Did Radical Muslims Write Seinfeld?

Iran's president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, has, in the words of the Guardian, "dismissed the killing of 6 million Jews by the Nazis in the second world war as a "myth" and called for Israel to be "wiped off the map."

This is one of the more curious things in Islamo-fascism - this effort to both deny that the Holocaust occured, while suggesting that it would be a good thing if it had occured, or would occur.

It reminds a bit of the famous episode in Seinfeld, in which a young reporter outs Jerry, and Jerry spends the rest of the episode denying that he is gay, "not that there's anything wrong with that."

I expect any day now we'll get exactly that Ahmadinejad quote: "Hitler did not attempt genocide against the Jews. Not that there's anything wrong with that."
