It's bad enough that the holocaust ever happened, but denying it is about as low as you can go. Some Americans still deny the truth, but surprisingly, despite the fact that the president of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, has done so, most Iranians do not.
When the Danish press published an unflattering cartoon about the prophet Mohammed, Muslims all over the world rioted. The Muslim animosity towards Israel is well known, so one would assume that the average Iranian would feel that way too, since Iran sponsored the recent anti-Israeli actions in Lebanon, which were committed by the terrorist organization Hezbollah.
But Angus McDowall writes in the Independent that an exhibition of cartoons about the Holocaust, suggesting that it was made up or at least exaggerated, has gotten criticism from people who have seen it in Tehran, and has not drawn a large audience.
Interviewers in Tehran found that most of the viewers who were interviewed after seeing the show found it offensive, and most of the people who had NOT seen it had never heard about it. Most of them said that the holocaust was a historical fact.
