called by Pakistan USA Freedom Forum

During the period of September 18 to October 1, 2012, heads of states and high-level officials from the world over will be gathering in New York to address the 67th session of the U.N. General Assembly.

Pakistan USA Freedom Forum sees this as an ideal time for all peace loving people to send a clear message to the UN and the world and demand:

(1) an end to all drone attacks and illegal wars;

(2) an end to the hypocritical use of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) or other agencies to selectively target countries for political, economic or military attacks.

Drone attacks by the US and its allies, which are increasing in use, have killed many dozens of civilians in recent times in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Yemen and elsewhere. They violate international laws, make it easy to separate the drone operators from the consequences of their actions, and difficult to distinguish civilians from others, and reduce victims to blurry images on a screen far away. Their use greatly contributes to the anger unarmed populations of small, poor countries towards the Western powers that carry out these attacks.

The use of the nuclear issue to attack the Islamic Republic of Iran is hypocritical. Iran is a member of the IAEA and abides by its obligations. In comparison, the state of Israel, is urging its Western allies, especially the USA, to attack Iran on the pretext of crippling its alleged nuclear weapons program. But Israel itself possess a large nuclear weapons program, whose existence is well-known even though Israel has never acknowledged it. And the USA, which also threatens Iran repeatedly, operates the world's largest nuclear weapons program, and is the only country to have ever used it in an act of war.
