Iranian official Mehdi Taeb, the head of the regime-affiliated think-tank Ammar Strategic Advisory Base, said in an April 26, 2022 show on Channel 3 (Iran) that the Holocaust was a complete lie fabricated by the Jews, whom he described as "masters of inventing lies." Taeb also said that the Jews were not burned in the Holocaust and that it was impossible to prove that they were killed in gas chambers.

Mehdi Taeb: "In general, we need to answer two questions regarding the Holocaust. The first question is whether it happened or not.
"Everything that we have been told was narrated by people who have been accused of telling lies - not just now, but throughout history.
"Who? The same people who clam that they had been burned. They were, and still are, the masters of inventing lies. They are the ones who make these claims. Therefore, the mere claim that Jews were burnt is in doubt.
"They said that there had been crematoria. When several people started to ask them where these crematoria were, [the Jews] began to contradict themselves. They said: 'No, these were not crematoria. The [Jews] were killed by gas.' Okay, where are the gas chambers? 'The gas chambers were mobile. The [Nazis] had vehicles to which they would load the Jews in order to transport them to the camps.'
"Therefore, if you want an address for a gas chamber... The gas chambers they show are incompatible with the figures they claim. You claim that six million were burnt. If you wanted to burn 50 people a day in the gas chambers they show, it would take 30 years.
"There was no burning of Jews, to begin with. The term 'antisemitism' was meaningless.
"In general, there was no burning of Jews. The [claim] that 6 million Jews were taken and burnt - this did not happen at all. Why? Because the narrative of those who told us this is questionable, and we have no witnesses. The Holocaust is a complete lie."
