Polish lawmakers condemn Iranian president's calling the Holocaust a myth By The Associated Press WARSAW - Polish lawmakers condemned Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad yesterday for recently dismissing the Holocaust as a myth, and said such statements were "absolutely unacceptable for Poland, on whose land Nazis set up death camps." "The memory of the Holocaust in Poland is vivid and painfully present," the parliamentary commission on foreign relations said in a statement. "Millions of Polish citizens fell victim to the genocidal and anti-Semitic policies of the Third Reich." Polish lawmakers also expressed "anxiety and indignation" with Ahmadinejad's call for the elimination of Israel. "This sort of speech has no place in civilized political debate," they said, adding that such statements "can be read as a call to war." Ahmadinejad has drawn wide condemnation after he described the Holocaust as a "myth" earlier this month, and for calling two months earlier for Israel to be "wiped off the map."
