Israeli UN envoy walked out of Ahmadinejad's UN speech, but the US stayed

 If you want an indication of how far under the bus the Obama administration has thrown Israel, consider this. When Mahmoud Ahmadinejad got up to speak at the UN on Monday, Israeli Ambassador Ron Prossor stormed out.  Disgracefully, the American delegation stayed in its seats.
Israel's UN envoy Ron Prosor demonstratively walked out of a UN session Monday on the rule of law when Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad took the podium to speak.
"There is no justice and no judge," Prosor said, after leaving the hall with one of his aides.
"The leader of an outlaw country that is a serial violator of the fundamental principles of the rule of law has no place in this hall" he said. "It is a shame and disgrace to give someone like him the opportunity to speak on such an important topic."
Prosor said that letting Ahmadinejad address the UN on the issue of the rule of law was like "appointing a pyromaniac as fire chief."
Ahmadinejad is scheduled to address the General Assembly on Wednesday, but there will be no Israeli delegates in the hall to storm out when he begins to speak because it is Yom Kippur.


Ahmadinejad's UN address on Monday came after he stated earlier in the day that Israel has "no roots" in the history of the Middle East and represents a disturbance for Iran which will be "eliminated."  
Here's a report from Fox News, which clearly shows the US delegation staying in their seats.

Sorry folks, but this is not the sort of thing that makes me proud to hold American citizenship. I'm disgusted. Hussein Obama should be ashamed. Ashamed of his government. Ashamed of his 'leadership.' Ashamed of his warped and distorted values.

And where are the American people? How can the American people support a President who chooses a terror regime over a democracy?
