Ahmadinejad Before The Council On Foreign Relations

Yes, our readers get a two-fer this afternoon. (My preivious post didn't take me as long as I thought it would, so I'm diving into the next subject, post-haste. It seems that Mahmoud "I Wanna Jihad" Ahmadinejad decided to drop by the CFR today, and spell things out for them.

HT: Hugh Hewitt

From YNET:

On Wednesday Ahmadinejad met senior US government officials at the Council on Foreign Relations in New York; the top American officials present at the meeting, some of them members of the George Bush senior administration, left with the feeling that a confrontation with Iran is inevitable.

The meeting was held despite staunch opposition from US government officials and Jewish community leaders.

Among those present were former National Security Advisor Brent Scowcroft and former ambassador to Israel Martin Indyk.

Robert Blackwell, who served as head of the Iraq desk at the National Security Council under Condoleezza Rice, said following the meeting, “If this man represents Tehran’s position, we are heading toward a massive confrontation with Iran.”

During the meeting the Iranian president again expressed doubt over the Holocaust’s existence.

“I believe more unbiased research should be carried out on the subject,” he said, despite the presence of business mogul and Holocaust survivor Morris Greenberg.

Indyk told Ahmadinejad that Iran is doing everything in its power to stifle Israeli-Palestinian peace efforts.

The Iranian leader responded by saying, “If you believe that Iran is the reason for the failure, you are mistaken once again.”

According to Ahmadinejad, the first ‘mistake’ refers to ‘the fact that the Palestinians are paying for an event they had nothing to do with (World War Two).

He said the Palestinians are not to blame for the killing of Jews during the Holocaust, ‘if it in fact occurred.’

“Sixty million people were killed during the war, why place so much emphasis on such a small portion of them,” Ahmadinejad said.

He refused to state the number of Jews killed in the Holocaust, saying the figure should be checked.

It's not bad enough that this man is still proclaiming his Holocaust denials, but to state "why place so much emphasis on such a small portion of them?" makes me want to puke. Why place so much emphasis on the Jews that were killed during World War II, Mr. President? It might have something to do with the fact that they were systematically removed form German society, starting with the Nuremberg Laws, and slowly moved off to the trains, and concentration camps to be murdered. The men assembled at the Wannsee Conference put together the systematic extermination of one group of people. And it worked so well that they used it on the gypsies, the Catholics, the Communists, etc., that were deemed "social agitators" by the Gestapo.

At the time of the conference, Einsatzgruppen death squads were already murdering Jews in Eastern Europe, but the Nazis decided that it was much easier, cheaper, and more "efficient" to use carbon monoxide and Zyklon-B gases. (For a more in-depth look at the Nazi's experimental efforts, take a look at the details provided by Wikipedia. And for those that dispute these facts, you're welcome to your uneducated opinion, but the fact remains that the Nazis attempted to exterminate an entire race of people during World War II because they believed them to be inferior to the Aryan race.)

Going back to "I'mALittleWhack-Job's" address to the CFR, if the man was any more plain spoken about his ideas and intents, you hwould have to swear he sounds like Hitler. He is obviously not impressed with the UN, and he wasn't "charmed" by the CFR guys. So, what does the world do with such a man? Will they continue to give in, and give him chance after chance? Will they say "pretty please" a few more times before just giving in? That seems to be the case.

I doubt the president will get the sanctions he desires from the UNSC, so this is going to fall to us, Britain, Australia, and a handful of other nations to hold Iran accountable. They can't be allowed to get nuclear weapons. If they do the world will suffer, either through nuclear blackmail, or a nuclear holocaust.
