Khamenei Expresses Doubts Whether the Holocaust Took Place, "Death to America" Chants by the Crowd

Following are excerpts from a public address delivered by Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, which aired on IRINN TV on March 21, 2014:


Ali Khamenei: The kind of freedom that we have does not exist anywhere else in the world. Nowhere – not even in those countries that purport to have freedom of speech. Even these countries have red lines about which they are very strict. In Europe, nobody dares to talk about the Holocaust. When it comes to the Holocaust… It is not clear whether it is real or not, and if it is real – how it happened. Expressing an opinion about the Holocaust or doubting the Holocaust is considered one of the greatest crimes. They arrest people, throw them into prison, and place them on trial. Yet these countries purport to have freedom of speech.

Finally, oh Iranian nation, let me toll you one more thing: You should know that the international community will not make progress according to the intentions and will of America.


Crowd member: Say: "Allah Akbar!"

Crowd: Allah Akbar!

Allah Akbar!

Allah Akbar!

Khamenei is the leader.

Death to those who oppose the Rule of the Jurisprudent.

Death to America.

Death to England.

Death to the hypocrites.

Death to Israel!

Death to America.

Death to America.

Death to America.

Death to America.

Death to America.

Death to America.


Ali Khamenei: The global arrogance (i.e. the U.S.) and the stubborn enemies of Iran wanted to achieve their goals in many areas in the world, but they were unsuccessful and will continue to be unsuccessful, Allah willing. America has failed in Palestine. Their plan for Palestine – a plan for which they exerted much effort – has not been, and Allah willing, will not be successful.


They want to convert the state of Palestine into a Jewish state. In other words, Palestinians – both Muslims and Christians – would not be able to live in Palestine. They would put an end to Palestine. That is what they are seeking. They have been trying hard in recent years to achieve this, but they have been unsuccessful. America has achieved nothing in Palestine. It has achieved nothing in Syria, and in Iraq, it achieved nothing either. It did not achieve its goals in Afghanistan and Pakistan. We have recently been hearing In Europe that America's plan has not born fruit.
