openly and gleefully stated that he would be more than happy to exchange the lives of half of Iran to destroy Israel.
This is also a man who has openly denied that the Holocaust even took place, showing his utter contempt for the Jewish state and its people, while supporting terrorist organizations such as Hezbollah.
The Pope was just quoting a text used by others to describe Islam and how it has been spread by the sword and how it is corrupt with violence.
So what do the Muslims do? They proved the point of the Pope by themselves with the attacks on churches, killing of Nuns and the burning effigies of the Pope and the pledges of death the have been widespread across the Islamic world.
I have no problem believing that Islam can be a religion of peace, but the only problem is that I do not see that being practiced that way except in some very rare places, the United States being one of them.
They are calling for the killings of the crusaders around the world, meaning our troops all over the world fighting these savages and against our allies such as France and Britain.
I am totally offend and disgusted with our government allowing this piece of human waste to enter our great country that he has vowed to destroy, it is unthinkable to me.
New York has the largest Jewish population of any city in our country, were are the people of New York to protest this savage as the do our President and Christianity?
Islam will not prevail is this struggles between faiths. Our country will not fall and we will not back down, this you can count on.
