The Holocaust conference in Tehran, Iran, is creating controversy. Of course it is appalling that a state would actually sponsor an event supporting the idea that the Holocaust never happened. Unfortunately, the organizers have a point when they say that people are not able to talk about this issue, because denying the Holocaust is a crime in several countries in Europe. Withholding citizens' freedom of speech gives Iran an upper hand in this case, and that is a shame; Iran does not deserve it. (WaPo)
