In the resolution proposed by the United States and co-sponsored by more than 100 countries, the 192-member Assembly General "urges all member states unreservedly to reject any denial of the Holocaust as a historical event, either in full or in part, or any activities to this end."
The resolution, adopted by consensus, does not name any country but points to "efforts to deny the Holocaust, which by ignoring the historical fact of these terrible events increase the risk they will be repeated."
Diplomats said the resolution was inspired by Iran, whose President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and other leaders deny the Nazis systematically murdered six million Jews, calling it a "myth."
Iran drew international condemnation for its two-day conference in December to examine questions posed by Ahmadinejad over the Holocaust.
US Undersecretary of State Nicholas Burns described the resolution Friday as "an effective repudiation of President Ahmadinejad's baseless and gross mischaracterization" of the Holocaust.
Burns noted that only Iran disassociated itself from the resolution.
Although the Israelis welcomed the resolution, their ambassador had some pretty pointed words to direct to Iran:
Israel's permanent UN representative Dan Gillerman lashed out at Tehran during the assembly session Friday.
"While the nations of the world gather here to affirm the historicity of the Holocaust with the intent of never again allowing genocide, a member of this assembly is acquiring the capabilities to carry out its own. The president of Iran is in fact saying, there really was no Holocaust, but just in case, we shall finish the job."
It's what they want... to finish the Holocaust and remove the Jews (and eventually ALL infidels, but especially Jews) from existence. It's called GENOCIDE. Charles Johnson over at LGF regularly gets e-mails like this from Islamonazi trolls (this one he was able to trace to the UK to The British Study Group, which is an organization aiding international students in Britain):
jew lovers, any news on the next holocaust. Can’t wait personally, lets hope its more fun than the last one - haha!
This cancer obviously was not eradicated completely during the last world war. It appears to have metastasized.
