The good folks at al-Reuters ran this story today, as a spokesperson for Iran's Foreign Ministry ,Hamid Reza Asefi said that the West needs to be more tolerant of President Ahmadenijad's little screeds on Jews and the Holocaust.Top News Article |

"What the president said is an academic issue. The West's reaction shows their continued support for Zionists," Asefi told a weekly news conference.

Just as a side note, here is a poll off al-Jazeera:

"In the light of recent controversy, should Iran be barred from football's World Cup"?

Yes : 26%

No : 71%

Unsure : 3%

Number of pollers : 8690.

Looks like 2/3 of al-Jazeera's readers either agree with Ahmadinejad..or they really like soccer.
