A Furnace

What a banner day for news! Apparently crazy asses are running many high-profile positions! Let's look at Iran, for instance:

President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad called the Holocaust "a myth". Now, in Mahmoud's defense, this remark was made in the middle of some Middle Eastern unrest with Palestine and Israel. And also in his defense, it's easy to misinterpret what happened in Europe in the 1930's and 40's. If you've never talked to or believed a Jewish person who lived
through it all, it's easy to assume that crudely tattooed numbers on your arm was just a fad and so was living behind barbed wire and barely eating while working your ass off day in and day out. Oh, those black and white pin suit outfits? Tres fab in Auschwitz. And what of those furnaces? Well, it was awfully cold even for people so fashionably conscious. And all those that seemed to just disappear? That's probably just what happened. They just disappeared.

It's like something you probably read in a book-a non fiction book called WORLD HISTORY and sadly if you don't believe the words and the numbers, than there are pictures and even films that document it and even more sad is that there are people who have been living their lives with the scars, both physical and mental, and must hear some inconsiderate world leader discredit all the horrors and losses they've had to live with. It is both ignorant, arrogant, and cold to refuse to believe the horrid truths laid out before you. These people didn't ask for what happened to them and their loved ones and to discredit it is to keep those furnaces lit.
