Various highly profiled Israeli diplomats plan to take Mr. Ahmadinejad to the International Court of Justice for what they believe as a violation of the 1948 UN genocide convention, to which Iran is still a cosigner.
An advisory document that recommends prosecution is 'almost complete' reported Israeli news website Ynetnews.com. The Iranian president drew international criticism with comments that reflected a desire to "wipe Israel off the map," Ynetnews said.
The UN convention describes any "direct and public incitement to commit genocide" as a breach of the convention. The same court which is based in Hague, ruled that part of Israel's West Bank "security barrier" were illegal in 2004.
