Just in case you thought anti-Semitism was overblown...

...Ahamdinejad gives a speech that could have been written a hundred years ago by any classic anti-Semite. Jews are humiliating the world financially? Zionism is the most racist of all political movements? Somebody has been reading their Protocols of the Elders of Zion...(I heard that in a television interview last night, not sure where to find it... But clearly he was gearing up for his talk today.)

He knows his audience well, I'll give him that. I am sure that he feels he scored a victory as the Europeans got up and left the conference...

"And in fact in compensation for the dire consequences of racism in Europe, they helped bring to power the most cruel and repressive racist regime in Palestine," Mr Ahmadinejad said.

"They sent migrants from Europe, the United States ... in order to establish a racist government in the occupied Palestine."
