Tehran, Iran, Feb. 08 – The Holocaust was nothing more than a “big lie”, Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) have said, backing up statements by hard-line Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad who described the great massacre in which more than six million mostly Jewish people were killed as a “myth”.

The spokesman for the IRGC, Brigadier General Massoud Jazayeri, told the state-owned Persian-language website Hemaseh that recent cartoons in the European press depicting the Islamic prophet Mohammad negatively were published to create havoc to cover up such “lies”.

“These sorts of actions show [the West’s”> weakness when up against Islam”, Jazayeri said, commenting on the cartoons which have sparked a wave of deadly protests across much of the world.

“With such uproar, they are trying to create an atmosphere where the words ‘right’ and ‘reality’ disappear, and considerable issues such as the Zionists’ and West’s big lie about the Holocaust are forgotten”, he said.

The United Nations Security Council has twice censured Revolutionary Guards commander-turned-President Ahmadinejad for denying the Holocaust and calling for Israel to be “wiped off the map”.
