Stirring Up Antisemitism in Iran

Posted By admin On January 5, 2011 @ 10:52 am In Middle East | Comments Disabled

On December 14 2005, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad became the first senior Iranian politician to deny the Holocaust.

His government achieved another first recently, by officially allowing the propagation of the fake “Iranian holocaust” story. In this story, two Jewish saints ordered the massacre of more than 70,000 Iranians.

The propagation of such antisemitic narrative by the government is unprecedented in Iranian history.
