A Gaza lawmaker and senior member of the Hamas terror organization denied the Holocaust in a recent appearance on Gaza television, adding that anti-Semitism and persecutions of Jews throughout history were the result of “their deeds and crimes”.
Hamas MP Marwan Abu Ras called the Holocaust a “lie”, during an appearance on Al Aqsa TV, a Hamas mouthpiece, last month.
“If we look back at history, we see that [the Jews] were abhorred in the time of Nebuchadnezzar. This is also true of the times of the Assyrians, the Romans, and the Prophet Muhammad. They betrayed him. They were treacherous against him, and he expelled them from the Arabian Peninsula. Even Hitler hated them, loathed them, and got rid of them. However, everything people say about massacres and Holocaust – these are all lies. Hitler may have hated them, but it was because of their deeds and crimes. Hitler was no less of a criminal than them.”
In 2012, Abu Ras said “each and every catastrophe on the face of the Earth” could be linked to Jews.
