London, Dec. 09 – Iranian opposition leader Maryam Rajavi condemned on Thursday “menacing and demagogic” remarks by hard-line President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad at the summit of the Organisation of Islamic Conference (ICO) and called on the Muslim body to expel Iran’s clerical regime.

Ahmadinejad on Thursday expressed doubt that the Holocaust took place and suggested Israel be moved to Europe.

“Some European countries insist on saying that Hitler killed millions of innocent Jews in furnaces and they insist on it to the extent that if anyone proves something contrary to that they condemn that person and throw them in jail”, IRNA quoted Ahmadinejad as saying.

Rajavi, who is President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), a broad coalition of Iranian exiles groups and personalities, called for the expulsion of the Iranian regime from the Organisation of the Islamic Conference.

“Such a regime is not worthy of membership in the international community and in the OIC”, she said, according to a statement by the NCRI, adding, “Ahmadinejad’s remarks come at a time when the regime’s Revolutionary Guards and agents are spreading repression and brutality to vast segments of the brother nation of Iraq and have moved to create centres of espionage, terrorism, detention and torture. They have imposed an undeclared occupation of Iraq and strive to influence the election in that country through conspiracies and fraud”.

She called for the adoption of a “decisive policy” vis-à-vis the ruling theocracy and for the immediate referral of its nuclear, terrorist and human rights files to the United Nations Security Council for the imposition of comprehensive sanctions.

In October, Ahmadinejad told a gathering of Islamist students in Tehran that Israel must be “wiped off the map” and threatened Muslim nations that normalise their ties with the Jewish state. His comments drew outrage across the world and were condemned by the United Nations Security Council.

The NCRI statement said that Ahmadinejad’s “gestures” in support of Palestinians came at a time when the regime had “proven to be an enemy of the people of Palestine and peace and tranquillity in the region and delivered the greatest blows to and committed numerous crimes against the Palestinian people. The mullahs ruling Iran seek to escalate war and hostility in order to pave the way for their evil domination of regional countries. They know full well that peace in the region would deliver a major blow to their demagoguery and false championing of Islam and that they would be the biggest loser of peace”.
