Holocoust Denial

    Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei

  • "Western countries allow no freedom of expression, which they claim to advocate, with regard to the myth of the massacre of Jews known as the holocaust, and nobody in the West enjoys the freedom of expression to deny it or raise doubts about it."—Ayatollah Khamenei, 2006 [1]

    President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad

  • "The Zionist regime's establishment was based on numerous deceptions and lies and one of the biggest lies was the Holocaust." — President Ahmadinejad, 2011 [2]

  • "How come when it comes to the subject of the Holocaust there is so much sensitivity?"—President Ahmadinejad, 2010 [3]

  • "They (the Western powers) launched the myth of the Holocaust. They lied, they put on a show and then they support the Jews."—President Ahmadinejad, 2009 [4]

  • "The Holocaust is a lie."—President Ahmadinejad, 2008 [5]

    Former President Ali Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani

  • "Hitler had only killed 20,000 Jews and not six million." — Ayatollah Rafsanjani[6]

    Government-Controlled Media

  • The Allies and Zionist leaders "formulated strange conceptions about the killing of Jews at Nazi camps… [and] conjured up images of gas chambers."—Hossein Amiri, 2005 [7]

  • "In recent centuries, the Jews have expanded their influence in the centers of power, particularly in Europe, through the exploitation of a great historic lie called 'the Holocaust.'"—MEHR, 2005 [8]

    Holocaust Denial Conference

  • In 2006 the Iranian government organized a conference called "Review of the Holocaust: A Global Vision." Inspired by President Ahmadinejad, the conference was attended by many infamous Holocaust deniers and was denounced by the international community.[9]
