When his Der Spiegel interviewers ask him about the Holocaust, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad turns the tables:
I know that DER SPIEGEL is a respected magazine. But I don't know whether it is possible for you to publish the truth about the Holocaust. Are you permitted to write everything about it?
The answers to pointed questioning by Ahmadinejad of Stefan Aust, Gerhard Spörl and Dieter Bednarz give interesting insights into the German mindset. Ahmadinejad's most revealing answer is in response to a question about his comments causing revulsion in the West:
I don't exactly understand the connection.
Don't underestimate this guy, he's rat cunning personified.
