Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says the Holocaust is a "myth" and has suggested that the Jewish state of Israel be moved to Germany or Austria Europe or North America.

Addressing a gathering in the Iranian city of Zahedan last week, Mr. Ahmadinejad said the West has "fabricated a legend" which it holds "above God" of the systematic killing of 6.6 million Jews by Nazi Germany during World War II.

Ahmadinejad said that if Europeans insist the Holocaust occurred, then they are responsible and should pay the price.

"Today, they have created a myth in the name of Holocaust and consider it to be above God, religion and the prophets," Ahmadinejad said adding . "If you committed this big crime, then why should the oppressed Palestinian nation pay the price?"

"This is our proposal: If you committed the crime,then give a part of your own land in Europe, the United States, Canada or Alaska to them so that the Jews can establish their country," he said.

Ahmadinejad`s comments drew quick condemnations from Israel, the United States and Europe, which warned he is hurting Iran`s position in talks aimed at resolving suspicions about his regime`s nuclear program.

The White House said Ahmadinejad`s words "only underscore why it is so important that the international community continue to work together to keep Iran from developing nuclear weapons." Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman Mark Regev said the speech illustrated "the mind-set of the ruling clique in Tehran and indicate clearly the extremist policy goals of the regime." The German government summoned the Iranian charge d`affaires to express its displeasure.

Here are the questions
1) Is the holocaust a reality or spiced up with exaggeration?
2) What about Ahmedinejd’s proposal of moving Israel to Europe or North America?
3) Is this justified that Palestinians pay the price of “holocaust” committed by Germany ?
4) What could be the impact of Ahmedinejad’s statement on Iran, which is already under criticism for its nuclear programme?

is truly a brave and good man. Unlike other leaders of muslim countries he has stood up to the tyrants rather than waiver to their demands. He has my full support and i am a sunni!

shabaz, United Arab Emirates - 03 January, 2006

ahmadinjad a great man

i dont agree with the holocaust was a myth but i agree with everything else, the zionists r nazi scumbags and the state of israel is an evil blot on this world

Hitler was a murderer ...

No dout Hitler was a murderer, but so are the zionists. How many Palestinians have been killed by the zionists since the creation of Israel in 1948 ? The zionists took their land, killed them in mass, killed their leaders, drained their water, uprooted their only income of Olive trees, blocked their roads, closed their schools, cut their contact with the outside world. Keep them under the harshest financial(no jobs) and social ( can't see their family members in other towns) conditions. What I am saying if Hitler was so hurrible, why so many of them live inside Israel?

Ahmadinejad Suggestions

In response to Joe from the United States who launched a verbal attack on Khalid Rahim, Canada, I say to Joe in the United States:

Joe, please stop insulting people because of their religion or beliefs. We all share the earth and we all live together, so we must tolerate our different faiths.

I know lots of people have said bad things about other peoples' religions, e.g. Muslims saying bad things about Christians and Jews, and Christians and Jews saying bad things about Muslims, vice versa, even using words like "kuffaar".

I must admit, I myself have criticised people of different religions and beliefs aswell, but that was when I was a bit younger when I didn't have knowledge and I was ignorant, but I have learnt from my mistakes and now I know better and I dare not criticise any person of any religion or belief system.

The way forward is to learn to respect people of all different faiths and to come to common terms and understanding between people.

Attacking people because of their religion or belief system is wrong and upsetting. It creates hatred and leads to crime.

If we didn't tolerate and respect eachothers' faith and beliefs, civilisation would be ruined.

So I'd like to take this opportunity to personally say to everybody who lives in this world: I, Razur Rahman, am sorry for offending and upsetting anyone by attacking their faith or belief system. And I am sorry for saying any other bad comments about anything else to anyone who may have been offended. O people of the world, please forgive me because I regret the bad things that I said to people and I've stoppped saying those bad things.

Razur Rahman.

Razur Rahman, United Arab Emirates - 04 January, 2006

Israel is already the fetish of Iran

The Irianian president, for example, has shown how ontologies of racism and anti-semitism merge with, and emerge historically from, a`beastly theology`
As these critics have shown, what racism, anti-semitism and other systems of social domination have in common is an ideological metaphysic rooted in humiliation of muslim being - renunciation of our own muslim nature. He seeks a wrong definition !

Shokat Saleem, Georgia - 05 January, 2006

A sick, barbaric man

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad . That a leader of a major country is so twisted by hate is a terrible and dangerous thing. Meanwhile, in his own country, women are stoned to death for adultery.

Variety of comments

I have read the comments on the subject and noted with interest the varying opinions by muslims. It appears that those that can spell and are probably well read, know their history including that of the Jews. The others appear to spit venom at the Jews without rationale. As far as Ahmedinajad is concerned, anyone who finds him to be rational must themselves be mad. He certainly is not doing himself, Iran or the rest of Islam any favours. One interesting comment is the attitude of Israelis towards their G-d and religion. I certainly would agree with those that find the lack of religious observance in some Israelis to be a great negative factor. Salaam

Ram, Pakistan - 09 January, 2006

The President speaks the truth, he lays out questions that the world needs to ponder about. How was israel exactly created? why was it created? is it justified? what is its purpose? how do they treat palestinians? the reality is that israel is the worst apartheid state in the world, it not only commits daily genocide but is the 3rd largest manufacturer of weapons. 12 % of all weapons in the world r from israel, and they supply african war lords. this is fact.

Shujaat, Svalbard And Jan Mayen - 10 January, 2006

personaly i think the holocaust did happen. The Jews were treated terribly by all nations especialy the west. How i see it , Israel was created as a result of the west`s collective guilt. They have no legaly binding claim to the land that is Israel , except for wat we r led to believe through religion and unverifiable history. No court of law allows a religous book to b put forward as a legaly binding document. I think a lot of muslims r fed up of being held up for ransom through emotional blackmail (holocaust). They werent responsible for it and r fed up of it being shoved down their throats. The holocaust has been over-publicised to achieve a certain political agenda.....wat about all the crimes commited, under colonial rule, the only nuclear devices used on civilian population and the genocide of an indigenous population (native american indians) and the enslaving of another (african slaves) , were these not holocausts?

anonymous, United Arab Emirates - 10 January, 2006


Members of the nuclear club had condemned Iran on removal of seals from its nuclear research facilities, which has paved the way for the resumption of sensitive nuclear work after a two-year suspension, despite warnings from the west of possible UN sanctions.

United States government in a press statement has said that Tehran had showed “disdain for international concern” over its atomic programme by removing seals from Natanz nuclear research plant, while Russia has said that it would like to pursue Tehran through talks to halt the process of nuclear research and will ensure that Tehran should refrain from enriching uranium.

Deputy Head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran Mohammad Saeedi had told reporters during a press conference that some of the seals that were in the field of only research facilities were authorized to be removed in the presence of International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) inspectors and production of nuclear fuel will remains suspended.

Atomic powers of the world do not want that other countries should also join the nuclear club. There is no doubt that the west does not trust Iran, Syria, Yemen and the likes, after the 9/11 terrorist's attacks on New York and the Pentagon. The West only wants one state to be strong enough on this planet to take action against the Muslim countries and that is Israel. When the time comes, the western countries will count on Israel to drop an Atom Bomb on a particular Muslim State and it could also be Iran.

The mandate of the members of the nuclear club is safety, security, and survival of their own people. USA, Britain, France & Germany fears that if Iran will become a nuclear state, it may attack and wipe out Israel from the world map. If the western countries think that Iran should not continue its research work for enriching uranium in future, U.S. President Mr. George W. Bush should fly to Iran and meet Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, or invite him at White House and listen to his grievances against Israel.

It is unfortunate that big powers of the world could not solve the long awaited political differences between the countries and their undue favoritism towards Israel have forced the present Iranian regime to resume its nuclear research work in Natanz nuclear research plant.

Time has come for the west to practically demonstrate its willingness to resolve differences between the countries within a specified period of time, e.g. issues between Palestine and Israel, India and Pakistan, as any more lip service which is going on since 1947 to the affected countries will not serve any purpose.

If the west wants Iran to suspend its nuclear programme, then it should also ask IAEA inspectors to visit Israel and see how many atom bombs Israel can drop on the Muslim Countries? If a Muslim State like Iran with its nuclear capability can be dangerous either for the western countries or for Israel itself, than Israel as a nuclear state is also dangerous for, Iran as well as for other Muslim countries in the world.

The possibility that west want to see Iran as a non-nuclear state is very rare, unless west ask IAEA inspectors to Israel completely dismantle the nuclear capability of Israel and make the entire region a nuclear free zone.

Nut Case........

Ahmedinejad is a nut case far more than the Turks who deny Armenian Genocide where 2.5 millions Armenians were massarced in Turkey.

Javed Malik, Pakistan - 11 January, 2006

Israel The Enemy of Muslims

The comments of Iranian president Ahmedinejad are the Slogan against injustice of West particularly U.S.A against Muslims.Of what kind justice is this to impose the U.N sanctions on Iran while giving a free hand to Israel with full finincial and political support?
In the light of Iranian reaction the Muslims countries should gather togather under the Flag of Islam like a body so that they may have a chance to survive freely with promoting their own cultural,economical and social activities.

Ayaz Shabbir, Pakistan - 16 January, 2006

Pray for world peace

To Tarek Masud and all who believe that Israel should be moved to Europe:

Since Muslims came as invaders in Hindu India, why should Hindus suffer in parting with their lands to create Muslim Pakistan and Bangladesh. Let the illegtimate offsprings of Muslim invaders be moved to the country of their origin.

In their 800 years of tyrannical rule, Muslims rulers of India could only convert 17% of the Hindus to Islam, no matter whether they used lures or sword.

Moving Israel to Europe is synonmous to moving Pak and Bangladesh to erstwhile Persia (I will let you figure out the exact location on todays map :))

Chan, United Kingdom - 17 January, 2006


Iran has the right to produce nuclear energy for domestic use. Certainly, holocaust has been over publicized to achieve political motives. Israel is an illegal child of the west moving world towards III world war.

Irfan Qureshi, Pakistan - 18 January, 2006

double standards

well the iranian president is a nut case but at the end the day he speaks the truth about the double standards of the west against iran and other muslim countries. I dont know much abou holocaust so I can not and will not comment on this issue. Killing innocent people may it be jews or muslims or christians or any human isn't allowed in any faith of the earth. Islam spread via peace and harmony not with the sword. PS the u.s should and must apologise for bombing civilians in pakistani border town of bajaur and pay compensation to the family members, you have no right whatsoever coming into our land and attacking our civilians , whers your so called human rights facts and books now mr bush?? well double standards again as I said. The bigger and powerfull wins over the poor and weaker. I dont think they would've got away with attacking china or russia or any western country but since its pakistan its normal they not humans kill them who cares.

nawaz khan, Pakistan - 18 January, 2006

To Razur Rahman, United Kingdom

Of course I intended to verbally attack Khalid Rahim from Canada. He sits in the free country of Canada and enjoys Freedom that was won on the backs of others. Yet he defends radical Muslims and insults the West. He should put his money where his mouth is and return to his Muslim country and help his people. Next he'll say Iran should develop nuclear weapons. I think he is part of a sleeper cell waiting for word to detonate himself, just like the majority of Muslims living in the West are. My beef with Muslim countries is that I would probably be hung in the public square for being Christian.

Joe, United Kingdom - 18 January, 2006

Holocaust DID happen and jews HAVE been always persecuted. Personally I think persecution of jews has been their fate for their ancestral treachery. Today, Israel sits between a number of nations whose borders were drawn by hand by a british officer. Jeruselum is known as occupied territory (west bank) and the country does itself no favor by not commiting to peace. What happened to the Saudi peace proposal they threw out a few years ago? The fact is these people are nafariously treacherous genetically from their ancestors. It is this basis for which they will continue to suffer and be persecuted throughout history.
