The Iranian Thread: Part 44
I can't wait to see the results of this one. You know what's amazing? Ahmadinejad and his band of fanatics just have to focus on the holocaust...not the Armenian Genocide, not the Bosnian Massacres (which no one doubts), not Rwanda, not Liberia, not present-day Darfur...NOPE, Just the Holocaust and the Jews. I wish that the Iranian leader was more like the majority of Iranians who simply don't give a shit!!!
For crying out loud... Let the souls of the Holocaust rest in peace.
Iran plans conference on `scientific aspect' of the Holocaust
By The Associated Press
TEHRAN - Iran said yesterday it would sponsor a conference to examine the scientific evidence supporting the Holocaust, an apparent next step in hard-line President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's campaign against Israel and a move that was likely to deepen Tehran's international isolation.
Ahmadinejad already had called the Nazis' World War II slaughter of European Jews a myth and said the Jewish state should be wiped off the map or moved to Germany or the United States.
Those remarks prompted a global outpouring of condemnation, and it was not clear who would be willing to attend an Iranian-sponsored Holocaust conference.
Late last year, however, the leader of Egypt's main Islamic opposition group joined Ahmadinejad in characterizing the Holocaust as a "myth," and lambasted Western governments for criticizing disclaimers of the Jewish genocide.
"Western democracies have slammed all those who don't see eye to eye with the Zionists regarding the myth of the Holocaust," Muslim Brotherhood chief Mohammed Mahdi Akef wrote on the group's Web site.
Tehran had already further raised international concern about its intentions last week when it resumed what it called "research" at its uranium enrichment facility.
The International Atomic Energy Agency, the UN organization that monitors nuclear proliferation, said Iran was resuming small-scale nuclear enrichment, a process that can produce fuel for atomic bombs.
That, in turn, prompted Washington and its allies to renew their push to take Iran before the UN Security Council for the possible imposition of sanctions.
The U.S., its European allies and Japan believe Tehran is trying to build a nuclear weapon. Iran denies the charge and says its nuclear program is only for electricity generation.
Foreign Ministry spokesman Hamid Reza Asefi did not disclose where or when the Holocaust conference would be held, nor would he say who would attend or what had prompted Tehran to sponsor it.
On Saturday, however, Ahmadinejad urged the West to be sufficiently open-minded to allow a free international debate on the Holocaust. Asefi adopted that theme.
"It is a strange world. It is possible to discuss everything except the Holocaust. The Foreign Ministry plans to hold a conference on the scientific aspect of the issue to discuss and review its repercussions," Asefi told reporters.
Earlier this month, the Association of Muslim Journalists, a hard-line group, proposed holding a similar conference, but Asefi said he was not aware of the association's wishes. He said the conference he announced was planned and supported by the ministry.
U.S. Rep. Tom Lantos, D-Calif., a Holocaust survivor who was born in Budapest, has said he understood Iran was considering a conference that would call into question evidence that the Nazis conducted a mass murder of European Jews during World War II.
Israel and Iran had good relations until the 1979 Islamic revolution, lead by Grand Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, deposed Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi. Israel had backed the shah, apparently prompting Khomeini to term it the "Little Satan."
Ahmadinejad has adopted rhetoric reminiscent of Khomeini, seemingly trying to breathe life back into the waning revolutionary spirit in the country, whose residents are not traditionally anti-Jewish.
Before the revolution about 100,000 Jews lived in Iran, but three-fourths of the community fled during the upheaval.
Ahmadinejad, who took office in August, caused an international outcry in October by calling Israel a "disgraceful blot" that should be "wiped off the map."
Leaders around the world also condemned him after he called the Nazi slaughter of Jews during World War II a "myth." He later said that if the Holocaust did happen, then Israel should be moved to Germany or North America, rather than making Palestinians suffer by losing their land to atone for crimes committed by Europeans.
Since the Islamic revolution, Israel has considered Iran a primary and existential threat. As Tehran's nuclear program has moved forward, the Israelis - who are said to have nuclear weapons but do not to admit possessing such an arsenal - have refused to rule out using military force to destroy the Iranian program.

It looks like bombs will soon be raining down on his head. He better focus on buying more anti air defense systems from the russians and the chinese.
I hate to say this and I hoped it would not happen but the drums for war are starting to beat very loud here in the states.
I wonder how many days of bombings it is going to take to cripple his army and nuclear program?

As for his Holocaust denial: the guy is a complete whack job. He can choose to believe that the Holocaust didn't happen. That's his opinion. However, to purposefully announce these conferences to the world is pathetic. The guy is a psycho...he thinks he's the Mahdi.

Im not certain about the whole Nato thing. There a lot of EU members who have interest in Iran. Also Iran poses NO RISK towards them
01-16-2006, 05:48 PM #5
well the EU countries seems pretty damn feed up with iran since they want to turn the issue over to the UN.
I just wish iran would agree with the russian offer to enrichen the uranium in russia. If iran agreed to that they would show the world they want the nuclear capability for peacefull reasons.

They have the right to develop anything they want......just so they don't use it......LIKE WE DID......

I dont think I want Iran with anything thats radioactive.....its just a small stepping stone.....soon after they would be enriching uranium on their own and turn their backs to the world. Honestly they cannot be trusted and a man I knew for a while is a diplomat from Tanzania who dealt with Iranians and said that is the worlds most dangerous country, and this is well before we went into Iraq.

It will be good Scientific conference about the 'holocaust' everyone should participate and debate the issue, instead of attacking a scientific conference go there debate like civilized people and prove your opinion, some Lebanese students will particiapte by fax in this conference I might be one of them.
As for Iran getting attacked I dont think so, the american army in Iraq is very close to Iran any agression against Iran and the missiles will rain on the american troops, and if "israel" attack which I doubt (the commander of the "israeli" attack on the iraqi nuclear plants think it will fail) the shehab-3 will reach "israel" in no time,and if europe attack Iran will cut the oil on europe , they didnt even cut it now just threatning and the oil prices raised, plus even if they turned the file to the security council there is not proofs that Iran want to do nuclear weapons plus Iran didnt break any rule, anyway the Iranian diplomacy proved that its a very smart wit diplomacy.

No one is disputing that jews did die in WWII in numbers, just like many gypsies and many many others did of all walks of life ... and God might send Hitler to hell because of his acts .. but the belief is that the figures of jewish deaths were extremely exagurated to create sympathy for the zionist cause .. hence creating a situation in which the zionists could oppress another people with impunity but riding on the sympathy bandwagon .. everyone just accepted what they were told without critical analysis .. people all over the world are fed up with being procesuted for even doubting something .. people want the truth to be revealed .. it is not wrong to seek the truth .. especially when you have doubts .. if they are truthful they would not be afraid of the search for truth .. they would go and defend their position and prove that the figures they quote are truths and not made up fantasies.

Identification of the Prophesied Imam Mahdi
The Holy Prophet Muhammad(SAW) has prophesied about several events that will occur just before the advent of the day of judgment. Among these, Rasulullah(SAW) has foretold the advent of one of his descendants, Al Mahdi (the guided one), which will materialize when the believers are severely oppressed in every corner of the world. He will fight the oppressors, unite the Muslims, bring peace and justice to the world, rule over the Arabs, and lead a prayer in Mekkah at which Isa(pbuh) (Jesus) will be present.
Throughtout the history of Islam, a few individuals -- driven either by the desperate state of Muslims in their community or a selfish pursuit of power and prestige -- laid claim to being Mahdi and found a following among the uninformed masses who were looking for salvation from the heavens. For some of these individuals (like Bab of Iran or Mirza Ghulam of India) the claim to being Mahdi was just a stepping stone to the development of heretic sects which broke away from the fold of Islam. Thus, it is at least prudent to visit the facts of this prophecy and avoid falling pray to false claimants that will appear from time to time.
As Muslims, we should remember that the prophecy about Mahdi is one that will come to pass. This prophecy, however, does not absolve the Muslim ummah from its duty to strive in the cause of Allah(SWT), oppose injustice, and seek peace and betterment of human condition. Centuries have passes from the time of the holy Prophet(SAW) and there is a good possibility that many more will expire before the advent of Al Mahdi. Muslims who are negligent in their duty hoping for a savior are committing a grave mistake and are not following the divine decrees ordained in Quran or taught by Rasulullah(SAW).
According to reliable, authentic, and universally accepted narrations, Mahdi will:
1. Be from among the family of Prophet(SAW), among the descendants of Fatima(RA);
2. Have a broad forehead and pointed noise;
3. Appear in one night;
4. Appear near the end of time !
5. Have same name as hazrat Muhammad(SAW);
6. Escape from Madina to Makkah where people will pledge allegiance to him;
7. Receive pledge and help of Iraqi people;
8. Fight in battles;
9. Rule over the Arabs for seven years according to Sunnah;
10. Spread justice and equity on earth;
11. Eradicate tyranny and oppression;
12. Lead a prayer in Mekkah which Jesus(pbuh) will follow in;
13. NOT be the same individual as the Promised Messiah (Jesus).

I reposted about calling the Iranian leader the wannabe Madhi...I was mistaken. He is just preparing for the coming of the Mahdi

I remember hearing that Iraq, at the time of the first Gulf War, had the worlds 4th most powerful military.
I don't think there will be a ground war, just lots and lots of bombing.

Compared to the Arab Sheiks in Saudi Arabia he is star. He lives in a modest house, with modest things. He told everyone in his government to live modestly, and told them not to drive nice cars.
He is for the poor people, and he wants right for Iran, without Iran being bullied around.
