Iranian President Calls Holocaust a 'Myth'

From the Associated Press via Yahoo!News:
TEHRAN, Iran - Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad escalated his anti-Israeli rhetoric Wednesday, calling the Holocaust a "myth" used by Europeans to create a Jewish state in the heart of the Islamic world.

His remarks drew swift condemnation from Israel, Germany, France and the European Commission. Germany said the remarks would affect upcoming negotiations over Iran's nuclear program.

Ahmadinejad last week questioned whether the Nazi destruction of 6 million European Jews during World War II occurred and said Israel should be moved to Europe. He also provoked an international outcry in October when he called for Israel to be "wiped off the map."
Ahmadinejad has to push this denial of history to help justify calling for Israel's eradication. Keep in mind that this pinhead is still desperately seeking nuclear weapons, and has received help in developing missiles from North Korean madman Kim Jong-il.

What was that somebody said about an "Axis of Evil"?
