Jumblat Says Iran’s Holocaust TV Series Contradicts Ahmadinejad Holocaust Denier

Democratic Gathering leader MP Walid Jumblat said Iran’s Holocaust TV series contradicts statements by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad who had described the holocaust as a “myth.”
“This work (TV series) is an acknowledgement from the Iranian regime that the holocaust has happened and cannot deny that it was the biggest crime of the 20th century,” Jumblat told the weekly al-Anbaa newspaper.

Jumblat said that he had recently pointed to the book: “The Wicked Alliance,” which tackled the Iranian-Israeli-U.S. clandestine talks that failed to reach the desired outcomes.

“Had they (talks) reached (their objective), the situation in the region today would have been totally different,” Jumblat explained. “And the deals they had cut would have changed the makeup of the region and its alliances.”

Jumblat stressed that Lebanon will not be used as a place to convey political, military and security messages.

He said the battle to preserve March 14 achievements of sovereignty, independence, freedom and justice continue to rage.

“The march toward independence remains the primary goal of the March 14 audience. This is what we meant when we said that every compromise which takes us back to the era of Syrian tutelage and occupation is treason,” Jumblatt said.

“Lebanon will not be used as a place to convey political, military or security messages and will not be a country at whose expense negotiations are conducted, nor will it be used as a mail box,” Jumblat added.
