Lieberman: You Can’t Make Peace with a Holocaust Denier


avigdor-liebermanYisrael Beiteinu head Avigdor Lieberman said on Tuesday that peace with the Palestinian Authority will never be possible because of its leadership.

Arutz Sheva reported that speaking at a meeting of the newly founded Knesset Lobby to Combat Anti-Semitism which is headed by MK Shimon Ohayon (Yisrael Beytenu), Lieberman reminded participants that PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas is a Holocaust denier, whose doctoral dissertation was entitled “The Connection between the Nazis and the Leaders of the Zionist Movement.”

“There cannot be true peace or a diplomatic process with someone who denies the Holocaust,” said Lieberman. “Abbas’s book in which he denies the Holocaust is on the bookshelf in my office. I do not recall that any of those who welcomed the peace process reminded Abbas of his denial of the Holocaust, which he continues to do in media interviews.

“When I was Foreign Minister, every time a respected person would come to my office and tell me that Abbas wants peace, I would show him Mahmoud Abbas’s book in which he denies the Holocaust.

“Modern anti-Semitism today is in the Palestinian Authority,” Lieberman stated. “You should see the PA’s textbooks that do not teach the next generation, the so-called generation of peace, about the Holocaust. These are our so-called partners for peace…”
