Rebuttal, done right

In the wake of anti-Semitic comments being spewed by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu did the Jews, minorities and humanity a favor.

In his systematic effort to destroy Israel and the Jewish people, Ahmadinejad delivered a speech filled with hate and lies. The adamant Holocaust denier is a disgrace to his country and to his people. Benjamin Netanyahu, on the other hand, is a mashiach (see: angel). In his refusal to let the world forget the atrocities of the Holocaust, Netanyahu delivered a passionate, fact-laden speech directed at the G-20 council and YouTubers everywhere. Using original Nazi documents depicting their plan to exterminate the Jewish people, Netanyahu's words resonated with country leaders and the informed public.

It is time's like this when we must truly appreciate the value of social media. On September 23, 2009, the world experienced a malicious leader try to reengage the message that led to the death of 6 million Jews in Europe. On September 24, 2009 those same people were given the other option: the truth, the facts. The world is now forced to choose. To choose between Ahmadinejad's fundamentalist regime or Netanyahu's plea to remember world history.

To me, the answer is simple. To others, I can only hope that you are educated enough to understand the severity of Ahmadinejad's message and the implications it will hold. As Netanyahu illustrated, the Jews are not the only targets - never were, never will be. It is the systematic destruction of all culture groups whose mandates differ from those Ahmadinejad preach that are in danger.

The past 60 years bear witness to the uprising of mankind. Following the horror and fear the world lived in during the Second World War, humanity began to rebuild itself. How is it that only 60 years later we are back to where we started?

Please view the videos posted below. This is the beauty of social media: the truth. No longer does one have to hear a misconstrued account of what was said; the facts, the exact speeches, are now available to us. With one click of the mouse, you can determine who you wish to support: those who seek to destroy or those who seek peace. Those who build their regime on lies or those who strive on hope for the future. Those who seek to rebuild the past or those who seek to rebuild for their future.

The facts are in; the rest is up to you. We are the future, our voices count. Choose wisely.
