Iran's hardline President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said that if Germany and Austria feel responsible for massacring Jews during World War II, a state of Israel should be established on their soil. Ahmadinejad, who sparked an international outcry in October when he said Israel "must be wiped off the map", also repeated his view Thursday that the Jewish state was a "tumour".
"Now that you believe the Jews were oppressed, why should the Palestinian Muslims have to pay the price?" the hardline president asked in an interview with Iran's Arabic-language satellite channel, Al-Alam.
"Why did you come to give a piece of Islamic land and the territory of the Palestinian people to them?
"You oppressed them, so give a part of Europe to the Zionist regime so they can establish any government they want. We would support it," he said, according to a transcript of his original Farsi-language comments given to AFP.
"So, Germany and Austria, come and give one, two or any number of your provinces to the Zionist regime so they can create a country there which all of Europe will support and the problem will be solved at its root," he said.
"Why do they insist on imposing themselves on other powers and creating a tumour so there is always tension and conflict?"
Al-Alam said Ahmadinejad was speaking in the holy city of Mecca in Saudi Arabia where he was attending a two-day meeting of the Organisation of the Islamic Conference that opened Wednesday.
"Is it not true that European countries insist that they committed a Jewish genocide? They say that Hitler burned millions of Jews in furnaces ... and exiled them," Ahmadinejad told Al-Alam.
"Then because the Jews have been oppressed during the Second World War, therefore they (the Europeans) have to support the occupying regime of Qods (Jerusalem). We do not accept this," he said.
He also noted that European countries "believe in this so much and are so determined that any researcher who denies it (the Holocaust) with historical evidence is dealt with in a most harsh way and sent to prison."
The Holocaust was Nazi Germany's systematic slaughter of an estimated six million Jews between 1933 and 1945, mainly in the latter years of World War II.
Official Iranian media frequently carry sympathetic interviews with Holocaust revisionist historians -- who attempt to establish that the number of Jews killed by the Nazis was wildly exaggerated.
Iran refuses to recognise Israel.
Ahmadinejad said his second proposal was for "a referendum in Palestine for all the original Palestinians" to decide on the future of what is now Israel, the Gaza Strip and West Bank.
But the president said that "the best solution is resistance so that the enemies of the Palestinians accept the reality and the right of the Palestinian people to have land."
accordingly, Ahmadinejad and Iran should be propelled to Europe with their nuclear power
The obvious response is why Iran or the other muslim countries provide a home for the Palestians?
Move Judea and Samaria to Europe !?
How ! ?
I recommend Iran be moved to Antarctica.
Dear President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad:
Mess with the bull and you'll get the horns.........
"Some European countries insist on saying that Hitler killed millions of innocent Jews in furnaces and they insist on it to the extent that if anyone proves something contrary to that they condemn that person and throw them in jail," IRNA quoted Ahmadinejad as saying.
"Although we don't accept this claim, if we suppose it is true, our question for the Europeans is: is the killing of innocent Jewish people by Hitler the reason for their support to the occupiers of Jerusalem?"
This guy must be yet another Karl Rove operative, because every time he opens his mouth, he gives ammunition to the invade-Iran argument. The more he talks, the more likely he's about to get a cruise missile lobbed up his hindquarters.
Well, if numnuts wants to get technical, Israel was Jewish and Christian long before it ever had any Muslims in the area. Comparatively, Islam is a new-comer to the area.
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad ... how would you like Iran moved to the Moon?
And every dadgum "muslim" land was once Christian. Come the new Crusade, we'll let nummie have a dune somewhere. In hell.
I like the idea myself. Of course I like the idea of buying Baja mexico from Mexico and giving it to Jewish people to live. We could still fund them to the tune of several billion/annum and still be ahead of the game. Religious extremists on both sides are hell bent on mass destruction and that SUCKS!@!!@!@!!@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!111
Yeah I'm addressing a lot of FR when I state this.
What I'm saying I wish we had zero to do with the ME. Two entirely incompatible cultures. One will have to be destroyed for their to be peace. Like the Indian Nation was destroyed. There is no available compromise. The future looks mighty dim if we are forced to manifest our destiny in those lands.
Actually not. The Middle Eastern ones had significant Christian populations, but Indonesia, Pakistan, etc, did not. Indonesia is the most populous Muslim country. Pakistan was part of Hindu India until the Muzzies invaded India, ruling it for several centuries. I wonder how this Iranian moonbat would like it if Pakistan and Bangladesh were reincorporated into India?
May you wipe off Islamofascist Turkey off the map, having Western Armenia back to Armenia, Kurds having their Northern Kurdistan, Greeks having Cyprus, and Constantinople back in the hands of Christians?
Just my opinion...but the USA should have carved out parts of
the most desolate land for immigrant Jews (and other Europeans)
when Hitler and his buddies were telling them to "get out".
I suspect much more of the West would be blooming and we would have
probably had the A-bomb even quicker.
