A Glimmer of Hope in the Muslim Community

It's refreshing to see at least one group of Muslims say and do the right thing. More power to them.

Muslim institute dares Iranian leader to visit Auschwitz
February 14, 2006

BERLIN -- A Muslim cultural institute in Germany on Monday criticized Iranian President Mahmud Ahmadinejad for disparaging the Holocaust, daring him to visit the Auschwitz concentration camp.

"In this place of horror he can again deny the Holocaust, if he has the courage," a spokesman for the Islam-Archiv-Deutschland Central Institute told the German Catholic press agency KNA.

In recent statements, the hardline Iranian president has dismissed the Nazis' systematic slaughter of mainland Europe's Jews as a "myth" used to justify the creation of Israel and called for the state to be "wiped off the map".

By denying the Holocaust, Ahmadinejad not only denigrated the Jewish victims of the genocide but also the 200,000 Roms and Arabs murdered in the "gypsy camp" of Auschwitz-Birkenau and other camps, the institute spokesman said.

What is the Vegas line on this offer being accepted?

I would say the odds are pretty long that it would happen.

Denying that the Holocst Happened so that Muslims cand advocate the anhilation of Israel is sad.

Israel is one country the Muslim world should not want to take on, as the Israelis have no problem whatsoever with the concept of an eye-for-an-eye.

Yeah, I highly doubt it. To visit a concentration camp would take moral courage, which is something sorely lacking in the Arab world. Thank God for Israel. They have done a lot of dirty work in the middle east which has made the world safer. They are probably the only nation in the world that 'gets it'. No dhimmitude there.
