The president of Germany's parliament used a speech commemorating victims of the Holocaust Monday to criticize an Iranian conference last year questioning the Nazis' slaughter of Jews, and to urge the EU to outlaw the denial of genocide. "Statements that mean to deny or play down the terrifying historical truth of the Holocaust and thereby ridicule the victims of the Nazi dictatorship need to be made illegal," Norbert Lammert said. Lammert, a prominent member of Chancellor Angela Merkel's Christian Democrats, also echoed Germany's rejection of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's attacks on Israel's right to exist. "Israel must be allowed to live - like its neighbors - within internationally recognized borders and free of fear, terror, and violence," Lammert said.
