Do Not Cross

While a significant chunk of countries left the hall for Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's racist tirade before the UN General Assembly, Sweden was not one of them, insisting that its "red line" was not crossed.

The "red line", apparently, does include Holocaust denial and calling for Israel to be annihilated, but does not include speaking of a "small minority" which "dominate[s] the politics, economy and culture of major parts of the world by its complicated networks." (Gosh, whoever could he be referring to!) An assertion of the blood libel would have made for an interesting dilemma, though.
