Barkley of Kentucky, a member of a congressional committee investigating Nazi atrocities, views the evidence at first hand at Buchenwald concentration camp. Weimar, Germany. Americans even marched german civilians through the camp so they could see with their own eyes what their nation had wrought.

Germany - U.S. President Barack Obama said today Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who again this week called the Holocaust a “great deception,” should visit the site of the Buchenwald concentration camp.

In an interview in Germany with NBC News shortly before making his own trip to Buchenwald to pay homage to victims of World War Two and the Holocaust, Obama was asked what he thought the Iranian leader could learn from his visit to the site.

“He should make his own visit,” Obama said. “I have no patience for people who would deny history. And the history of the Holocaust is not something speculative.”

This week Ahmadinejad called the Holocaust a “great deception” during a speech containing his latest verbal assault on Israel, which the Islamic Republic does not recognize.

Obama noted that his great uncle helped liberate a camp of Buchenwald during World War Two. The concentration camp in eastern Germany was created by the Nazis and an estimated 56,000 people, mostly Jews, were killed there.

hopefully obama will see the history of the jewish nation and not equate palestinian suffering for the last 60 years to the right the jews to settle in their homeland.

The country deed not has him as a president, it's the quite opposite, he has the country as citizens. And someone is not satisfied then he has an other choice, prison for life time. So it's not so terrible as you put it.

Although I am just a citizen - not the president of the united states of America, I could add to his wards: every Jew have an obligation to visit the holocaust museum to have the visual information about our history. It's the worst thing and a big embarrassment when someone denies it and not having the right answer.

Those in the know realize that the President of Islamic Republic of Iran is not the one in charge there. The presidency is voted in by the public. However, the real power lies in the "Rahbare Enqelab" or Supreme Leader. The "Leader" is elected by the "Assembly of Experts" and has the power to dismiss the President. The true leader of Iran is The Grand Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. It is my belief that he is using the Meshuggene, Mr. Im-In-a-jihad as a buffer for his own demented policies. A pox on both their houses.

I almost can't believe what I heard Tom Brokaw asking Obama...."what do you think the Israelis can learn from Buchenwald" as if we need to learn a history lesson about what the Germans YiMachshimom did to us and apply it to our treatment of the Palestinians. Obama, to his credit said there is no equivalence (between the German treatment of the Jews and the Israeli treatment of the Palestinians) Brokaw is a complete moron and I am glad that I don't have a TV so I don't have to put up with his idiotic self righteous questions that characterizes so many in the liberal, chattering classes.

President Obama is smart, steady, and likes us. We should give him our full support. I speak as a Republican who voted for him. He knows history, religion, and reads books. Baruch Hashem, he was elected.

Oh yeah? We know how many books Bush read. What are the odds that if Obama's reading list is ever released it will turn out to be smaller than Bush's?

Don't make stupid comments. Obama is not "finding ways to make him happy". If you can tell me one thing Obama has DONE to make this pig happy, by all means let us all know. By DONE I mean an action that Obama has actually taken (not something you are speculating on).

Bush allowed Iran to spend the better part of 6 years (that we know of) building nukes... and we know they were running reactors before Obama became prez. Obama has been president for 5 months... how is THIS his fault?

Bush was president for 8 months before 9/11... yet foolish people say it was 100% Clinton's fault. Doesn't the same logic of the fools apply here?

Go figure!
