The Bush administration condemned Iran on Tuesday for convening a conference of people who deny the Holocaust happened, calling the move “an affront to the entire civilized world.”
The Iranian regime is an affront to the entire civilized world. This absurd “conference” of “scholars” questioning the holocaust is just their latest affront in a continual attack on civility and modern society.
Rather than simply condemning the obvious here, President Bush ought to use this opportunity to highlight the greater damage the world’s number one state sponsor of terror inflicts on a daily basis through the funding of Hezbollah, Hamas, the insurgency in Iraq and Lebanon, to name just a few. Make the case; the sane are listening.
Bush ought to then publicly laugh at James Baker for encouraging the US to negotiate with such people. How is negotiation possible when one side lives in an alternate universe? Get Real, James Baker.
