Rouhani condemns Holocaust as crime against humanity (TIMES OF ISRAEL, September 25, 2013)
Posted by Orrin Judd at September 25, 2013 4:38 AMIn a major break from his predecessor, Iranian President Hasan Rouhani on Wednesday condemned the Holocaust as a crime against humanity in a CNN interview with Christiane Amanpour."I am not a historian and when it comes to speaking of the dimensions of the Holocaust it is the historians that should reflect," Rouhani said during his visit to New York."But in general I can tell you that any crime that happens in history against humanity, including the crime the Nazis created towards the Jews, is reprehensible and condemnable," CNN translated the newly elected president saying.
