Ahmadinejad: Troofer

Here is another troofer outburst from Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. It comes with a “the Jews knew” swipe:

“What was the story of September 11? During five to six days, and with the aid of the media, they created and prepared public opinion so that everyone considered an attack on Afghanistan and Iraq as (their) right,” he said in a televised speech.

No “Zionists” were killed in the World Trade Center, according to Ahmadinejad, because “one day earlier they were told not go to their workplace”.

“They announced that 3,000 people were killed in this incident, but there were no reports that reveal their names. Maybe you saw that, but I did not,” he told a gathering of the Iranian news media.

When a man tells one poisonous lie, why not go for another, this time about the Holocaust:

“They made up an event, the so-called Holocaust which was later laid as the basis for the innocence of a group”

He does have company in Iran:

Iran has launched a website with cartoons on the Holocaust aimed at undermining the historic dimensions of the mass murder of Jews during World War II, Fars news agency reported Thursday.

The site is financed by a non-governmental cultural foundation and mainly based on a cartoon book on the Holocaust published in 2008, which contained satirical cartoons and texts aimed at questioning the Holocaust.

The website, which opens to the Pink Panther theme song by Henry Mancini, reportedly wants to continue challenging the issue and show that “the killing of 6 million Jews in the Second World War known as the Holocaust was a sheer lie.”

Not to mention Westerners who will cover for him. George Galloway, for example (paywall):

George Galloway has conducted an interview with Iran’s President that will, he says, show that Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is not an extremist.

The former Labour and Respect Party MP, once dubbed the “MP for Baghdad North” after his visits to Saddam Hussein, filmed the interview for Press TV, the Iranian regime’s English-language channel. Mr Galloway visited Tehran this week for a conference of “elite” expatriate Iranians. Mr Galloway told the channel that the event showed the wide support that the government enjoyed amongst Iranians living abroad.

The several hundred participants were selected by Iranian embassies and had all their expenses paid by the Government.

I trust Galloway lackeys such as Andy Newman are very proud of their man standing up for a troofer and Holocaust denier.
