The Irony and Sickness of Khamenei’s Ignorance

Iran’s Khamenei likens Holocaust denial to Muhammad cartoons

Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei appears to liken Holocaust denial to cartoons deemed insulting to the Muslim 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?” he writes on Twitter.

The comment comes as Khamenei and other Muslim leaders rage against French President Emmanuel Macron for defending cartoons that depict Muhammad, after a teacher in France was beheaded for showing one to students.
