So he says -- I mean Ahmadinejad -- he says,
"The Zionists think that they are victims of Hitler, but they act like Hitler and behave worse than Genghis Khan," Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Sunday. He was quoted by the Iranian News Agency.
Wait, I'm sorry, but I'm not following this... they act like who? Who is this Hitler fellow? Isn't he the one that Mr. Ahmadinejad doesn't believe existed? Or at least, that he doesn't believe did anything particularly blameworthy -- that it's all a Zionist lie.
But now Ahmadinejad says that the Jews are acting like Hitler -- and that makes them worse than Genghis Khan. Why, he couldn't be accusing the "Zionists" of carrying out a Holocaust, could he?
(I wonder if Ahmadinejad pronounced "Genghis Khan" like a certain senator from Beacon Hill does...)
I don't like to judge before all the facts are in, but it's beginning to look as though President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad of Iran might have been somewhat inconsistent. But we wouldn't want to condemn the entire antisemitic program just because of a single slip-up. Perhaps an aide will issue a "clarification" later.

Given that Genghis Khan totally and utterly destroyed the Islamic empire that was ruling most of what is now Iran, I think that Ahmadinejad might regret that comparison.
Khwarezmia ruled most of Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and Iran, plus parts of Afghanistan, Pakistan, Kazakhstan and, I think, Azerbaijan. Stupidly the shah decided to execute one of the Ambassadors from the Mongols, mistreat the other two and kill a trading party. The mongols invaded as a result and in 2-3 years deposed the emperor, besieged and destroyed most of the major cities and slaughtered probably millions. Places like Merv, which had a significant irrigation system were turned, quite literally into deserts. (see Wikipedia)
If the Israelis were really acting worse than Genghis Khan they would be systematically destroying every building in the Gaza strip and Southern Lebanon and killing the millions of residents. So far the two Israeli attacks have killed maybe 200-300 people, perhaps 1% of the required numbers to be a truly Khan-like.
