    Muslim institute dares Iranian leader to visit Auschwitz

    So, it really could fit into one of the other (multitudes of) threads, but such things become lost quite quickly.

    BERLIN -- A Muslim cultural institute in Germany on Monday criticized Iranian President Mahmud Ahmadinejad for disparaging the Holocaust, daring him to visit the Auschwitz concentration camp.

    "In this place of horror he can again deny the Holocaust, if he has the courage," a spokesman for the Islam-Archiv-Deutschland Central Institute told the German Catholic press agency KNA.

    In recent statements, the hardline Iranian president has dismissed the Nazis' systematic slaughter of mainland Europe's Jews as a "myth" used to justify the creation of Israel and called for the state to be "wiped off the map".

    By denying the Holocaust, Ahmadinejad not only denigrated the Jewish victims of the genocide but also the 200,000 Roms and Arabs murdered in the "gypsy camp" of Auschwitz-Birkenau and other camps, the institute spokesman said.

    The fact that the president of an Islamic state repeated Nazi anti-Semitism was harmful to the image of Islam and "a disgrace for all the world's Muslims", he added.

    The institute, founded in 1927, is the oldest Muslim body in Germany. It has been dedicated to preserving the community's archives since the eighteenth century and fostering relations between Muslims and other religions.

    A controversial contest for cartoons of the Holocaust was launched in Iran on Monday in a tit-for-tat move over European newspaper publications of caricatures of the Prophet Mohammed that have angered Muslims worldwide.
    Promote then, as an object of primary importance, institutions for the general diffusion of knowledge. In proportion as the structure of a government gives force to public opinion, it is essential that public opinion should be enlightened.

    All well and good. But unfortunately burried somewhere the rest of the world wont see it.
    Surely there others that should speak up and go on record. Is AJ reporting this? Why not?

    You can easily see inside of this country how religious fanatics like evangelicals are perfectly willing to ignore things like history and science. I don't see how this guy is ever going to convince any of the fundamentalists in Iran about Jewish history. We should just be happy that Jesus' teachings were peaceful and not violent.
