Iran Nuke Watch...Liberal Response: "Well, he wouldn't be pushed to say such things if the Jews weren't so, you know, Jewish"

Iranian president Ahmadinejad says: "Some European countries insist on saying that Hitler killed millions of innocent Jews in furnaces...Although we don't accept this claim, if we suppose it is true, our question for the Europeans is: is the killing of innocent Jewish people by Hitler the reason for their support to the occupiers of Jerusalem?" UPDATE: Yikes! I just posted this when I found this story about the UN's tepid response to Iran. What does the world's watchdog and moral arbiter do when faced with an Islamic totalitarian regime headed by a guy who wants Israel "wiped off the face of the Earth", denies the Holocaust occurred and is unwilling to allow UN inspections to confirm his nuclear program is not for military purposes? Well, we shouldn't "think we should jump the gun, and use enforcement." No, no, God forbid we appear churlish and use any sort of "enforcement." And we don't want to do anything "as long as we haven't seen an imminent threat, a smoking gun..." [Note: this is where my brain starts to hurt when no one asks the obvious question, "What sort of 'imminent threat' would you need to see before taking action?"] However, they admit that "the best alternative today is inspections, to be on the ground and unearth the facts." Question: how do you propose the UN achieve that goal since turning the matter over to the U.N. Security Council, which can impose sanctions on the country, is apparently not an "immediate answer. " And rounding off the ridiculous ineffectiveness of this world body is the regular dose of moral and cultural relativism: You see, if you really want to stop the spread of nuclear weapons, the nations that have them should "lead the way" by disarming themselves. Explain why a terrorist group or nation, hell bent on destroying all non-believers, would not seek to detonate a nuke in London, or Chicago, or Paris, or Berlin if their enemies gave up their nuclear weapons. I ask the question: Who do you trust more with nuclear weapons? America and Israel, for example, or North Korea and Iran?
