Must be yet another "mistranslation"

Back on May 13 I noted how a few local idiots actually believe that Iranian President Ahmadinejad is just a victim of "mistranslations" of some of his more "heated" rhetoric. Maybe this is one, too:

The massacre of Jewish people during the Holocaust was "scientifically impossible," according to an article published by an Iranian satellite channel on its Web site.

The article was written by Nicholas Kollerstrom, an academic specializing in astrology and crop circles, who had his fellowship terminated by University College London last month after he said there were never any gas chambers at Auschwitz.

In the article, titled "The Walls of Auschwitz‚" Kollerstrom argues that "the alleged massacre of Jewish people by gassing during World War II was scientifically impossible."

Kollerstrom's work is also hosted on the Web site of the Committee for Open Debate on the Holocaust‚ which also promotes the works of Holocaust deniers David Irving of England and Ernst Zundel of Germany.

In an article on the site, titled "The Auschwitz 'Gas Chamber' Illusion," Kollerstrom writes that only a million Jews died in the war and that "the only intentional mass extermination program in the concentration camps of World War Two was targeted at Germans."

Some cretins are so overcome with BDS (Bush Derangement Syndrome) that they'll actually go to the absurd length of belief that Iran and those that run the place do not despise Israel and Jews in general. That's why that "Derangement" term is so necessary, natch.

Yes, the signs point to the fact that they really want to destroy Israel. When I say "signs," I mean it literally. Like in billboards.
