In spite of undeniable proof that an estimated 11 to 12 million people (approximately 6 million of them European Jews) were systematically exterminated in Nazi concentration camps, during World War II, there are still those who believe it never happened. Or that the numbers were grossly exaggerated. Or in some cases that it was some nefarious plot by the Jews themselves to dispossess themselves of the handicapped and disabled Jews of Europe. This ludicrous, outrageous notion is what the Palestinians are being indoctrinated with, today, via educational videos produced by Hamas. The following video was aired on Al-Aqsa TV, April 18, 2008:

The video claims
"The Satanic Jews thought up an evil plot [the Holocaust] 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."In the video Amin Dabur, head of the Palestinian Center for Strategic Research states:
"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 [for Israel], while the rest- the disabled, the handicapped, and people with special needs, they were sent to [to die]- if it can be proven historically. They were sent [to die] so there would be a holocaust, so Israel could "play" it for world sympathy."Of course, this revisionist theory doesn't account for why so many others were murdered as well: Roma Gypsies Christian Poles and other Slavic peoples Political Dissidents, Communists and Dissenting Clergy Disabled or handicapped People Jehovah's Witnesses Homosexuals Others deemed unfit to live Then it resorts to the usual minimizing the actual amount of Jews that were killed:
"The alleged numbers of Jews [killed in the Holocaust] were merely for propaganda."As long as the Palestinians continue to demonize the Jews, there will never be hope for peace. But is there anyone who truly believes there is? HatTip: PMW
