The Divider-In-Chief Can Have Success
A one-day summit of eight majority Muslim nations has ended with a statement of support for the development of nuclear energy for peaceful purposes.
The statement was warmly welcomed by one of the Muslim leaders at the summit, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
President Ahmadinejad, seemingly emboldened by the Bali declaration, thanked fellow D-8 member nations for their support.
'I would like to take this chance to thank member states of the D-8 for committing themselves to defend the peaceful use and the development of nuclear energy for peaceful purposes, which has been enshrined in the Bali declaration,' he said.
The Bali declaration agreed members should cooperate to develop alternative energy sources, including the use of nuclear energy for peaceful purposes.
That means we now have at least 3 distinct camps. The US and its European allies demand Iran halt its uranium enrichment program or face sanctions and eventual invasion. Iran's Muslim neighbors are siding with Iran. Russia and China are somewhere in the middle.
