Khaled Mashal praises Ahmadinejad’s remarks regarding the Holocaust, State of
Israel, says ‘everyone should have courage to voice this truth’ Ali Waked
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s remarks regarding the Holocaust and
the State of Israel are true statements that represent the believers, the
Mujahidin and the freedom warriors, Hamas’ political department head Khaled
Mashal said Monday.
Mashal, who is currently residing in Tehran, referred to the Iranian president’s
statement in which he expressed doubt that the Holocaust occurred and
demanded that Austria and Germany give some of their provinces to the Jews
to establish a state in Europe “instead of the one established in Palestine.”
“These are excellent statements,” Mashal said.
“Today Iran has a brave leader, whose words may not be approved by
the world’s governments, but are supported by the people of the globe,” he
Mashal also said the Palestinians are proud of the Iranian stance, and that
“everybody should have the courage to voice this truth.”
‘Muslims will eventually win’
The Hamas leader added that many of the world’s countries understand that
Israel is an aggressive country, and that opinion polls conducted in the
European Union prove that approximately 60 percent of Europeans believe Israel
constitutes the biggest threat to world peace.
“People realize the truth but are afraid. The West is afraid of the world Zionists’
reaction since the Israelis and the Zionists are exhausting western society with
the issues of anti-Semitism and doubt in the Holocaust,” Mashal said.
Mashal also expressed his hope that “time is in favor of us the Muslims, while
Israel is in a course of retreat. It is losing the image it has been trying to create
for many years.”
“We, the resistance people, will eventually win God willing,” he concluded.
