Israeli's remark prompts protest

September 10, 2008|From Times Wire Reports

An Israeli Cabinet minister and onetime spy who helped kidnap Nazi mastermind Adolf Eichmann and bring him to trial said the same tactic could be used on Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

Ahmadinejad has expressed his belief the Jewish state will be wiped off the map.

"A man like Ahmadinejad who threatens genocide has to be brought for trial in The Hague," said Rafi Eitan.

Iran's U.N. ambassador sent a letter of protest to U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.
