Q. Can you explain to me how it is that I saw a group of Jewish men (called Hassidic) actually attending one of the Iranian president’s anti–Semitic meetings this week, and why they were shaking his hand with smiles on their faces? For the life of me I can not figure this out.
A. The organizers rounded up some “anti-zionist” Jews to sit on the stage at Iranian Pres. Ahmadinejab’s holocaust denial seminar. (Anti-zionist Jews believe in the Jewish people, but oppose the Jewish nation.) Apparently their presence there was intended to give legitimacy to the idea that the holocaust never happened. From reports I’ve read, the world was not persuaded.
