Ahmadinejad’s Anti-Semitic Rants in New York
Iranian President, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, is spreading his anti-Semitic, anti-Zionist and Holocaust denial rhetoric in New York. On Tuesday he told Larry King that more research needs to be done to determine the extent of the Holocaust. He said it is impossible to be both Jewish and Zionist, because “How can you be religious and kill women and children at the same time?”
Z-Word Blog points out that this is Ahmadinejad at his most moderate. In Iran he says things like: “They should know that regional nations hate this fake and criminal regime and if the smallest and briefest chance is given to regional nations they will destroy it.” He is trying to present himself to the UN and to the world as a serious and responsible statesmen. Instead, he comes off sounding like a raving lunatic. Our main concern should be the American public – it’s possible that people who are ignorant of Jewish history may think there is a grain of truth to his claims. And that is truly scary.
