M. Ahmadinejad's solemn revisionist declaration (July 7, 2013)


Whilst their counterparts in France seem to have passed over it in silence, the information has been put out by the American and Israeli media.
Here, for example, is a report of July 8 by the Washington Times (http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2013/jul/8/irans-president-ahmadinejad-touts-achievement-adva/):

Iran’s President Ahmadinejad touts achievement: Advancing Holocaust denials
By Cheryl K. Chumley The Washington Times 
Monday, July 8, 2013
Iran’s Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said during Sunday’s farewell ceremony that one of his biggest accomplishments while president was advancing the perception that the Holocaust never happened.
“That was a taboo topic that no one in the West allowed to be heard,” he said, The Times of Israelreported. “We put it forward at the global level. That broke the spine of the Western capitalistic regime.”
Mr. Ahmadinejad’s remarks were on the Iranian Fars news agency in Arabic, but they were omitted from the site’s English version, The Times of Israel reported.
In another part of his speech, Mr. Ahmadinejad said the Arab region should ban [sic] together and take revenge on Israel for its leaders’ treatment of Palestinians.
“We have two missions: One is developing Iran, and the other one is reforming the world,” Mr. Ahmadinejad said, The Times of Israel reported. “Some imagine that these two are separate issues and that we should just deal with Iran and forget the world, but we believe that these two are interrelated and binding issues.”
Incoming President-Elect Hassan Rouhani wasn’t impressed with Mr. Ahmadinejad’s remarks, calling it “hate rhetoric,” and saying such rhetoric had nearly brought Iran to the brink of war, The Times of Israel reported.

My comment: To my knowledge, this is at least the sixth time that Ahmadinejad has had the courage to speak out against the myth of the Holocaust. Here he has done so in a more solemn and definitive tone than ever.
The last time, on February 2, 2012, opening a conference in Tehran, he awarded me the first "prize for courage, resistance and combativeness" before granting me a brief private interview. He also bestowed an award on Vincent Reynouard, represented by Marie Brunet. Also participating at that conference were Maria Poumier, Dieudonné M'Bala M'Bala, Paul-Eric Blanrue (through a representative), Béatrice Pignède and, from Italy, professor Claudio Moffa. Some American guests, a few Neturei Karta rabbis and other personalities, all hostile to revisionism, attended as well. From the time of the first "Holocaust" conference (December 11-12, 2006) both sides have, in equitable manner, been allowed to speak freely.
