A-dog: "I keed, I keed!"

EU Summit to Address Ahmadinejad Comments

European Union leaders will address the Iranian president's denial of the Holocaust as a "myth," Germany's foreign minister said Thursday, warning that patience is running out with Tehran.

The German government has condemned the remarks by
Iran's Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and called on the
United Nations as well as the EU to follow suit. Berlin says the comments will also weigh on talks over Tehran's disputed nuclear program.

The EU summit beginning Thursday in Brussels will address Ahmadinejad's statements "also at our urging," Steinmeier said in the German parliament. The remarks showed "with how much irresponsibility and cynicism the Iranian government currently regards the situation of
Israel and the Near East."

"I say again: the government in Tehran must understand that the patience of the international community is not endless," Steinmeier said.

Germany, along with France and Britain, has been leading diplomatic efforts to allay fears over Iran's nuclear intentions. Later this month, Iran is due to resume negotiations the issue with envoys from the three countries.

Ahmadinejad first provoked an international outcry in October when he called for Israel to be "wiped off the map." He then expressed doubt about the Nazi destruction of European Jewry during World War II and went further Wednesday — saying that the Holocaust is a "myth" that Europeans have used to create a Jewish state in the heart of the Islamic world.

Denying the Holocaust is a crime in Germany.

Now respond:

1. A-dog clearly has a bone to pick with Israel (much like most people in the region.). HOWEVER.....was the denying of the Holocaust more of an insult to the Jews, or to Europe? And should Germany be "more" offended than the rest of Europe?

2. Is A-dog just talking trash or is he beginning to look like a serious threat to (relative) peace and security in the region? Remember that he wanted to "wipe Israel from the map." previously.

Extra credit if you use a creative nickname.

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad needs a slap upside the head, not another speech from Germany.

Who knows what he's thinking in his head. He may be trying to pull the west into another war to further cause problems.
