Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has surpassed previous acts of
chutzpah and tells German television the Holocaust “was a colonialist
plan that resulted from a lie” that Israel exploits to suppress
Palestinian Authority Arabs.
Speaking through an interpreter to Germany’s ZDF public television,
Ahmadinejad asserted that Jews “never were rulers of this land. They
made a story named Holocaust, and the Palestinians have to pay the
price for it.”
He repeatedly called Israel “an artificial state."
The World Jewish Congress (WJC) urged Germany to recall its
ambassador to Iran to protest the statements in the interview, which
also was posted on the television network’s’ website.
“Over many years Ahmadinejad has been publicly denying the mass
murder of European Jewry, and few people still bother to react. His
conspiracy theories about the ‘Zionists’ are delusional and anti-
Semitic,” said WJC Vice President Charlotte Knobloch.
In the same interview, Ahmadinejad was asked about nuclear weapons
and took a “Who me?" approach. He said, “We would never build an
atomic bomb -- but if we did build one, we wouldn’t be afraid to. If
Ahmadinejad were to build a bomb, he would announce it -- and he
would not be afraid of anybody.”
With a straight face, he stated, “We are against this nuclear bomb on
principle,” and added that nuclear weapons are “amoral.”
“It would be very dangerous to believe even a word of what he says,
given that Ahmadinejad has misled and ridiculed Germany and the
international community shamelessly over the past years,” Knobloch
responded. (IsraelNationalNews © 2012 03/21/12)
