    A senior Iranian cleric has dismissed the Nazi Holocaust of Jews during World War II as a new "superstition" for the West, media reported on Saturday.

    "The Holocaust is nothing but superstition, but Zionists say that people of the world should be forced to accept this," he was quoted as saying by the state news agency IRNA.

    "Americans and Westerners are affected by newly appeared superstitions such as the Holocaust," he said, according to ISNA news agency.

    Why do the Iranians care if the Holocaust happened or not? It's not like they are wanting to exterminate the Jews. Why are they tring so hard to say it didn't happen? Could it be they are tring to do the same thing?

    holocaust denial is not a new thing. it goes on all the time. i do not agree with jailing deniers after all it is their freedom to be stupid. but i think the deniers should be meet head on any time encounter.

    there would be many advantages to convincing the world that the holocaust has been blown out of water, that was merely a small thing. makes the jews out to be whiners and liars..look at the money invested in remembering the holocaust. much of the jewish idenity of today is heavily invested in the holocaust....'never again'

    This is one of the things that worries me about Islam.... and before the drooling hordes bounce all over me for my 'bigotry'... I recognize that Muslims are individual people, just like everyone else. It is their system, not their faith... and the way their governments run...Those are the issues, not Muslims as people.

    Presumably they view denying the Holocaust as a way of denying the legitimacy of a Jewish state.

    Yes.
    "If a day comes when the world of Islam is duly equipped with the arms Israel has in possession, the strategy of colonialism would face a stalemate because application of an atomic bomb would not leave any thing in Israel but the same thing would just produce damages in the Muslim world", Ayatollah Ali Akbar Hashemi-Rafsanjani told the crowd at the traditional Friday prayers in Tehran.​

    I agree. Our history is who we are. We need to be aware of our history if we are to play our part in it to any effectiveness.
