Liberman Brands Iranian Supreme Leader 'Hitlerian'


Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman has taken to Facebook to brand Iran's Supreme Leader as "Hitlerian" Sunday, in response to comments in which Ayatollah Ali Khamenei denied the Nazi Holocaust.

"The omnipotent ruler and supreme spiritual authority of Iran, Ali Khamenei, disputed the existence of the Holocaust at the end of last week," said Liberman. "[Proving] that even after [former Iranian President] Ahmadinejad has gone, and after the smile offensive [of his successor Hasan Rouhani], beneath the beard of the Ayatollah lurks a little Hitlerian moustache."
