While the current president of Iran claims the Holocaust never happened, he finds no support for this claim from his predecessor. Iran's former president Mohammad Khatami told an Iranian news agency on Tuesday that the "Holocaust is a historic fact."
"We must acknowledge that the crimes committed by Germany's Nazi regime were a massacre of innocents, including a great number of Jews," said Khatami.
Of course Khatami then goes on to say that Israel has "made a bad use of this historic fact with the persecution of the Palestinian people."
Well we can't have everything, can we?
