Iranian leader: West uses Holocaust as pretext

TEHRAN - Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad yesterday again expressed doubts over the true extent of the Holocaust and called it a pretext by the West to gain domination over the Middle East.

"Some of the Western countries had for centuries followed the aim to dominate the region (Middle East) and used the pretext of the Holocaust for preparing the grounds to realize this aim," Ahmadinejad was quoted as saying by state news agency IRNA.

"Why do you claim that six million were killed in the Holocaust? Let us make a research - maybe 10 million were killed," he said sarcastically during a meeting with high school students. "Not allowing any research proves that there is a problem and something is fishy," added the president.

Ahmadinejad also called yesterday on the United States to stop interfering in Iran's negotiations with Europe over the nuclear dispute. "The Americans should not try to make problems. We will talk to the Europeans and pursue the negotiations without U.S. interference," the Iranian president was quoted by state television as saying.

On Saturday the Iranian president had compared Israel's government to Adolf Hitler and said that "just like Hitler, the Zionist regime (Israel) is just looking for a pretext for launching military attacks."

"This regime (Israel), which claims that Hitler has committed huge crimes, is now acting just like him," he said, referring to Israel's offensive against Lebanon.

Ahmadinejad last year termed the Holocaust a "myth".
