Following the President of the Palestinian Authority (PA), Mahmoud Abbas, making a remarkable statement in Berlin that the Zionist regime has perpetrated 50 Holocausts against the Palestinians and continues to slaughter Arab civilians every day.
In its aftermath, not only the Zionist regime’s authorities were incensed, but other Western governments launched a campaign of scathing criticism against Mr Abbas.
The vicious rhetoric by the media and Western politicians against Mr Abbas comes against the reality that the Gaza Strip, an enclave of over 2 million Palestinians, is under a years-long blockade, and the horrors of the Zionist regime in Gaza are utterly overlooked by the so-called international community and considered trivial to international rules and regulations.
Many commentators deem Gaza the world’s biggest open-air jail or a forced labour camp far worse than the Nazi’s Auschwitz death camp. The inmates of the Nazi Holocaust got meagre from their jailers to live and work, but the Zionists assaulted even the tunnels that bring in little food, fuel, and medication with utter cruelty. They even attack UN-run schools, relief agencies, ambulances, and hospitals in Gaza.
Despite Israeli inhumane crimes, the United Nations General Assembly approved a resolution proposed by the United States, Australia, the Zionist regime, and Canada, condemning any denial of the Holocaust and designating January 27 as International Holocaust Remembrance Day.
The word “Holocaust” is derived from Greek and entered European culture, meaning to burn utterly. Armenians used the term “Holocaust” to refer to the Ottoman Empire’s genocide against them in the early 20th century.
However, in modern political discourse, Zionists seek to restrict the word’s use to the alleged genocide of Jews during the Third Reich. During the last decades, Zionist politicians have attempted to create an academic coup d’état by criminalising any suspicions about Nazi mass murders.
Earlier, under the direction of French Jewish jurist René Samuel Cassin, legislation was passed in France in July 1990 prohibiting any question about the Holocaust, the murder of Jews during World War II, or the existence of gas chambers.
A violation of this law would lead to a sentence of one month to one year in prison and a fine of 2.000 to 300.000 francs. Later, under the relentless pressure of the US, the UK, France, and the Zionist regime, similar laws were enacted in most European nations, so today, any question about the purported Holocaust incident and its dimensions is deemed a blatant crime.
The notion that even the most eminent historians and scholars do not have the right to debate the Holocaust in the 21st century may seem absurd and reminiscent of the Catholic Church’s inquisitions.
Today, according to the Western double standards, Hitler’s Holocaust was a heinous and abominable crime against humanity. Unfortunately, however, the very same Western governments remain blind, deaf, and mute regarding the plight of millions of Palestinians in the Gaza Strip when Israeli airstrikes indiscriminately attack neighbourhoods, killing women, children, and elderly civilians.
When juxtaposed, the macabre in the 1940s and 2020s are the same; only the location and time have changed. Instead of German guards wearing SS uniforms, Zionist troops replaced their German comrades.
