-- Rabbi Friedman cautions against strategic abuse of Holocaust Iran-Israel, Politics, 12/9/2006 Austrian rabbi and chief of the Orthodox Anti-Zionist society of Austria, Moshe Aryeh Friedman, yesterday cautioned against strategic abuse of the historic event of Holocaust. Speaking to IRNA yesterday before departing for Tehran, Iran, to attend Holocaust symposium, Rabbi Friedman said, "As one who has conducted research on the issue for years, I regrettably notice how Judaism and fame of our ancestors are abused through distortion of the historical event." Rabbi Friedman stressed that impartial scholars and the journalists, who conducted objective research on Holocaust and its politicization by Zionism, have been named as criminal and sentenced to several years of prison. The Jewish figure noted, "We should focus on the reality that the behind-the-curtain individuals and financial providers as well as perpetrators of some of the World War II crimes had been Zionists themselves." Now another Holocaust has taken place, this time involving Palestinians and Arabs -- something unprecedented in history, he added. The Austrian Rabbi also thanked Iran as the best venue for the conference on the Holocaust because it used to remain neutral during the World War II and was not involved in the event. Friedman described Iran as a model country in dealing with and tolerating religious minorities. "We have been witnessing that religious minorities either now or in the past have been holding a very proper and good position in Iran," said the rabbi. The international symposium of "Study of Holocaust, Global Perspective" is to be held in Tehran from December 11-12, sponsored by Foreign Ministry's Institute for Political and International Studies (IPIS). The Education and Research Department at Foreign Ministry has said the conference would provide a channel for scientific and free debate on the issue by related scholars and experts.
