PUTRAJAYA, Malaysia, Aug.3 (SANA) Participants at the emergency meeting of the executive committee of the 56-nation Organization of the Islamic Conference vehemently condemned the constant Israeli attacks on Lebanon and Palestine.

<snip>

" The OIC is deeply concerned over failure of the UN Security Council to take necessary measures to impose a cease-fire in Lebanon and end the Israeli brutal onslaughts on Lebanon," the statement said.

" The U.N. Security Council is demanded to undertake its responsibility without any further delay by deciding on and enforcing an immediate and unconditional comprehensive cease-fire in Lebanon," the participants underlined.

On Palestine, the Islamic states' leaders demanded of the Israeli complete and unconditioned pull out of the occupied Palestinian territories including western Jerusalem, underscoring necessity of setting up the independent Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital.

They called for closing ranks in facing the current Middle East crisis and solidarity among the OIC states for confronting the existing threats.

...which the rest of the world is exceedingly aware of. This U.S. government no longer represents me. No way. I am ashamed of this country's role in the ME conflict.

--> Seems to me, the operative part, amongst the rhetoric, is talk of: "closing ranks".

Maybe ths will actually happen, for a while, this time round, the way things are going...

4. Iran cleric: Shut down Security Council
TEHRAN (Reuters) - The
U.N. Security Council should be scrapped for trying to make
Iran halt its atomic work while failing to stop
Israel's offensive against Lebanon, a senior Iranian clerical politician said on Friday.

The comments by Ayatollah Ahmad Jannati, head of the constitutional watchdog the Guardian Council, confirmed Tehran's defiance in the face of a U.N. resolution ordering it to stop making atomic fuel by the end of this month.

The West accuses Iran of enriching uranium for use in warheads. Tehran says it is only for power stations.

"They must close down this
United Nations and its Security Council, what kind of a Security Council is this?" Jannati told Friday prayer worshippers in Tehran.
