The Iranian ambassador to the UN complained that the UN Security Council has done nothing to stop Israel's "unlawful and dangerous threats" against Iran, in a letter to the secretary-general circulated Monday. Javad Zarif protested a recent statement from Deputy Prime Minister Shaul Mofaz that Israel has not ruled out military action against Iran to disable its nuclear program. He also referred to a similar statement that Prime Minister Ehud Olmert made in April. "I wish to inform you that, emboldened by the absence of any action by the Security Council, various Israeli officials have unabatedly continued to publicly and contemptuously make unlawful and dangerous threats of resorting to force against the Islamic Republic of Iran," Zarif said in the letter, dated June 11. He also sent a copy to the president of the Security Council.
