Iran to Hold Conference on the Holocaust

This is beyond sick:
TEHRAN, Iran (AP) - Iran said Sunday it would sponsor a conference to examine the scientific evidence supporting the Holocaust, an apparent next step in hard-line President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's campaign against Israel and a move likely to deepen Tehran's international isolation.

Ahmadinejad already had called the Nazis' World War II slaughter of 6 million European Jews a myth and said the Jewish state should be wiped off the map or moved to Germany or the United States.

What do they mean by "scientific" evidence? Perhaps they'll use "science" to show that it was impossible for the Germans to kill so many people.

The only interesting thing here is to see what sorts of "experts" show up. In the same way that one finds it hard to tear one's eyes from a train wreck, I hope they publish some sort of proceedings from their meeting; it will doubtless make for entertaining--and nauseating--reading.
