President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad har nok en gang kommet med utfall mot jødene og Europa på grunn av Holocaust og opprettelsen av staten Israel.
Han sår både tvil om Holocaust og legger samtidig skylda på Europa, og mener Israel er en spydspiss inn i den muslimske verden.
Også denne gang sådde Ahmadinjead tvil om Holocaust. Han snakker om flere versjoner, og mer enn antyder at Holocaust brukes politisk og at sannheten ikke har kommet frem.
Ahmadinejad added that although there are two official and unofficial versions of the Holocaust in Europe, «the issue has never ever been discussed publicly and instead turned into a red line (taboo) and irrevocable legend.
«If even no exaggeration in history and so many Jews have indeed been killed, then why are Moslems the subject of revenge and why does Europe not pay the price,» Ahmadinejad said.
Ahmadinjead forsøker å felle flere fugler med samme sten. Europeerne bærer på en stor skyld, og de skjøv jødene over på muslimene, og jødene fortsetter akkurat som sine overgripere. Ja, de er fascister, mener Ahmadinejad.
«One question to be clarified by the West is what crimes did they commit in those days (Second World War) what the Zionists are not doing today,» Ahmadinejad was quoted as saying by ISNA.
«Zionism is de facto neo-fascism,» Ahmadinejad added in question and answer session carried by ISNA.
«In fact the Europeans have practiced ethnic cleansing against the Jews in Europe by expelling the Jews from all the European states,» the official IRNA news agency quoted Ahmadinejad as saying.
«They have shot two targets with a single bullet — they have built a Jewish camp among the Islamic nations and got rid of the Jews from the whole of Europe.
«The Zionist regime is a part of Europe, which was broken away from Europe, and is anti-Islamic in nature,» he said.
The outspoken hardliner suggested that the international outrage sparked by previous comments in which he said that Holocaust denial was «scientific debate» and that Israel should be «wiped off the map» was because he had touched a sensitive nerve.
He asked why Palestinians who played no party in the killing of Jews in World War II should have been forced to make way for a Jewish state.
«Why don’t the Europeans who perpetrated the crime pay the price themselves?» he asked.
The president rejected suggestions his comments were anti-Semitic, insisting Iran made a distinction between Judaism and Zionism.
En ekspert sa til Reuters forrige uke at Ahmadinejad synes å drive psykologisk krigføring mot Europa. Han liker å få overtaket. Holocaust, jøder og sionisme er åpenbart et tema han føler er et ømt punkt. Spørsmålet er når Europa blir nødt for å foreta seg noe.
