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….

    When Torah Teaches Life and Life Teaches Torah (REVIEW)

    JNS.org – Rabbi Gordon Tucker spent the first 20 years of his career teaching at the Conservative movement’s Jewish Theological Seminary (JTS) and the next 20 years as the rabbi of Temple Israel Center in White Plains, N.Y. I confess that when I heard about the order of those events, I thought that Tucker’s move from academia to the pulpit was strange. Firstly, I could not imagine anyone filling the place of my friend, Arnold Turetsky, who was such a talented [...]

    JNS.org – I’m in love, and have been for a long time. It’s a relationship filled with laughter, tears, intrigue, and surprise. It was love at first sight, back when I was a little girl—with an extra-terrestrial that longed to go home. From then on, that love has never wavered, and isn’t reserved for one, but for oh so many—Ferris Bueller, Annie Hall, Tootsie, Harry and Sally, Marty McFly, Atticus Finch, Danny Zuko, Yentl, that little dog Toto, Mrs. Doubtfire, [...]

    JNS.org – Amid the numerous studies and analyses regarding Jewish American life, a simple fact remains: part-time Jewish education is the most popular vehicle for Jewish education in North America. Whenever and wherever parents choose Jewish education for their children, we have a communal responsibility to devote the necessary time and resources to deliver dynamic, effective learning experiences. The only way we can do this is by creating space for conversations and knowledge-sharing around innovative new education models. That also [...]
