President Barack Obama called new Iranian president Hassan Rouhani a "moderate" in his remarks to the UN General Assembly on Tuesday. Yet Rouhani, who snubbed the president before giving a strident anti-American address, attended a rally calling for Israel's destruction a few days before arriving in New York. Ha'aretz reports: Iranian President Hassan Rohani took part in an event in which there were calls for the destruction of Israel just days before the United Nations General Assembly.
