Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

You raise a lot of valid points but anyone that says:


Some European countries insist on saying that Hitler killed millions of innocent Jews in furnaces

(...)

Although we don't accept this claim,...

is profoundly irresponsible. Thr holocaust is not a "claim", it is a fact. Denying it is indeed a crime in several European countries and it is particularly obscene a thing to say for the Head of State of any country.

Now it is obvious that the Holocaust does not justify all Israeli policies, and that the ulterior motices of Europeans in bringing about the creation of Israle can be discussed, but you will never bring any sympathy to your arguments by denying the Holocaust.

By making such claims, the Iranian President totalyl decredibilises any reasonable argument against the current Israeli policies and actions, and against US policy in the region. So it's not just iresponsible and obscene, it is counterproductive and dangerous to all.

In the long run, we're all dead. John Maynard Keynes
