Mahmoud Abbas’ Official Website Features His Holocaust Conspiracies

Pales­tin­ian Pres­i­dent Mah­moud Abbas issued an impor­tant state­ment last week call­ing the Holo­caust “the most heinous crime.”  We hope this state­ment will fil­ter down into the Pales­tin­ian edu­ca­tional curriculum.mahmoud-abbas-holocaust-books-nazi-zionism

The moral clar­ity and impact of his state­ment, how­ever, is obscured by the avail­abil­ity of books sug­gest­ing the Holo­caust was orches­trated by some kind of Nazi-Zionist alliance on Abbas’ offi­cial pres­i­den­tial website

Eigh­teen books writ­ten by Abbas are avail­able on his offi­cial pres­i­den­tial web­site in a sec­tion called, “A col­lec­tion of Mr. President’s Books.”

In one the books, titled The Other Face… The Secret Rela­tion­ship Between Nazism and Zion­ism, Abbas argues that Hitler “had the pri­mary role in estab­lish­ing the ‘Zion­ist Entity’ in Pales­tine” by allow­ing “Zion­ists to build a strong econ­omy and pro­vid­ing facil­i­ties for those with cap­i­tal so they can trans­fer their money to Pales­tine… with­out [Hitler’s sup­port], Jews couldn’t leave Germany.”

He also claims that any­one who tries to explore this secret rela­tion­ship will “face an end no bet­ter than the end of Adolf Eich­mann,” a ref­er­ence to the Nazi leader who was exe­cuted in Israel for his role in the Holocaust.

Another book writ­ten by Abbas avail­able on the web­site is called, Zion­ism… The Begin­ning And The End. On page 97, Abbas wrote, “Zion­ism and Anti-Semitism are two faces of the same coin.” Abbas described a form of anti-Semitism called “Con­tracted Anti-Semitism” which he defines as Zion­ist lead­ers work­ing with State offi­cials in dif­fer­ent coun­tries to stim­u­late anti-Semitism in order to force the Jews to immi­grate to Israel.

There is no bet­ter time than now for the bib­li­og­ra­phy to be removed from the Pres­i­den­tial website.

UAE Book Fair Again Features Anti-Semitic Books

The Abu Dhabi Inter­na­tional Book Fair (ADIBF) in the United Arab Emi­rates, which is open from April 30– May 5th and hosts exhibitors from over 50 coun­tries, includes noto­ri­ous anti-Semitic titles among its offer­ing of over 500,000 titles. The book fair is offi­cially orga­nized by the Abu Dhabi Tourism and Cul­ture Author­ity, under the patron­age of Crown Prince Moham­mad bin Zayed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, in coop­er­a­tion with the Frank­furt Book Fair. Books such as Adolf Hitler’s Mien Kampf and Henry Ford’s noto­ri­ously anti-Semitic newslet­ter, The Inter­na­tional Jew, have been fea­tured along­side rep­utable works on a wide range of top­ics, such as law, soci­ol­ogy and fiction.abu-dhabi-international-book-fair-uae

The ADIBF comes just months after neigh­bor­ing emi­rate Shar­jah fea­tured sev­eral infa­mous anti-Semitic books at the Shar­jah Inter­na­tional Book Fair, includ­ing The Pro­to­cols of the Learned Elders of Zion and con­spir­acy theory-laden Arabic-language titles, such as The Jews and the Secret Move­ments in the Cru­sades.

The anti-Semitic books for sale at the ADIBF are listed under var­i­ous cat­e­gories and clas­si­fi­ca­tions. Adolf Hitler’s noto­ri­ous 1925 auto­bi­o­graph­i­cal man­i­festo is listed under the cat­e­gory “Pol­i­tics,” while the Pro­to­cols is fea­tured under the cat­e­gories “Polit­i­cal Sci­ence” and “Strate­gic and Mil­i­tary Studies.”

The book fair also fea­tures sev­eral Arabic-language anti-Zionist and anti-Israel books pub­lished in the Arab world, such as Zion­ist Ter­ror­ism, The Bar­barism of the Zion­ist Entity and The Tem­ple and the Strate­gic Plans to Judaize Jerusalem.

The guest of honor at this year’s book fair is the King­dom of Swe­den, which will have a spe­cial pavil­ion at the fair. The Swedish Ambas­sador to the United Arab Emi­rate, Max Bjuhr,  attended a spe­cial cer­e­mony hon­or­ing Swe­den ear­lier this week.

Gun Advocates Continue To Misappropriate The Holocaust

The heated polit­i­cal debate over gun con­trol con­tin­ues to be tainted by the inap­pro­pri­ate use of Holo­caust imagery by some gun advocates.nugent-weinstein-gun-control-hitler-nazi

One such anal­ogy sug­gests that those who sup­port stronger gun con­trol are akin to Hitler or other Nazi fig­ures. Most recently, rock musi­cian and gun advo­cate Ted Nugent com­pared film pro­ducer Har­vey Wein­stein to a Nazi pro­pa­gan­dist, stat­ing that those who watch Weinstein’s planned film about the National Rifle Asso­ci­a­tion (NRA) “will see that Joseph Goebbels and Saul Alin­sky is [sic] alive in the form of a fat punk named Har­vey Wein­stein, and as he tries to destroy the NRA, it will back­fire on him.” He also said that “you have to be brain-dead to believe that the gun-free zones of Chicago and Nurem­berg in 1938 are a desir­able condition.”

Another his­tor­i­cally inac­cu­rate anal­ogy sug­gests that if those who per­ished under the Nazis had bet­ter access to guns, the regime would not have been able to sys­tem­at­i­cally mur­der so many Jews and oth­ers. For exam­ple, in response to Jer­sey City Mayor Steven Fulop’s efforts to improve gun safety in Decem­ber 2013, NRA board mem­ber Scott Bach said, “…if you’re going to be a Jer­sey City mayor you have to by default be anti-gun…His grand­par­ents were Holo­caust sur­vivors accord­ing to Wikipedia. So you’ve got to won­der why he is not get­ting it.”

It must be noted that the small num­ber of per­sonal firearms in the hands of the small num­ber of Germany’s Jews (about 214,000) remain­ing in Ger­many in 1938 could in no way have stopped the total­i­tar­ian power of the Nazi Ger­man state. When they had weapons, Jews could sym­bol­i­cally resist, as they did in the 1943 War­saw Upris­ing and else­where, but could not stop the Nazi geno­cide machine. Gun con­trol did not cause the Holo­caust; Nazism and anti-Semitism did.

Invok­ing offen­sive Holo­caust analo­gies in dis­cus­sions of con­tro­ver­sial issues is noth­ing new. Such com­par­isons have been used by both Democ­rats and Repub­li­cans on a num­ber of issues, and by numer­ous pub­lic fig­ures when dis­cussing top­ics rang­ing from abor­tion to ani­mal rights to the Israeli-Palestinian con­flict to LGBT rights. A spike in offen­sive Holo­caust analo­gies also fol­lowed the Sandy Hook Ele­men­tary School shooting.
