Prime Minister Tony Blair
10 Downing Street
London, SW1A 2AA
November 3, 2006
Dear Prime Minister Blair,
According to a Yahoo news report of June 25, 2006, you were outraged by the President of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, because of his statements and behavior in support of Holocaust revisionism—the theory that the traditional Jewish Holocaust story contains lies and exaggerations. Specifically, the news missive points out that you called Iran’s plans for a Holocaust revisionist conference in December as “shocking, ridiculous, stupid.” Furthermore, you advised that President Ahmadinejad “come and see the evidence of the Holocaust himself in the countries of Europe.”
I am afraid, Prime Minister Blair, that your statements and behavior have actually lent great credence to the claims of President Ahmadinejad. Herewith.
In reference to political Zionism and certain Western governments, Ahmadinejad was quoted as saying: “They have fabricated a legend under the name of Massacre of the Jews, and they hold it higher than God himself, religion itself and the prophets themselves. If somebody in their country questions God, nobody says anything, but if somebody denies the myth of the massacre of the Jews, the Zionist loudspeakers and the governments in the pay of Zionism will start to scream.”
Now, let us repeat each of President Ahmadinejad’s statements, and then examine your behavior. He stated: “If somebody in their country questions God, nobody says anything.”
Just recently, the renowned evolutionary biologist, British citizen Richard Dawkins, had his atheistic, very anti-religious book, The God Delusion, published by the respected and mainstream publishing houses, Houghton Mifflin and Bantam Press. Dawkins was given time to present his atheistic viewpoints to millions in his British Broadcasting Corporation documentary. His arguments were given serious consideration in the October 22, 2006, New York Times Book Review and the September 23, 2006, Guardian Unlimited. The book is openly promoted and sold at large book dealers throughout the United States and United Kingdom.
Let us again repeat each of President Ahmadinejad’s statements: “If somebody in their country questions God, nobody says anything.” He is indeed correct. When your fellow countryman, atheist Richard Dawkins, publicly attacked God and religion, to my knowledge you did not publicly step forward and attack him and defend Christianity and Islam. Quite the contrary! You were silent!
Let us continue with Ahmadinejad’s statements; “If somebody denies the myth of the massacre of the Jews, the Zionist loudspeakers and the governments in the pay of Zionism start to scream.” Well Lo and Behold! When Ahmadinejad rejected the Jewish Holocaust story, you publicly stepped forward and vehemently complained! You labeled his plans for a Holocaust revisionist conference as “shocking, ridiculous, stupid.”
My point is this. Your very behavior has vindicated the claims of President Ahmadinejad. You remain silent when your famous fellow countryman, Richard Dawkins, publicly attacked God and religion in a British Broadcasting Corporation documentary and well publicized book. Yet, you publicly attack Mahmoud Ahmadinejad because he rejects the Jewish Holocaust religion. This suggests that the British government has indeed raised the Jewish Holocaust ideology higher than God himself, religion itself, and the prophets themselves—just as Ahamdinejad stated!
Finally, you challenged Ahmadinejad to “come and see the evidence of the Holocaust himself in the countries of Europe.” But Polish officials have stated that they will not allow the Iranians to come to Poland and examine and evaluate the so-called evidence for the alleged Jewish Holocaust. Once again, this behavior lends even more credence to Ahmadinejad’s claims. He stated: “They have fabricated a legend under the name of the Massacre of the Jews…”
By refusing to allow the Iranians to come and evaluate the evidence, Poland is lending credence to his claim that at least some of the evidence for the Holocaust is indeed fabricated, and Western governments are afraid that he will expose this to the world.
