those rude, disrespectful bastards! their actions only prove to the world just how true the words of Ahmadinejad are.

Supposedly, Ahmadinejad denies the holocaust ever happened, which is a bit out there. But that didn't figure in his speech this time, I don't think. Calling Israel racist is just as true as calling most countries racist. They have what amounts to apartheid there, with the Palestinians/Arabs being the shit workers to support the Israeli society. That sounds racist to me.

the official history we were taught in school is nothing short of propaganda, mind-control programming. there is evidence that the infamous gas chambers never existed! there is evidence that much of what happened during ww2 was orchestrated to pave the way for the one world government that still hasn't happened yet (because that plan contained some major flaws in reasoning). what happened during the "holocaust" isn't nearly as horrible as the genocide still happening to native americans, but we aren't allowed to talk about that. what we know of history is not true, has been twisted to serve a particular agenda. question everything you were ever told to believe, because there's a reason they don't want you thinking for yourself.

Hm, so how did they kill all those people? Yes, the native people in this country (and Canada, Guatemala, Australia, the Philippines, Hawaii, western China, etc.) have been killed and destroyed by the millions (I think there was an estimate that there were 250 million native people in North America at the time of Columbus). But denying one does not justify denying others. I know people who are Holocaust survivors, and they know that their relatives were starved, shot, and otherwise murdered.
As far as how it played into the ongoing plans to take over Palestine, that is another thing altogether.
