NEW YORK (AP) – Nobel Peace Prize recipient Elie Wiesel says Iran should be expelled from the United Nations.

“I began a campaign for the expulsion of Iran from the U.N. and the declaration of its president as a persona non grata all over the world because he threatens a member state of destruction,” the Holocaust survivor said Thursday in a telephone interview with The Associated Press.

Iran announced April 11 that it had enriched a small quantity of uranium, fueling international concerns that it is well on the way to developing an atomic bomb. The country insists its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes only.

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has called for Israel to be “wiped off the map” and has dismissed the Holocaust as a myth.
