Senators have introduced a resolution (S. Res. 574) calling for the International Criminal Court to investigate Iranian leaders for violating the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide.
The bipartisan resolution, introduced by Sens. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) and Kelly Ayotte (R-NH), strongly condemns statements by Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad that call for the destruction of Israel.
The resolution also calls on U.N. member states to fully implement existing U.N. Security Council sanctions against Iran and to impose their own sanctions against the country.
