Ahmadinejad: Israel uses 'big deception of the Holocaust" to the West

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has once again called the Holocaust a "big deception" in his latest denunciations of Israel and its allies. The comments come amid a fierce election campaign in which his firebrand style has come under attack from challengers. Ahmadinejad's main pro-reform rival, Mir Hossein Mousavi, has said the president's constant questioning of the Holocaust has undermined Iran's international standing. Ahmadinejad told a gathering of international scholars Wednesday that Israel uses the "big deception of the Holocaust" to sway allies in the West.
