For religious, moral, and historical reasons, we repudiate and spit upon the Holocaust deniers conference now taking place in Iran, and stand in solidarity with student, and other, anti-fascists in that great nation, along with the victims of the Holocaust itself.
We further castigate Mahmoud Ahmadinejad as an egomaniacal sociopath and incompetent world leader who has embarrassed the reputation and spiritual world of Islam with his political falsifications and distortions. His attempts to infiltrate the realm of Holocaust studies in order to focus on changing the situations of foreign nations while many of his people go hungry and are unemployed, is obviously a deranged policy.

We will not tolerate the way he continues to embarrass his people and drag the entire nation of Islam down with him, while perpetuating cruelty upon another community and dirtying the teachings of the Prophet. If he thinks the free Muslims of the world will stand silently in the face of his callous rejection of logic and reason under the banner of Islam, he is in for a big surprise.
