Mahmoud Ahmadinejad denies that the holocaust ever happened, that it was a fiction created to enable the foundation of the state of Israel. Having spoken to actual survivors of Nazi death camps, as well as seen photos taken by a veteran who liberated Buchenwald, I think I believe mine own eyes and ears rather than the gratuitous assertions of a madman.
One of my family members was there and opened the gates at Buchenwald. Within a couple of days of opening the camp he participated with the Allies when they marched every man and women from a nearby village at bayonet point through the gates to bear witness of the atrocity.
Just as late as last month this madman is still denying the Holocaust. You can read about it in the Huffington Post, and the Guardian. Read the full text of Ahmadinejad’s Sept 2009 address to the UN. As a Twelver, Ahmadinejad finishes his speech praying for the return of the Twelfth Imam. Ahmadinejad sees himself as a precursor to the return of the Twelfth Imam, whose return is preceded by death and destruction. So welcome Ahmadinejad to the NIP Famous Prevaricators Hall of Shame.
