Wiesel Joins Hundreds to Denounce Iran Call to Wipe Israel Off Map – Alec Magnet
Elie Wiesel, Richard Holbrooke, and more than a dozen other civic and religious leaders gathered across from the Iranian mission to the UN in New York Wednesday to denounce the Iranian president’s call to “wipe Israel off the map.” “When a leader of a nation violates all standards of morality and decency by announcing to the whole world his wish to see a nation member of the international community wiped off the map, our immediate response cannot be anything but anger and outrage,” Wiesel said.
