President of Iran Denies that Holocaust Denial Conference Ever Happened
Edited on Sat Dec-16-06 01:04 AM by oberliner
One day after hosting an international conference devoted to denying that the Holocaust ever happened, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad made headlines again today by holding another conference to deny that the earlier conference ever happened.

President Ahmadinejad's Holocaust denial conference was a page one story in newspapers around the world this week, making some observers wonder why the Iranian leader would hold another conference attempting to deny that the earlier conference had occurred.

But in Tehran today, President Ahmadinejad welcomed delegates from around the world, proclaiming, "The first annual conference of Holocaust denial deniers will now come to order."

The Iranian president then launched into a blistering forty-five minute speech denying the existence of the other conference, at which he reportedly gave a blistering forty-five minute speech.

3. how does he account for the presense of david duke?
which I also find interesting, because not only does duke hate Jews, he also hates African Americans

Again Ahmadinejad has exposed himself to the world

5. From the article:
Present at the conference of Holocaust denial deniers was former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke, who vehemently denied having attended the earlier meeting.

7. Interesting, because he had an interview with Wolf Blitzer on CNN
Incidently, isn't it a violation of law for an American citizen to go to Iraq? I know it is if an American citizen goes to Cuba without government permision.

Will david duke be charged when he returns

6. I think it's likely he'll later deny he denied there was a Holocaust denial conference.
