Another wagging tongue

How much longer does the world need to listen to Mahmoud Ahmadinejad? Not surprisingly he continues his slurs against the Holocaust and against the West.

Haaretz reports that in a radio address delivered last week, Ahmadinejad once again referred to the Shoah as the “Big Deception” and the West’s “weakness.”

The West has taken the issue of the Holocaust to expose a hypocritical innocence and oppress other nations, but I have effectively attacked this weak point of the West.

Ahmadinejad is currently in the middle of a fierce campaign to be re-elected to a second four-year term as president of Iran.  His primary pro-reform rival, Mir Hossein Mousavi, has openly criticized Ahmadinejad’s constant questioning of the Holocaust, stating that it has undermined Iran’s international standing.

Iran cannot move forward with Ahmadinejad at its helm.  He has proven time and time again his unwillingness to work with the international community, and continues to reject any compromise with world powers over nuclear energy.

It’s time for a change in the world, and let’s start with saying goodbye to Ahmadinejad.  Hopefully the Iranian people will elect a new leader open to democracy, committed to working with the international community, and one who will be a peaceful neighbor in the constantly shaky Middle East.

About Rabbi Joshua

I'm a Rabbi, writer, thinker, mountain biker, father and husband ... not necessarily in that order. According to my wife, however, I'm just a big nerd. I have degrees in dead languages and ancient stuff. I have studied in various Jewish institutions, including an Orthodox yeshiva in Europe. I get in trouble for making friends with perfect strangers, and for standing on chairs to sing during Shabbos dinner. In addition to being the Senior Rabbi of Simchat Yisrael Messianic Synagogue in West Haven, CT, I write regularly for several publications and speak widely in congregations and conferences. My wife is a Southern-fried Jewish Beltway bandit and a smokin' hot human rights attorney... and please don’t take offense if I dump Tabasco sauce on your cooking.
