I see that Iranian president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, has placed the cat amongst the pigeons by claiming that the Holocaust was a "myth".
Now I despise Israel with my every waking bone, they have turned into what they fought against. The same racial and fascist tendency that is contained within Lebensraum is also integral to Zionism.
I fully support the Palestinians in their quest for freedom and Independence but to call the Holocaust a "myth" is just disgusting and as believable as Unionist claims that there was no widespread discrimination against Catholics since the foundation of the Northern "State".
The White House said President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s comments show why Iran must not develop nuclear weapons but I would love to know why Israel should be allowed Nuclear weapons.
I feel no safer with Iran developing Nuclear weapons that I do Israel. The US also needs to remember that it is the only country to every actually use Nuclear weapons.
So a little perspective here please lads!
I don't see the need for Nuclear weapons at all
Supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who has final word on all matters, has stood by the president, even calling this week for Palestinian militants to step up their fight against Israel to drive them out of Jerusalem.
Touring south-east Iran, President Ahmadinejad said that if Europeans insist the Holocaust happened, then they are responsible and should pay the price.
"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 US, Canada or Alaska to them so that the Jews can establish their country,"
I can, to a limited extent, see where he is coming with this one.
Why should the Palestinians have to pay the price for Nazi Germany?
Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesperson Mark Regev said "The combination of fanatical ideology, a warped sense of reality and nuclear weapons is a combination that no-one in the international community can accept,"
Then why Mr Regev are the International community still accepting Israel?
You are a far bigger danger than Iran IMHO.
In unusually strong comments, European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso said Iranians "do not have the president, or the regime, they deserve"
I do however take exception with this!
It is none of Barroso's business who the Iranian people elect as their leader; the West should keep its nose out of the affairs of the Middle-East. Mr. Barroso's time would be better spent doing the job his is paid to do.
Even if he is the President of a glorified Quango!
