iran's president and the holocaust

Iran's new hardliner President, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, isn't exactly subtle. He's already called for Israel to be "wiped off the map" -- now he says the Holocaust never happened.

And he said that European countries should provide Israel with a homeland in Europe, which he would be glad to support. How kind of him.

I have generally thought the US should see if any sort of rapprochement with Iran is possible. Not sure if it is possible right now. Ahmadinejad, wow, he comes off like a Farsi Dick Cheney on the hard-core lunatic zealot scale.
