Secretary-General of the Unite Nations, Ban Ki-moon, whose recent comments on capitalism and climate change have a storng anti-capitalism and andti-democracy undertone. Glenn put Ki-Moon’s recent comments from the World Economic Forum into context.
With Egypt on the verge of collapse, Glenn feels that there is a strong anti-Western sentiment sweeping different parts of the world. First, he tackled comments from the Ayatollah in Iran.
“All of these protests in Egypt, Tunisia, Jordan and Yemen are inspired by Iran’s Islamic revolution, and these countries are de facto rocked by the aftershock of the Iranian revolution, the ultra conservative cleric added. [The Ayatollah] says, in the Middle East soon there will be Islamic rulership and a democracy based on religion. He is saying here also that it’s the end of an era of the Western-backed dictators. And that is true,” Glenn said.
Glenn agreed with this statement, and criticized the US foreign policy which saw America back dictators that were at least better than someone who was “Islamofascist”. “We should have stood for freedom the whole time. But we didn’t,” Glenn said.
