The President Of Iran & Revisionist History

The president of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, has claimed that the Holocaust--Hitler's infamous "Final Solution"--never occurred.


TEHRAN, Iran - Iran's hard-line president lashed out with a new outburst at Israel on Wednesday, calling the Nazi Holocaust a "myth" used as a pretext for carving out a Jewish state in the heart of the Muslim world.

President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's comments drew quick condemnations from Israel, the United States and Europe, which warned he is hurting Iran's position in talks aimed at resolving suspicions about his regime's nuclear program.

The White House said his remarks showed why Iran must not be allowed to develop nuclear weapons. Germany, one of three

European Union countries leading the nuclear talks, called his statements "shocking and unacceptable."
Ahmadinejad provoked an outcry in October when he called for Israel to be "wiped off the map." When that drew international anger, he responded by holding large anti-Israel rallies.

Last week, he expressed doubt about Nazi Germany's slaughter of 6 million European Jews during World War II, raising a new storm of criticism. On Wednesday, he went a step further and said for the first time that he didn't believe the Holocaust happened.

During a tour of southeastern Iran, Ahmadinejad said that if Europeans insist the Holocaust occurred, then they are responsible and should pay the price.

"Today, they have created a myth in the name of Holocaust and consider it to be above God, religion and the prophets," Ahmadinejad told thousands of people in Zahedan. "If you committed this big crime, then why should the oppressed Palestinian nation pay the price?"

"This is our proposal: If you committed the crime, then give a part of your own land in Europe, the United States, Canada or Alaska to them so that the Jews can establish their country," he said.

Below are further comments from the BBC

"They have created a myth today that they call the massacre of Jews and they consider it a principle above God, religions and the prophets," he said.

"If someone were to deny the existence of God... or prophets and religion, they would not bother him.

"However, if someone were to deny the myth of the Jews' massacre, all the Zionist mouthpieces and the governments subservient to the Zionists tear their larynxes and scream against the person as much as they can," he said.

"If you [Europeans] committed this big crime, then why should the oppressed Palestinian nation pay the price?

Maybe, Mr. President, you should check your history. There are no Palestinians. Those claiming to be so are naturally Jordanian, displaced because Jordan did not want them. Even Yasser Arafat's own birth certificate shows he was born in Cairo, Egypt, not in Israel, or "Palestine," as is contended.

A myth? Seriously? Not only is this asinine, it is purely uneducated. If this were so true, then how do they explain the stories from the concentration camps. And I would like to remind Pres. Ahmadinejad that those were not just Jews telling those stories. The Nazis running the camps sang like stool pigeons when they saw what faced them at Nuremburg.

Add to the fact that we found the only remaining transcript of the Wannssee Conference--the one held onto by Adolf Eichmann, a key conspirator--where the people within the transcript were discussing the extermination of the Jews. (For those that would like a loosely based story on it, I recommend "Conspiracy." It was an HBO Original movie that the producers, director and writer used the transcript to reconstruct that fateful meeting. Thomas owns a copy of it.)

This Holocaust denial rhetoric has raised it's ugly head on more occasions than I can count. And it is even worse when it originates from a Jewish person. But those that deny the Holocaust's existence have been shown to be rabidly anti-Semitic. A brief run through on Wikipedia gives a glaring history of the Holocaust deniers from Friedrich Meineke, to Francis Yockey, to Paul Rassinier, to Noam Chomsky. These people do not just have a dislike of the Jewish people, but also share a common tie; they were or are socialists. And I would like to remind those that are as outraged as I am, the Russians mistreated the Jews in the concentration camps when they liberated them. So, it was not just the Nazis, but their socialist/communist brethren who did , as well.

This is nothing more than the typical anti-Semitic rants from the Arabs in the Middle East. They dislike Israel's existence. The Palestinians turned down a key opportunity presented by the UN under the Partition Plan of 1947 to have a homeland just as the Jews were getting. They opted, instead, to go to war with Israel. Each time Israel has been challenged, it has won, and usually wins more terroitory than it had previously. These people only want to be left alone. They are not conquerors like Hitler or Stalin. They want an opportunity to live in peace with their neighbors.

But terrorist animals have been pursuing Israel for years. And Iran has quite the little terrorist army built in Hezbollah. Pres. Ahmadinejad is rattling a saber he may not want to. The Asylum covered the statements made by Israel earlier this week about the necessary steps that might be taken to alleviate the region, and the world, or a possible nuclear Iran. They were serious when they took out Osirak. They are deadly serious when it comes to Iran's nuclear facilities.

The world reacted with condemnation to Pres. Ahmadinejad's remarks, as it should. We said once before "never again," and we mean it. The world can never allow another holocaust to occur, no matter who is the target of the purge.

Good blog. Iraq is on it's way to being part of this century but the president of Iran hates Israel just as arafat, the father of modern terrorism, did. Israel has every reason in the world to prevent Iran from having nuke weapons. Rawriter
