Deny the Holocaust, but Don’t Question Sharia?

If you grew up between Iran and Syria, as I did, you would have lived underneath the iron rule of dictators such as Bashar Assad, Ayatollah Khamenei, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, and Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani. In addition to the fear and oppression they maintained over their people, all of these rulers appeared to have another “tradition” in common. They are all deny the Holocaust.

It was common to hear from whoever worked for the Iranian regime that the Holocaust did not exist. Despite the mountain of clear facts before them, they chose, and continue to choose, not only to believe that the Holocaust was a fabrication, but to spread this belief to their people.

“The Holocaust is a fictional story made up by Israelis, Americans and Jews,” you would have overheard, as I did, a member of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) say to his colleagues. The group stood next to its patrol car while rigidly monitoring people’s behavior and clothes on the street. The words, even then, created a shock. How could anyone deny such atrocities?

    The Holocaust is the most documented event in history. Jewish (and non Jewish) scholars have dissected, explored and investigated the minutia and published their results.
    The perpetrators stood up at Nuremberg and claimed they were proud of what they did.
    On the other hand believing a man ascended to heaven on a flying horse is a crock of shit.

    Then why do they love and worship Hitler? Wouldn’t that make him a piker?
