Iran Hijacks Agenda of NAM Summit in Tehran

One thing is certain: Iran is more than happy to host the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) summit in Tehran between the 26th and the 31st of August.

The NAM was created in 1961 during the collapse of the colonial system and had one main premiss- all member states committed not to form alliances with the major world powers (namely the United States and the former Soviet Union).

Today the NAM consists of 120 member states and 21 observers. While in the past the NAM had served as an important tool which protected post-colonial states, in the present, Iran intends to manipulate it for her own agenda. Specifically, due to the NAM sheer size, Iran will attempt to form a voting coalition to support her own agendas in the UN.

Iran does not only plan to hijack the summit’s agenda for its own diplomatic (and not so diplomatic) goals (detailed bellow), but also to gain support from NAM countries in order to be able to undermine the UN during the Iranian president’s address to the general assembly in September.

Furthermore, apart from attempting to form a voting coalition during the conference, Iran, who will serve as the NAM president for the following three years, will be able to speak in the name of the NAM states for the length of her presidency. This means that Iran can falsely project that their views are supported by all NAM states.

Iranian regime should not be allowed to exploit the NAM movement for her own purposes. The danger in allowing this to happen can be seen in the Iranian agenda itself, which includes (but not limited to):

In stark contrast to the agendas stated above, the spokesman for the Iranian political opposition calls on NAM states to stress the plight of political prisoners in Iran. The mere fact that the Iranian regime holds political rivals as prisoners shows how far Iran are from democracy and the danger in letting her leaders spearhead such an important and powerful movement as NAM.

Finally, it is important to note that the timing of the summit could not be better for Iran; it provides a golden opportunity to try and escape the enormous pressure Iran is under. A successful bid by Iran to form a voting alliance with NAM members will path Iran’s way to a nuclear bomb. A nuclear bomb that will change all the rules, a nuclear bomb that will hold the world hostage at the hands of Iran.

In the following weeks Iran24/07 will closely monitor both the preparations and the conference itself.

    I have no doubt it is all true what you are saying. The question is, why does the NAM allow itself to be manipulated like that?

    • The powers to be do not want a mini super power in the block.
      This is where it all started. The Sunni Iran was turned into a Shiat’ government by the French and British who know if attacked by Ottoman Empire would be destroyed. The Safavid dynasty then, by the force of sward, changed Iranian religion so they can fight (trained by french people) and weakened the Ottoman empire – who ultimately lost in WWI and was dismantled. Millions of Arabs, Turks, and Iranians were killed while the french build Chanzelize and British; their empire – using the technology and advanced science gathered from the Iranians and Ottoman empire. Since then, they have used the same tactics to put these fools against one another, and while they are killing each other, they rub their pocket!!! calling it “protecting the interest of the west” 🙂

    • Do you just click on stories without knowing what the source is? Lemming!
      This is their mantra….
      “Who are we? Why IRAN 24/07?

      The Geo- political situation in the middle east, and specifically in Iran, is changing rapidly, and the average reader (or writer…) often finds it difficult to keep track of the events through coherent, well established sources. We have founded this volunteer-based channel in order to provide these sources by quoting or translating news highlights; and creating high quality original visual materials, info graphics and from time to time even cartoons. Our goal is to provide to the intelligent reader a clear and precise monitor of Iran, and to be as real-time and as accessible as possible.

      We stand for a Free Iran, free from its current violent regime, liberal and peace-loving as its citizens truly are.”

      Next time know your source. Or better yet look at the top and click on it to get a better understanding.

    • I have never heard the U.S. or Israel or any other country state that they want to wipe Iran off the map and kill all its people as Iran, especially its president, has repeatedly stated his avowed aim is especcially Israel. When Nasser said he will drive the Jews into the sea in 1967, the Israelis believed him and they struck first, rightfully so and defeated all the Arab armies . The same thing happened in 1973 and will happen again if Israel feels that its security is threatened. So who is doing the threatening and who is doing the defending here?

  3. “Non-aligned movement”: all member states must not form alliances with major world powers, such as the US or Russia ????……….Does that even make any sense ??………..Member states must not form alliances with world powers, yet, form an alliance which is not allied with world powers ??!!……..this is basically a movement against world powers, a movement which, subject to its capacity, wants to create a collection of states to shift the power balance from major world powers. It is ironic that Iran wants to host the Non-aligned movement in Tehran when it has been supported indirectly and directly by the foreign policies of world powers at times and even has received technical and scientific assistance to develop its current Nuclear program from a world power !!!! Imperial, authoritarian, national and personal interests have unfortunately superseded humanity and the prosperity of mankind, whether its Iran or any other state…….

  4. What is UN without 132 countries?Iran has not nuclear weapon program,this is said by all american security agencies.The lie about Iranian intention to get nuclear weapon circulates already from more than 20 years.The sanctions against Iran were gotten by american manipulation of UN.So,the conference of NAM in Tehran is at the suit moment.Yes,is a lot of racism in the world,and the more blatant is anglo=saxon and Jewish or of the Western countries racism.The article could at least mention that Iran is a NRP member and US and Israel are in br4each with the treat for nonproliferation..

  5. iran has not attacked any country for tow thousand ywars’ but the salafist and wahhabi saudi terrorists’ but the shiites peace comrade mrykah.-mrykah media lies and false news about the citizens of iran’s 7000 years old

    • What about Iran’s direct assistance of the Nazi’s in World War II? Is that what you mean by peaceful? Are you proud of that? What about Iran’s Republican Guard Quds force collaborating with Hezbollah to blow up the Khobar Towers and killing American service members in Saudi Arabia? What about Iran supporting Shia death squads in Iraq? How about Hezbollah in Lebanon and the assassination of the country’s president? Syria anyone?

  6. It is important to note that the word Iran should not be mixed with the Islamic Republic regime (Mullah’s regime). The regime is using this summit solely for gaining recognition in the International community which has none or very little at this time. It is very important for everyone to understand that it is the regime which is seeking nuclear bomb not Iran nor the Iranian people. Any action that is taken should be for changing the regime in Iran and not just temporary stopping the regime’s nuclear program.

  7. Get ready for the big change within NAM chaired under the stewardship of the Guardian Counsel of Iran; that is – going from the Non-aligned Movement to the Nuts And Maniacs confederation of genocidal want a-be’s and the tools of terrorists.

  8. Americans are the first to use nuclear bomb,they are always invading foreign countries,meddling in sovereign nations,supporting terrorists organizations while the crimes of the zionists regime is as crystal as clear.What moral right do they have to lecture anyone about justice? What you guys hate is Independence and Iran will continue to be a beacon of hope to all freedom seeking nations,they will never vow down before any arrogant or tyrant.

    • Could you name one crime committed by the “Zionists”? Ask any Arab (not Jew) now living in Israel if they would rather be living in Iran. Would you like to live there? A beacon of hope? Don’t make me laugh!

    • Yes we used the bomb against sneaky radical country saving a million American lives & many Japanese , Furthermore much like Iran ,Iraq did follow UN orders & unlike IRAN we are not using proxies to fight their radical terrorist ambitions Go peddle your Kool-aid somewhere else

    • you cannot actually be serious. that is such a moronic comment. you sir need an education of what iran is about not what the government is about and to stop believing all the BS that the ‘world press’ feed you.

      • To you sir I reply I was referring to the Government not the people, And I don’t how edication you have but you are drinking Iranian kool-aid or a muslim radical

      • Yes you are right about the Iranian people. The vast majority of them detest the mullahs and other stoneage idiots comprising the Islamic theocracy who now rule Iran. Most of them would even be friendly towards Israel if these idiots were not in power. The Jews and the ancient Persians go back thousands of years when the Persian emperor permitted the Jews to return to their ancient homeland (or “occupied territory” as many people today choose to call it) and rebuild the Temple after they defeated the Babylonians who sacked the First Temple.

      • You and your presidents and your new born Christians belong more evidently to the stone age time.And the Jewish rabies even the stone age period don’t reach.Shut up and learn to respect others and begin teach first yourself and only after go to lecture for others

  9. As long as people follow their Political leaders, there would always be wars — because as George Carlin puts it; they want to tell the other guy that my dick is bigger!
    How shameful that in the name of Divine and by use of Talmud, Sharieh, Resaleh, …. [all words of men over the words of Divine] we slaughter others beings and we feel good about it!
    (just Google/Youtube Talmud, Sharieh, Resaleh, …] mand be amazed by the hate!

    • That is precisely why religion was invented, to proclaim that “my god is better than your god” to justify taking over over peoples’ lands and possessions and killing them in the name of Allah, Buddah, Christ, Yahweh, or whatever else you call your god.

  10. The discrepancy between Western media on the Middle East and the reality is astounding. Egypt’s Mubarak is a good guy and reliable ally until, presto, he is a bad guy, corrupt, a tyrant, yesterday’s goods. This extreme myopia in the interests of empire is the case across the board. So it should come as no surprise, that ‘Axis of Evil’ Iran, supposedly just itching to build atomic bombs and terrorize one and all, has good relations — getting better all the time — not only its neighbours Afghanistan (reconstruction aid plus a new rail link from Herat to the Persian Gulf) and Pakistan (the gas Peace Pipeline), but its not-so-friendly rivals Saudi Arabia and now Egypt.

  11. As you know non-aligned leaders meet later this week in Tehran, it seems time for plain speaking — and warning. Official statements by Israel and the U.S. assert, with cavalier nonchalance, that the “military option” against Iran is “on the table.”

    Thus, Israel and the U.S. are, de facto, in open violation of Article 2(4) of the U.N. Charter, which prohibits not only the use of force but also the threat to use force against a country from which there is no imminent danger. Sadly, after such threats it can be a short step to the actual use of force, as we observed in the lead-up to the illegal attack on Iraq in March 2003.

    The U.S. corporate-owned media is highlighting the same kind of “fixed” intelligence and facts used exactly 10 years ago to “justify” the attack on Iraq. Even though in January both Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and his Israeli counterpart, Ehud Barak, acknowledged that Iran is NOT working on a nuclear weapon, military action is still being blithely promoted as one option to deal with Iran’s “nuclear ambitions.”

    • Wait, wait, wait… as I recall, Iran’s official position on Israel is what? Oh yeah, that it needs to be “wiped off the map” and that it is not a legitimate country. As far as the UN rules, interesting your citation fails to note that Iran is and has for years refused to honor UN inspections. Sure inspectors came in and “got a look around,” but as soon as they asked for additional access to where intelligence agencies believed Iran was working on centrifuges, the Iranians denied the inspectors access.

    • Ran out of room replying, but add to that the recent attack on Israeli tourists linked to Hezbollah, and the fact that Iranians are supporting the Syrian governments killing of its own people. And, since you like to cite the UN, here’s something reported by Bloomberg News and the Frontline: The United Nations prosecutor investigating the killing of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafiq Hariri filed his indictment after tensions over the probe brought down the country’s government last week….French media reported Sunday that the International Lebanon Tribunal will charge Iran and Hezbollah with the assassination of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafiq al-Hariri while former Iranian president Abol Hassan Bani Sadr said Iran is expected to liquidate Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah when the report comes out.

  17. Reality: Iran has not launched an aggressive war in modern history (unlike the US or Israel), and its leaders have a doctrine of “no first strike.” This is true of Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, as well as of Revolutionary Guards commanders.

    • I can’t say I agree with the U.S war against Iraq, but as far as Israel is concerned, when did they launch an “aggressive war”? Have you ever hear Israel say it would wipe Iran off the map and slaughter all its people like the Iranian president has done on numerous occasions with regard to Israel? As far as 1967 is concerned, if Israel had not struck first when Nasser proclaimed he would “drive the Jews into the sea”, that probably would have happened. Do you call that an “aggressive war”? If you recall correctly the Arabs launched the Yom Kippur war in 1973 and if Nixon and Kissinger hadn’t stopped Israel when it recovered from the initial defeats, Israeli forces would have reached Cairo. The last thing Israel wants is war and if the Arabs would renounce their aim of wiping out Israel, they would gain much in science, technology, agriculture, and finally come out of the dark ages.

  18. The Iranian government is celebrating the capture of Abdolmalek Rigi, the leader of a violent group called Jundullah (Arabic for Soldiers of God), which Tehran says is a terrorist organization supported by the United States, Great Britain and Israel.

    Jundullah is one of several groups that have been conducting bombings and other violent attacks against Iran’s Islamic regime with the aim of knocking it off balance.

    In a July 7, 2008, article for The New Yorker magazine, investigative journalist Seymour Hersh quoted Robert Baer, a former CIA clandestine officer who worked in South Asia and the Middle East for nearly two decades, as saying that Jundullah was one of the militant groups in Iran benefiting from U.S. support.

    Hersh also reported that President George W. Bush signed an intelligence finding in late 2007 that allocated up to $400 million for covert operations intended to destabilize Iran’s government, in part, by supporting militant organizations.

    Who’s the real culprit here? & why is usa & isreal supporting & funding terrorists inside Iran. Who’s killed more innocent people in wars around the world. Who’s the biggest terrorist in the world?

  19. Those who mischievously called Iran a part of the so-called “Axis of Evil” and put its name in their fabricated list of the state sponsors of terrorism – the list from which the name of Saddam Hussein’s Baathist regime was removed in 1982 so that the United States and its European stooges could rationalize their unjustified, immoral and insane war against Iran – have blatantly forgotten that Iran has been long one of the guiltless victims of terrorism, sponsored by the United States, Israel, UK and their puppets in the Middle East.

  20. With the sponsorship of the United States, Jundallah had previously carried out a series of atrocious, bloody massacres in Iran which claimed the lives of 165 Iranians, including several police forces and IRGC commanders. The December 14, 2010 bombing in Chabahar in which 39 Iranian citizens were martyred while attending a mourning ceremony for Imam Hussein (PBUH) was the latest felony carried out by this terrorist gang.
    The European Parliament last year removed the name of MKO from its designated list of terrorist organizations. From the 27 members of the European Union, only a few condemned the last terrorist attacks in Chabahar. The world is witness to the exercise of double standards by the United States and its European allies with regards to human rights and terrorism.
    Let’s be frank and answer this question by referring to our conscience. Aren’t the United States and its European allies the implicit state sponsors of terrorism? Isn’t Iran an innocent victim of state-sponsored terrorism?

    • And I suppose that “innocent Iran” is not a sponsor of terrorism, right? Have you ever heard of Hezbullah, Hamas, to name just a few? Guess who arms, trains, and sponsors them>

      • It’s the same people who are killing the Iranian nuclear scientists.
        The families of nuclear scientists from Iran who were assassinated in 2010 have filed a lawsuit against Israel, the U.S. and Britain, saying the countries are responsible for the deaths of their loved ones.
        Rahim Ahmadi Roshan, father of Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan, the slain chemistry expert and a director of the Natanz uranium enrichment facility in central Iran, said the families are demanding those behind the killings should be brought to justice.
        At a press conference in Tehran today, he said: ‘We’ve filed an indictment against the Zionist regime and the arrogant powers.
        ‘(The judiciary) is to pursue this case with the relevant international bodies.’
        Earlier this month, Iran’s state television broadcast the purported confessions of 14 suspects held in connection with the killing of five nuclear scientists since 2010.

      • Sir,you waste your time with people so brainwashed that that see that Iraq was a danger and a threat for US and US only defended,they see that Libya was a threat ,they see that Iran is the aggressor and threat for the Planet,with the help of two other power:Hizballah and Hamas and Israel with 400 hundreds nuclear weapon is the victim of Palestinians and Islam,and US with thousands are victims of these “imperialists” forces.

  21. According to the investigative journalist Seymour Hersh, former Jundallah’s leader Abdolmalek Rigi had received great amounts of money and military training from the United States. In his confessions which were aired on several TV channels around the world, Rigi revealed upon being arrested by the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps that he has been under the patronage of the United States for a long time and received weaponry, military training and money from the US-linked sources in Pakistan and Afghanistan on a regular basis. In a New Yorker article dated July 7, 2008, Hersh wrote that ” The CIA and Special Operations communities also have long-standing ties to two other dissident groups in Iran: the Mujahideen-e-Khalq, known in the West as the MEK, and a Kurdish separatist group, the Party for a Free Life in Kurdistan, or PJAK.”
