Ahmadinejad proud of Holocaust denial

Please note before reading this article, the JIDF is now among over 100 organizations taking a stand for freedom in Iran.

TEHRAN, Iran (Times of India) TEHRAN: Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said that he was proud of the anger he had caused by calling the Holocaust a "myth," just days before he is due to address the UN General Assembly.

"The anger of the world's professional killers is a source of pride for us," the official IRNA news agency quoted Ahmadinejad as saying, in an apparent reference to arch-foe Israel and the United States.

Western governments expressed outrage at the Iranian president's remarks, made during a keynote speech on Friday to an annual mass rally in support of the Palestinians.

"The pretext for establishing the Zionist regime is a lie... a lie which relies on an unreliable claim, a mythical claim, and the occupation of Palestine has nothing to do with the Holocaust," Ahmadinejad had said.

Washington said that the comments were "baseless, ignorant and hateful."

The European Union said they "encourage anti-Semitism and hatred."

Despite Ahmadinejad's defiant defence of his controversial remark, an aide insisted earlier today that he would be heading to the UN General Assembly with a message of peace.
