NEW YORK (Reuters) - Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Monday disregarded a U.N. warning to avoid incendiary rhetoric and declared ahead of the annual General Assembly session that Israel has no roots in the Middle East and would be "eliminated."
In remarks to reporters in New York, Ahmadinejad also said he did not take seriously the threat that Israel could launch a military strike against Iran's nuclear facilities, denied sending arms into Syria, and alluded to Iran's threats against the life of British author Salman Rushdie.
The United States quickly dismissed the Iranian president's comments as "disgusting, offensive and outrageous."
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has hinted Israel could strike Iran's nuclear sites and criticized U.S. President Barack Obama's position that sanctions and diplomacy should be given more time to stop Tehran from acquiring nuclear weapons.
Iran denies it is seeking nuclear arms and says its atomic work is peaceful and aimed at generating electricity.
"Fundamentally we do not take seriously the threats of the Zionists," Ahmadinejad said. "We have all the defensive means at our disposal and we are ready to defend ourselves."
On Sunday, U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon met with Ahmadinejad and warned him of the dangers of incendiary rhetoric in the Middle East.
Ahmadinejad did not heed the warning and, speaking to reporters through an interpreter, alluded to his previous rejection of Israel's right to exist.

I'm sure there are a few Israeli taxi drivers that would love to take him for a scenic ride up the East Side.. with Obama next to him.
Kill these bastards while there is still time.
The problem is he is closer to that goal at this point in time than ever before. White House is the main reason for this.
"NUKE ME NOW!"
Somebody needs to update the doomsday clock to 2 minutes to midnight!
Waiting for the power structure to stabilize, before organizing for the attack.
If this guy doesn’t leave New York with a mysterious, terminal illness were doing something wrong.
Has anyone dutifully apologized yet?
Lets test it out!
Would somebody please explain to me what the U.N. is good for, again?
I keep forgetting.
Best. Advice. Ever.
We have Islamic taxi drivers now. They are in full regalia and will pass up my husband when I walk him to a taxi stand with my dog. They think the dog is going for a ride.
I always look for black drivers now: Haitians, Jamaicans - good people.
God, they should nuke him with Irish Spring. Does this guy ever take a bath?
"I'M A REALLY GOOD EXAMPLE WHY I SHOULDN'T HAVE NUCLEAR WEAPONS!"
Reuter’s are morons. That’s not a peace sign. That’s a V for victory.
Operation 10th Plague. You called it Dinner Jacket.
The United States quickly dismissed the Iranian president’s comments as “disgusting, offensive and outrageous.”
Did Johnny Cochran write this?
The administration had the same response to the video. So a 15 minute video is the same as a pledge to kill millions of Jews.
I’madinnerjacket may soon be discovered lying in a pool of his own nasty blood because of two expertly delivered .22 hp’s to his goofy looking forehead. Either that, or he’ll be just a grease spot stain with a couple hundred thousand other idiots, upon a sea of glass once know as the plain of shiner!
Go Israel !!!!
I think the best response would be a peripheral reference to the “partitioning of Iran”, without explanation. And then refuse further comment. Tehran would freak out.
“Israel is surrounded!”
Israel being surrounded is akin to Chuck Norris being surrounded. No matter what happens we already know how it’s going to end.
The people of Israel (Am Yisrael) and the land of Israel (Eretz Yisrael)and God are insparable. Jewish civilization was in full bloom more than a thousand years before the degenerate and psychotic Mohammed lived. Writers worldwide all wrote about the Jewish homeland. Only the big lie campaign of the Arabs in recent decades dares make such a preposterous claim. Jews have lived continuously in Israel for thousands of years. There never ever was a Palestinian people or homeland anywhere in the world; they are an invented people. The last place they lived was Jordan. They saw the desert blooming under the Jews in the 19th and 20th century, and migrated to where they could benefit from the progress being made by the Jews in their anestral homeland.
Just another bump in the road.
Yup. And one of the biggest reasons I want obastard gone - of the many - is so that the US military isn’t ordered to side with the jihadists (as is already happening in other contexts) against Israel. I don’t want America partaking of that bitter cup!!!
The White House hands Iran's Ahmadinejad a global megaphone Published September 11, 2012
But the Obama administration is not enabling Ahmadinejads warmongering hate speech just because todays state department lawyers assert that their hands are tied. Legitimizing the presence of the Iranian president in the United States on the world stage is a key tenet of President Obamas foreign policy. It goes by various lofty names like diplomacy or engagement.
Monday, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told Bloomberg Radio, when asked about setting red lines to prevent an Iranian nuclear weapon: Were not setting deadlines [W]e have more time to do everything we can to bring Iran to a good faith negotiation. Incredibly, Team Obama still believes that there is a chance that, Holocaust-denier, genocide-promoter and the man who claims that 9/11 was an inside job, Ahmadinejad will enter into good faith negotiations with the United States.
After hearing this LUNATIC RANT my only question if I was in charge would be HOW YOU GETTING HOME HOMMIE.
We don't support Israeli attack, US tells Iran 9/3/2012
0bama sent a letter to Tehran assuring them that the U.S. will do nothing to help Israel. That takes that off of the table removing a big worry for them that might have made them think twice. Iran is good to go now with 0bama's blessing.
So, I assume the Israelis have taken to the streets in protest and Jews all over the world are rioting and killing Iranian ambassadors. What? They're not? I wonder what the difference could be.
Someone needs to put some polonium in his tea.
this can't go on forever
U.N. or no U.N. that man sould not ever be allowed on U.S. soil for any reason.
To hell with protocol — as soon as he got to that point the speech, he should have been hauled to one side, forced to kneel down, and shot once right in the back of the head. The only reason he’ll leave NYC alive is because Israel doesn’t want to embarrass the US.
I’d add “alienate”, but the alien POTUS already did that.
Ahmadinejad Defends Holocaust Denial at UN; Israel Walks Out; U.S. Sticks Around to Listen:
Obama aided this antisemite in his quest for political and nuclear power.
He resisted support for the Iranian revolution while aiding war criminals in their rape and murder of Momar Gaddafi.
Barack Obama is decidedly pro-Islamist theocratic rule in the Muddled East.
The proof is in the pudding...
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
"...and first-cousin marriages."
Sublime. Just sublime.
