The obligatory link: 9/11 attacks 'an incident'
So, yeah, there's a politician in France who's spouting off about how the deaths on 9/11 are equal in number to the number of deaths in Iraq per month. What's sad is that he got off on a decent footing: "...in an interview published on Wednesday with the Catholic newspaper La Croix during which he praised Islamic leaders for condemning the attacks on the World Trade Centre and the Pentagon." But no, he had to get his digs and attempted belittlement in. Any surprise, really, from someone who "was convicted of Holocaust denial after he declared in 1987 that the gas chambers used by Nazi Germany to exterminate Jews were a "detail in the history of World War II"."?
Frankly, I feel bad even giving additional forum to something like this, but it's worth knowing about.
