‘In all of Europe there weren’t 6 million Jews’

Dinsdag, Juli 21, 2009

Palestinian Media Watch Bulletin, July 21, 2009.

Since “it is known that in all of Europe there weren’t 6 million Jews,” the
Holocaust should be seen as one more example of Jews’ exaggeration of their
sufferings, according to a senior Palestinian religious official.

This latest Palestinian Holocaust denial was expressed by Abd
Al-Rahman Abbad, Secretary General of the [Palestinian] Organization of Clerics
and Disseminators of Islam. This organization is headed by Ikrima Sabri, former
Palestinian Authority Mufti under Yasser Arafat and Mahmoud Abbas.

In another repugnant distortion of history, Abbad explained on official
Palestinian Authority (PA) TV that Jews possess “an attitude of superiority
towards others” and therefore Jewish “culture and religion obligate them to
have contacts only among themselves.”

President Barak Obama sees a direct connection between Holocaust denial and
Israel’s security:

“I will never compromise when it comes to Israel’s security. Not when
there are still voices that deny the Holocaust. Not when there are terrorist
groups and political leaders committed to Israel’s destruction.” [AIPAC
Conference, June 4, 2008]

The following is the transcript of the interview on Palestinian Authority TV
(under control of Fatah) on July 17, 2009.

“[The Israeli separation fence is a symptom of] the Jewish mindset, a mindset
controlled by the [idea of the] ghetto. The ghetto means living in an isolated
neighborhood only for Jews. That’s why they cannot live with other groups
because they believe that their culture and religion obligate them to have
contacts only among themselves, based on an attitude of superiority towards
others. That’s why they did not live, for example, in the West, in separate
neighborhoods, but lived in what is called “a ghetto.”

The ghetto was not forced upon them, as is thought, rather, they were
the ones who forced it upon themselves. This [separation] fence is not just one
fence, there are many fences. Look at the [Israeli] city Lod, for example, or
Ramle. There is no mixing between different population groups who are all
Israeli citizens. There is separation. The reason for this is the Israeli mentality,
the ghetto mentality, the mentality of rejection of ‘the other’, and refusal to
coexist with him…

[Jews] exaggerate every action that other [nations] do against any Jew in the
world. In this context is the Holocaust issue, which the whole world still [deals
with]. There is a place [in Israel] called “Memorial for Holocaust and Heroism,”
which tells of the killing of 6 million Jews, but it is known that in all of Europe
there weren’t 6 million Jews.”
