Man, They Are In Trouble Now!

Members of the EU are threatening sanctions against Iran because Iranian Nutjob President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad stated that the Holocaust was a "myth."

ATHENS, Greece - European leaders threatened sanctions against Iran for its president's remarks about Israel and the Holocaust, even as the regime's interior minister said Friday the widely condemned comments were "misunderstood" by Western governments.

Leaders at a European Union summit in Brussels, Belgium, will adopt a statement Friday condemning Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's recent comments describing the Holocaust as a "myth" and calling for Israel to be "wiped off the map."

"These comments are wholly unacceptable and have no place in civilized political debate," the draft statement said.

...Denying the Holocaust — in which 6 million Jews died at the hands of the Nazis — is a crime in several European nations.
So let's review. According to the EU:

Building nuclear weapons - still OK!

Holocaust denial - beyond the pale of human intercourse.

The history of the 20th century is going to have to be re-written because apparently Europe is not located on the planet Earth.
