ABU MAZEN BOOK SAYS SIX MILLION IS A LIE by JERUSALEM POST STAFF
JERUSALEM (26 January) MAHMOUD Abbas (Abu Mazen), chief architect of the
Oslo accords and cosigner of the 1993 Declaration of Principals in
Washington, is the author of a book that questions the veracity of the
Holocaust and the number of Jews killed, the Simon Wiesenthal Center
The book also states that the Zionist movement was a Nazi partner
in the slaughter of Jews, the center said.
In a letter to Abbas, the center asked that he make clear whether he
still agreed with the slander in the book, The Other Side: The Secret
Relationship Between Nazism and the Zionist Movement, or
whether he had changed his mind.
The book, published in 1983, says the figure of six million Jews
killed was deliberately inflated by Zionists, and that no one knows
whether the actual figure is six million or less than one million.
The book also misquotes noted Holocaust scholar Raul Hilberg as
saying only 890,000 Jews died in the Holocaust, according to the
Elsewhere, the book reportedly says that the Zionist movement
supported the Nuremberg Laws and later deliberately withheld
information about the mass murder of European Jewry.(c) JPFS 1995
