RESOLUTION

Calling for the arrest and prosecution of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad for incitement to genocide.

Whereas Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has called for Israel’s destruction and said Israel must be wiped off the map, and that these false people, these fabricated people [the Israeli people] cannot continue to exist;

Whereas President Ahmadinejad has dehumanized Israeli Jews and said They are like cattle, nay, more misguided. A bunch of bloodthirsty barbarians, and The Zionist regime is the hotbed for germs and cancerous cells;

Whereas President Ahmadinejad has denied past genocide against Jews and said The Holocaust is a lie, and They have invented a myth that Jews were massacred;

Whereas the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide was adopted by the United Nations in 1948;

Whereas the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide defines genocide and what acts shall be punishable; and

Whereas Article 3 of the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide says conspiracy to commit genocide is a punishable act: Now, therefore, be it

That the House of Representatives calls for the arrest and prosecution of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad for incitement to genocide.
