Jewish leaders planned the Holocaust to kill “disabled and handicapped” Jews to avoid having to care for them, according to a Hamas TV educational program. As much of the world prepared to commemorate Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day, Hamas TV presented its latest sinister twist on Holocaust denial.
The Hamas TV educational program, broadcast last week, taught that the murder of Jews in the Holocaust was a Zionist plot with two goals:
1- To eliminate “disabled and handicapped” Jews by sending them to death camps, so they would not be a burden on the future state of Israel.
2- At the same time, the Holocaust served to make “the Jews seem persecuted” so they could “benefit from international sympathy.”
Amin Dabur, head of the Palestinian “Center for Strategic Research” explained that “the Israeli Holocaust – the whole thing was a joke, and part of the perfect show that Ben Gurion put on.”
The “young energetic and able” were sent to Israel, while the handicapped were sent “so there would be a Holocaust.”
The following is the transcript, Al-Aqsa TV (Hamas), April 18 2008:
Narrator: “The disabled and handicapped are a heavy burden on the state,” said the terrorist leader, Ben Gurion. The Satanic Jews thought up an evil plot to be rid of the burden of the disabled and handicapped, in twisted criminal ways.
While they accuse the Nazis or others so the Jews would seem persecuted, and try to benefit from international sympathy. They were the first to invent the methods of evil and oppression.”
Amin Dabur, head of the Palestinian “Center for Strategic Research”:
“About the Israeli Holocaust, the whole thing was a joke and part of the perfect show that Ben Gurion put on, who focused on strong and energetic youth , while the rest- the disabled, the handicapped, and people with special needs, they were sent to - if it can be proven historically.
They were sent so there would be a holocaust, so Israel could “play” it for world sympathy.”
Narrator: “The alleged numbers of Jews were merely for propaganda.”
