Mo'ammar Gadhafi mocks the UN & the World.
President Gaddafi Mo'ammar mounted the rostrum of the United Nations. This is the first time in 40 years of dictatorial rule over Libya. For an hour and 30 minutes (instead of 15 minutes scheduled) to 120 heads of governments, he attacks specially the Security Council dominated by five permanent members (China, Russia, USA, France and Great Britain). They have "used their veto in the design de of defend their interests and to terrorize the Third World. (...) If this is the Security Council, then it must call the Board of terror because terrorism is not just al-Qaida." He said. In fact, he took over in Arabic with theatricality, the speech of the former president of the United Nations General Assembly, the Nicaraguan Miguel D'Escoto Brockmann. Obviously, the President of the General Assembly which is none other than his former Foreign Minister Ali Triki Abdoussalam shall interrupt the president of the African Union!
And to complete the media show, and throws it disdainfully rips the UN Charter over his shoulder on the podium!
Revenge of the Security Council of the United Nations.
On 17 March 2011, the Security Council UN vote resolution No. 1973, establishing a no-fly zone over Libya.
On 21 March 2011, when he asks for an urgent meeting of Security Council, it vote for sanctions against him, his family and his senior staff (embargo on arms sales, travel ban on the territories of UN member states and the freezing of assets, before the International Criminal Court).
On 19 March 2011, the Libyan ambassador to the UN, Abdurrahman Shalgam, former Foreign Minister of the country wrote a letter to the Security Council in which he supports the use of ICC
He emphasized that the Libyan regime has "no legitimacy. (...) This resolution is a signal to stop this fascist regime that still exists to Tripoli," he said.
Miguel d'Escoto Brockmann: A former Catholic priest diplomat
Son of a Nicaraguan diplomat Miguel d'Escoto Brockmann, born in Los Angeles February 5, 1933. In 1947, he returned to the United States continue his studies. In 1962 he was ordained a priest after his studies at the Catholic Maryknoll College in New York. In 1963, he founded in Chile, the National Institute for Research and Popular Action (INAP), to assist the underprivileged in the slums of Santiago. After the earthquake that devastated Managua in December 1972, he mobilizes aid for earthquake victims.
In 1973, he created the foundation of Nicaragua for the Integral Development of the Communities. (FUNDECI). Member of World Council of Churches (WCC) and proponent of liberation theology, he secretly adheres to the Frente Sandinista National Liberation in the years 1970.
In 1983, he was suspended from the Catholic Church because of his political activities (he was Minister of Foreign Affairs) by Pope John Paul II at the same time as the Jesuits Ernesto Cardenal (Minister of Culture), Fernando Cardenal (Minister of National Education) and Edgar Parrales (Minister of Welfare). He has served as foreign minister of Nicaragua from 1979 to 1990. He becomes then the Senior Advisor for Foreign Affairs, with rank of Minister to the President of Nicaragua from 2007.
From September 2008 to September 2009, he chaired the 63rd 63rd UN General Assembly. He received the Lenin Prize for Peace for the year 1985-1986 and the Thomas Merton Award 1987. He chairs the National Water Nicaragua, and leads the fight for the preservation of Lake Cocibolca (8,200 km2 of 177 km in length), the largest source of fresh water in Central America.
Revolutionary activist committed to the principles of nonviolence.
The former Father Miguel d'Escoto Brockmann, a lawyer of multilateralism and respect for international law is based on figures like the Russian Leo Tolstoy (1828-1910), Indian Mahatma Gandhi (1869-1948), the African American Martin Luther King Jr. (1929-1968) and American Dorothy Day (1897-1980), founder of Catholic Worker Movement. Sandinista theatrical and charismatic, he dedicates a particular resentment in the U.S., which he accuses of trying to assassinate him in 1983 "with a bottle of Benedictine poisoned." In 1984, he was noticed by initiating the complaint Nicaraguan government against the United States before the International Court of Justice for their support of the military and paramilitary activities against his country. The complaint led to a Court ruling in favor of Nicaragua. He even dares to deal with President Ronald Reagan (1911-2004) of "Butcher of the Nicaraguan people."
What enchants Libyan President Gaddafi Mo'ammar who lost his adopted daughter in the bombing of Tripoli by U.S. planes (1986) under the orders of the same Ronald W. Ronald W. Reagan. It then attracts the ire of Israel by comparing the behavior of the Israeli police in the Palestinian territories to apartheid.
A first in UN history: A priest president of the National Assembly!
This is the first time a former prelate presiding the General Assembly in the history of the United Nations since its founding in 1945. And it is also the first time a foreign country becomes Ambassador a foreign country to the United Nations, whatever his qualities as a diplomat. Especially since the mandate of a true ambassador of Libya, in this case, Mr. Abdurrahman Mohamed Shalgam (former Minister of Foreign Affairs) who defected February 26, 2011, is still ongoing. He now feels he is speaking for the Libyan people. Commenting on this appointment, he said: He just wants to make propaganda for Gaddafi. (...). They have mercenaries on the battlefield, so I guess this man is a political mercenary. "
A diplomat mercenary "visa free" for the UN?
The Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon can accept this second "unprecedented farce" of Mo'ammar Gaddafi? Even with the support of Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega (Mo'ammar Gaddafi Award for Peace 2009), Miguel d'Escoto urged to accept his mission « to help Libya to defend its right and to solve his problems without foregn interference ». He replaces Ali Triki Abdoussalam appointed in early March 2011 and has never obtained a U.S. visa to return to his post in New York, given that relations with the Libyan Embassy in the United States were "suspended". For Susan Rice, U.S. Ambassador United Nations, this strange appointment raises some embarrassment. "He came to the United States with a tourist visa. He can not represent a country, Nicaragua, Libya or another, the United Nations, "she warned. Although born in Los Angeles, California, he had voluntarily renounced his nationality U.S.. His certification signed by the Foreign Minister, Musa Kusa has lost its legal force with the resignation and flight to London this last March 28, 2011.
"The Libyan episode is a new chapter in his career based on the confrontation with the United States. That Colonel Gaddafi is this colorful character to represent it is perfectly logical, "said Colum Lynch, Washington Post correspondent at the United Nations.
April 1st, 2011, after much criticism and inability to perform his duties, Mr. Miguel d'Escoto has indicated his intention to settle for simply being representative of Nicaragua to the United Nations.
But what other incongruity we reserve the "King of kings traditional African" Mo'ammar Gaddafi to win his crusade against his people and the rest of humanity?
