But in the meantime they do have a Holocaust Denial Conference under way, and they don't care who comes just as long as they're both anti-semitic and willing to deny history in that cause.
Who am I talking about?
Iran. Ahmedinijad. A man not just with nukes ready to go in March (or so he boasts), but whose boasts include wiping Israel "off the map" -- boasts repeated on Tuesday at the 'conference':
"Thanks to people's wishes and God's will the trend for the existence of the Zionist regime is downwards and this is what God has promised and what all nations want," he said.As Liberty Scott says in his own analysis of the conference,
"Just as the Soviet Union was wiped out and today does not exist, so will the Zionist regime soon be wiped out," he added.
His words received warm applause from delegates...
Imagine if apartheid era South Africa held a conference on eugenics and racial superiority. This is the same. It should provoke protests, burning of Iranian flags and official condemnations from the Minister of Foreign Affairs to the Iranian Ambassador.It is the same except perhaps in three respects. First, the South African's weren't promising to wipe black South Africans right off the map. And second, the opposition to Ahmedinijad has been ... silence. And sanctimony.
