Jerusalem Post journalist Khaled Abu Toameh reports that Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas was quoted on Monday as saying that the Zionist movement had links with the Nazis before World War II.
Abbas was speaking during a lengthy interview with Al-Mayadeen, a Beirutbased TV station that is affiliated with Hezbollah and Iran.
Asked about allegations that he was a Holocaust denier, Abbas said that he had “70 more books that I still haven’t published” about the alleged link between the Zionist movement and the Nazis.
“I challenge anyone to deny the relationship between Zionism and Nazism before World War II,” Abbas said.
As Elder of Zion comments on Abbas’ sickening implication: “There were contacts before World War II as Zionists tried to save Jews from Germany; for example, the Ha’avara Agreement. Abbas is however trying to spin it as if Zionists and Nazis were cooperating in genocide, which puts him beneath contempt.”
It took Forbes columnist Richard Behar to goad the New York Times to report Egyptian president Morsi’s shocking comments that called Jews “apes and pigs”. This encouraged a smattering of other mainstream outlets to follow suit. How many days before the mainstream media picks up on Abbas’ equally shocking allegation that Zionists colluded with Hitler to kill Jews?
While we ponder this, let us refresh our memories with a picture of the dark days of Palestinian Mufti Haj Amin Al-Husseini’s leadership which initiated a collaboration with Hitler to exterminate the Jews in the Middle East:
simple. Abbas wrote his PHD that the Nazis were helped by the Zionists to conduct mass murders of Jews. He wrote this PHD while he was at the KGB’s prize propaganda institute 1974- 1983, while the Soviets were promoting ZIONISM IS RACISM resoltution at the UN
With the inception of the PA education system in 2000, Abba’s PHD was incoporated into the new PA curriculum. Ours is the only agency to have consistently ask that Abbas’s PHD be removed from the shelves of the PA as a condition for funding the PA schools
. I have bowed out of the local interfaith Holocaust service, because it was a custom to include Hatikvah at the end, but now some Christian groups object as they support the Palestinians and the Muslim Imams would either sit or leave during the Hatikvah. Perhaps interfaith Holocaust programs no longer make sense, at least to me. I do not need the stress of seeing disrespect being afforded to Israel and nor do I wish to compromise by leaving Hatikvah out. This is a personal choice and I DO NOT ADVOCATE ANYONE NOT PARTICIPATING IN ANY INTERFAITH HOLOCAUST SERVICE. I INTRODUCED INTERFAITH HOLOCAUST SERVICES IN 1974 AND WAS ONE OF THE FIRST IF NOT THE FIRST TO DO SO. Perhaps it should be called INTERFAITH GENOCIDE SERVICE OR INTERFAITH DAY FOR VICTIMS OF PERSECUTION. IF I was a Palestinian or a Muslim , I WOULD FEEL AS THEY DO. BUT I AM A JEW AND A ZIONIST. This was a difficult decision for me based on personal principle. The interfaith Holocaust memorials started as well intentioned way for the Jewish people and other groups to pause and reflect on man’s capacity to perpetuate unbelievable cruelty against his fellow and to commiserate as a group and others, with the Jews and hopefully prevent this nightmare from reoccurring. Over the years it was understandably modified to include other victims of genocidal mass killings, though these mass killings were not really analogous, as the Nazis were obsessed at not just killing Jews as a competing group, but Hitler desired to eliminate our creed and it’s pervasive influence on humanity. As a result of extremist Muslim participation and twisted liberalism, this is morphing into a twisted canard where Israel is being blamed for perpetuating ethnic killings against the Palestinians as the Jews were slaughtered by the Nazis. One can understand the Islamo-Nazis belief system with a quote from the Talmud. We do not see things as they are. We see them as we are. RABBI DR.
