    I don't see this comment as HRable.  The only thing I can think of is you were HR'd for not answering the question, which admittedly is a legitimate question since there have been claims in these comments that there are progressive supporters of Hizbollah here and that some here claim that Ahmadinejad is not a Holocaust denier.

    I'd reiterate that question, volley...can you provide evidence of this?

    On the diary itself, for once I can say that I agree with you.  The comments by Ahmadinejad are idiotic, ignorant, and dangerous.  Ditto for Nasrallah, who hasn't had a thought not approved by Khamenei in years.  With the Arab Spring, I hope that we are moving away from a time when such memes gain traction.

    I appreciate your inclusion of this paragraph:

    Of course as a caveat to this it can be said that Israel's continued expansion into the West Bank adds to this in a major way by attempting to wipe out the most "just" or "fair" of the options for Peace; The Two State Solution. Not only does this building create animosity but, it realistically creates "facts on the ground" that render compromise (or at least a satisfactory compromise) moot.

    It is important to always recognize that there are two sides in this conflict, and neither side is perfect.  The settlement activity by Israel...creating facts on the ground...is an attempt to make the two-state solution impossible, while publicly supporting said solution.  That policy must be opposed by all, regardless of ethnicity or religion, if there is to be peace in our lifetime.

    •  WOW someone read that paragraph (6+ / 0-)

      Thank you....

      As for the web... just look at comments on MondoFront, FDL, and other "progressive" sites.

      Take a look the diaries supporting Ahmadi and his language about wiping Israel off the map. OR some of the Helen Thomas diaries here.

      Remember my comment was not just about here but about "around the web" as well. I think the HR folks are reading more into it than is there.

        I don't go to MondoWeiss, FDL, or other sites, and I'm not interested in going there to see these comments and/or diaries.  If they are denying the Holocaust, then they are idiots and liars.

        I just went back and looked, and the comment I was referring to was actually by fizziks, though uprated by you and many others here.

        not according to many people at this site (19+ / 0-)

        If I had a dollar for every time someone here denied that Ahmadinejad denied the Holocaust, I'd be rich.

        I'm not saying that's not true.  I'm just saying that I haven't seen it, to my knowledge.  If such comments and/or diaries exist here then they should be provided as evidence, not just to back up the comment but also because it is valuable information for those who regularly participate in I/P.
