Iranian Con, the beginning

The reports and schedule from the conference are available at the denier "Adelaide Institute" site. Such luminaries as Patrick McNally and David Duke ("MAUP University, Ukraine") will surely "make a difference". Oh, and Norman Finkelstein allegedly participates.

Update: apparently, the information on "Adelaide Institute"'s website about Norman Finkelstein's participation was false. The schedule itself was changed soon after this posting.

Just finished reading Toben's presentation. Just the same tired litany of lies and deliberate distortions we've heard so many times before. Nothing at all new. You'd think a grown man would be ashamed of himself for putting his name to such a presentation.

Yeah, "MAUP University, Ukraine" cracks me up whenever I think of it. Nice way of saying that he couldn't get a degree at a credited institution in his own country, so he went to a diploma mill in an ex-Soviet-Union country, paid a few thousands bucks and got a worthless piece of paper. And pesonally I'd prefer "MILF University".

And why would someone name his alma mater as his (only) credentials? Wouldn't it be correct to name your degree (without the name of the institution). Not to mention that he proudly proclaims his graduation from a diploma mill. Or did I get it wrong and in addition to having "graduated" from that school he actually is now a member of the "teaching staff" there? If that's the case, what does he teach there? "Applied Antisemitism 101"?

In an article on Spiegel.de the author writes that there will be at least five orthodox rabbis from several countries attending who will argue that the Holocaust is a historic truth but is exploited by the Israeli government to "justify the unfair treatment of the Palestinians". They are their to say "that the Holocaust happened because we experienced it" but also to demand its exploitation to be stopped. Looks like they are members of that ultra-orthodox anti-zionistic faction.

And these morons actually stated that

"This conference fully respects the Jewish religion and is away from politicization and propaganda."

OH..ok. The coference is away from politicization and agenda. Ok. So THAT'S why David Duke is attending the conference. And THAT'S why they have a "the world without zionism" poster and why the conference is hosted in IRAN.

The morons discredited themselves before the conference even started...
