Tehran, Iran, Jan. 03 – Iran’s hard-line President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad told a parliamentary committee that his remarks calling for Israel to be “wiped off the map” and describing the Holocaust as a “myth” had a profound impact on Muslims around the world, providing a “shock” that was needed “to awaken the Muslims who are in a state of lethargy”, a government-owned news agency reported on Tuesday.

“The president believed that there had been a positive reaction to his comments and that the Islamic world, which has been in a state of lethargy, needed a shock”, Heshmatollah Felahat-Pisheh, a member of the National Security and Foreign Policy Committee of the country’s Majlis, or Parliament, told reporters after a three-hour meeting between Ahmadinejad and the committee members behind closed doors on Sunday evening. His remarks were carried by ILNA news agency.

The Iranian President, meanwhile, told a meeting of students in Tehran that he was pursuing “a specific strategy” in his chain of anti-Israeli and Holocaust-denying statements.

“Some in Iran and abroad thought that we were making these speeches without a specific plan and policy, but we have been pursuing a specific strategy in this regard”, the Iranian president told a group of Islamist student activists in a midnight meeting last week, according to the Persian-language website Khedmat, which was launched by Ahmadinejad’s campaign team during the presidential elections last year.

“The wave [that these speeches created”> has a lot of supporters among young people in the Muslim world and it will continue to move forward”, Ahmadinejad said.
