Mayor of Tehran Mohammad Bagher Ghalibaf got permission to criticize Holocaust denial.
Bagher Ghalibaf is a potential Iranian presidential candidate.
He told the Tasnim News Agency he believes he would perform better than Ahmadinejad.
“Suddenly without consideration for the results and implications, the issue of the Holocaust was raised. How did this benefit the revolution?… Denying the Holocaust is not part of our foreign policy.

In you think this is an example of freedom of speech inside Iran, you are highly mistaken and quite naive.
Inside this Islamic totalitarian regime, no servant of the Ayatollah can give public statements on such sensitive issues without prior permission.
Two days ago, I wrote that Iran will change its tactics, if it feels that the US gets ready for a massive military strike.
Hitler was not ready for war with England in 1938. The so-called “peace agreement” in Munich was signed by Hitler to buy time, and to test if Chamberlain was ready to sacrifice Czechoslovakia in a bid to save the United Kingdom.
Then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains, let those in the city get out, and let those in the country not enter the city.
In a similar way Iran will test Jerusalem’s willingness to enter into a possible “peace agreement” with Iran, based on a sacrifice of Jews living in Judea and Samaria. The mountains of Zion is today’s Czechoslovakia for Obama and his team of “peace makers”.
The pressure will surely increase on Benjamin Netanyahu and his cabinet, to accept what Obama and Iran have to offer.
