Fighting for reelection in Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad used President Obama's visit to the region to puff himself up. Addressing a group of international scholars, Ahmadinejad argued that Obama-allied Israel uses the "big deception of the Holocaust" to sway allies in the West. His opponent, Mir Hossein Mousavi, has argued that crackpot statements like these undermine Iran's international standing. [AP via HuffPo]
