Iranian President calls Holocaust a myth
I know that I wrote that I would prefer not to link to the sayings of whackjobs and idiots, but unfortunately this whackjob idiot is the President of Iran.
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Wednesday called the extermination of 6 million Jews during World War II a "myth," bringing a new cascade of international condemnation onto a government that is increasingly viewed as radical even within Iran.Hmmmm. You know, it would be a real shame if an Israeli fighter plane accidentally flew off course and accidentally flew over Iranian airspace and accidentally let loose with a pay load that decimated Iran's nuclear capability. But maybe we shouldn't rely on Israel to bail us out of trouble with yet another crazy Middle Eastern country's efforts to construct a nuclear bomb.
"They have created a myth in the name of the Holocaust and consider it above God, religion and the prophets," Ahmadinejad said in an address carried live on state television.
The speech in the Iranian city of Zahedan echoed the president's remarks at a conference of Islamic nations in Saudi Arabia last week, when he suggested that if Europeans established Israel out of guilt over the Nazi campaign, the country should be carved out of Europe.
