Palestinian Human Rights Foundation Calls Holocaust a “Myth”

January 23, 2013 3:50 pm 7 comments

The iconic image of a Nazi shooting a Jewish family.

The Palestinian Human Rights Foundation (Monitor) has posted an article to its website in which the veracity of the Holocaust is flatly rejected.

The article, written by Dr. Mustafa Ahmed Abul Khair, chairman of the NGO’s Advisory Council and a professor of international law, claims that Israel should compensate Egypt for damages Egypt says Israel has caused the country over the years, up to some $500 billion. As an example he uses Italy’s $5 billion compensation paid to Libya for their 30-year occupation of  the country.

To support his claim, and to justify the exorbitant number, Dr. Abul Khair says,  “the Zionist entity is extorting Germany to get too much financial compensation for the myth of the Holocaust.

  • This guy is a PhD. Give me a break!! Sort of like Abbas’s PhD in Holocaust denial. I guess to get a PhD in the Arab world you have to major in assholeism.

  • Egypt probably lost a great deal more money than that by expelling the Jews or causing them to flee, first under General Neguib and then under Nasser. They were responsible for the country’s wealth creation. It is the dictator-warmongers including Nasser who caused Egypt to become a net importer of wheat instead of a net exporter, to say nothing of the population explosion. If the compensation owed to these Jews whose possessions were stolen were to be added up, Egypt would owe them double the UA$500 billion this idiot is claiming.

  • “A KAFFUR [UNBELIEVER IN GOD] IS ONE WHO LIES OPENLY BEFORE THE WORLD WITH NO FEAR OF HEAVEN”

    Muslim Palestinean is a lie created by an Egyptian born terrorist in 1950. West Bank is a lie, a new name created by Jordan in 1949 over the 3000 year Jewish name Samaria. A 3-state is a lie that accounts two 2-states in the same land as a 2-state.

    Heaven has slapped Muslims – they breathe lies and cannot stop it even if they wanted to. Its called an affliction. Europe, Britin & the UN will meet the same faith if it continues supporting these lies with silence – it is not a neutral stance.

    TRUTH: Jews have never occupied another peoples’ land in all their 4,000 year history. Hebron is the birthplace of Judaism.

  • Muslims revere a sociopath named Muhammad who decapitated 900 unarmed Jews at Quarayza..For any of them to talk about “human rights” as long as they revere a sociopath is a joke.

    Is the Palestinian Human Rights Foundation a myth? Is it a revisionist conspiracy? Can one really consider human rights in a society that has become ensconced in the weltanschuung based on the language of death as the one and only thanatopsis? When one watches young children act out their death wish to murder a Jew–any Jew–as their just reward in this world and to kill themselves in the act of murdering Jews–any Jews–as their just reward to enter the world to come, do these children and the society which empowers them manifest human rights in any conscionable sense of the concept?

    The Syrian Virgin (REVIEW)

    The Syrian Virgin, by Zack Love. CreateSpace, 2015. The Syrian Virgin, by Zack Love, is a very interesting novel. Equally a political and romantic thriller, at times a real page-turner, it gets you intimately involved in the dire situation in today’s Syria, as well as in the romantic entanglements of its mostly New York-based characters — whose entanglements just might determine the fate of that dire situation in Syria. Along the way it introduces a really important idea that somehow […]

    Unpacking the Nagorno-Karabakh Conflict and Its Ripple Effect on Israel’s Region

    JNS.org – Aside from Israel itself, those with a vested interest in the Jewish state are accustomed to tracking developments related to Middle East players such as Iran, Syria, Jordan and Egypt. But much global attention has recently focused on the Caucasus region at the Europe-Asia border, specifically on the suddenly intensified violence between Azerbaijan and Armenia in the mountainous Nagorno-Karabakh area of western Azerbaijan. The Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, while not taking place in Israel’s immediate neighborhood, does have what one scholar called […]

    JNS.org – On Friday, April 22, 196 nations across the world mark Earth Day, the annual day dedicated to environmental protection that was enacted in 1970. Not to be forgotten on this day is Israel, which is known as the “start-up nation” for its disproportionate amount of technological innovation, including in the area of protecting the environment. For Earth Day 2016, JNS.org presents a sampling of the Jewish state’s internal achievements and global contributions in the environmental realm. Water conservation Israeli […]

    New Documentary Explores Holocaust Humor, Role That Laughter Played in Death Camps

    Holocaust humor and the role that laughter played in the lives of Jews during World War II are the focus of a documentary that made its world premiere on Monday at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York City. In The Last Laugh, first- and second-generation survivors, as well as famous Jewish and non-Jewish comedians, discuss their thoughts on when joking about the death camps is appropriate or taboo. “Nazi humor, that’s OK. Holocaust humor, no,” Jewish comedic giant, actor and filmmaker Mel Brooks says in the film. “Anything I […]

    Tragedy Culminates in ‘Celebration,’ Says Israeli Author Who Lost Son to Terror

    JNS.org – Sherri Mandell’s life was devastated on May 8, 2001, when her 13-year-old son Koby was murdered by terrorists on the outskirts of the Israeli Jewish community of Tekoa. Yet Mandell not only shares the story of her loss, but also celebrates the lessons she has learned from tragedy. Indeed, “celebrate” is this Israeli-American author’s word choice. Her second book, The Road to Resilience: From Chaos to Celebration (Toby Press), came out earlier this year. The lesson: in every celebration, there is […]

    For Alan Gross, Cuban Prison Didn’t Harden His Heart or Weaken His Ambition

    JNS.org – Alan Gross used to be nothing more to me than a tragic headline. When I started my position at this news service in July 2011, Gross had been imprisoned in Cuba since December 2009 for what that country called “crimes against the state.” Gross, a subcontractor for the United States Agency for International Development, went to Cuba to help the Jewish community there access the Internet. After his arrest, he received a trial he describes as a “B movie,” […]

    New Movie Shows How Global Economic Instability Grew From Very Local Greed

    JNS.org – When I saw the recent Academy Award-winning film “The Big Short,” I was struck by the sheer genius of the financiers who devised the schemes and packaged the loans for resale, but it left me with unanswered questions about how the properties these loans represented were moved. “The Big Short” was largely about paper transactions, big money, and wealthy investors, and it mildly touched on the way the actual end-users — the home buyers and brokers — played into this […]

    Psychiatry and the Spirit

    Why do we think so negatively about psychiatrists that we still insult them by calling them shrinks? Some medics might be quacks, but we don’t generally refer to them as witches! Shrinks; The Untold Story of Psychiatry, by Dr. Jeffrey Lieberman, is a sobering account of how psychiatry has swung from a marginal, unscientific mixture of weird theories into one of the most common and pervasive forms of treatment of what are commonly called “disorders of the mind.” Is it […]
