British FM slams Ahmadinejad''s Holocaust dismissal as "abhorrent, ignorant".
Friday slammed Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's dismissal of the
Holocaust as "abhorrent as well as ignorant."
"President Ahmadinejad's repeated denials of the Holocaust are abhorrent,
as well as ignorant. It is very important that the world community stands up
against this tide of abuse," Miliband said in a statement. Ahmadinejad said the Holocaust was a "myth" as he addressed the annual Quds
Day rally in Tehran, reiterating comments that have previously sparked outrage
around the world. "Iran's people have a great history and culture. I cannot believe that the
vast majority of them want to rewrite this chapter of history rather than
focus on the future," The British top diplomat noted, adding that coincidence
of today's comments with the start of Jewish New Year "only adds to the insult."
"The very existence of this regime is an insult to the dignity of the
people. They (Western powers) launched the myth of the Holocaust. They lied,
they put on a show and then they support the Jews," Ahmadinejad addressed a
crowd at University of Tehran earlier today.
