Opinion: Why the United Nations should walk out on Mahmoud Ahmadinejad

As the head of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, I should be the last person to criticize the President of the United States for mentioning Holocaust denial in an important speech at the United Nation’s General Assembly a day before the most infamous Holocaust denier speaks from that same rostrum. Nonetheless, I think the President missed the point entirely when he said, “the future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam. But to be credible, those who condemn that slander, must also condemn the hate we see in the images we see of Jesus Christ that are desecrated, or churches that are destroyed, or the Holocaust that is denied.”
