While his BFF claims to be “leading the global fight against anti-Semitism.”
(CNSNews.com) – As the world on Wednesday marked the Nazis’ systematic killing of six million Jews during World War II an official Iranian website linked to Ayatollah Ali Khamenei posted a video quoting the supreme leader’s questioning of the Holocaust.
“No-one in European countries dares to speak about holocaust [sic] while it is not clear whether the core of this matter is a reality or not,” read the English subtitles accompanying audio from an excerpt of a speech by Khamenei, over images of the entrance to Auschwitz and piles of Jewish corpses.
“Even if it is a reality, it is not clear how it happened,” he adds.
In the video, released on the khamenei.ir site, Khamenei continues to say: “Speaking about holocaust and expressing doubts about it is considered to be a great sin.”
“If someone does this, they stop, arrest, imprison and and sue him. This is while they claim to be the supporters of freedom.”
Images are shown of infamous Holocaust deniers and revisionists David Irving, Robert Faurisson, Ursula Haverbeck, the late Roger Garaudy, and Wolfgang Frohlich, an Austrian city councilor who in a letter to Pope Benedict XVI called the Holocaust a “satanic lie.”
Over a photo showing President Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu walking together Khamenei continues, “This is the ignorance that exists in today’s world.”
