European MPs seek ban on Ahmadinejad

Jerusalem Post | European MPs seek ban on Ahmadinejad:

A group of European Parliament members is seeking an indefinite EU travel ban on Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad after he called for Israel to be destroyed and questioned the Holocaust.

A group of 75 lawmakers from all major political groups in the EU assembly signed a petition, which was submitted Thursday to EU president Austria and FIFA, the governing body of world soccer, asking them to prevent Ahmadinejad from traveling to Germany to watch his team play in the June 9-July 9 World Cup and banning him from traveling to any of the other 24 EU member states.
