On December 14 2005, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad became the first senior Iranian politician to deny the Holocaust.
His government achieved another first recently, by officially allowing the propagation of the fake "Iranian holocaust" story.
According to this invented tale, Esther and Mordechai, whose miraculous rescue of Persian Jews is recorded in the story of Purim, were not the victims. Rather, Mordechai was the victimiser, as he ordered the massacre of more than 70,000 Iranians.
