A Rough Start For Mahmoud's Festival Of Ignorance

Pity poor Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Here he goes to all the trouble of serving up some prime red meat to the Jew-haters of Islam, and they treat him like ... well, like an ignorant and dangerous dictator. In the opening moments of the Holocaust Festival of Ignorance in Teheran, during which he called the Nazi genocide a "myth", students made it clear that they weren't buying what Mahmoud was shoveling:

ran on Monday opened a conference on the Holocaust, saying it would not be an attempt to deny the World War II genocide but merely to discuss it in an unrestricted atmosphere.

However, the conference was initiated by President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who has described the Holocaust as a "myth" and called for Israel to be wiped off the map.

Students from a Teheran university cut off Ahmadinejad as he addressed the conference, shouting slurs like "corrupt," "liar," and "death to the dictator."

The interruptions came in response to the intensified surveillance at the universities since Ahmadinejad came to power.

The Iranian president responded by accusing the hecklers of being "American."

Oooh .... now that's going to leave a mark.

The Iranians, which denied entry to an Israeli Arab, somehow found room for an extremist sect of Jews known as Natorei Karta. This group is virulently anti-Zionist and highly critical of the modern practice of Judaism, apparently. This must be what passes for balance in Iran -- which the students there know only too well.

Mahmoud's off to a bad start. However, the various participants in this global joke will no doubt perk up his spirits in the coming days with their blame-shifting of all the region's woes to the yahouds. Too bad that more of them do not have the same courage and integrity as the Iranian students, and as an American, I take Mahmoud's reaction as a particularly effusive compliment.
