Ahmadinejad Brags of Holocaust Denial

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is pressing the West’s buttons before he arrives at the United Nations in New York this week: Iran’s state-run news agency has quoted Ahmadinejad as saying he is proud over the outrage his denial of the Holocaust has caused in the West. According to the IRNA, Ahmadinejad said angering the world’s “professional man slayers”—that’s the West—is a source of “pride for us.” On Friday, Ahmadinejad questioned whether the Holocaust was a “real event.”
