A rare case of moral clarity at the United Nations

"Yesterday, the man who calls the Holocaust a lie spoke at this podium. To those who refused to come and to those who left in protest, I commend you. You stood up for moral clarity, and you brought honor to your countries. But to those who gave this Holocaust denier a hearing, I say on behalf of my people, the Jewish people, and decent people everywhere: Have you no shame? Have you no decency?"

--Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, speaking to the United Nations General Assembly, Sept. 24, 2009
