MOSCOW, September 25 (Itar-Tass) - President of the European Jewish Congress, Vyacheslav Kantor, told Itar-Tass Wednesday he does not believe the sincerity or Iranian President Hassan Rouhani’s statements on Holocaust.
“Unfortunately, this kind of rhetoric on the part of Rouhani is a propaganda assault,” Kantor said. “When Mahmoud Ahmadinejad /Iran’s previous president - Itar-Tass/ made overt public denials of Holocaust, Rouhani and others only nodded their heads.”
According to Kantor, by stating the recognition of Holocaust Rouhani was manipulating the memory of six million slain Jews.
“Holocaust shouldn’t be a benchmark of political leaders’ moderateness,” he said. “The genuineness of Iran’s intentions should be manifested in compliance with the international community’s demands that concern respect for human rights, and end to supporting terrorism, and “a wrapping up of the illegal nuclear programme.”
While addressing a session of the UN General Assembly in New York, Rouhani said that any crime against humanity, including the crimes the Nazis committed against the Jews during World War II deserve condemnation.
