Rep. Jerrold Nadler condemned Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s visit to New York, calling the trip “a mission to spread ugly propaganda” and supporting protesters who gathered outside the United Nations. Ahmadinejad addressed the United Nations General Assembly on Sept. 23. The Iranian president drew criticism after his last visit to New York in September 2007, when he gave a speech at Columbia University that questioned the Holocaust and denied that there were homosexuals in Iran.
“We are unified in our condemnation of Ahmadinejad’s anti-Semitism and Holocaust revisionism,” Nadler said. “We condemn Iran’s support for terrorism and illegal development of nuclear weapons.”
