State Department Takes 5 Days to Condemn Iran's Holocaust Denial


The State Department on Wednesday condemned the remarks made by Iran’s Supreme Leader in which he denied the Holocaust, but only after the Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT) revealed that it had failed to do so for five days.

In a speech he gave last Friday honoring the Iranian New Year, Nowruz, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei claimed, "In European countries, no one dares to talk about the Holocaust, and we do not know if it's real or not."
