Iran’s Khameini: Why A Crime To Deny The Holocaust?

Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei tweeted on Wednesday asking why it’s a crime to doubt the Holocaust while it is permitted to insult the prophet Muhammad.

“The next question to ask is: Why is it a crime to raise doubts about the Holocaust? Why should anyone who writes about such doubts be imprisoned while insulting the Prophet (PBUH) is allowed?” said Khamenei.

It came after another tweet in which the Iranian leader criticized France for allowing free speech that permits insulting the prophet Muhammad. “Young French people! Ask your President why he supports insulting God’s Messenger in the name of freedom of expression. Does freedom of expression mean insulting, especially a sacred personage?”

The tweets came in the wake of the beheading of 47-year-old middle-school history teacher Samuel Paty in Paris on Oct. 16, and amid a wave of Muslim anger at France and its president, Emmanuel Macron, over his stance on Islam.

On Thursday, French authorities began investigating another terrorist attack where a knife-wielding man shouted Allahu Akbar (“God is great” in Arabic), and beheaded a woman and stabbed two other people to death at the Notre Dame church in Nice.




  1. While I hate to say it, I’m with the Ayatollah on this one, insofar as Holocaust denial shouldn’t be a crime. It’s ridiculous, stupid, contemptible, insulting…but it should not be criminalized. Or, in my opinion, censored.

    Because if we let them criminalize and censor Holocaust denial, what ground do we have to stand on when they want to criminalize and censor “climate-change denial?” Or, in the Ayatollah’s world, Mohammed-status denial?

    • What do you do? It is intellectual crime. Prosecution as it may families ask world help.

      You are jewish. This is Hashems world. Be right. Supplicate.

      Vane gaffe is unordinary. Torah introduces forever troubled health and being. Israel must have a voice to stand. Holocaust denial is an evil source and it fast grows when our ears are only open to the world and not in synagogue.
