You're absolutely correct, but this is the usual propaganda that is portrayed to the world, namely, that anyone who is critical of Israel is the equivalent of hating Jews. I am surprised at Ha'aretz also for the misrepresentation of such facts. It is pretty obvious that Ahmadinejad;s criticisms are leveled at Israel. As for the Holocaust, I'm not sure why he is constantly accused of being a Holocaust denier, when the Holocaust has been used as a tool to shield any criticim against Israel and for Israel to carry out its own atrocities. The latter is surely the crime, and not whether one denies or questions an event.
