Submitted by Sufi imdad ali (Pakistan), Apr 25, 2008 at 00:32

On one side West fully supported Rushdiee, Tasleem Nasreen, editors of the news paper who made caricatures of Holy prophet and director of film Fitna, and on other side, they condemned all persons who did not believe in Holocaust, even champion and defender of freedom of expression and rights sent to jail eminent western thinker who dared and revealed truth regarding Holocaust.

Further more they out rightly criticized Iran, which organized conference to expose Holocaust.
