From FoxNews: Iran Rejects Call to End Uranium Enrichment.

Iran on Sunday denounced as "illegal" demands from the U.N. atomic watchdog agency that it freeze all work on uranium enrichment -- technology that can be used for nuclear weapons. Hasan Rowhani, Iran's top nuclear negotiator, also said his country would limit its cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency if the watchdog refers Iran to the U.N Security Council for possible sanctions.

UPDATE I -- September 21: This cartoon appears in today's (Tuesday's) The Detroit News.

UPDATE II: And what was Iran's response to the U.N.'s empty threats? CNN reports: Iran 'starts tests on uranium'.

Iran says it has started converting raw uranium into gas for enrichment in defiance of demands set by the U.N.'s nuclear watchdog.
