Ahmadinejad claims Holocaust may have been made up

From Deutsche Welle:

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has told German Chancellor Angela Merkel that the Holocaust may have been invented by the victorious Allied powers in World War II to embarrass Germany.

Yes, Ahmadinejad, the Madman of Tehran, said it is "a reasonable possibility that some countries that had won the war made up this excuse to constantly embarrass the defeated people... to bar their progress".

Merkel was not amused. And rightly so.

Not that we need yet more proof of Ahmadinejad's disturbed state of mind, but is he really this crazy? Yes, quite possibly. He may have meant this strange letter more for domestic consumption than for Merkel herself, and one wonders if he truly believes what he has to say about the Holocaust, but this is the political leader of a major Middle Eastern power with a nuclear program that may soon produce weapons who questions the Holocaust and denies Israel's right to exist.

I wouldn't put anything by him, would you?
