If Israel were to call for the deliberate destruction of the nation of Iran, it would be a violation of the United Nations Charter and of International Law. The full context of Tzipi Livni's statement below should be published and the nature of her apparent threat carefully examined in the light of recent reports that Israel is planning to wage illegal, aggressive nuclear war against Iran:
"The global Holocaust denial led by Iran is a political move meant to de-legitimize Israel, and it is unacceptable that a country that denies the Holocaust is accepted by the world as part of the international community[.]"—Tzipi Livni, Foreign Affairs Minister and Vice Prime Minister of Israel, as quoted in Lilach Shoval, "Anti-Semitism very much alive, says Livni", www.ynetnews.com, http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-3363734,00.html, (11 February 2007).
