This Can't Be Good

Oh yippee. Iran is hosting a conference on the Holocaust. Recall, just for review's sake, that this is the country whose president called the Holocaust a "myth" and thinks it was concocted by Jews and Europeans to justify the creation of Israel. So you know that this thing is going to be a fair, comprehensive, and impartial review of the subject.

It doesn't take an oracle to guess that whatever goes down at the event, it will be a mind-bogglingly horrible blend of anti-Semitic lies and Israel-bashing. So my only question is this: which Westerners are going to show up and support one of the world's most despicable ideologies on its home turf? Will we say David Irving? Noam Chomsky? The architects of Great Britain's boycott of Israeli universities? The mind races to know who will place the neon sign over their head: "I'm evil!"

Yeah, some how I doubt Noam Chompsky, a Jewish anarchist who in the past has said that even debating the existence of the Holocaust is to lose one's humanity is going to attend such a discussion held by anti-Semitic Ultra-Statists.

Also if we had to invade someone why the hell wasn't it Iran?

I can't figure out how to do a trackback, so I hope you won't mind if I point out I've posted a response to this here on my blog.
