Zionism is not racism: A speech 40 years ago

On Wednesday, a special event at the United Nations will mark 40 years since the historic speech by Israel’s then president, Chaim Herzog, in which he repudiated UN General Assembly Resolution 3379 – the ‘Zionism is Racism’ resolution – and symbolically tore it up before the assembly. The event will take place at the invitation of Yad Chaim Herzog and the Israeli mission at the UN together with members of the Herzog family, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and other guests. Below is the text of the speech.
