Iran's 'Angel of Death' Mohammad-Ali Ramin

On December 14, 2006 the Iranian news agency IRNA reported, in English, that participants in the Iranian Holocaust Denial Conference, dubbed "Holocaust: A Global Vision," had announced the establishment of a "world foundation for Holocaust studies" and unanimously appointed Presidential Advisor Mohammad-Ali Ramin as its secretary-general.
According to IRNA, Ramin said that "one of the plans of the foundation is to assign a committee to find out the truth about the holocaust [sic], and noted that its main office will be in Tehran, and that it "will eventually be transferred to Berlin, once proper grounds are prepared."

Like Hitler's Goebbels, Mohammad-Ali Ramin, also known as the 'Angel of Death' is someone to watch carefully. Inexplicably, wikipedia describes him as a 'human rights activist.' He is the founder of the above-mentioned recent hate-fest in Iran and the head of Nuclei of Sacrificers for Velayat. A few searches on the web produced little information on this 'club' of his, but it does not sound good, whatever it is.

This is an individual who while on a visit to Gilan University, said to a group of students in the town of Rasht: 'We Iranians are definitely not, and never have been, nationalistic, and we are not against any ethnic [group]. We certainly do not worship race, nor [are we] against any race, and we nave never perpetrated genocide. This is why Islam, which appeared and advanced [the notion of] equality among nations and among peoples, greatly appealed to us Iranians. We have accepted the [principle] of equality among nations since the days of the Achaemenids. [2] Antisemitism, therefore, has no place in our Iranian [culture]. I myself honestly fight for just treatment of Judaism. Ten years ago, [when] I first brought up the issue of the Holocaust in this country, my intention was to defend the Jews…

then of course, predictably in Nazi fashion went on to say:
'But among the Jews there have always been those who killed God’s prophets and who opposed justice and righteousness. Throughout history, this religious group has inflicted the most damage on the human race, while some groups within it engaged in plotting against other nations and ethnic groups to cause cruelty, malice and wickedness. Historically, there are many accusations against the Jews. For example, it was said that they were the source for such deadly diseases as the plague and typhus. This is because the Jews are very filthy people. For a time people also said that they poisoned water wells belonging to Christians and thus killed them.'

Interestingly the Iranians seem to lift their material from Dr Norman Finkelstein of Depaul. The progressives have turned into redneck.

Welcome to the year 2000 where Mike Stivic is a PC bigot and Archie can't understand why he is so hateful.
