Ahmadinejad, addressing an estimated crowd of 30,000 in Tehran’s Asadi (Freedom) Square in a speech also broadcast live on state TV, condemned the “arrogance” of Western powers.
Ahmadinejad also described the Holocaust as a “story,” which he said was used to create Israel.
“The Iranian nation has smashed a new and modern idol. The world arrogance [the United States] and colonialists [the West], in order to dominate the world, created an idol called the Zionist regime [Israel],” Ahmadinejad said. “The spirit of this idol was a story called the Holocaust. … The Iranian nation with courage and wisdom smashed this idol to free the people of the West [of its hold].”
Ahmadinejad has previously described the Holocaust as a myth. source – NY Post
