    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?

Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn

Why Britain's Labour has become synonymous with anti-Semitism

When senior party members spout vile anti-Jewish theories and at the same time insist they are in no way anti-Semites, they are not lying.

The greatness of the late Israeli actor stems from the fact that her own unique persona informed the credibility of all the characters she played.

Alvy (Woody Allen) and Annie (Diane Keaton) in 'Annie Hall.'
Why is it hard to fall in love, and even harder to sustain it?

The answer can be summed up in one word, narcissism, which manifests itself in three principal ways. There are ways to overcome this love of self, however.
