The European Jewish Congress is organizing a petition calling for Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's to be made a "Persona non grata ad personam" within European territory. The petition is a response to the Iranian president's declaration that Israel should be "wiped off the map" and his unending statements denying the Holocaust. The European Jewish Congress and its affiliated Jewish communities throughout Europe will be circulating this petition, which will eventually be submitted to the European Parliament and other EU institutions, as well as to member state governments. "Sixty years after the Shoah, the Iranian president must not set foot on the continent where he claims the Holocaust did not take place," a statement by EJC President Pierre Besnainou read. He said Ahmadinejad's repeated statements denying or casting doubt on the Holocaust violated laws in some European countries which make it a crime to deny that six million Jews were killed by Nazi Germany during the Second World War.
