Reuters: Iran's Ahmadinejad says Holocaust a myth

A sad note from the Middle East, which makes me wonder if fighting will expand into Iran.

By Christian Oliver
TEHRAN (Reuters) - Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Wednesday that the Holocaust was a myth, triggering a fresh wave of international condemnation.

Last week Ahmadinejad first aired his doubts on the veracity of the Holocaust, in which six million Jews were killed by the Nazis. His comments drew a rebuke from the
U.N. Security.

"They have fabricated a legend under the name 'Massacre of the Jews', and they hold it higher than God himself, religion itself and the prophets themselves," he told a crowd in the southeastern city of Zahedan on Wednesday.
