Iran's Pres. Ahmadinejad has called for Israel to be wiped off the map.
He has said killing Jews anywhere is always justified.
He has called the Holocaust a hoax.
Iran is pursuing nuclear weapons.
World War lll is underway and we need to be aware of it.
In 1940 Gallup commisioned a poll, the question was, "Should we declare war on Hitler?"
90% of Americans answered no.
They didn't think Hitler was enough of a threat to justify American soldiers being used to stop him.
The same type of language was used about Hitler then that is now being used to minimize the threat of Iran today.
"Ahmadinejad is just playing politics."
Here's a story you may not have heard, by the way,
Lawyer Registers Criminal Indictment against Ahmadinejad in
By Anthony David Marks
(IHC News, 14 May 2006) EXCLUSIVE - Attorney Ervin E. Shahar is an
Israeli citizen whose ancestors suffered terribly under Nazi Germanys
domination of Europe during World War II. Shahar has taken the
initiative to file a case in the German Court to carry out criminal
proceedings in absentia against Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad
for his brazen denial of the Holocaust and his urging Germany (and
Austria) to resettle all Jews in Israel to Germany and Austria.
Denying the Holocaust in Germany is an offense, punishable by law with
a maximum of five years in prison and a fine.
This recent action to indict comprises a seminal document in the
prosecution of antisemitism, drawing upon international, German law
and also on other historical precedents for the criminal conviction of
Holocaust deniers. It likewise effectively debunks with hardcore
evidence some recurring themes about Holocaust denial.
The lengthy document sets out the background of the plaintiff, the
nature of the claim, a detailed account of Ahmadinejad's offending
statements, a precise account of standard Holocaust denial themes and
a survivor's testimony.
Ahmadinejad's hateful comments against all those who suffered from the
Holocaust have never been challenged in court or by another
appropriate body such as the UN.
True, Ahmadinejad is an idiot, but he's a dangerous idiot, and we ignore him at our own peril.
