    This is another really great read. It is a chance to really start putting some of these grand wedge issues into perspective. I look forward to your comments. Enjoy...

    JERUSALEM (AP) -- Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu lashed out at Iran Sunday for staging a Holocaust-themed cartoon contest that mocked the Nazi genocide of six million Jews during World War II and said the Islamic Republic was busy planning for another one.

    Iran has long backed armed groups committed to Israel's destruction and its leaders have called for it to be wiped off the map. Israel fears that Iran's nuclear program is designed to threaten its very existence. But Netanyahu said that it not just Iran's belligerent policies that Israel opposed, but its values.

    Sub-par trolling and pretty sick.

    This is one part of US policy that I agree with. We're waiting for the old guard to die off in Iran. When they're gone, the new kids will be much easier to deal with, and we won't have to kill 'em. I don't want to kill 'em. I've met some young Iranians. They're beautiful, intelligent, and their company is just plain endearing. By the grace of God, let us please see then end of the old guard.

    Anyone seen any of the cartoons or know who one? You either believe in free speech or you don't.

    I know of one Holocaust of WWII, and that is of the mass fire bombing of German civilians by British & USAF.

    There was never any mass murder of Jews by Germans during WWII. But jews want everone to believe that there was mass murder of their kind during WWII.


    A Holocaust denier? YES I am.

    I found a site with the cartoons, warning if you have been brought up on western cartoons you are going to find most of these pretty tame. Some creative ones and some which really are antisemetic(not the Zionist pretend antisemetic stuff but full on).

    Here are my two favourites,

    Seems like fair play then. If we [and France] can cite free speech to draw cartoons that offend millions of people, then surely they are also free to do the same?

    Very funny.
    3 of my grandmother brothers/sisters were murdered by the Germans.
    4 of my grandfather brothers/sisters were murdered by the Germans.
    My other grandfather first wife and kid were murdered by the Germans.
    None were war victims, they were murdered for being Jews.

    What about the mass bombing of British civilians by the German air force? What about the slaughter of Chinese civilians by the Japanese? What about the mass fire-bombing of Japanese civilians by the Americans?

    You’re not infusing us with a lot of confidence in your ability to accurately and honestly assess what actually happened during WWII so I’m not sure your personal opinion on the events most commonly labelled the Holocaust will be granted much credence.

    So you don't think Iran really means it when they say they want to eradicate Israel off the face of the earth? You don't think their word means anything even though they fund the groups whose mission it is to destroy Israel? Why? Is it because of Obama's Iran debacle which could pave the way for the annihilation of Israel and potentially the US one day? Think with your brain and not with your "feelings". The brain is smarter.

    There are much better ways to describe individuals such as yourself.

    I do not, I think some people there may want that, just like some people here want us to nuke Iran, doesn't mean we all do

    Iran doesn't believe in free speech the death sentence fatwa for Rushdie is still outstanding for example.

    I use to cry at all the captioned propaganda images about this hoax. Cried at movies like Schindler's list and cursed the "Nazis" under my breath and out loud. I was born right after WWII. Then came the Internet. The veil was rent. Many articles and books read. I went where the gatekeepers said don't go. The door is open. But you have walk through it. And ponder my quote below by Mark Twain...

    Wow. That's just pathetic. I seriously can't grasp how in today's age with today's free and avalible access to information there are still people so absolutely stupid as to believe bullcrap like this. It's mind boggling.
