Tehran Times cites DePaul's Norman Finkelstein in hateful editorial

Hat Tip Marathon Pundit - Remember this is the same country that just said if the Holocaust happened they should move Israel to Europe and 'needs Nucleur Power for 'energy' despite being the 2nd most Oil rich country in the world.

Tehran Times cites DePaul's Norman Finkelstein in hateful editorial

The Tehran Times, in my opionion, could be the world's worst newspaper. (as a mouthpiece official or unofficial for the lunatic Mullahocracy)

From Monday's front page editorial -

  • The United Nations General Assembly has voted to designate January 27 as international Holocaust Remembrance Day. The UN resolution to commemorate Jews who lost their lives in Europe during the Second World War was introduced by Israel and approved on Tuesday by most UN member states. What’s behind this resolution and the Holocaust remembrance effort? Whose interests does it serve?

    It is, of course, fitting and proper to remember all victims of war and genocide. But Holocaust remembrance is not, as its supporters claim, a noble effort motivated by sincere concern for humanity. It is, rather, a one-sided campaign designed to further Zionist interests.

    Since the late 1970s, remembrance of “the Holocaust” – usually defined as the genocidal killing of six million Jews in Europe during the Second World War – has grown tremendously. This media and political campaign, which Jewish historian Alfred Lilienthal calls “Holocausto­mania,” includes a relentless stream of propagandistic motion pictures, television specials, books, education courses, museums and commemorative events.


Norman Finkelstein, a Jewish scholar who teaches at DePaul University in Chicago, writes in his bestselling book, The Holocaust Industry, that “invoking The Holocaust” is “a ploy to delegitimize all criticism of Jews.” He adds: “By conferring total blamelessness on Jews, the Holocaust dogma immunizes Israel and American Jewry from legitimate censure... Organized Jewry has exploited the Nazi holocaust to deflect criticism of Israel’s and its own morally indefensible policies.”

I don't know who's crazier. The Tehran Times or DePaul's in-house holocaust minimizer,
Norman G. Finkelstein.

Back to the Finkelstein book,
Beyond Chutzpah; I'm not aware that it's a best-seller, as the Tehran Times claims.
