Oh, He"s So Right, Iran"s President Ahmadinejad
By Liora Ziv-Ami
When the Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad climbs
umpteenth time onto the podium to announce to the world his personal
views on us, Jews, I don"t pay the slightest attention to his

the ancient Greeks attacked us and called us phonies, claiming that

yelled. European atheists too were fuming with indignation on
of Jewish lies - these deceitful Jews invented the Revelation at Mt.

the Popes were forced at some point to speak out against these pagan
myths: their parishioners had become too uncomfortable with the
libel against the Jews. Alas, pagan beliefs are not so easy to
destroy. They have managed to survive to this day.
And suddenly, what a pleasant surprise! Iran"s
Ahmadinejad expressed a thought which wasn"t exactly original
definitely not one openly admitted.
Actually, this thought had occurred to me long ago, but
I"m just an
ordinary person, so the moment I made it public, I was promptly
shushed into silence. The President of Iran is a different story. He
has a vast audience - the entire world listens to what he has to
So the moment he began speaking on this subject, I jumped with joy.
Golly, here"s finally someone who thinks like I do.
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad spoke the absolute truth! He said

opportunity to do away with the hateful Jews.
I agree with the Iranian President in this regard.
is necessary to clarify some issues for this similarity of opinions
The Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad asserts that
the Jews fled
to the land of their forefathers only because of European
anti-Semitism. As the result, Europeans placed the Jews under a new
threat, this time from the Muslims. Many others agree with the
President"s position, from which it follows that the Jewish
would never have been created if the Jews hadn"t been

the Jews repeated it over and over again - those who lived among
Europeans, and those who lived among peoples of Africa, and those
lived among peoples of Asia, including Iranians.
Secondly, European nationalism has proved to be
contagious. That"s why, even in those happy days when the
and the Jews still believed in the success of emancipation and
assimilation, the voices of Jewish nationalists could already be
in the Jewish community. They expressed a burning desire, similar to
that of all the peoples of Europe, to develop their own national
culture in their own Jewish state. Incidentally, the influence of
Europeans was felt in Iran as well, where Iranian nationalism was

more mobile and were now more inclined to migrate from their
places. That is why the Jews began to return to the land of their
forefathers in greater numbers than ever before. Iranians too
experienced European influence in this respect. Only they began to
migrate in the opposite direction - moving from the land of their
forefathers into the lands of other nations and creating a large
In short, in addition to European anti-Semitism, the
Jews also had
their own internal motives to begin their long-awaited exodus to the
land of their forefathers.
What I agree with fully is Ahmadinejad"s
proposition that the
massive ingathering of the Jews in the Promised Land presents the
Europeans with a unique opportunity to implement their intention to
eliminate the hateful Jews, which had manifested itself with such
intense enthusiasm during the era of the Third Reich.
These words will probably rub Europeans the wrong way.
Wait a minute! Don"t we respect the memory of the

Enough already... It isn"t our victims Europeans
are thinking about
but themselves and how wonderful they are... They are trying to
convince G-d (and also themselves) that the Holocaust in Europe was
more than an accident, and that they, Europeans, are actually very
decent people and won"t do it again.
Who are they trying to fool?
G-d can"t be fooled. Only people can be deceived,
of them who wish to be deceived.
Those who don"t want to be fooled can"t help
but acknowledge that
the strategic goal of the Europeans has not changed one little bit.
What has changed is their tactics. Europeans don"t

their own hands now, but with other people"s - those of the

fighting over a piece of land being drilled so consistently into our
heads, we have almost forgotten that there has never - never in the
entire history of Muslim rule of the Promised Land - been such a
as Palestine or people called "Palestinians."
The name "Palestine" was introduced by
Europeans almost 2,000 years
ago, and, quite symbolically, this was done to erase all memory of
Jews who called their country the Land of Israel.
There we no "Palestinian people" consisting of
both Muslims and
Christians - and could not have been any - until the Promised Land
conquered by Europeans. This new model of "a people" was
Europe, whereas Islam traditionally recognized a totally different
model, known as the ummah, which meant "a community of

the British during their mandate, which, incidentally, was entrusted
to them by the League of Nations for the sole purpose of helping the
Jews to "secure the establishment of the Jewish national
home," as it
was then called.
But the British built a "Palestinian home"
instead by setting up a
"Palestinian" administration and placing the notorious
Mufti, Haj Amin
Al-Husseini at its head. The British looked the other way while this
"Palestinian" leader traveled around the world, spreading
to turn the Muslims against the Jews. But once the Grand Mufti
stronger and resorted to violence against the British themselves, he
was instantly subdued.
After Haj Amin Al-Husseini was expelled by the British

incorporated Muslims into the SS, lobbied extensively to prevent
from escaping Germany, and persuaded the Nazis to resolve the "Jewish
question" as quickly as possible. Hitler promised none other
Grand Mufti Al-Husseini to do away with the Jews in the Promised
as soon as the German troops got there.
Despite the fact that the Mufti's role in war crimes was
documented, he succeeded in avoiding prosecution by the Nuremberg
Trials - in this, too, he was assisted by the Europeans. They passed
him from hand to hand as a precious jewel, until, after a brief
of detention in a French jail, he ended up in Egypt, among his own

Most amazing in this similarity is the unifying role of

among the Europeans who sincerely failed to see these accords for

Everybody understood that. That is exactly why,
Oslo, the European press began to openly and unapologetically
how the world would look once the Jewish state finally ceased to
exist. Europeans no longer needed to mask there feelings or
intentions. When the French Ambassador to Great Britain talked about
"this shitty little country, Israel" he was basically
saying that if
only this "shitty little country" didn't exist how
wonderful it would
be! And his British colleagues understood him perfectly well.
It"s amazing how well Europeans understand each
other in everything
that brings destruction to the Jews.
"The Jews are occupiers of the Holy Land and
The Europeans vote "yes."
"Israeli generals are criminals because they defend
the life of Jews!"
The Europeans once again vote "yes."
A boycott of Israeli goods, followed by a proposed

and pushes forcefully against the fragile wall of European
with the recent bloody past. It remains only to wait until this tide
completely washes away the last remaining feeble disagreements with
the virulent campaign of attacks against the Jewish state.
How did we, Jews, deserve any of this?

accomplish in Europe during the time of the Third Reich.

Others could say that Europeans are interested in
stability in the Arab world. That makes no sense, since the very
existence of the "Palestinian people" threatens and

countries, every one of them faced the necessity to curb its own

actually the fruit of fantasy of the Europeans themselves.
They were burning not only the Jews but also their own
Church in the
furnaces of the Holocaust. And this did not start with Hitler. Long
before the Holocaust Europeans accused the Jews of imposing upon
their own G-d through the Christian faith.
Nothing has changed in Europe after the Holocaust. Quite
contrary, the Europeans have become even more adamant in their
rejection of the One who, atop the Mt. Sinai, strictly outlawed
everything that the inhabitants of Europe find so attractive: the

There is no doubt that the Europeans will support them

Land a great opportunity to complete the mission started in Europe
during the days of the Third Reich.
