Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas has said he will never recognize a Jewish state and there will be no Jews allowed in a Palestinian State.

Here is the entire statement from Mahmoud Abbas on Holocaust Remembrance Day:

In response to a question on the occasion of Holocaust Day, raised in conversation with Rabbi Marc Schneier, President Mahmoud Abbas said that: what happened to the Jews in the Holocaust is the most heinous crime to have occurred against humanity in the modern era. He expressed his sympathy with the families of the victims and many other innocent people who were killed by the Nazis.

President Abbas stressed that the Holocaust is a reflection of the concept of ethnic discrimination and racism which the Palestinians strongly reject and act against.

‘The world must do its utmost to fight racism and injustice in order to bring justice and equality to oppressed people wherever they are. The Palestinian people, who suffer from injustice, oppression and denied freedom and peace, are the first to demand to lift the injustice and racism that befell other peoples subjected to such crimes.’

‘On the incredibly sad commemoration of Holocaust Day, we call on the Israeli government to seize the current opportunity to conclude a just and comprehensive peace in the region, based on the two states vision, Israel and Palestine living side by side in peace and security.’

If he had shut up after the first paragraph, it could be argued that this is significant. As it is, Abbas is cynically using the Holocaust as a way to say that Jews are doing to Palestinian Arabs the same “injustice”  and “oppression” that Jews suffered under Nazis. Jews are merely other people who are subjected to “such crimes” that Palestinian Arabs suffer today.

The Holocaust, in Abbas words, changes from an almost successful attempt to destroy an entire people into a mere “reflection of discrimination and racism.”

At the very same moment of this cynical statement, Abbas is demanding to ethnically cleanse Judea and Samaria of every single Jew who lives there today.

And today you can read his own book that denies the Holocaust from his official webpage – copyright renewed 2011.

Why does the world continue to be dazzled by statements made by accomplished liars?

  1. When “people” call Israel racist Apartheid , they might wonder why Israel and Arabs are so different when it comes to freedom! Democracy and allowing the world to scrutinize their every move!

    Wikipedia lists 23 human rights organizations in Israel and they are set up to defend the enemies of Israel.

    Wikipedia lists 1 human rights organization for 22 Arab states that is set up to defend Arabs and demonize Israel.

  2. Yes. Co-opting is the new insidious trick to build up a compelling case against Jews. Jews are Nazis. Jews practice Apartheid. Etc. It is despicable, and it’s very dangerous because it works. The only holocaust Palestinians and other Arabs are victims of is the one their leaders are subjecting them to. Look in the Arab streets, their own people are falling like flies! Make peace with Arab leaders? Imach Shemam!

  3. They are even having that campaign in Europe now, organised by organisations as ‘sharia4holland’ especially provocative organizing their meetings on days like the 4th of may in Holland, when we remember all those who died and suffered under the Nazi regime!
