Iranian President: ‘Israel should be moved to Europe’

Friday, December 09, 2005 |    

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who recently called for Israel to be "wiped off the map," now says the Jewish state should be moved to Europe, and he questioned whether the Holocaust took place. "Some European countries insist on saying that during World War II, Hitler burned millions of Jews and put them in concentration camps," Ahmadinejad said. "Any historian, commentator or scientist who doubts that is taken to prison or gets condemned. Let's assume what the Europeans say is true...Let's give some land to the Zionists in Europe or in Germany or Austria. They faced injustice in Europe, so why do the repercussions fall on the Palestinians?"
