Khamenei Releases Holocaust Denial Video on International Holocaust Remembrance Day

#5285 | 03:11
Source: The Internet

A video titled “Are The Dark Ages Over?” was posted on the official website of Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei on January 27, 2016. As emphasized on the Facebook page of Iran's military, which ran the story, the video was released on International Holocaust Remembrance Day. Against the backdrop of images of the Auschwitz death camp, the English subtitles of the Farsi video state that “speaking about the Holocaust and expressing doubts about it is considered to be a great sin,” but that “it is not clear whether the core of this matter is a reality or not.”

 

Following are excerpts

 

 

Voice of Ali Khamenei: Who assists the fake Zionist regime? Who supports them? Who clears the road for them? Who stands behind them? It is Western powers – headed by America – that are doing so. This is while they say in their slogans that they are opposed to terrorism and ISIS. They are lying. They say things which are not true. This is ignorance.

 

 

No one in European countries dares to speak about the Holocaust, while it is not clear whether the core of this matter is a reality or not. Even if it is a reality, it is not clear how it happened. Speaking about the Holocaust and expressing doubts about it – if someone does this, they stop, arrest, imprison and sue him. This is while they claim to be the supporters of freedom.

This is the ignorance that exists in today's world. We should be awake. You dear brothers, dear people of Iran, Muslims in the great Islamic nation, and officials in different countries, should know that we can stand up against the ignorance.

 

 

"Ayatollah Khamenei, The Leader of the Islamic Republic"
