AFP: Ahmadinejad repeats Holocaust is a ‘myth’

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has repeated his view that the Holocaust of Jews under Nazi Germany was a “myth” and argued that Palestinians and Iraqis were suffering from “the real Holocaust”.

“Questioning the myth of the Holocaust and the creation of the phoney regime of Zionism has haunted them,” the president said in a speech marking the 27th anniversary of
Iran’s Islamic revolution.

“For more than 60 years, this myth has enabled the Zionists to blackmail the Western countries, justify the killing of women and children and make them refugees in occupied land,” he said.

“The real Holocaust is happening today in Palestine and Iraq. If you are looking for the real Holocaust, look at the poor Iraqi people,” he said in the speech to huge crowds gathered in central Tehran Saturday.

Ahmadinejad is a fanatical extremist who is deliberately provoking Israel.

Does the Iranian President REALLY think he will get away with this? Or is there a sense of martyrdom with the returning Imam fallacy?

Now, onto Ahmadinejad’s pronouncements on the Muhammad caricatures……

Speaking out against the publication in Western newspapers of caricatures depicting the Prophet Mohammed, he said: “They are hostages to the Zionists.”

“How come insulting the prophet is free, but investigating the Holocaust is banned,” asked the president, who has already drawn Western condemnation for his questioning of the Holocaust and his call for Israel to be “wiped off the map”.

“We suggested to them that we will send an unbiased group to look at your documents in Europe and inform the nation, but you will not even allow your own scholars to invesigate the Holocaust,” Ahmadinejad said.

“This is the same way as you dealt with things in the dark ages.”

Flap handicaps Mahmoud Ahmadinejad does not survive the year as President of Iran.
