Ahmadinejad Calls The Holocaust a Lie

Iranian "President" Mahmoud Ahmadinejad spoke at Friday prayers at Tehran University and spoke this pearl of wisdom:

The pretext for the creation of the Zionist regime is false.  It is a lie based on an unprovable and mythical claim.  Confronting the Zionist regime is a national and religious duty.

Oh goody.  The Obama Administration has played nice with Ahmadinejad for eight months and this is what we get for their efforts.

To be sure, White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said Ahmadinejad's statement "only serves to isolate Iran further from the world."  This is the same Robert Gibbs who less than seven weeks ago called Ahmadinejad Iran's "elected leader."

How isolated can Iran be when President Obama won't criticize them for killing their own people?  How isolated can Iran be when President Obama's decision to abandon missile defense was done in part because of Iran?  How isolated can Iran be when the Obama Administration wants Iran's help in Afghanistan?

I've said it before and I'll say it again.  Nothing good can come of the Obama Administration's policy of engagement with Iran.
