Iran is preparing to move forward with a Holocaust conference in October. After stirring up outrage from the international community for deny the Holocaust, Iran announced today that plans for the conference would move forward.
President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad provoked international outrage last year by calling for the eradication of Israel, branding the Holocaust a ‘fairy tale’ and demanding a relocation of Israel to Europe or the United States.
Following international protests, Tehran decided to hold a conference discussing what it termed “clarification of the real dimensions of the Holocaust.”
Ironically enough, the Iranians moved the proposed dates for the conference so that they wouldn’t cause problems at the World Cup.
