Palestinian Leaders Denied the Holocaust, Now Deny October 7

JERUSALEM, Israel — Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu accused the Palestinian Authority management Sunday of denying the indisputable fact that Hamas murdered tons of of civilians at a music competition on October 7 — simply as Palestinian chief Mahmoud Abbas had denied the Holocaust.

In a video assertion in English, Netanyahu mentioned:

Today, the Palestinian Authority in Ramallah mentioned one thing completely preposterous. It denied that it was Hamas that carried out the horrible bloodbath at the nature competition close to Gaza. It really accused Israel of finishing up that bloodbath. This is an entire reversal of reality.

Abu Mazen [Abbas], who in the previous has denied the existence of the Holocaust, right now is denying the existence of the Hamas bloodbath and that’s unacceptable.

My objective is that the day after we destroy Hamas, any future civil administration in Gaza doesn’t deny the bloodbath, doesn’t educate its kids to develop into terrorists, doesn’t pay for terrorists and doesn’t inform its kids that their final objective in life is to see the destruction and dissolution of the State of Israel. That’s not acceptable and that isn’t the option to obtain peace.

The context was a declare by the Palestinian Authority that Israeli helicopters killed individuals at the music competition close to Re’im:

The Palestinian declare, in flip, was based mostly on an article in Israel’s left-wing every day Ha’aretz that claimed Hamas made the resolution to assault the music competition spontaneously relatively than plotting the assault upfront.

Ample video footage reveals Palestinian terrorists murdering festival-goers of their automobiles, in open fields, in bomb shelters, and even in moveable bogs. Some 260 individuals have been murdered, and plenty of taken hostage.

As Breitbart News not too long ago noted, Abbas has a private historical past of Holocaust denial, going again to his Soviet doctoral thesis, which tried to attenuate the variety of Jews murdered by the Nazis.

Netanyahu has mentioned that Israel will oppose any function for the Palestinian Authority in governing Gaza after the warfare due to its insurance policies of encouraging and subsidizing terror.
