Quote of the Day

"Why is it that the so-called advocates of freedom of information fear hearing other people's opinions?"

- Iranian President Ahmadinejad referring to the Western nations who walked out of a speech where he branded Israel as a racist country
And just what were they objecting to? This:
"In compensation for the dire consequences of racism in Europe, they [the West] helped bring to power the most cruel and repressive racist regime in Palestine."
As you might expect, this was characterized (by, for example, the British ambassador) as "anti-Semitism," once again removing the serious meaning of that phrase, and implicitly tarring Jews everywhere with responsibility for the actions of Israel. Note that again. It wasn't Ahmadinejad characterizing Jews as "repressive" and "racist," but, implicitly, the British Ambassador (and others) who did so, by suggesting that Ahmadinejad was talking about them, and not just about Israel and Zionism.
