Israel, US and Egypt: Attempt to boycott Non-aligned Movement...

Hillary Clinton and America’s pro-Israel lobby, AIPAC, that works with Democrats and Republicans on the American decision making in the Middle East, seem very happy with the provocative statement about Syria of Egypt's president, Mohammad Morsi.  But their 'success' in trying to boycott the Nonaligned Movement (NAM), is rather ridiculous.

As usual, AIPAC says that Iran 'stands isolated in the Islamic world in its support for Assad' while more than 100 countries participated in the NAM summit held in the Iranian capital Tehran.

This participation and the wide presence of high-level representatives at the 16th Non-Aligned Movement summit is a diplomatic triumph for the Islamic republic.

Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi has rejected foreign military intervention and foreign armament of opposition groups as a solution to the Syrian situation, saying dialogue is the only key to the ongoing crisis in the Arab country.

AIPAC: 'Egypt's Morsi Pushes for End of Oppressive Regime in Syria'

World leaders convening in Tehran for the summit meeting of the Nonaligned Movement heard on Thursday, August 30 two speeches that illustrate the deep divide between Iran and Egypt for finding a solution to the conflict in Syria, The New York Times reported. In one of his first major addresses outside his country, Egypt’s new Islamist president, Mohammad Morsi, spoke of an “oppressive regime” in Syria and said the opposition should unite in its effort to unseat President Bashar Assad. By contrast, Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who is a staunch ally of Assad, avoided the topic entirely as he addressed the dignitaries. Iran stands isolated in the Islamic world in its support for Assad, a status that became clear when it was the only nation to oppose the expelling of Syria as a member of the Organization of Islamic Countries on Aug. 14.
