Holocaust Conference

An absurd but dangerous bit of history is being played out before our eyes. The stage is being set by one of the world most outrageous leaders, amazingly (perhaps sadly is a better term) he has followers.

The world never seems to have a shortage of madmen, today won’t be an exception.

The madman that I’m referring too is Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

There has been much in the news concerning Ahmadinejad’s upcoming Holocaust conference. It is difficult to imagine that anyone can take the conference or the participants seriously. It is certainly just a slap at Israel but it sends some disturbing signals to the rest of the world as well.

President Ahmadinejad has called the Holocaust a myth and stated recently that “Israel should be wiped off the map”

Personally, I’ve met victims of the Holocaust and the numbers the Nazis tattooed on their arms were not myths.

It appears that Iran’s resident madman is quickly painting himself into a corner. It also appears that the rest of the world is keeping a very close eye on his antics.

There are several excellent articles posted on subject of the Holocaust conference. One of the best was posted on SPIEGEL ONLINE titled “Iran "Is Making Lunacy Official Policy" the posting is an interview with Holocaust historian Götz Aly.

In the interview Aly deals with the Holocaust in a way that provokes thought, and offers insight.

Here’s an excerpt:

“SPIEGEL ONLINE: The Iranian government is planning to hold a conference to discuss the Holocaust. Would you say there are deficits in how we have tried to come to terms with the destruction of the Jewish people during the Nazi era?

Götz Aly: Academics from all over the world have researched the Holocaust extremely thoroughly. The murder of the European Jews during the Second World War has been looked into with more closely than any other aspect of the 20th century. Naturally it goes without saying that we haven't yet finished dealing with this topic, and that indeed it's not even possible to. There will always be gaps and, faced with something as traumatic as this, each generation will inevitably have new questions to ask.”

Here’s more:

“SPIEGEL ONLINE: An ideology of persecution is already part of Iran's political program. President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has repeatedly called for Israel to be removed from the Middle East. How should we deal with this policy?

Aly: As an historian, I am not really qualified to answer that. There are the usual political and military means. When you look at what is being concocted right now in Iran -- the nuclear policy can be seen as a complimentary part of this extremely aggressive stance towards Israel -- then the international community clearly has a duty to do something.”
