Help wanted

YNet News carries a Reuters report that Iranian nutter Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has written a letter seeking the help of German Prime Minister Angela Merkel in making progress toward his desired “solution” to the existence of Israel: “Iran leader asks Germany for help on Zionism.” Ahmadinejad’s desired “solution” of course has a lot in common with the “final solution” that Ahmadinejad regards as mythical. A German official describes the letter from Ahmadinejad to Merkel:

“It’s not negative like Ahmadinejad’s letter to Bush. He is not criticizing Germany,” he said. “It’s basically about how we have to work together and solve the problems of the world together.”

The Reuters story recalls Prime Minister Merkel’s comments on Ahmadinejad this past February:

In February, Merkel compared Ahmadinejad’s statements and stance to Adolf Hitler’s rise to power when he and his Nazi party began threatening to exterminate European Jewry.

“Remember that in 1933 many people said it was just rhetoric,” Merkel said.

I do hope someone is paying attention. M. Simon has more here, and Charles Johnson has more here.
