Addressing a crowd of Holocaust survivors and their families, Israeli and American diplomats and politicians yesterday warned of a 21st century holocaust if Iran’s nuclear ambitions are not thwarted.

The American ambassador to the United Nations, John Bolton, Senator Schumer, and the consul general of Israel, Arye Mekel, each pledged a commitment to keeping nuclear weapons out of the hands of the president of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who denies the Holocaust and has repeatedly expressed his desire for Israel’s destruction.
