Deputy Speaker of Austrian Parliament to meet Holocaust denier Larijani in Tehran

Another high-ranking politician of Austria’s conservative ÖVP cozying up to Iran’s Islamist regime

Karlheinz Kopf is due in Iran from October 23rd to 25th where he will meet with the speaker of Iran’s Parliament Ali Larijani, who declared the reality of the Holocaust to be an "open question" and called Israel a "cancer". Austria’s Deputy Parliament Speaker will further pay tribute to the chairman of the Expediency Discernment Council and former Iranian President Ali Akbar Hashemi Rafsandjani, a so-called "moderate" who repeatedly called for Israel to be soon wiped off the map.

Said Stephan Grigat, STOP THE BOMB’s Research Director: "Austria’s People’s Party apparently bets on increased collaboration and trade with the Islamist Iranian regime which sponsors terrorist organizations like Hezbollah and Hamas and massively oppresses Iranian citizens."
