Diplomats have walked out of a UN anti-racism conference during a speech by the Iranian president in which he described Israel as "totally racist".
Dozens of delegates got up and left, moments after two protesters wearing coloured wigs disrupted the start of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's speech.
Diplomats who remained applauded as Mr Ahmadinejad continued his address.
France said it was a "hate speech" and the US called it "vile". Some countries had boycotted the meeting altogether.
How many people will look at this story and see it in the context of "anti-smeitism" and racism and so forth?
Now how many might notice the fact that the boycotts and walkouts of so many powerful nations (all in the name of not offending jews) is one hell of a demonstration of the unequivical power that the people of that nation exert over most of the world?
'JEWISH POWER DOMINATES AT VANITY FAIR'
by Nathan Burstien
"It's a list of "the world's most powerful people," 100 of the bankers and media moguls, publishers and image makers who shape the lives of billions. It's an exclusive, insular club, one whose influence stretches around the globe but is concentrated strategically in the highest corridors of power.
More than half its members, at least by one count, are Jewish."
