NYT publishes sophistry, but Iran clears-up their confusion

By

In last Sunday's New York Times, Ethan Bronner wrote an article which belittled the claims  that the Iranian President has called for the destruction of Israel. The argument was quite hairsplitting and absurd: basically, a replay of "you say TomAhTo I say ToMayTo."

This sophistry, of course, flies in the face of reality. Newspapers, experts, political leaders, diplomats and many others that often disagree on many issues have all agreed that Ahmadinejad has not only denied that a Holocaust has occurred, but that he boasts he will bring about another one.

Bronner relied on one particular professor, Juan Cole, whose anti—Israel (and quite possibly anti—Semitic) biases are well—known and whose lack of academic ability led to his rejection by Yale for a post there.

Yesterday, MEMRI released this document reporting that Presidential Advisor Mohammad Ali Ramnin stated,

"The Resolution of the Holocaust Issue will End in the Destruction of Israel."

I am thankful he cleared that up for us.
 
Mr. Bronner, a response, please? Time for a correction, New York Times?
