Iranian Leader's Rant

I feel slimy even entertaining this jackal's ravings, but I'm not sure the following is entirely without merit:
If you say and insist it's true that you killed 6 million Jews in crematoria during World War II, then why should the Palestinians pay for that? Our proposal is that you give a piece of your land in Europe, the U.S., Canada or Alaska. If you do that, the Iranian people will no longer protest against you.
It's not clear that he's being a literal "Holocaust Denier" - "a myth under the name 'Massacre of the Jews,' and they hold it higher than God himself, religion itself and the prophets themselves." The meaning of the word "myth" here, given that it's a translation, might not necessarily translate to "lie." At any rate, that is what "we" - the West - did - we killed 6 million Jews and then atoned for it by granting the Jewish people a nation in the Middle East. But it's probably a little late to do anything differently now. And isn't this just what the neocons want - this cherished democracy spread around the world - so people can elect anti-Western demagogues to lead them?

The Zionists were "taking" Israel well before WWII. The process started around in earnest around WWI. WWII did bring the west on board to the idea of Israel, but the west did not decide to "create" Israel.

To say that the west just got out of the way of the Zionists after WWII might be a bit of an exaggeration, but not much.

One might say the creation of Israel, like the imposition of the Oder-Neisse line as a Polish-German border, was at best a case of very rough justice. But, with apologies to all the ex-Silesians, East Pomeranians, and East Prussians, nobody with an ounce of common sense or compassion would want to revisit that decision. History just isn't into finely calibrated justice.
