Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Thursday expressed doubt that the Holocaust occurred and suggested Israel be moved to Europe.
His comments, reported by Iran's official IRNA news agency from a news conference he gave in the Saudia Arabian city of Mecca, follow his call in October for Israel to be "wiped off the map", which sparked widespread international condemnation.
"Some European countries insist on saying that Hitler killed millions of innocent Jews in furnaces and they insist on it to the extent that if anyone proves something contrary to that they condemn that person and throw them in jail," IRNA quoted Ahmadinejad as saying.
"Although we don't accept this claim, if we suppose it is true, our question for the Europeans is: is the killing of innocent Jewish people by Hitler the reason for their support to the occupiers of Jerusalem?" he said.
"If the Europeans are honest they should give some of their provinces in Europe -- like in Germany, Austria or other countries -- to the Zionists and the Zionists can establish their state in Europe. You offer part of Europe and we will support it."

Madman Mahmoud Needs Sedation
The Iranian lunatic Ahmadinejad is ranting again. It is curious to me that everyone condemns his statements, the UN, the EU, Austria, the US, even John Kerry but no one does anything about it. Why don't they save their breath? We all know the man's a nutcase yet the world gives him a stage and treats him as if he's normal. Then when he has one of his fits everyone reacts as if it's uncharacteristic of a madman to say such things. Is this how the world reacted to Hitler initially?
