If Ahmadinajad denies the first Holocaust, he would probably call for a
first (If that is true which i doubt) and not another! Till when will
Israel carry this charade against Iran, I believe people are bored
hearing the same old Netenyahu and co tale
I agree with "who cares". UN has been losing it relevance for
decades now. It was almost silence when Sabra and Shatia atrocities were
committed "it was committed by allies, but do not forget some of
the H atrocities in East Europe were committed by local Fascists".
During early 1980s Beirut, and in early 21st century Gaza, were
surrounded by IDF and bombarded into complete ruins, which was carbon
copy of what happen in Warsaw, and so on. The fact of the matter is if
the Arabs were more united, especially those fat cats of the Persian
Gulf, they would have been able to fight their corner the way AIPAC,
etc. etc. do. As for as UN is concerned, it was losing it relevance for
sometime, but under Monkey Moon its creditability is almost gone!!
which would magnify the suffering of the Jewish people in WWII above the
sufferings of other peoples. The Holocausts of the 20th century
consumed nearly 300 million lives, and were mainly the work of the
Communists and the Nazis in various countries, with a number of small
time hitlers and stalins with lower case names contending as runners-up
in the rolls of infamy. By and large Israel's (ADL, AIPAC et al
included) Holocaust Industry does not want competition, but an exclusive
patent or copyright to the idea that somebody was victimized in WWII.
I don't see the ADL or AIPAC running to change history, deleting other
atrocities from the history books. You're the one making it a competition.
Without forgetting the Congolese people, whose number is now at 8
million people dead, all around the world victims of the Genocides must
Whatever one may think of the regime in Iran, and it seems to me no more
repressive (probably less) than most of the dictatorships in the Arab
and Muslim world which are deemed "moderate" in the West, it
seems to me that Ahmadinejad played into the hands of the enemies of
Iran with the stupid conference on the Holocaust. Although Neturei Karta
were invited and sensibly pointed out that the Holocaust is a historical
fact, nevertheless the effect of this conference was to associate Iran
with some of the most backward and worse elements associated with
Holocaust denial. To put it simply, the idea that the truth or falsity
of accounts of the Holocaust is a matter for debate is revisionist
nonsense. And the implicit idea that the legitimacy of Israel depends on
the truth of the Holocaust is also nonsense. Just because German and
other European fascists maltreated and murdered huge number of Jews (as
well as other groups like homosexuals, Roma and especially Slavs), has
nothing to do with the legitimacy (or otherwise) of Israel. Why should
the Palestinians pay the price of what was primarily a German (or at
least European) crime?
This guy can speak out when his own house is in order. Currently over
the past few weeks we have seen a large number of Palestinian youth shot
dead for matters that Israeli's would have recieved a warning for or
have been simply arrested for. Their deaths were deliberate and
unjustified as they were unarmed. Soldiers don't act without orders so
someone higher up has obviously said shooting Palestinians is okay. That
amounts to murder. Israeli's have moved from being persecuted to being
the persecutors. I remind them they said things like this would never
happen again. Time Israel's lived by their words instead of behaving
like the ideology that persecuted them,.
Did you compare that to the Holocaust?
when did this shooting of palestinian children occur? How many other
incidents like it has there been?
When Israel takes out it's enemies (Pslam 83), in the near future. Will
you still harden your hearts to the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob?
Is there any difference in the essence of the following two statements?
1) “Israel must end the prolonged occupation of Arab territories
occupied by Israel since 1967, including Jerusalem” 2) “The
occupation regime over Jerusalem must be erased from the pages of
When is the UN going to have a ceremony for the 66mil dead Russian
Christians or the Ukrainian Holodomor 8mil
Israel is always threatening to attack IRAN.IRAN WILL NOT SIT IDLE AND
PLAY GUITAR. IRAN has all the right to defence itself with each and
every means.This is afundamental right of every nation.So when you
attack ,you will be attacked.
Israel has already forgotten as it perpetuates a holocaust on the
Palestinians. Shame on the UN for putting one group of pampered
privileged people above another group. When will it remember the
Holocaust perpetuated on Africa by Europeans?
Tone it down there. What is inflicted on the Palestinians is far from a
holocaust. This is why UN doesn't take Palestinian plight seriously - it
is always trying to elevate itself to the level of atrocity that Jews
endured 70 years ago, and it is nowhere near.
Holocaust refers to the the mass murder or genocide of approximately six
million Jews during World War II. You cannot claim anything on that
scale ever happened to the palestinian side.
Murder is murder whether it is of 6 million or 1, 100, 1000 or whatever
number of people. It is always reprehensible under any pretext
