Ahmadinejad doesn't have to do a great deal of thinking, because for him every question has the same answer. The Iranian president delivered a speech last month about how the "Zionists" orchestrated the Holocaust in order to occupy "a certain land." His speech mirrors Hitler's language in Mein Kampf -- which is available for free online, by the way. He uses the same sorts of metaphors as Hitler, calling Jews "ticks" who pollute politics, culture and the economy. Here he is on the problems of the world today:

If a war breaks out in Iraq, we believe it is due to the provocation of the Zionists. If it happens in Afghanistan, it is because of their provocation. If Sudan is oppressed, it is due to Zionist seduction. We consider all the arrogant, colonialist schemes to be inspired by the Zionists.
