Rouhani "Recognizes Holocaust", HPers Hate on Israel

The Huffington Post covered the news that new Iranian president Rouhani, as part of his "warm the West" campaign, has stated that he recognizes the Holocaust occurred (hooray), although he leaves the question of the exact number killed "up to historians" and didn't use the term "Holocaust."

Naturally, this results in over 900 comments, but they weren't all hating on Israel or denying the Holocaust. Some of them were against Iran/Islam or skeptical that the president meant what he said. But there were a great many that did the typical HPer talking point salad when the Holocaust is brought up: hate on Israel and Jews for remembering or mentioning the Holocaust. Here's just a sampling.
