Prime Minister Kevin Rudd says his government is still taking legal advice on whether it will take Iran's president to the International Court of Justice for inciting violence against Israel.
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad had threatened to eliminate the Jewish state and the government was taking legal advice on launching a case against him at the international court in the Hague, Rudd said. Iran does not recognise the Jewish state, and since becoming president in 2005 Ahmadinejad hasrepeatedly provoked international outrage by predicting that Israel is doomed to disappear.
"It's not just hyperbole from the bully pulpit of Tehran, it's the roll-on effect across the Islamic world, particularly those who listen to Iran fortheir guidance," he said.
