Stating that if someone question and deny this historical event in Europe, he is jailed, His holiness said: Jailing someone for discussion about an historical event is unprecedented during the history. Now, denial of massacre of Jews equals with jail. Recently, some historians have been jailed in Germany and French for this charge.
His holiness evaluated the attitude of European countries before the Zionists as humiliating and remarked: There is no doubt that Hitler was ferocious, oppressor, homicide and very bad treating with Jews and committed crimes against them. However questioning if he has he really killed six million of Jews or not, is a historical issue and what is the problem of gathering and discussion of the researchers and historians for clarification of this issue?
His holiness said: The “Western politicians do not believe in any problem for massacre of Palestinians by Zionists, and stressed: The West believes: There is no problem for genocide of Palestinians by Zionists, but certainly, massacre of Jews has happened during the history, and no one has right to oppose it. They believe in freedom of expression and pen, and if a writer is called to the court in our country, they object, but there is not freedom of expression and pen for this event which is a historical censor.
His holiness stressed on knowing of Western culture and added: Those who afraid of the West, shall know it is saying. The Islamic and Western countries’ thinkers shall not submit to these fusses and turmoils, and form a congress for studying this historical event and check its accuracy and break the censor. They shall review the history of formation of Israeli government to see how they came to Palestine and occupied it.
His holiness called the Holocaust is a sample of discrimination in the world, and said: How the organizations defending Human Rights are silent for Moslems massacre, but do not allow research about their possible massacre and rather it is deemed as an offense?
