(A7) In an interview in Hebrew with Israel National News-Arutz Sheva, Middle East scholar, Dr. Mordechai Kedar refers to an outrageous statement made by Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas (Abu Mazen). Abu Mazen declared that the State of Israel committed “Holocausts” against the Palestinian people. In addition, he refused to express remorse for the 1972 massacre of 11 members of the Israeli athletic team at the Munich Olympic.
Dr. Kedar is not at all surprised by these statements, “On the contrary, I wondered when this thing would blow up because as he gets older, he is losing his mental capacities and he starts saying what he really thinks. If until now he restrained himself, now he’s losing it.”
According to Kedar, “Abbas’s doctorate deals with Holocaust denial, but more than that, he understands that the entire Palestinian idea rests upon denial of the Israeli and Jewish story. He knows that the re-establishment of the State of Israel in 1948 was, in one way or another, a result of the Holocaust, that after the Holocaust, the world decided that there was no choice but to establish a state for the Jews. In other words, if he undermines the story of the Jewish Holocaust, he undermines the reason for the existence of the State of Israel, and that is his whole purpose in life. That is why he tries to either minimize it or deny it, especially in the presence of Germans so that they stop basing their policy toward Israel on the Holocaust and its horrors.”
