The most sensual Mahmoud Ahmadinejad quotes that are proven to give you inner joy
If the Holocaust that you talk about was real, why don't you allow the subject to be studied? One can freely research any issue, except for this issue, which is sealed. It is a black box, which they do not allow to be opened or reexamined. They do this in order to exploit it.

Liberalism and Western-style democracy have not been able to help realize the ideals of humanity. Today these two concepts have failed. Those with insight can already hear the sounds of the shattering and fall of the ideology and thoughts of the liberal democratic systems.
No country in the world looks upon America as a friend.
When the U.S. is mentioned, people are reminded of war, aggression and bloodshed, and that's not a good thing. In other words, the American people are paying for something they don't believe in.
The Israeli regime is a tool in the hands of Zionists to control the Middle-East and the entire world.
We will convert the entire world to Islam with our logic.
We are confident that the Islamic logic, culture, and discourse can prove their superiority in all fields over all schools of thought and theories.

The world powers established this filthy bacteria, the Zionist regime, which is lashing out at the nations in the region like a wild beast.
We see today that there is a growing understanding in the international community that the extremist regime in Tehran is not just Israel's problem, but rather an issue that the entire international community must grapple with.
Everyone must learn from the past.
Israel cannot continue to exist in an atmosphere of peace and tranquillity without threats and aggression. If this regime stays on one inch of Palestine’s soil, it will continue its threats.
I pass no judgment about historic events.
I defend the human freedoms. Whatever event has taken place throughout history, or hasn't taken place, I cannot judge that.
Anyone who is a Palestinian citizen, whether Christian, Jewish or Muslim, should decide together in a very free referendum. There is no need for war. There is no need for threats or an atom bomb either.

It seeks to deprive nations of their culture, identity, self-confidence and in this way dominate them.
The establishment of Zionist regime was a move by the world oppressor against the Islamic world.
Five million Palestinians have not had a home for 60 years.
It is amazing really: You have been paying reparations for the Holocaust for 60 years and will have to keep paying up for another 100 years. Why then is the fate of the Palestinians no issue here?

Fortunately, Iranians are politically active worldwide.

I have no doubt that the new wave that has started in Palestine, and we witness it in the Islamic world too, will eliminate this disgraceful stain from the Islamic world.
Our dear country, Iran, throughout history has been subject to threats.
We are not afraid of nuclear weapons.
The point is that if we had in fact wanted to build a nuclear bomb, we are brave enough to say that we want it. But we never do that.
Those who think they can revive the stinking corpse of the usurping and fake Israeli regime by throwing a birthday party are seriously mistaken. Today the reason for the Zionist regime's existence is questioned, and this regime is on its way to annihilation.
