Iran Denies Holocaust to Deny Israel
By Micah Halpern

Sunday September 24, 2006

I've Been Thinking:

Did anyone else notice that Ahmadinejad often spoke about Israel, but never mentioned it by name?
He called it the Zionist entity.
He referred to Israelis as Zionists.
He never said Israel.

And yet - the rationale for Ahmadinejad's rejection of the Holocaust and for his revision of WWII history is based on his rejection of - you got it, Israel.

Ahmadinejad's logic works like this: If there was no Holocaust then there is no justification for Israel. If there is no justification for Israel then the very existence of Israel is a moral travesty. So why mention it? Of course, he's wrong.

First, there was a plan by Hitler's Germany to murder all the Jews.
Second, Israel was already on the path towards creation pre - Holocaust, neither the Holocaust nor the UN created it.
But it all fits very nicely into Ahmadinejad's conspiracy theory.
He truly believes that the West is in cahoots against Islam.
