Yad Vashem director condemns Holocaust denial

Yad Vashem director Avner Shalev warned on Thursday against what he called the world's indifference to the connection between Islamic radicalism and Holocaust denial. Shalev spoke in response to reports that Islamic organizations in Iran planned to hold an international conference on Holocaust denial. The international community must prevent murderous intentions from becoming a reality, Shalev exhorted, according to Israel Radio.
