Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was expected to convene a conference in Iran within a few days dedicated to denying the Holocaust. In response, Israel began preparing for a campaign targeted at eliciting international condemnation of the conference. Iran expert Menashe Amir told Army Radio that Holocaust denial is not new in Iran. "Iran always denied the Holocaust and claimed that the Jews, using such false claims, justified its existence on Muslim lands," he explained.
