(Newser) – Benjamin Netanyahu didn’t hold back today when he took the stage at the United Nations. The Israeli PM went on a tirade, berating the UN for allowing Holocaust denier Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to speak. “Have you no shame? Have you no decency?” he demanded, after recounting the horrors of the genocide. “What a disgrace. What a mockery of the charter of the United Nations.” He also complained that the UN had been silent about Hamas' attacks on Israel, Fox News reports.
