Former Iranian Diplomat: We Accept Nazis Operated Crematoria and Gas Chambers; Hiroshima and Nagasaki Were Just Bigger Crematoria

Following are excerpts from an interview given by former Iranian diplomat Mohammad-Hasan Ghadiri-Abyaneh, which was aired on Jaam-E Jam 1 TV, on December 27, 2005.

Mohammad-Hasan Ghadiri-Abyaneh: Recently, there has been a debate around the world about the Holocaust and the Nazi crimes, and it has been said that the Iranians doubt this. OK, we accept that... the German... Hitler... Germany committed many crimes... We accept that the Nazis committed many crimes. We also accept that they operated crematoria and gas chambers, in order to kill Jews.

Do the Europeans and the Americans view this as a bad thing? Or perhaps they view this as a bad thing only when Germany does it? Perhaps they consider it to be bad because it was limited... Isn't it true that an atomic bomb can turn an entire city into a crematorium? Isn't it true that what America did in Hiroshima and Nagasaki was to burn, in an instant, these two cities, which were inhabited by tens or even hundreds of thousands? Didn't these cities turn into crematoria? This is what an atomic bomb means.

It has been announced that next year the number of America's atomic bombs would reach 10,000. This means they will have the ability to operate 10,000 crematoria, each one the size of an entire city, at least. This is what they base their strength on, and they invest money to attain this.

As for the gas chambers - are chemical bombs, nerve gas or biological weapons any different? The only difference is that the Nazis – so they claim - did this in a closed room, whereas the French, Germans, English and Americans gave Saddam many chemical weapons for him to use against our people.

This is just like the gas chambers, except that the amount of gas is so great that there is no need for a closed space, and it can kill many people this way.


Why do the Europeans defend the claim that six million were exterminated in Mr. Hitler's crematoria? Let's assume this happened, and we will not go into this right now...

Interviewer: But, obviously, it didn't happen...

Mohammad-Hasan Ghadiri-Abyaneh: But let's assume it did. The Europeans believe it. Why do the Europeans support this claim? Who built the crematoria? The Europeans themselves.

Interviewer: Yes, the first and second world wars...

Mohammad-Hasan Ghadiri-Abyaneh: There is an internal contradiction in this claim. They are trying to attribute this to Hitler. First of all, Hitler was not alone. All Germans viewed the Jews in a negative light. Why? This question should also be asked. What did the Jews do that made them so evil? I believe this should be investigated as well. A possible topic for doctoral students is the state of the Jews in Germany at that time and the reason for the Germans' general hatred of them.

The reason is that the Jews had only their own interests in mind, and tried to accumulate wealth. They placed their personal interests above the national interest, and were willing to commit any crime in order to accumulate wealth. This incited public opinion against them.


Interviewer: The Europeans defend the issue of the Holocaust because of their national zeal. This is only natural. But why do the Americans support this?

Mohammad-Hasan Ghadiri-Abyaneh: Let's not forget that the Zionists rule America. The Rockefellers.... America, too, is in the hands of the Zionists.
