The U.S. Senate passed a resolution condemning anti-Israel statements from Iran’s president, but without provisions calling for the Iranian people to exercise self-determination. The Senate passed the measure by unanimous consent last Friday, condemning Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s recent calls for the destruction of Israel and his denial of the Holocaust. But Democrats required two other statements — seeking self-determination by the people of Iran and seeking a national referendum there — to be withdrawn.
