Dear Ambassador Javad Zarif,
In reference to political Zionism and certain Western governments, President 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.”
This was a statement “heard around the world.” It sometimes takes a critic outside of a particular culture to bring to the world’s attention the hypocrisy and cant that is corrupting said culture. By making the preceding statement, President Ahmadinejad has done such a service to both Western society and the world at large, for he has exposed the hypocrisy and double standard that plagues Western society—a society that claims it supports freedom of speech and has no state enforced religions. President Ahmadinejad’s statement has been thoroughly vindicated.
Just recently, the famous evolutionary biologist, 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 of listeners in his British Broadcasting Corporation documentary. His arguments were given serious consideration in the October 22, 2006, New York Times Book Review. The book is openly promoted and sold at large book dealers throughout the US.
Let us repeat each of President Ahmadinejad’s statements: “If somebody in their country questions God, nobody says anything.” He is indeed correct. Respected Western Establishment sources have no qualms about promoting an atheistic book that will offend billions of Christians and Muslims. Dawkins’s book is literally saying that all religion and God are one big, phony delusion!
To quote President Ahmadinejad again: “ 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.” He is right again. These same, self-described “defenders of free speech,” who claim they have no taboos, would either publicly castigate or flatly refuse to give any air time to the arguments and evidence of Holocaust revisionists–academics, intellectuals, scientists and activists who point out the lies and exaggerations in the traditional Jewish Holocaust story. At worst, Holocaust revisionists like Ernst Zündel, David Irving and Germar Rudolf are sent to prison—with the cooperation and full assent of Western governments–while these journalistic/media “defenders of free speech,” for the most part, remain silent or give their silent assent to such oppression.
So when President Ahmadinejad said: “ 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.”–He is correct. The international Zionists, in collusion with powerful Western and now-defunct Communist governments, have fabricated a legend under the name of the “Massacre of the Jews,” and it is held much higher than God and religion itself. In Western society, you can publicly question and lampoon God and religion, but you risk being publicly condemned or imprisoned if you question the so-called Jewish Holocaust religion.
I would like to strongly encourage all Iranians to continue their examination and exposure of the lies and exaggerations in the Jewish Holocaust ideology. You have a vested interest in so doing. Not only is the Holocaust story used as an ideological weapon against European Christians, it appears as though Zionist ideologues are now going to use it against the Iranian people and the Muslim world at large.
In the January 8, 2006, issue of the San Francisco Chronicle, the ardently pro-Zionist writer Edwin Black made this statement: “Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has shot to the forefront of Holocaust denial with his rabble-rousing remarks last month. But it’s more like self-denial. The president of Iran need only look to his country’s Hitler-era past to discover that Iran and Iranians were strongly connected to the Holocaust and the Hitler regime, as was the entire Islamic world under the leadership of the mufti of Jerusalem.”
The implication here is that Iranians and Muslims are also “guilty of the evil mass murder of the Jews.” What’s next? Are the Zionists now going to demand that Iranians and Muslims pay reparations to the Israel “for their involvement in the Holocaust?”
In view of this, it is in the best interests of the European and Muslim people to continue to expose the lies and exaggerations in the Jewish Holocaust story, for by so doing, we are helping to free the entire world from the chains of an oppressive delusion. And when the world is freed of this “Nazi gas chamber” delusion, perhaps we can bring and peace and justice to the Middle East.
