Mahmud Ahmadinedschad is cunning individual, when he speaks about the Holocaust and Israel the way he does, then because he's fully aware of the
historical inconsistencies, the collaboration between the Zionist Movement and Nazi Germany and the role it had played in the creation of the State of
Israel. He is fully aware of this:
The Zionist record in relation to the holocaust was the logical outcome of a movement which, throughout the war, and in the face of the Nazi
exterminations, prioritised above everything the building of a Jewish state.
At a time when Jews, trade unionists and anti-fascists were launching a worldwide economic boycott of Nazi Germany, the World Zionist Organisation
was secretly negotiating an economic agreement which allowed richer German Jews to liquidate their property in Germany and redeem part of the money in
Palestine. This agreement was announced by the Nazis shortly before the 18th Zionist congress in Prague, in September 1933.
Having this knowdledge and the fact, that the large majority of the 'West' and especially the jewish community world wide have repeatedly missed the
opportunity to discuss this part of history openly, enables him to counter a myth with another myth, offering a little truth to disguise the lies and
cover the true intentions.
In that regard, one could argue, what Ahmadinedschad says makes sense. But does it really?
“Even today, in a perverse way, a real anti-semite must be a Zionist.”
