Karrubi Criticizes Ahmadinejad’s Holocaust Stand

Presidential candidate Mehdi Karrubi, in harshest language leveled against the sitting president, today criticized Ahmadinejad for his stand on the Holocaust.

“Ahmadinejad has done Israel the greatest service by speaking of the Holocaust because now the world has risen to support Israel,” Karrubi said [Etemad-e Melli, 16 May 2009]. “Why do we speak of the Holocaust, do we want to defend Hitler,” asked Karrubi.

Karrubi has been outspoken in his views that Ahmadinejad’s denial of the Holocaust has reinforced Iran’s isolation on international stage.
