Imran Khan: Toons worse than Holocaust

Speaking on Five Live Drive moments ago, cricketer turned politician Imran Khan said the Danish cartoons are worse than the Holocaust.

Update. Here's the clip (mp3 250kB, 15 secs)

“I don’t think the message has got through that for us it’s far more painful than perhaps even the Holocaust for the Jews. Any caricature or any ridicule or any humiliation of the holy prophet is far more painful for the Muslims.”

What next? "Toons worse than everything bad that's ever happened times infinity, plus one!" says Muslim.

Update 2, February 28 8:45am
. I notice that the BBC has chosen to pretend this interview never happened. Radio Five Live (R5L) is usually very keen to claim whatever exclusives it gets ahead of the higher profile news programming on Radio 4. It’s a news and sports channel so one would think that a major ex-sports figure turned politician making outrageous statements on their station would be the ideal R5L story. Evidently not. Khan’s interviewer, Peter Allen, didn’t pick up on the Holocaust mention at all; the MSM has conceded so much ground over the cartoons that comparisons between drawings and the murder of millions now pass without comment. However, the fact that Allen failed to do his job doesn’t explain why the station has chosen to bury the news. One reason may lie in the fact that R5L’s station controller Bob Shennan is also head of the BBC Asian Network. When the BBC was announcing cutbacks to programming, Shennan was sending all his staff on ‘diversity’ seminars. Whatever the reason for ignoring Khan's opinions, my view of the BBC as the Islamic PR Agency is reinforced.

It will be interesting to see if the BBC decides to cover similar comments made by George Galloway (it was the BBC monitoring service that produced the transcript of Galloway’s interview). If so, they won’t have an excuse for brushing the Khan interview under the bokhara.

One more thing - Imran Khan is the current Chancellor of Bradford University.

"the Danish cartoons are worse than the Holocaust".

Worse for whom, I wonder?

Yeah, a dozen cartoons versus six million dead. No contest is there?

So a few crappy cartoons are worse than people being gassed, tourchered, treated as slaves and brutally killed some where some people need to get a proper perspective on things

Yes guys but think it through.

If you are an Islamist then the Holocaust didn't happen. Any real slight however mild is far worse than something imaginary.

Imran's a good Muslim when it suits him. What did he do when he was bedding all those women? Turn the Prophet's picture to face the wall?

Hang on, you can't have pictures of the Prophet, so he didn't even have to do that! (No 3D pictures at your grandmother's house to embarrass you, either).

Well, of course Muslims feel more pain over this than Jews over the Holocaust.

Jews don't have feelings, don't you know? Haven't you ever seen Star Trek?

Other than his star status at Cricket, does he have any intellectual credentials at all? Neither he nor the "youneeversity" can expect to have any credibility at all with a comment like that. I'm sure if half the Islamic population of Europe were starved, gassed, and experimented on there would be a) a terribly outcry among Moslems and b) an audible sigh of relief from Europeans.

Criticism of the holy prophet is what is sorely needed for the edification of the entire world! Such as:

Even a cursory reading of the Koran (Q'uran) will lead even the most dense observer to the understanding that the Muslim holy book is a third party explanation of the fantasy of a paranoid schizophrenic and his invisible companion asking Allah for permission to force his insane visions on the whole of humanity! This has led a whole people to in fact declare war on the rest of the world. Any other explanation is lacking in cohesion!
