White House Tapes: Kissinger says "Gassing Jews would not be a U.S. problem"

"The emigration of Jews from the Soviet Union is not an 
objective of American foreign policy,” the New York Times on 
Saturday quotes Kissinger, then the secretary of state, as 
saying on the tapes. “And if they put Jews into gas chambers
 in the Soviet Union, it is not an American concern. Maybe a 
humanitarian concern.”
Nixon replies: “I know. We can’t blow up the world because of it.”
