    Canada will reportedly boycott Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's speech at the United Nations Wednesday in protest of his anti-Israel comments and repeated Holocaust denials.

    Foreign Minister Lawrence Cannon and other Canadian delegates will vacate their seats at the U.N. General Assembly's annual debate in New York when the Iranian president approaches the podium, the National Post said, citing an unidentified Canadian official.

    "President Ahmadinejad's repeated denial of the Holocaust and his anti-Israel comments run counter to the values of the U.N. General Assembly, and they're shameful," the official told the newspaper. "He uses his public appearances to provoke the international community, and that is why Canada's seats will be empty."

    U.S. State Department Noel Clay told FOXNews.com he knew of no plans to boycott Ahmadinejad's speech before the 192-member chamber.

    "I can't predict what [Ahmadinejad] is going to say," said Clay, adding that the State Department had no additional information on the matter.

    Why is belief in the Holohoax such a big deal?

    It is the only fantasy that the west insists everyone MUST 100% believe in.

    When it comes to the Holohoax, freedom of speech is not allowed or tolerated.

    Cool. If it's not allowed, then your post doesn't exist.

    Spare us the victim whine. You accept the consequences of your words or don't speak them. Your choice. The spineless whine about it.
