Gays don't exist in Iran and I'm a man of peace - yeah right!

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has denied that any gays live in his country to an audience at Columbia University in New York.

"In Iran we don't have homosexuals like in your country," he said. "In Iran we do not have this phenomenon, I don't know who has told you that we have it."

He has also questioned the Holocaust and believes Israel should be wiped off the map.

Now he wants us to believe that he is a "man of peace" who has "no interest" in
building a nuclear bomb and arming insurgents in Iraq.

Even President Bush's fiercest critics should not believe a word he says.

I'm afraid that the gays of Iran can now lok forward to a special 'crackdown', when Ahmadinejad gets home following his humiliation by the Great Satan.
