Iran students denounce Holocaust denialBreaking News
Never has the hardline leader faced such open hostility at a public event, which came as Iran opened a conference questioning whether Nazi Germany murdered six million Jews.
One student activist said that the protest was against the “shameful” Holocaust conference and the “fact that many activists have not been allowed to attend university”. The conference “has brought to our country Nazis and racists from around the world”, he added.
Mr Ahmadinejad responded by saying: “Everyone should know that Ahmadinejad is prepared to be burnt in the path of true freedom, independence and justice”, according to an Iranian students’ news agency. He accused the protesters of being “Americanised”.

Are these students who protest the upcoming "Holocaust Meeting" fearful of what will, or will not be the outcome of this (open) meeting, as one group attending are well respected Orthodox Jewish leaders.
My first thought is, are these elementry-grade students, or the always thirsty for knowledge college-level students.
I'm a little curious, quite apparently these children are not intimidated by say, the SAVAK scholars of old.
