Just a day after issuing an apology for an anti-Semitic article published to its website, the European-funded Palestinian news service Ma’an News Agency published an article denying the Holocaust, presenting it as a Jewish lie used by Jews around the world to achieve various goals.

Palestinian Media Watch spotted the article which was published only a few days after Holocaust Remembrance Day.  Among its many hateful claims, the article calls the Holocaust a myth. “The Zionists are marking the 68th anniversary of the creation of the ‘Holocaust’ myth” the article contends. Further claims made are that “there is no basis for [claims about] what happened to the Jews in Germany and that they were cremated in gas chambers.”

Here is the article in full (translation provided by Palestinian Media Watch):

Headline: “On the ostensible ‘Holocaust’ memorial day”

“The Jews have excelled at promoting what they call the ‘Holocaust’. Every year the Zionists hold ceremonies in this place or that to commemorate its so-called Memorial Day with minutes of silence, reading out names of victims, and by visits to a monument in occupied Jerusalem. Even the Zionist Knesset (Israeli Parliament) dedicates hours on this so-called Memorial Day to talk about it. At the present time the Zionists are marking the 68th anniversary of the creation of the ‘Holocaust’ myth, through events and activities.

By means of the false propaganda machine, the Jews have succeeded in achieving many goals by using the ‘Holocaust’. As such, they hate anyone who tries to investigate or research the history of the ‘Holocaust’ and Jewish lies and claims according to which Nazi leader Adolph Hitler cremated six million Jews in a Nazi detention camp at Auschwitz in Poland…

Many Jewish goals were achieved by having these lies disseminated throughout the world. They took advantage of them to win sympathy and acquire aid in establishing an entity for themselves on Palestinian land. This despicable dream came true upon the skulls and body parts of our fathers.

Similarly, by means of [these] lies the Jews managed to raise a great deal of money from Europe as Zionist politicians travel around the world and tell these lies. There isn’t one president or [world] leader who visits the state of the thieving entity, without standing at the ‘Yad Vashem’ monument constructed by ‘Israel’ in occupied [West] Jerusalem.

Many historians have denied [the Holocaust] and agree that there is no basis for [claims about] what happened to the Jews in Germany and that they were cremated in gas chambers…

When American judge Steven Peter visited the Dachau site in order to check out the Nazi detention camps and extermination sites, he stated that the number of Jewish victims of the Nazis in no way approaches [even] one million… (Note: PMW was unable to substantiate any such visit or claim. Ed.)

Similarly, revisionist historians have exposed the false numbers presented by Zionist institutions in the United States relating to the imagined slaughter of six million Jews. The revisionist writers have explained how a few hundred thousand Jews died in World War II, just like others died during the war whose victims number [a total of] 45 million – 22 million of whom were Soviets, for example – in addition to wounded, refugees, and disabled.

Research into the Jews’ claims and lies regarding the ‘Holocaust’ has cost the lives of many historians, and they paid a heavy price for publishing the facts. Many historians who researched the subject were assassinated, were fired from their jobs at their research centers and universities, [were made to] pay unfair fines, and were subject to smear campaigns, social boycott, and political persecution. One of Britain’s greatest contemporary historians, David Irving, was prosecuted because of his book Hitler’s War, and he was arrested for having denied the existence of the gas chambers that German forces used in a detention camp. Similarly, he denied that there were acts of slaughter aimed at the Jews…”

  • I, for one, seriously doubt that Mohammed ever existed. Where’s the proof? Show me…?

    Yes, more evidence of the anti semitic negative garbage emanating from the EU. My question is: Is this an EU convenient oversight or is this expressing an overall EU sentiment which the Algemeiner can sell copy? In any event heads should roll for this disgusting display of recidivism to the dark ages of Nazism with a heavy financial penalty to show that this kind of reporting should not and will not be tollerated in a modern society.

    EU should be sued for bankrolling this garbage

  • Appalling. Predictable. Vicious ongoing antisemitic attack fueled by hate, incompetence and EU money….

    Israeli Soccer Team Faces Prospect of International Ban

    The Israel National soccer team could be facing a World Cup ban, and other soccer sanctions, unless it alleviates travel restrictions and increases field access for Palestinian players and coaches. The head of the Palestinian Football Association is pushing for international soccer’s governing body, the Federation of International Football Associations (FIFA), to issue a ban on Israel competing internationally, claiming Israel’s restrictive travel for Palestinians is equivalent to a form of oppression. “It’s not only the athletes,” Jibril Rajoub explains.

    JNS.org – While the national debate on “Obamacare” rages on past the recent March 31 sign-up deadline, bestselling Jewish author Dr. Joel Fuhrman says the “current disease care model of what we call ‘health care’ cannot possibly be sustained.” “There is simply not enough money available to support a system in which the lion’s share of expenditures is devoted to acute care, with virtually nothing being spent on preventive medicine, i.e. health care,” Fuhrman says in an interview. “To make [...]

The collection represents the first-ever art exhibit of its kind: an exhibit created entirely by Israelis in treatment for eating disorders. Dubbed “Tears of Color,” based on one of the [...]

    JNS.org – Rachel Ament noticed that she and her friends often shared humorous anecdotes that were typically variations on a theme: overprotective, worrying Jewish moms who smothered them with love. That included Ament’s own mother. “My mom is probably every Jewish stereotype scrunched into one,” the Washington, DC, resident tells JNS.org. “At the root of all these stereotypical, worrying, overprotective moms, is love.” A social media writer for Capital One, as well as a freelance writer, Ament decided about three years [...]

    ‎Kosher Lust: Love is Not the Answer (REVIEW)

    Kosher Lust, by Shmuley Boteach (Gefen Publishing House, 2014). You really do want to find something positive to say about Shmuley Boteach. He is a phenomenon; very bright, an articulate bundle of energy and self-promotion. Anyone who has the chutzpah to describe himself as “America’s Rabbi” deserves ten out of ten for effort. I believe that along with most Chabad alumni, official and unofficial, he does a lot of good and is a sort of national treasure. In this world [...]

    JNS.org – In a throwback to the golden age of cinema, Hollywood has declared 2014 the “Year of the Bible.” From Ridley Scott’s Exodus starring Christian Bale as Moses, to Russell Crowe playing Noah, Hollywood is gambling on new innovations in technology and star power to revisit some of the most popular stories ever told. “It’s definitely a throwback to the 1950s and early ’60s,” Dr. Stephen J.
