Protests outside Ahmadinejad's U.N. appearances - matched by Western diplomats walking out during speech denouncing U.S. and Israel

On Tuesday (in advance of today's Sukkot holiday) the New York Board of Rabbi's gathered, joined by the Interfaith Community, to form a human link-chain across First Avenue and E. 40th Street. The NYPD had to disrupt their chain, which they did with a sounding of their shofar. Story on Vigilant Squirrel Brigade .

On Thursday, 23 September, the U.S. Mission to the United Nations declared why they walked-out on Iran's Thug-in-Chief's speech which alleged a U.S. conspiracy to attack the World Trade Center to protect Israel:
"Rather than representing the aspirations and goodwill of the Iranian people, Mr. Ahmadinejad has yet again chosen to spout vile conspiracy theories and anti-Semitic slurs that are as abhorrent and delusional as they are predictable."
The U.S. delegation was followed by the delegations from the U.K., Australia, Sweden, and Spain.

Protests on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday objecting to the presence of the Iranian President Ahmadinejad have come from many groups, especially Persian-American.
