Iranian Senior Cleric Calls Holocaust a “Superstition”

Senior Iranian cleric, Grand Ayatollah Nasser Makarem Shirazi, has denounced the Holocaust of Jews as nothing more than a “superstition” of the West. The cleric insists “[t]he Holocaust is nothing but superstition, but Zionists say that people of the world should be forced to accept this.”

Shirazi is a “marja,” one the highest authorities in Shiite Islam. He is also obviously a perfect lunatic. He added “Americans and Westerners are affected by newly appeared superstitions such as the Holocaust . . . The truth about the Holocaust is not clear, and when the researchers want to examine whether it is true or the Jews have created it to pose as victims, they jail the researchers.”

  1. As a follower of historical mythology I have often been amused by the references to a great “Persian Empire” as portrayed in spurious history and popular entertainment like the “300.” It was all myth-making perpetrated by the invading Muslim forces in the eighth century in order to magnify their victory. The Persia of history was a nomadic tribe of goat-herders, who realizing they controlled part of the spice Right, cobbled together some ersatz cities made of mud to try to compete with the real empires of their day. When the Romans, Greeks, Parthians etc. saw what these parvenu’s called a city they were filled with mirth. The proto-Persians were so embarrassed the stole Zoroaster from the Gnostic beliefs in order to portray themselves as civilized. However, as we all know once a goat-herd, always a goat-herd.

    Actually, the truth remains the truth regardless of who supports it. No one has an “obligation” to avoid saying the truth just because it happens to be supported by dictators.

    That’s why the same Atomic theory worked in both the USSR and the US.

  3. In the countries where it happened, people are imprisoned for expressing disagreement with the official government account of World War II persecution of Jews and other minorities. Knowing about those laws, a free thinking, honest person with a dedication to intellectual integrity actually has an obligation to avoid affirming the official government accounts. This Ayatollah has a better grasp on the concept of freedom and open discourse as the foundation for truth than the posters on this blog! Thats rich.

    And on the eighth day, God did create the unbalanced and unhinged and set them free on the world he did, saying “this is like, totally gonna slay ‘em”

    that’s just silly……..

    those who keep covenant with that manner of chaos know better where ‘unbalanced’ and ‘unhinged’ come from…

  5. “And I am haunted by the look alone.”
    yes, I’ve seen that look, it is one of the few things that really angers me….it is the same in people and animals that have been treated cruelly with intention. I have experienced people attempting to put me into fear…deliberately.
    That was the point of the 9/11 attacks….intentional infliction of fear to the masses so that some entity could do something they would not have been able to do otherwise. That is the world right now…people use fear to ‘get what they want’ and to keep other people in line. I think little of people like that. It is anti-social behavior and creates more harm than any good that can be worthwhile coming of it….

    See. It really puts things in perspective.


    Yes, you are right, it does.

  8. Buddha,

    That is a very touching and thought provoking story. You were quite fortunate to have had a person such as Ben in your life.

  9. W=c,

    I worked at a bookstore in high school. We had a lovely old gentleman who had written and self-published a book about surviving the Holocaust. At twelve years old, Ben had been the only member of his family to survive. He lived in town and our manager gave him an open invitation to come to the store to set up a table, sell books, talk to people, sign books. And when I say gentleman I mean gentle man. He always had a kind word and was cheerful and he clearly loved talking to people in general, not just selling his story. The kind of old duffer any kid would love to have as a grandpa.

    One weekend, some of the teenage miscreants wandering about the mall decided to hassle him. One of them was wearing a T-shirt with Hitler on it. I took great pleasure in ejecting them from the store, not once, but twice, and then calling mall security who in turn escorted them off the property.

    What I did not take pleasure in was the look in his eyes when they returned. He had taken the first attack in stride, but the second clearly shook him.

    Haunted is not a term that does the look justice. He looked as if he’d just seen the Devil Himself. But whenever I think of the cruelty people are capable of inflicting upon one another, I think of the look in Ben’s eyes.

    And I am haunted by the look alone.

    Blouise–I tried that station and I heard Maurice Chevalier singing: “Every single breeze seems to whisper ‘Blouise’”

  11. Untermensch (German for under man, sub-man, sub-human; plural: Untermenschen) is a term that became infamous when the Nazi racial ideology used it to describe “inferior people”, especially “the masses from the East,” that is Jews, Gypsies, Poles along with other Slavic people like the Russians, Serbs, Ukrainians, so-called Mischlinge and anyone else who was not an “Aryan” according to the contemporary Nazi race terminology. The German word Mensch literally means human.~wikipedia
    …having cared for a terror stricken elder with tatooed numbers on her wrist, watching her relive her terror every other day when it was time to bathe, I’d say Mr. Iranian senior Turd has his head up his ass.

  12. “I don’t hate plaid, paraphiliac worshipers of Poseidon. I have a very good friend in Philly who is a plaid, paraphiliac worshiper of Poseidon.”

    These kinds of statements have great utility.

    They tell you the speaker is full of shit.
