Arab World / Holocaust

Arab Holocaust Denial

B”H
From various Palestinians I have heard different Holocaust versions: 1. The Holocaust never happened and is nothing but a Zionist lie. 2. Hitler made a mistake by killing not all the Jews. Thus, number 2 is actually an acceptance of the historical fact called Holocaust but, on the other hand, Muslims still admire Hitler and say that he was right but, unfortunately, missed killing all the Jews.
I have even heard Palestinians claiming that there never were any Jewish Temples in Jerusalem. One young Palestinians even denied that the Romans were ever in Jerusalem. From this you can see what Palestinians are being taught in their schools.

    PMW: “There were between one and two million Jewish victims” of the Holocaust, says official PA daily

    PMW Bulletin
    April 19, 2015

    Official PA daily on the Holocaust:
    “There were between one and two million Jewish victims.”

    The Zionist movement’s goal during the Holocaust:
    1. “Blackmail the European states financially and politically”
    2. “Bully the Jews to immigrate to the Israeli ethnic cleansing state”
    3. “Increase the Jews’ suffering … to take advantage of the world’s
    compassion for them.”

    On the occasion of the Israeli remembrance day for the victims of the
    Holocaust last week, a regular columnist in the official Palestinian
    Authority daily wrote an op-ed in which he recognized the fact that the
    Holocaust occurred and targeted Jews. But although the writer even called it
    “a catastrophe,” he reiterated false statements that have long been part of
    PA policy regarding the Holocaust, minimizing its scope and blaming the
    Zionist movement for participating in evil.

    The PA daily repeated the claim that Jews have exaggerated the number of
    victims and that it was not 6 million Jews who were murdered in the
    Holocaust, but only “between one and two million”:

    “Estimates regarding the number of Holocaust victims differ. The supporters
    of the Zionist movement have exaggerated the number of victims, claiming
    that it amounts to 6 million, whereas others, unbiased researchers, have
    estimated that there were between one and two million Jewish victims.”
    [Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, April 18, 2015]

    The writer hinted to an oft-repeated accusation that Jews were themselves at
    fault because their non-Jewish fellow citizens wanted to be rid of them due
    to the inherent Jewish evil:

    “Regardless of the number, the bottom line is that a catastrophe that harmed
    the Jews in Europe occurred, due to matters concerning the relations between
    the European nations and the Jews living among them. ”

    The writer also repeated the claim that Zionists wanted “to increase the
    Jews’ suffering” in the Holocaust in order to blackmail Europe into
    supporting Israel – “the Zionist colonialist project”, to further Jewish
    immigration to Israel and to create more “compassion” for the Jews:

    “The Zionist movement wanted to achieve a series of goals: First, to take
    advantage and use this [the Holocaust] to blackmail the European states
    financially and politically to make them support the Zionist colonialist
    project. Second, to bully the Jews to immigrate to the Israeli ethnic
    cleansing state, which was [then] in in the preparatory stages of
    establishment. Third, to increase the Jews’ suffering and abuse in order to
    take advantage of the world’s compassion for them.”

    The following is a longer excerpt of the op-ed in the official PA daily:
    Op-ed by Omar Hilmi Al-Ghoul, columnist for official PA daily

    Headline: “Their catastrophe and our catastrophe”

    “Even though the Jewish people were never one nation, the Jews of the
    different European nationalities paid a heavy price in the Second World War,
    since Nazis committed a holocaust in the Polish [city of] Krakow and in
    other cities in Europe. Estimates regarding the number of Holocaust victims
    differ. The supporters of the Zionist movement have exaggerated the number
    of victims, claiming that it amounts to 6 million, whereas others, unbiased
    researchers, have estimated that there were between one and two million
    Jewish victims.

    In addition, the leaders of the Nazi and Fascist states conspired to make
    the Jews immigrate to Israel, the establishment of which was supported by
    more than one leader and one European state, to serve the colonialist
    ambitions of these states in the Arab world.

    Likewise, the Zionist movement wanted to achieve a series of goals: First,
    to take advantage and use this [the Holocaust] to blackmail the European
    states financially and politically to make them support the Zionist
    colonialist project. Second, to bully the Jews to immigrate to the Israeli
    ethnic cleansing state, which was in a preparatory stages of establishment.
    Third, to increase the Jews’ suffering and abuse in order to take advantage
    of the world’s compassion for them…

    There is no arguing that the Holocaust and catastrophe did strike the Jews
    and claim more than a million victims, which is a crime according to all
    political, legal and moral criteria. However, the Jewish catastrophe
    occurred as part of the [Second] World War, which brought about the death of
    tens of millions of people. The Holocaust was not limited to Jews alone, but
    also struck the people of other monotheistic religions, Christians and
    Muslims, and people of other religions such as Sikhs, Buddhists and others,
    and all communists and leftists. On the other hand, the Palestinian
    catastrophe, inflicted by the Zionist terror organizations and their
    allies – the colonialist Western states – was limited to Palestinians only
    and included killing [them], driving them out and deporting them from their
    homes and homeland, to the unknown of being refugees. It has been nearly 70
    years, and the Palestinian catastrophe and Nakba (i.e., “the catastrophe,”
    Palestinian term for the establishment of the State of Israel) still witness
    the barbarity of the Zionist Jews and their allies.”
