A rally was held in New York City Thursday evening marking the thirtieth anniversary of the United Nations' "Zionism is Racism" resolution. Michael Herzog, son of then-ambassador to the UN and later president of Israel Chaim Herzog, participated in the rally. Herzog followed his father's example by reading the text of the resolution from the speakers' podium, Israel Radio reported. He then read the text of the speech of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmedinejad. US ambassador to the UN John Bolton was also present at the rally.
