A superstition? Here's what's not a superstition; you're an assclown

Ahhh, one can always count on the rationality of an Iranian cleric, can't we?

The Holocaust is a superstition, created by Jews.

Oh and hey!  We only want Nuclear power for peaceful purposes.

Iranian cleric calls Holocaust 'superstition'

A senior Iranian cleric, Grand Ayatollah Nasser Makarem Shirazi, dismissed the Nazi Holocaust of Jews during World War II as a new “superstition” for the West, media reported yesterday.

“The Holocaust is nothing but superstition, but Zionists say that people of the world should be forced to accept this,” he was quoted as saying by the state news agency Irna.

“Americans and Westerners are affected by newly appeared superstitions such as the Holocaust,” he said according to Isna news agency.

“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,” said Makarem Shirazi, who is a ‘marja’, or among the highest authorities in Shia Islam.

Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has repeatedly branded the Holocaust a “myth” in his frequent anti-Israel diatribes drawing international condemnation, but Iran’s prominent clergy have rarely echoed such comments.

The comments came after Ahmadinejad dismissed on Friday revived Israeli-Palestinian peace talks as “doomed” to fail and said the people of the Middle East are “capable of removing the Zionist regime” from the world scene.
