Europe ignores Iran’s deadly mix of anti-Semitism and nukes
Europeans frequently view Iran’s genocidal threats against Israel as a way to make use of the annihilation of European Jewry as a catharsis to alleviate their guilt-ridden history.
BERLIN – Where do Iran’s quest to speed up the production of uranium centrifuges for its alleged nuclear weapons program and global anti-Semitism cross paths? Both processes are proliferating at an astonishingly fast pace, and are not being met by fierce resistance. Just days before Israelis observed Holocaust Remembrance Day, the Islamic Republic marked its National Nuclear Day last Friday, proclaiming its accelerated drive to go nuclear. Continue reading

In a rant that reeked of old-fashioned anti-Semitism, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Sunday that the “Zionist regime” was seeking to control the world.
Addressing the International Conference on National and Islamic Solidarity for Future of Palestine, Ahmadinejad said that the existence of the “Zionist regime” is an insult to all of humanity, asserting that it had lost its raison d’être. Continue reading

TEHRAN (Reuters) – President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad called the Holocaust a lie Friday, raising the stakes against Israel just as world powers try to decide how to deal with the nuclear ambitions of an Iran in political turmoil.
“The pretext (Holocaust) for the creation of the Zionist regime (Israel) is false … It is a lie based on an unprovable and mythical claim,” he told worshippers at Tehran University at the end of an annual anti-Israel “Qods (Jerusalem) Day” rally.
“Confronting the Zionist regime is a national and religious duty.”
Ahmadinejad’s anti-Western comments on the Holocaust have caused international outcry and isolated Iran, which is at loggerheads with the West over its nuclear program.
The hardline president warned leaders of Western-allied Arab and Muslim countries about dealing with Israel.
“This regime (Israel) will not last long. Do not tie your fate to it … This regime has no future. Its life has come to an end,” he said in a speech broadcast live on state radio.
Germany said Ahmadinejad was a “disgrace to his country.”
“This sheer anti-Semitism demands our collective condemnation. We will continue to confront it decisively in the future,” Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier said. Continue reading

Full text of Ahmadinejads anti-Semitic rant at “Durban II” conference in Geneva
“…The global Zionism is the complete symbol of racism, which with unreal reliance on religion has tried to misuse the religious beliefs of some unaware people and hide its ugly face. But what should be seriously considered are the goals of certain superpowers and those in possession of major interests in the world; those who try their best through economic power and political influence and wide media means, to lessen the crimes and ugliness of the nature of the Zionist regime….”
*Note the disturbing similarities to the anti-Semitic hate speakers and who are regularly presented on the UC Irvine campus by the Muslim Student Union. Continue reading
