Out: Holocaust denial.

In: Holocaust enthusiasm.

Throughout history, Allah has imposed upon the [Jews] people who would punish them for their corruption. The last punishment was carried out by Hitler. By means of all the things he did to them – even though they exaggerated this issue – he managed to put them in their place. This was divine punishment for them. Allah willing, the next time will be at the hand of the believers.

That was Ken Livingstone’s pal Sheikh Yousuf Al-Qaradhawi, speaking late last month on scrupulously professional news channel Al-Jazeera. (But, but…Bill O’Reilly!)
In 2004, Red Ken insisted that the Sheikh was a moderate cleric “who preaches moderation and tolerance to all faiths throughout the world.” Well, obviously he was just upset about Gaza, right?

Update: come to think of it, the Sheikh’s quote contains elements of Holocaust denial (“they exaggerated this issue”) and justification for the Holocaust. There are quite a few people out there who simultaneously believe the Holocaust didn’t happen, the Jews deserved it, the Israelis are Nazis, and that Hitler was a great man.

  1. It’s called the Racehorse Haynes defense:
    “Say you sue me because you say my dog bit you. Well, now this is my defense:
    My dog doesn’t bite.
    And second, in the alternative, my dog was tied up that night.
    And third, I don’t believe you really got bit.
    And fourth, I don’t have a dog.”

  2. These anti semetic braniacs amaze me. ‘Israel is like Hitler Nazi so it bad.’ And ‘Hitler Nazi is good for get rid of Jew and teach them lesson.’
    So is Israel good ‘for being like Hitler Nazi?’ It does not compute.
