Mah Ahmad’s comments:
“‘Some European countries insist on saying that Hitler killed millions of innocent Jews in furnaces,’ Ahmadinejad told Iranian TV viewers. ‘Although we don’t accept this claim, if we suppose it is true,’ he added sportingly, ‘if European countries claim that they have killed Jews in World War II, why don’t they provide the Zionist regime with a piece of Europe? Germany and Austria can provide the regime with two or three provinces for this regime to establish itself, and the issue will be resolved. You offer part of Europe, and we will support it.'”
Steyn’s recent column — “BUT SERIOUSLY FOLKS, THIS CLOWN IS DANGEROUS” — spears the essence of this very big problem, beyond the surface ridicule that has occured on the internet about Mah Ahmad’s comments, and Steyn comes right out and makes the most salient, significant (and urgent) issue clear: the world can’t tolerate a “genocidal fantasist,” to quote Steyn, and shouldn’t hesitate to call a spade a spade.
Mah Amad makes it clear in other recent comments that he and the country he’s representing (Iran) are intent on their near achievement of nuclear
weapons electricity fuel. With Mah Amad out of his mind — again, to quote Steyn — and a nuclear weapons program available and operational, what’s next? Think back, over the long haul of history, and consider the consequences of mad, genocidal fantasist men, and now add into the memories the bonus of a nuclear weapons arsenal at the waiting and ready.
Sometimes — and this is one of them — it’s not reasonable to laugh at a clown. Even when the clown is laughing at us. It’s reasonable to laugh louder.
