The House approved a resolution for the United Nations Security Council to charge Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad with violating the 1948 Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide and the United Nations Charter because of his calls for the destruction of the State of Israel.

The Genocide Convention of 1948 was passed by the UN in response to the holocaust.

The vote was 411-2 in favor of the resolution.

The two votes against this resolution were Ron Paul and Dennis Kucinich, the fringes from both parties.
