Tehran (dpa) - Iranian presidential candidate Azam Taleghani has criticized the anti-Semitic rhetoric of some politicians in her country, saying it damages Iran‘s image.

"We should differentiate between criticism of the Zionist (Israeli) government and insulting Jews," said Taleghani, the most prominent of the 137 women who have registered their candidacy for the May 19 election.

Speaking in the capital Tehran, Taleghani said Holocaust denial was also the result of ignorance.

"I myself have visited Auschwitz concentration camp and I understood what a crime and a humanitarian tragedy happened back then," said the 72-year-old political reformer.

Taleghani has applied twice previously to be considered as a presidential candidate but was rejected both times by the country‘s Guardian Council with no reason given.

Her candidacy and those of the other women registered are widely expected to be rejected once more.

"Women make up 50 per cent of the Iranian population so the country deserves at least one female candidate," said Taleghani.

She said she would not be "broken" by another rejection and that she would continue to fight for women‘s rights.
