Iranian Leader Escalates Anti-Israeli Rhetoric - New York Times

Iranian Leader Escalates Anti-Israeli Rhetoric - New York Times:
TEHRAN, Iran (AP) -- Iran's hard-line president lashed out with a new outburst at Israel on Wednesday, calling the Nazi Holocaust a ''myth'' used as a pretext for carving out a Jewish state in the heart of the Muslim world.

President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's comments drew quick condemnations from Israel, the United States and Europe, which warned he is hurting Iran's position in talks aimed at resolving suspicions about his regime's nuclear program.

The White House said his remarks showed why Iran must not be allowed to develop nuclear weapons. Germany, one of three European Union countries leading the nuclear talks, called his statements ''shocking and unacceptable.''
Does this guy know he's playing into the hands of the chicken hawks? Do the words "death wish" ring a bell?
