Ahmadinejad's holocaust denial

So is anyone on the left going to excuse this :

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad told worshippers at Friday prayers at Tehran University the state of Israel was founded on "a false and mythical claim" and expressed doubts over whether the Nazi murder of around six million Jews during the Second World War was "a real event".

Speaking on Iran's national Quds Day - staged to show sympathy for the Palestinians and named after the Arabic word for Jerusalem - Mr Ahmadinejad asked: "If the Holocaust was a real event, why don't they allow research on it to clear up facts?"

It doesn't matter how much he hates the US, how wrong the actions of Israel are or even that Chavez hugs him , NOTHING justifies or excuses , whatever the 'context,' denying the holocaust .

On a much more positive note see this story here. Hat tip to Charlie Pottins on Facebook .
