PA Official: Hitler had ‘obvious reasons’ for Holocaust

by admin

Yasser Abu Sido, an official in P.A. chief Mahmoud Abbas’s Fatah faction, claimed that Jews had “planned to take control of Germany.”


Nazi leader Adolf Hitler had “obvious reasons” for ordering the extermination of European Jewry in the Holocaust, as Jews “planned to take control of Germany,” a Palestinian official stated last month, according to a translation provided by the Middle East Media Research Institute.

Yasser Abu Sido, an official in P.A. chief Mahmoud Abbas’s Fatah faction, told Egyptian TV on Feb. 23 that “several European, American and Arab officials have said that an Israeli attack against the Palestinians in Rafah would constitute a no lesser crime than the Holocaust.”

“I am not a fan of Hitler, but when Hitler perpetrated the Holocaust, he had obvious reasons,” Abu Sido then stated.

“They [the Jews] started to bring down Germany in terms of the economy and moral values. Hitler reacted by making the Jews go on the streets and lick the sidewalks. They know this very well,” he continued.

In addition, the Jewish people “distorted many verses in the Torah in order to make them more agreeable for them,” he continued.

“I do not want to cite examples because some people might consider me an antisemite, although it is us Arabs who are Semites, not them,” the Palestinian official added.

In Aug. 2022, Berlin police opened a preliminary inquiry into whether Mahmoud Abbas broke German laws by falsely claiming Israel had committed “50 Holocausts” against the Palestinians.

Abbas’s statement, made during a press conference with German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, was in response to a question about whether he would apologize for the massacre of 11 Israeli coaches and athletes by Palestinian terrorists during the 1972 Summer Olympics.

“If we want to go over the past, go ahead. I have 50 slaughters that Israel committed…50 Holocausts,” Abbas stated.

The remarks constituted incitement to hatred under German law, Berlin’s public prosecutor general concluded late last year, adding that Abbas likely enjoys immunity against the criminal charges.
