sad article

I just read this article in CNN Iran leader: Move Israel to Europe and it floored me. For those who are to lazy to click on the link and the entire article, here are some highlights, with my commentary.

Basically the Iranian President has repeatedly denied the Holocaust. He called it a sham, and if Hitler did indeed kill a few Jews, it was blown out of proportion so that the Jews would get backing from the west to start up a land of Israel.

He then decided that If other people want to say that there was a Holocausts instead of kicking out the Palestinians from there home, Israel should just pick up and move to Europe, maybe Germany, or Austria, that reward would fit the crime of this so called Holocaust.

He wanted to know what makes Israel a land for Jews:
"The question is, where do those who rule in Palestine as occupiers come from? Where were they born? Where did their fathers live? They have no roots in Palestine but they have taken the fate of Palestine in their hands."

Obviously this guy didn't do his homework on world history, I'm pretty sure it's well known that Jews lived in Israel first. Isn't Mecca the holy land to all Arabs, including Palestinian. Why not rebuild Palestine there?

Shu, you're trying to be logical where logic and truth does not play a factor. To him and many other Arabs and Palestinians, these questions and his recantation of history is perfectly legitimate and the truth. Did you know Abbas wrote his dissertation on how the holocaust never happened. In reality, they want us to move back to Europe, have Germany reopen Auchwitz and the other camps, and send us all packing to hell. People like the Iranians don't like to think about the fact that they used to have a huge Jewish community in their land. It's a blot on their history. They'd rather believe that we all came from the shtetl, so that's where we all should go. And, forget the fact that all Palestinians ALSO came from somewhere else. I'm rambling, but the point is don't try and play logic with these people. It just won't work. They don't play by those rules.
