Iran Asks Germany - Fix the Zionists

This is really strange. Iran has asked Germany for help with the Zionists "problem, and to fix Palestine.

A German government official said on Thursday that letter written by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to German Chancellor Angela Merkel asks her to help solve the Palestinian problem and deal with Zionism.

“There’s nothing about the nuclear issue (in the letter),” the official told Reuters on condition of anonymity due to the extreme sensitivity of the issue for the German government.

“It’s all related to Germany and how we have to find a solution to the Palestinian problems and Zionism and so on. It’s rather weird,” The official, who has seen the letter, said.
Nothing weird about it. Ahmadinejad doesn't know what year this is. He thinks it is 1942 not 2006. He is nostalgic for a different time. How totally quaint.
Berlin’s relations with Ahmadinejad have been complicated by his denial of the Holocaust, in which Germany’s Nazi regime killed six million Jews, and his call for Israel to be wiped off the map.

Holocaust denial is a crime in Germany punishable with up to five years in prison.

“It’s extremely touchy (for the German government),” said the official, adding that the government did not yet know if or how it would respond. “There are a lot of propaganda phrases about Israel and the Jews inside.”
The Germans are going to have a very hard time buying this. In fact it may tip the balance in Germany to Israel's side. in fact it could shift European opinion.

no matter it is 2006 or 2060, people will not forget how state of Isreal formed and how many palestinians killed and forced to leave their homes in the process.
Occupation is not justifiable by the passaage of time.

Occupation is not justifiable by the passaage [sic] of time.

You need to learn how to spell before posting again. The country is named Israel [a before the e] and "passage" has but two 'a's.

On to the subject matter, what the heck does this quote of yours even mean? Of course occupation is justifiable over time. European colonialists occupied North America and eventually formed the United States within the occupied territories.

Are we unjust in maintaining our status as a nation simply because of the actions of previous generations?

Oh, I get it. You're simply retarded.

RETARDED NO. HE SHOULD READ "TRUE" HISTORY" BOOKS(NOT WRITTEN BY THE MUSLIN BROTHERHOOD ETC.).(I'M ASSUMING IT'S A MAN SINCE THEY DON'T LET THEIR WOMEN ON THE NET) THERE WAS NO COUNTRY, JEWS ASKED THE ARABS TO STAY AND MAKE PEACE. ARAB STATES HAD OTHER INTENTIONS. CREATE CHAOS AND WE WIN! SUCH AS TODAY'S LEBANON & IRAQ.

JUST KEEP BEING THE VICTIM AS YOUR ARAB/MUSLIM GOVERMENTS KEEP YOU DOWN AND THE ELITE STEAL ALL THE MONEY, GOTTA BLAME OCTUPUS, ERR I MEAN THE OCCUPATION, ERR, MEAN THE JEWS FOR ALL YOUR PROBLEMS. WHERE IS ARAFAT'S WIFE? LIVING THE HIGH LIFE IN FRANCE? WHERE DID SHE GET THE MONEY? WILL THE PLO SEND HE'S DAUGHTER TO BECOME A BODYBOMBER? WHY NOT? HE SENT MANY TO THEIR DEATHS BLOWING UP INNOCENT PEOPLE. WHY NOT? MANY A PARENT SENT THEIR POOR MISLEAD CHILD TO DEATH. FOR WHAT? HAMAS AND THE PLO LEADERSHIP ARE READY TO RISK WAR AS LONG AS THEIR FAMILIES DON'T HAVE TO FIGHT. BLAME EVERYBODY BUT YOURSELVES. LOOK IN YOUR MIRROR.

That this clown is in charge of a country is flat scary. That he's so demented to write such a letter to the current government in Germany has to be taken as a sign that he's almost totally disconnected from reality.

But, at least, the UK media are ignoring this letter, so it will have little effect on opinion.

In the same way the media never made clear how loopy was the letter to Bush, making it possible for them to suggest that Bush was ignoring an olive branch.

re previous comment, your link to the AP report still pushes the line that the letter to Bush was something better then a rant.

"In May, Ahmadinejad sent an 18-page letter to President Bush that also did not address the nuclear issue and was dismissed promptly by Washington.

While that letter marked a diplomatic overture, it was laced with old grievances against the United States and spelled out a long list of Iranian demands."

Extremely. I assume you have seen the ITM post on new banners showing up in Baghdad. The Shiites may be just that insane. It does seem that Ahmadinejad thinks he can drive a wedge between the Germans and “Zionists”. See this Der Spiegel interview :

"How much longer do you think the German people have to accept being taken hostage by the Zionists? When will that end - in 20, 50, 1,000 years?"

Could there really be untapped resentment at the guilt burden of history in Germany that he can use?

BTW To those posting in all caps, I don’t even read them because I know in advance there is a 99% probability you have nothing interesting or sane to say. Also, the poster Anonymous clearly posts too much everywhere, and seems to have a schizophrenic viewpoint ;p
