Great Moments in Sucking Up to Israel

In the latest twist in the unseemly contest between Obamanation and Mitt Romney to see just how low each can go in sucking up to the Israelis, Romney has announced that he would "press for an indictment of Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on charges of inciting genocide." (Mitt Romney says he would indict Ahmadinejad for genocide incitement,, 29/9/12)

The announcement reportedly came "moments after a phone conversation with Israeli prime minister Binyamin Netanyahu." (ibid)

What a surprise! Good one, Mitt!

But you're a bit slow, buddy. Our very own Kevin Rudd, once-upon-a-time Australian Prime Minister and Foreign Minister, and now not-so-humble backbencher, beat you to the punch years ago, also during an election campaign as it happens, that of 2007 to be precise.

For the curious story of how Krudd conceived (actually had it conceived for him) the risible idea of dragging the Eye-ranian president off to the International Court of Justice (ICJ) on a charge of inciting genocide but quietly, and much to the chagrin of our local Israel firsters, dropped the idea a year into his prime ministership, scan my posts under the label Rudd government below, beginning with Testing Time for Rudd (21/12/07) and ending with Unleashing the Zionist Settler Within (15/11/08).

And Krudd, remember, is the Great White Hope of the Australian Labor Party today. God help us.

Holocaust denial=Genocide=Blasphemy.
Didn't the other Grand Guignol character equated Holocaust denial with "desecration", "destruction of churches"?
