David Duke attends Iran's holocaust conference.

David Duke, former Grand Dragon of the KKK, former Louisiana state representative, and former candidate for Louisiana governor and president of the United States, has found new and more responsive constituencies. For the past few years, he has been busy peddling his racial and political message to unsavory audiences in Russia, Ukraine, and the Middle East. In mid-December, Mr. Duke created a mild media storm by speaking at a conference in Tehran on the Holocaust, convened by the president of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who is infamous for his tirades against the United States and his threats to "wipe Israel off the map," not to mention being one of the leading state sponsors of international terrorism.

In June 2006, Duke was a speaker at a conference in Moscow entitled, "The White World's Future," convened by Pavel Tulaev, an outspoken advocate of Aryan Paganism and national socialism. In November 2005, Duke was the guest of Syria's terror regime leader, Bashar al-Assad. In an "anti-Zionist" speech broadcast over Syria's state-owned television, Duke referred to Assad as the "great peace-loving president of Syria."
