Fury as Abbas blames Jews for Holocaust

Monument to the Ghetto Heroes in Warsaw

"Mahmoud Abbas has lifted his veil to reveal his true self; a vehemently anti-Semitic Holocaust denying monster".

The fundamentals of peace can not be built on views of the Holocaust which fly in the face of history.

The Dutch Foreign Ministry said Abbas's speech was "unacceptable".

On Wednesday, the European Jewish Congress called on European leaders and officials to cease all contact with the Palestinian leader until he apologizes for his outrageous anti-Semitism and Holocaust denial.

France stated that it "shares the emotions roused by these remarks [of] President Abbas", its Foreign Ministry said. This requires the utmost responsibility in the public expressions of each of the parties. "France reiterates its condemnation, in the strongest possible terms, of antisemitism in all its forms, and its determination to relentlessly combat this scourge".

UNESCO chief Audrey Azoulay also strongly criticized the PA leader's speech, calling it "deeply disturbing", "dangerous" and "in contrast to reality". "This kind of anti-Semitism will encourage only further violence and hatred, not peace". "Israel exists, and all I want is a state so that we can live together in peace".

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Abbas' remarks were "the pinnacle of ignorance" and that the Palestinian leader was "again reciting the most disgraceful anti-Semitic slogans".

Even with this abysmal record, the Times called Abbas' Holocaust remarks "a new low".

U.S. Jewish groups across the political spectrum also lambasted Abbas for his comments.

Thornberry did not comment on Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas' speech at the Palestinian National Council summit in Ramallah, which was condemned by the EU, UN, and the US. "I call upon the worldwide community to condemn the grave antisemitism of Abu Mazen [Abbas's nickname], which should have long since passed from this world".

Abbas touched on a number of anti-Semitic conspiracy theories during what he called a "history lesson", as he sought to prove the 3,000-year-old Jewish connection to the Land of Israel is false.

Giving a brief account of the failed peace process between Israel and the Palestinians, the article notes that "Abbas, who oversees a governing system plagued by corruption and dysfunction, has lost support among the Palestinian people".
