Outrage at the U.N. Over Iranian President's Remarks Denying Holocaust

Security Council threatens Iran with twelve resolutions over the next twelve years.

France votes for twelve resolutions and warns President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad that it may lobby for a baker douzaine (baker's dozen) should he not keep his anti-Semitic nuclear ambitions private in the future.

The Security Council also reminded Iran that failure to comply with any of the resolutions could result in the creation of a highly lucrative "Oil for Food" program from which they could siphon billions to build nuclear weapons.

In related news, Democratic speechwriter Chris Matthews describes remarks as, "not evil, they just have a different perspective."

Correct, he did not actually say this about the holocaust remarks - but it's this type of moral relativism that somehow convinced many Americans (and certainly Europe) that 20+ dictatorships is "peace", but an effort to unseat Saddam is evil.

What *was* he talking about anyway?

Hatred blinds U.S. to truth: Journalist
Toronto Sun
November 21, 2005

Four years after 9/11 and the "crazy zeitgeist" that permeated the United States, most Americans have still not learned to know their enemies instead of just hating them, U.S. political journalist Chris Matthews says.

In a speech to political science students at the University of Toronto yesterday, the host of the CNBC current affairs show Hardball had plenty of harsh words for U.S. President George W. Bush, as well as the political climate that has characterized his country for the past few years.

"The period between 9/11 and Iraq was not a good time for America. There wasn't a robust discussion of what we were doing," Matthews said.

"If we stop trying to figure out the other side, we've given up. The person on the other side is not evil -- they just have a different perspective."

He said Bush squandered an opportunity to unite the world against terrorism and instead made decisions that have built up worldwide animosity against his administration.

I read his quote when it happened, but I still don't know how he could seriously believe it.

When we begin to attempt to understand this type of rhetoric we find ourselves uncertain of what right and wrong is anymore.
