Ahmadinejad Threatens Revision of Nuclear Policy, Rejecting Freeze

February 11, 2006 - Posted at 1:27 p.m. CST

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) _ Iran's president is talking tough about

Western pressure to freeze the country's nuclear program.

He's issued a veiled threat to walk away from the Nuclear

Nonproliferation Treaty.

In a speech to tens of thousands of Iranians today, hard-line

President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad also says the true Holocaust is

happening now in the Palestinian territories and Iraq.

Ahmadinejad has declared the Nazi slaughter of six million Jews

during World War Two a ``myth.''

But the focus of his speech was the growing crisis surrounding the

country's disputed nuclear program.

The crowd gathered in Azadi Square in the Iranian capital to

mark the 27th anniversary of the Islamic Revolution which brought a

Muslim theocracy to power.
