    He said that? Citation?

    He denies it as a matter of state propaganda to push conspiracy theory and terrorism against a Western liberal democracy. Let's have no doubt about that. This "he's just trolling" crap is for idiots.

    Surely we will not fall for this diversionary tactic, only to be "surprised" later when they roll out a full nuclear arsenal.

    Hitler talked nice for quite a while, too, before he attacked England.

    Of course, any implication is open to a huge level of interpretation but when I watched the interview I got the sense he did believe the holocaust was true but enjoyed getting on Jewish people's nerves. I'd need to look it up, as can anyone. Too busy at the moment. Again, it was NOT a direct quote to that affect, only an implication. If you're asking for a direct quote, I don't have one.

    You don't think he does it to push conspiracy theory and terrorism against Israel? That's unbelievable.

    Not amount of watching youtube changes the FACT that the Iranian regime employs holocaust denial as a tool of conspiracy theory for terrorism. I would not degrade myself as to entertain any notion that Apieceof**** is just trolling.

    It's pointless to debate anyone who would write off holocaust denial by a terrorist state as "just trolling". Such is disgusting.

    I say he didn't actually directly say that...but that even the fact that what he DID say is worthy of news is a sign of a rather sad state of affairs

    Perhaps, but that was 1953 and there were 26 years between Moaddegh being overthrown by the CIA coup, and the Iranian Revolution of 1979, with the rise of the Ayotollah's.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    The rise of the Ayatollah's was a direct response to the 1953 coup. It couldn't possibly be a louder response to the West's constant redefining of the word "democracy". The regimes which tend to come after Western meddling always end up keeping the whole "authoritarian" part of our definition for "democracy". That said, I'm just wondering which "democracy" it is you want: the democracy they had under the Shah or the one they had under Mosaddegh?
