Peres: Durban 2 a disgrace

President Shimon Peres slammed Monday Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's speech at the UN's anti-racism summit in Geneva.

 

"Nazism had been crushed, but anti-Semitism is still alive. The gas has evaporated, but the poison remains," he said, speaking at the Yad Vashem service marking Holocaust Remembrance Day. Peres went on to say that the Geneva summit was a disgrace and that it marked "an acceptance of racism, not a fight against it." (Ynet)
