ADL : Rouhani’s recognition of the Holocaust

(‘minimized with swipe at the survivors’)

Abraham H. Foxman, ADL (Anti-Defamation League) National Director and a Holocaust survivor: ‘’It is about time an Iranian leader acknowledged the Holocaust as a tragic fact of history. But in practically the same breath President Rouhani engaged in the more subtle form of Holocaust revisionism, minimizing it by accusing the Jewish survivors of taking vengeance on the Palestinians in fulfilling their 2,000-year-old dream of returning to their homeland, Israel. This was a gratuitous swipe at the survivors.

''Abraham H. Foxman, ADL direktor i osoba koja je Holokaust preživjela,  je rekao: "Bilo je vrijeme da Iranski lider prizna Holokaust kao tragičnu činjenicu u povijesti. Ali se,  praktično u istom "dahu" , predsjednik Rouhani angažirao u jednom obliku revizionizma Holokausta. Umanjio je njegov značaj na taj način da je optužio  preživjele Holokausta da su se osvetili  nad Palestincima kako  bi ispunili svoj 2000 godišnji  san o povratku u domovinu- Izrael. To je bilo neutemeljeno   "brisanje" onih koji su preživjeli.

In the interview, Rouhani could not explicity acknowledge the historical truth of the deaths of six million Jews. "I am not a historian," he said. "When it comes to speaking of the dimensions of the Holocaust, it is the historians that should reflect on it,’’ he added.

"But in general I can tell you that any crime that happens in history against humanity, including the crime the Nazis committed towards the Jews, as well as non-Jewish people, is reprehensible and condemnable as far as we are concerned."

His immediate predecessor, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, had repeatedly called the Holocaust ‘’a myth.’’ In his statements, however, Rouhani coupled his remarks on the Holocaust with an implicit attack on Israel, saying:

''This does not mean that, on the other hand, you can say Nazis committed crimes against a group, now therefore they must usurp the land of another group and occupy it. This too is an act that should be condemned. There should be an even-handed discussion.''...
