BERLIN (Reuters) - Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad told Germans they should no longer allow themselves to be held prisoner by a sense of guilt over the Holocaust and reiterated doubts that the Holocaust even happened.

In an interview with Germany's Der Spiegel magazine, Ahmadinejad said he doubted Germans were allowed to write "the truth" about the Holocaust and said he was still considering traveling to Germany for the World Cup soccer tournament.

"I believe the German people are prisoners of the Holocaust. More than 60 million were killed in World War Two … The question is: Why is it that only Jews are at the center of attention?," he said in the interview published on Sunday.

"How long is this going to go on?" he added. "How long will the German people be held hostage to the Zionists?… Why should you feel obligated to the Zionists? You've paid reparations for 60 years and will have to pay for another 100 years."

I think he's just bitter that Hitler didn't finish the job.

He can say this because He would feel no guilt over doing
it himself.

Its all the Jews' fault. Ahmedinejad sounds like a neo-Nazi Holocaust denier... no wait - he is one! I mean, look how he sees it: six million Jews weren't exterminated by Nazi Germany. It was just a gigantic Jewish plot to swindle the Germans. After 60 years, we still have people doubting it ever happened. That's what the pasaage of time does to the truth. We have to keep it alive.

People ask, "How could Nazi Germany have been allowed to happen?"

Well, we're watching it all over again.
