Tiny Churchill

Guess who said the following at the UN re A-jad's appearance there:
'President Ahmadinejad is entitled to believe in, and regurgitate, whatever intellectual, philosophical or theological concoctions his unique mind may fabricate...

'However, I do not agree that any one of us should disregard basic rules and practices of conduct among leaders and utter obscenities in this august assembly.'
Was it Barack Obama? Don't be silly. He would never say anything so forceful and clear, so "un-nuanced." No, this Churchillian pronouncement was uttered by the president of tiny East Timor, who, unlike Obama, isn't a mealy-mouthed outreacher looking to keep the door open for "negotiations" with nuke-making madmen.
