representatives who arrived at the Holocaust denial conference held in Tehran
In photos taken by AFP, the Iranian president is seen shaking their hands and

In the Tehran conference, different "experts" expressed their doubts that the
Holocaust took place.
Israel's Chief Rabbi Yonah Metzger on Wednesday night called on world rabbis
to reject Neturei Karta members who participated in the
Holocaust denial conference in Iran , saying they "sabotaged Israel" and
should not be allowed entrance to Temples.
"They betrayed the Jewish people and their heritage and particularly disgraced
the Shoah and desecrated its memory. They tried to stain the Jewish people,
who shy away from this low behavior, with their shameful behavior," Metzger
