Holocaust a myth, Israel no future?
From correspondents in Tehran
IRANIAN President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said the Holocaust was a "myth" as he addressed the annual Quds Day rally in Tehran overnight, reiterating comments that sparked outrage around the world.
President Ahmadinejad raised the stakes against Israel and called the Holocaust a lie, just as world powers try to decide how to deal with the nuclear ambitions of an Iran in political turmoil.
The US, Britain, France and Germany all issued statements slamming his latest outburst.
"The very existence of this regime is an insult to the dignity of the people," the hardline Mr Ahmadinejad said of Iran's arch-foe, Israel.
"They (Western powers) launched the myth of the Holocaust. They lied, they put on a show and then they support the Jews."
"If as you claim the Holocaust is true, why can a study not be allowed?" he said to chants of "Death to Israel" from the crowd gathered for the annual display of solidarity with the Palestinians.
|Poor foolish Ahmadinejad. He
is the one who is doomed. Fancy challenging Yahweh and His people.
Unremarkably there is a growing number of intellectually challenged and
spiritually dead people in the western world who
agree with Ahmadinejad about the Holocaust the Jewish people suffered
through. Satan is alive and well, and recruiting fools by the thousands
daily. This bloke who "leads" Iran is amongst his brightest apprentices.
My 2 cents worth ... Keygar
