Yesterday, the man who calls the Holocaust a lie, spoke from this podium. To those who refused to come and to those who left in protest, I commend you. You stood up for moral clarity and you brought honor to your countries. But to those who gave this Holocaust denier a hearing, I say on behalf of my people, the Jewish people, and decent people everywhere — have you no shame? Have you no decency?
What a disgrace. What a mockery of the charter of the United Nations. Now perhaps, some of you think that this man and his odious regime, perhaps they threaten only the Jews. Well if you think that you are wrong, dead wrong.
Benjamin Netanyahu, September 24, 2009
