It seems that the Arab world is fascinated by the Holocaust. It is featured on many talk shows, some appearing on this MEMRI video. Experts by the warped standards of scholarship when it comes to Jews, give their views, which are gleefully swallowed by the Arab public. Versions on the subject vary. What they all have in common is their flight in fancy. There was no Holocaust. Or only 30,000 Jews were killed. The Jews lie about the figures so as to gain world sympathy and money from Germany.

Although there is an encouraging sign of honesty and scholarship in a program presented by Al Fara’een TV of Egypt in January 2010. It came in the form of the interviewee, who clearly knew the subject well and tried to set the record straight for the interviewer and the viewers.

The program starts grimly with scenes of Nazi leaders, parades, concentration camps, barbed wire and groups of Jews being herded by German soldiers. A woman’s voice explains pleasantly: “Hitler and some of his aides realized that the German Jews were becoming a big headache. So Hitler began sentencing them to be burnt in camps … Hitler began to invade Europe … with every victory many Jews fled. No one can deny that the Jews were one of the main reasons for the defeat of Hitler in World War II after he had come very close to conquering the world.” Dah!!!

She continues: “The Jews managed to reach some of Hitler’s advisors and present them with ideas of a German invasion into Russia when it was snowing heavily. They also encouraged [Hitler] to send his forces to North Africa in a time of great heat.” (One can only wonder at the sources of the commentator’s unique information.) “Hitler was defeated after having burnt a not insignificant number of people who adhered to Judaism in Europe. We acknowledge that there was indeed a Holocaust of the Jews in some camps. But we completely disagree with the figures presented by the Jewish organizations and by Israel regarding the number of Jews burnt. Any observer can see that it was the Jews who provoked Hitler and drove him to take these measures.” Blame those nasty Jews for everything – even Hitler.

Now she comes to the whole point of the program: “The Jewish organizations and Israel claim that about three million Jews were burnt in the Holocaust. But we say the figure did not exceed 150,000. Others say the figures did not exceed 30,000. We condemn what happened to the Jews from 1933 till the end of the Second World War. But this does not mean that the Jews can extort the Germans this way. Germany should not continue to pay for the Holocaust mistake until Judgment Day.”

The gruesome film and the commentary end and an interview begins with Dr. Sa’id Okasha of the Al-Ahram Center for Political and Strategic Studies. He is a man who clearly knows his subject.

Interviewer (a pleasant young woman): “Were Jews burnt in Europe?”

Okasha: “I have reservations about raising this issue. I don’t know why the Arab world cares so much about the number of Holocaust victims.”

Interviewer: “Maybe because of the false claims made by the Jews about this.”

Okasha: “If the Nazis had killed 30,000 people like the figure in your report just because they were Jews, would it not have been a crime? Whenever you kill a person because his religion is different from yours it is a crime against humanity.”

Interviewer (interrupts): “But let’s talk about the figures. This is important to us because the Jews say it is three million.”

Okasha: “No, the Jews say six million, not three million. There are many mistakes in your report.”

Interviewer (wide-eyed): “This is the first time I hear this figure.”

Okasha: “This is the figure discussed in all the literature.”

Interviewer (confrontational): “We have conducted research and so on.” (sic)

Okasha: “In all the literature (it says that) in Auschwitz alone four million died …”

Interviewer (interrupts): “Well, we concluded the Jews say three million. We mentioned three figures – three million, 150,000 and 30,000.”

Okasha: “On what did you base this report? Where did you get three million, or 30,000?”

Interviewer: “And where did you get six million. Our figures at Al Fa’reen TV say this.”

A man called Ahmad speaks on the phone from Cairo: “The figures of the victims of this massacre is extremely exaggerated. The number of the Jews in the whole world was no more than two million.”

Okasha (amused): “Where did you get this figure?”

Interviewer: “… The Jews try as much as they can to exploit their Holocaust … in order to gain the sympathy of the world. They say they are an oppressed people. They say, ‘We have suffered a big holocaust and we want …’ “

Okasha tries to explain but the Interviewer continues: “Why are we focusing on the Jews. Because the Jews exploit this Holocaust and they present figures that are not true.”

Okasha: “The Holocaust was a real crime against humanity by targeting a large number of races including the Jews. There were Gypsies, Slavs and the handicapped.”

Interviewer (stops him): “Mr. Sa’id, we didn’t invite you here to cause trouble for us.” (This is surely a howler in the annals of television interviewing!)

If there is an encouraging sign in all this, it is the presence of Dr. Sa’id Okasha. He exhibited intellectual honesty and the courage to say things that quite possibly, few of his listeners wanted to hear. Judging by this appearance he is a courageous, independent-thinking model on intellectual values – something many western academics and journalists should learn to follow as well.

But it is the last part of MEMRI’s video that is the most distressing. Sheikh Amin al-Ansari spoke about Jews on Egypt’s Al-Rahma TV. Giving a commentary on newsreels from the Holocaust, this is how he related the dreadful scenes:

(In a quiet, measured tone): “Let’s watch the holocausts that the Jews underwent, which were Allah’s way of wreaking vengeance upon them. Let’s watch what the German army did to them.” (Screen shows a series of the usual horrors). He continues calmly: “This of course is part of the corruption of Germany by the Jews.” (Again the Jews are blamed for the depravity of the time). “These are corpses of dead humans and the shattered bones of Jews. (Military music is heard in the background.) Here we have a crematorium where Jews were burned. These are Jews who are being prepared to be burned. Look at these Jews (all naked) dying of hunger or by gas. Note the humiliation on his face. Allah be praised! Abasement and humiliation we brought down upon them and they became deserving of Allah’s wrath. Look at the starvation the Germans inflicted on them. Look what humiliation. And these are people being buried alive. Does this look like a human being? He is being placed in a ditch to be buried alive. This is a pile of bodies … Concentrate on this my brothers. Look they are tying five heads together. These are bodies. Here they are drilling a hole in this man’s back with a nail. This child awaits his turn. Watch their humiliation. And these are corpses, Allah be praised. The Jews are oppressors. They are being deported … These are bodies of the Jews being loaded like animals. Watch the tractor clearing away the corpses of the Jews.”

He begins to speak more quickly and with excitement: “And these are refugees awaiting their turn to be killed. A German soldier (actually, judging by the beret it’s a British soldier liberating the camp!!!) will come now. You will see a Jewish woman kiss his hand. Notice what humiliation, fear and terror have struck her. See how much she is kissing his hand. Watch her humiliation. This is what we hope will happen but at the hands of the Muslims … (Not only does this man of Allah fail to recognize evil at its ultimate worst, he mistakes the woman’s deep relief at being liberated for humiliation. Can this be because he so desperate to see the Jews humiliated and crushed.!)
