One could be easily fooled after reading the Jerusalem Post’s report to think that this guy Karroubi is too good to be true! He’s criticizing Ahmadinejad’s holocaust denial? Could there actually be a friend of Israel and the Jews leading Iran?

Unfortunately, after doing a bit more reading on Karroubi in other sources, reality sets in that it’s just more of the same. Tehran Times quotes him saying that “[He] will interact with the entire globe except Israel,” and Press TV gives us his real motive for hushing the Holocaust denial:

Mehdi Karroubi, Iranian reformist challenger of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in the June 12 voting, has blasted him over his supposed Holocaust denial.

Ahmadinejad’s claim that the Holocaust never took place has offered considerable service to Israel. Such comments only serve to antagonize the West and help the rest of the world to support the Israeli regime,” Etemad-e Melli daily quoted the former Iranian parliamentary speaker as saying.

It’s like choosing between Fatah and Hamas. What’s better, those who openly antagonize you and tell the world they want to kill you, or those who remain silent but nonetheless want to kill you? At least with the former, the rest of the world can’t deny it’s happening! Oh wait, yes we can.
