French far-right leader Jean-Marie Le Pen, who has been convicted several times of making anti-Semitic remarks, said Friday that he was shocked by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's comments calling the Holocaust a myth. Le Pen joined widespread condemnation of the Iranian leader's remarks, which European Union foreign ministers called "totally unacceptable" in a statement on Thursday. "I find this shocking and I do not share at all the declarations of the Iranian president," Le Pen told French radio France-Inter.
