Iranians mock Holocaust on last friday of Ramadan

Today on the last day of the month of Ramadan, the holiest month in Islam and one of the pillars of Islam, radicalism, bigotry, hatred, and anti-Semitism was rampant in the streets of Iran. Tens of thousands of students, with the "Minister of Education" present, held their Quds Day (or Jerusalem Day. The Ayatollah in 1979 made it that the last Friday in the month of Ramadan a "day of solidarity" with the Palestinians for Muslims around the world). What occurs on this day is showing "Oppression" of the Palestinians people by the "Zionist Regime" (as President Ahmadinejad has referred to the Jewish State of Israel). What makes this more unsettling (in case this doesn't bother you) a new book was presented at this "rally."

Under the following banner, "The Islamic world will not recognize the fake Zionist regime under any circumstances and believes that this cancerous tumor will one day be wiped off the face of the earth," a book that mocks the Holocaust has been created. Here are some of the contents of this book, published by the Islamist Basij militia:

  • The cover shows a Jew with a crooked nose and dressed in traditional garb drawing outlines of dead bodies on the ground.
  • Bearded Jews are shown leaving and re-entering a gas chamber with a counter that reads the number 5,999,999.
  • Jewish prisoners entering a furnace in a Nazi extermination camp and leaving as gun-wielding terrorists from the other side.
  • A patient covered in an Israeli flag and on life support breathing Zyklon-B, the poisonous gas used in the extermination chambers.
  • The commentary inside the book includes anti-Semitic stereotypes and revisionist arguments, casting doubt on the massacre of Jews and mocking Holocaust survivors who claimed reparations after World War II.
  • One comment in a question-and-answer format reads:"How did the Germans emit gas into chambers while there were no holes on the ceiling?" Answer: "Shut up, you criminal anti-Semite. How dare you ask this question?"
Iranians also held place cards that said "Israel will be destroyed, Palestine is Victorious," "Holy war until victory," and both American and Israeli flags were burned.
