Another day, another crazed theocrat denying the holocaust and threatening to kill the Jews 

More sweet nothings whispered by Iran's President (link here):

European countries insist on saying that Hitler killed millions of innocent Jews
in furnaces, and they insist on it to the extent that if anyone proves
something contrary to that, they condemn that person and throw them in jail.
Although we don't accept this claim, if we suppose it is true, our question
for the Europeans is: Is the killing of innocent Jewish people by Hitler the
reason for their support to the occupiers of Jerusalem?

Let's summarise. We have the head of state of a UN member:
- Threatening the existence of another state (UN Charter ch 1 Art 2)
- Flouting a UN General Assembly Resolution (GA Res 60/7)
- And as anyone with brain-function should be aware, is leading an effort to develop nuclear weapons.
- Oh, and the head of state in question believes he is on a Divine mission, and surrounded by a mystical light when he gives a speech that relieves him from the need to blink (link here). So there goes mutual deterrance.

Isn't it funny that advocates for the Palestinian cause endlessly parrot ridiculous and offensive resolutions passed using the Muslim/"Non-Aligned Movement" automatic majority in the General Assembly, but ignore UN rules when they are not convenient (especially the more basic ones like not threatening to destroy other countries)?

Anyway, UN resolutions or not, it seems that when you have the leadership of one country denying the right of another to exist, wanting its eradication, funding terrorism against it, and simultaneously developing nuclear weapons -- you have a potentially explosive situation.

So I wonder if the UN's members and the august body itself will do anything, other than complain about their hurt feelings?

I'm guessing no.
