Iranian Foreign Minister Under Fire for Acknowledging Holocaust

Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif was under fire Monday for comments he made about the Holocaust - not by the West, but by Iranian government officials, Yisrael Hayom notes.

The daily notes that, according to Iranian state news agency IRNA, hardline Islamist MPs in the Islamic Republic have upbraided Zarif for calling the Holocaust "a horrifying tragedy" in an interview on German television in January.
