Posted on 09/24/2013 9:13:29 PM PDT by Nachum
Irans new president admitted on Tuesday that the Holocaust took place, in a sharp contrast to his predecessor.
Speaking to CNNs Christiane Amanpour, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said that the Nazis committed a "reprehensible" crime against the Jewish people.
The remark came in response to Amanpours question if he accepted that the Holocaust occurred.
"I am not a historian and when it comes to speaking of the dimensions of the Holocaust it is the historians that should reflect," he said.
"But in general I can tell you that any crime that happens in history against humanity, including the crime the Nazis created towards the Jews, is reprehensible and condemnable," he added.
The comments are a complete turnaround from the rhetoric used by former Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who made it a habit to deny the Holocaust.
Ahmadinejad said in one interview the Holocaust was a colonialist plan that resulted from a lie that Israel exploits to suppress Palestinian Authority Arabs.

have to wonder which Iranian 0’ agrees with...
Does he also take the Islamics in Turkey responsible for the Armenian genocide?
The mullah charm offensive and diplomatic charade continues. Meanwhile Iran’s nuclear centrifuges keep spinning. Obama will never attack Iran. Israel can’t attack since it would suffer a devastating counterattack from the mobile short range ballistic missiles that Iran has been allowed to locate in forward Syrian locations. (it was not for nothing Iran gave aid to Assad). Israel faces the worst strategic crisis of its existence essentially alone.
Yea, no one with a brain believes he actually thinks that.
It’s a trap. Get an axe.
Taquiya on his part...
It’s a trap.......
How many times does the West have to learn and be told that it’s perfectly acceptable for a Muslim to lie his arse off to the infidel?
Probably, but primarily because Iranians and Armenians have somehow managed to be political allies in a sense and because of the whole Sunni-Shia bitterness thing.
But those would be the only reasons why he would acknowledge it.
Anyone who can read this book knows how very, very, simple it is for a Muslim to excuse a LIE. LIES, words meant to soothe and assure, mean NOTHING.
Betty Mahmoody's husband SWORE ON THE KORAN he would not keep his family in Iran longer than two weeks.
Once there, he told his hostage family that his words didn't matter...
Anyone who believes this guy is deluded.
Rouhanis says that the Holocaust was a reprehensible crime against the Jewish People. What he doesn’t say, it was reprehensible because Hitler didn’t finish the job.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.

How big of him./sarc
Translation: It was a reprehensible crime, but only against Jooos! (I guess he now claims it didn’t happen to Gypsies, Slavs, commies, mental defectives [there is a difference] and homos), so it’s no big deal.
