Fars News: "Intellectual Praises Ahmadinejad's Role in Revealing True Image of Holocaust"

Fars News, if you didn't know, is one of the many Iranian press agencies which provide, among other things, English articles presenting and promoting the official Iranian government line. From time to time these news agencies put out articles with Holocaust-denying content, such as the following, in which well-known denier Toben sucks up hilariously to Ahmadinejad and assumes a suitably subservient pose in the accompanying photo:
Fredrick Toben, a prominent German-born Australian philosopher, praised Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad for his key role in breaking the taboo on studying the reality of the Jewish holocaust.

"I conducted research into the holocaust before the Iranian president's position-taking, but Ahmadinejad's statement guided me to grasp a correct understanding of this historical lie," Toben said in an interview with FNA.

President Ahmadinejad was also the first high-ranking political figure and president in the world who questioned the holocaust, he said.

Dr. Toben further pointed out that the Iranian president has used a logical method to question the holocaust which is Israel's main tool of propaganda and asked nations to break the taboo and start discussing it like any other historical assumption.

Highlighting the importance of Iran's stance on the holocaust, Toben reminded the ban on discussing the issue in the western communities, and said in the western society in which atheism and blasphemy are allowed, the top officials say we are allowed to question everything except for the Jewish holocaust.

Under such conditions, "Iran is seeking to free nations from such wrong beliefs. Iran is seeking to free those who are not aware that they are slaves of the holocaust." [...]
And their acquisition of nuclear technology will, no doubt, help them achieve their goals.
