CBS: David Duke at Iran Shoah Farce

Joining the anti-Zionist rabbis -- Ex Klan Chief David Duke.

(CBS/AP) Iran hosted Holocaust deniers from around the world on Monday in a conference debating whether the World War II genocide of Jews took place, a meeting that Israel's prime minister condemned as a "sick phenomenon."

The 67 participants from 30 countries included former U.S. Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke.

The New York Times reported that Duke, a white supremacist, was expected to claim that Germany built no gas chambers or extermination camps during World War II.

"Depicting Jews as the overwhelming victims of the Holocaust gave the moral high ground to the Allies as victors of the war and allowed Jews to establish a state on the occupied land of Palestine," Duke said, according to the summary of the paper he will deliver, the Times reported.

Duke told BBC cameras in Tehran that he is not a Holocaust denier.

"I'm a Holocaust questioner," he told the BBC. "But I'm here to defend freedom of speech."

I find it interesting that the CBS article referred to the Jews as "members of the group Jews United Against Zionism" -- instead of the name Neturei Karta. Most other news outlets are even worse, they make it seem that the long-black-jacketed Jews represent Orthodox Judaism. Thanks for posting this, Tzvee.
