Daniel Pearl was the Wall Street Journal reporter who was murdered by terrorists in Karachi, Pakistan, in early 2002. His last words were "I am Jewish." Daniel Pearl's great-grandparents had perished in the Auschwitz concentration camp 60 years earlier. Today his father, Judea, spoke at the United Nations and urged his listeners to recognize the evil of "Zionophobia" – the rejection of Israel as the historical homeland of the Jewish people.
Secretary-General Kofi Annan is in a mad scramble to prevent Iran's nuclear arms ambitions from being sent to the UN Security Council.

In plain language, according to Annan, the previous UN reports which already reveal that Iran has failed to meet its obligations under the Nuclear Non-proliferation treaty, are now meaningless, and Iran's written public repudiation in early January of its treaty obligations needs further study. Wait for another UN report.

It was obvious that ElBaradei, once renewed, would follow this path and become a serious impediment to non-proliferation at a crucial time and yet the administration refused to just say 'no.' When will we ever learn?
