Palestinian TV (Fatah), July 17, 2009.
An example of the Palestinian Authority’s minimization of the Holocaust, a Palestinian official claims that there were not even 6 million Jews in all of Europe at the time of the Holocaust. Abd Al-Rahman Abbad, the Secretary General of the Organization of Clerics and Disseminators of Islam, links the Israeli separation fence to the Jewish mindset that he says is controlled by the idea of the ghetto. He says that Jews cannot live with other groups and so continue to live in ghettos all over the world, not by force but by their own choice, and even among their own population. He then says that Jews exaggerate every action against them, such as the Holocaust. He mentions that there is a place called the Memorial for Holocaust and Heroism that tells the story of 6 million Jews, but he maintains that it is known hat in all of Europe there werent 6 million Jews.
