“The freedom of speech about which the [Westerners] talk so much does not permit anyone to doubt the myth about the massacre of the Jews, known as the Holocaust… I assume that a profound Zionist plot is at the core of the matter. They are setting the Muslims and Christians against one another. This is very important for the Zionists – to set the great Muslim Community around the world against the Christians, and to set the Christians against the Muslims.”“Iranian Leader Ali Khamenei: Zionist Paid Denmark Cartoonist to Draw Muhammad Cartoon,” Middle East Media Research Institute, February 7, 2006, http://www.memritv.org/clip_transcript/en/1031.htm.
