ON THE OTHER HAND, IT WILL WIN HIM A VISIT FROM DAVID DUKE:

Germany summons Iran envoy over Holocaust remarks (Louis Charbonneau, 09 Dec 2005, Reuters)

The German Foreign Ministry said on Friday it had summoned Iran's ambassador to protest against suggestions by Iran's president that the Holocaust might not have happened and that Israel should be moved to Europe.

Ministry spokesman Martin Jaeger said at a government news conference the decision to deliver a formal protest to Iran's envoy in Berlin was meant to show that Berlin was taking the president's comments very seriously.

"We have summoned the Iranian ambassador," Jaeger told reporters. "When one summons an ambassador, then you signal the start of something in diplomacy, that there are grounds for serious discussion."


Yielding the moral highground to the Germans on the Holocaust is an impressive screwup even for a nutjob.

Well, he wants to make a big bang.

Will he meet with Cindy Sheehan next?
