Palestinian, Egyptian News Sites Deny the Holocaust in Antisemitic Series
El Badil, an Egyptian news site, has been publishing a series of articles called “Zionist Lies,” written by Maher Shayyal.
Part one denies that Jews are a people altogether, and claims that Ashkenazi Jews are Khazars.
Part two says that Jews use the myth of being called “the chosen people” to manipulate the world to do their bidding.
Part three denies that Israel is the Promised Land, and says Jews have no particular historic attachment to it.
Part four, published Saturday, denies the Holocaust, quoting famous deniers, like Fred Leuchter, David Irving and Ernst Zundel. It claims that “experts” like Leuchter have proven that there couldn’t have been any gas chambers and that there were only 3 million Jews in Europe before World War II.
Wattan News, a Palestinian TV network, has been republishing these articles.
But don’t call them antisemites.
Denial that Jewish people exist and that Jews were slaughtered by the Nazis are framed as if they are merely anti-Zionist positions.
Meanwhile, Arab media are complaining that Arab refugees in Germany are being escorted to the sites of death camps to learn a little history, and are being scolded by their tour guides when they try to compare Israeli actions to those of the Nazis.
