Quotes by Iran's Ahmadinejad

As some of you may know Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad spoke today at Columbia University. This should be good. Let's see what ol' crazybottoms had to say. And don't ask where ol' crazybottoms came from cause I have no idea.

—On the Holocaust:

Why is it that the Palestinian people are paying the price for an event they had nothing to do with?

Cause everyone else already paid for that war.

—On Holocaust deniers:

My question was simple: There are researchers who want to approach the topic from a different perspective. Why are they put into prison? Right now, there are a number of European academics who have been sent to prison because they attempted to write about the Holocaust or research it from a different perspective, questioning certain aspects of it. My question is: Why isn't it open to all forms of research?

The Holocaust is one of the best documented action of our time. Denying the Holocaust is like denyine that the Earth is round or that water is wet. While I agree no one should go to jail for speaking their beliefs, you have to set a limit to how stupid people can be allowed to be. After all nothing is as dangerous as stupid people in large numbers.

—On 9/11:

Why did this happen? What caused it? What conditions led to it? .. Who truly was involved? Who was really involved and put it all together?

It happened because some Islamist radicals have a destorted sense of their religion. Claiming you kill civilians because of a governments foreign policy is a copout. The difference between an act of war and an act of terrorism is all about the target.

—On executions of homosexuals in Iran:

In Iran we don't have homosexuals like in your country. We don't have that like in your country. ... In Iran we do not have this phenomenon. I don't know who's told you that we have this.

He then went on to claim he wasn't sitting in a chair, there was no microphone in front of him and, in fact, he wasn't even really there.
