A petition signed by 55,000 Christians from 128 nations demanding the arrest and indictment of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad will be delivered to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon this week, reported The Jerusalem Post.
The International Christian Embassy in Jerusalem (ICEJ) wrote and circulated the petition in response to the UN's ongoing failure to not only curb Iran's nuclear program, but to punish Ahmadinejad over his "hostile campaign of public incitement to genocide" against the Jewish state.
Ahmadinejad has repeatedly stated his desire to see Israel eliminated.
ICEJ Executive Director Malcom Hedding likened the Iranian leader's views to those of Adolf Hitler, and suggested that the UN today is responding to that threat with the same impotence displayed by the international community prior to World War II.
Ahmadinejad is scheduled to address the UN General Assembly in New York City next week.
