Iran isn't taking any chances on facts getting in the way of its planned "conference" on the Holocaust. It wants to rewrite history to make the Jews entirely unsympathetic, and so the Holocaust must be "discredited" and ultimately expunged from history. I expect the conference to be treated with the trappings of credibility in too much of the Muslim world.
There is no room for dissident views.

An Israeli Arab lawyer who has inaugurated an exhibition about the Holocaust in his Nazareth office as part of a crusade to teach the Arab world that the Holocaust did indeed happen has been barred by the Iranian government from attending this week's controversial Holocaust conference in Teheran, he said Sunday.
Khaled Muhammad, 44, was denied a visa to Iran to attend the two-day event, which has been widely criticized by the West for Holocaust denial, after he sent a copy of his Israeli passport to the Iranian Embassy in Amman, he said.
