How ignorant of me all not to understand that when Ahmadinejad speaks about wiping out Israel, he is only referring to almost six million Zionist Jews, and that when he simultaneously denies the Holocaust contemptuousally and derisively for the genocidal murder of six million Jews, all of whom were not residents or citizens of Israel, but just because they were Jewish, he is merely joking. He is fortunate that his own family was in Iran at the time, because conversions were irrelevant to the Nazi doctrines of racial purity & contamination. Zionism is the right of the Jewish people to a State, so that they will never fall victim again to the capricious hatred of the Ahmadinejads of this world. This does not negate our own humane and ethical obligation to minorities within Israel and our commitment to peace with the Palestinians, and I along with many other Jews here are strong advocates of these goals. But please, enjoy your laughter. There is a new Holocaust Cartoon Contest in Tehran.
