International Symposium To Bring Ahmadinejad To Justice

The Conference of Presidents of Major Jewish Organizations and the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs have hosted an international symposium: Bring Ahmadinejad to Justice For Incitement to Genocide. The goal of the symposium, as stated by Irwin Cotler, is to bring
President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to Justice for the Public and Direct Incitement to Genocide in violation of both the Genocide Convention for the Prevention and Punishment of Genocide and the Treaty for an International Criminal Court.

The symposium is getting some media exposure too:
Outgoing U.S. U.N. Ambassador John Bolton and former diplomats from Israel and Canada called on the United Nations on Thursday to charge Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad with inciting genocide.

The U.N. International Court of Criminal Justice should charge Ahmadinejad for his threats against the United States, for calling for the destruction of Israel and for instigating discrimination against Christians and Jews, the group said.

“It’s important that if we are in this stage where we’re being given early warning, unambiguously, on what his intentions are, then it’s time to take action,” Bolton told a Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations symposium.
Besides Cotler, other International Legal and Diplomatic Experts at the symposium were: Ambassador John Bolton, Ambassador Dore Gold, Ambassador Meir Roseanne, Professor Alan Dershowitz, Hon. Dan Naveh, Martin Peretz and Dr. Ruth Wedgwood.
