Ahmadinejad kind of mood

Far be it from me — a man who embraces peace, love, and universal harmony — to advocate the extermination of human life.

I was thinking, however...

If someone were of a mind to smuggle a few tons of plastic explosive into the site of the "Holocaust Never Happened" conference currently under way in Tehran at the invitation of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad — an international conference that collects in one location 67 virulently racist and anti-Semitic whack-jobs like former Ku Klux Klan kingpin David Duke and French pseudo-historian Georges Thiel...

...in the wake of the detonation of said explosive, the world would not be absent anyone who really ought to be missed.

I'm not saying someone ought to do that. Certainly not. Because that would be wrong.

But if someone did...

...maybe we could all agree to deny that it ever really happened.

Anonymous Donna offered these pearls of wisdom...

It absolutely blows my mind to know that there are individuals on the third rock from the sun who still embrace the idea that the Holocaust never happened.

I recall a visitor to my 7th grade English class whose family escaped the death camps simply because her parents were fortunate to escape from Europe and flee to the United States. She was my mother's age and her daughter was in my class. Her other extended family members weren't so fortunate. I know where they were sent and what became of them.

Whenever an article about the Holocaust is printed in the newspaper, I take time to read it with my teenage daughter. Education is the key. Let's not drop the ball folks.
