On Wednesday Nov. 11, 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.

In 2007, Herzog’s address was included in a revised edition of the book Speeches that Changed the World along with speeches of Martin Luther King (“I Have a Dream”), Winston Churchill (“Blood, Sweat, and Tears”), Nelson Mandela (“Free at Last”) and John F. Kennedy (“Ask Not What Your Country Can Do for You, Ask What You Can Do for Your Country”). Below is the text of the speech.
