A small move in the right direction from Iran

Glad to see this in the news:

The leading reformist candidate in upcoming Iranian presidential elections on Monday condemned the killing of Jews in the Holocaust, a much different stance than current President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad who in 2005 called the Holocaust a myth.

Prime minister during Iran’s 1980-88 war with Iraq, Mirhossein Mousavi, 67, is seriously considered by many moderates and even some conservatives as their main presidential candidate and a strong rival to Ahmadinejad in the contest.

There plenty more of his views I wouldn’t agree with – such as on nuclear weapons! – but it’s good to see nonetheless – and a welcome reminder that when the far-out views of a country’s current leader are reported, that doesn’t mean everyone ther agrees with him.
